Monalisa Perez Biography and Career
Monalisa Perez also known as Monalisa and Fam (previously La MonaLisa) on YouTube, was an American YouTuber who specialized in cosmetics, fashion, and vlogs. Before the contentious occurrence of the life-threatening stunt, she and her friends had done outside vlogs together that included challenges, pranks, and stunts.
She was born on March 18, 1998. Monalisa has two children and resides in Minnesota.
Controversy and Tragedy
Pedro Ruiz (January 27, 1995 – June 26, 2018), Monalisa’s former lover, sought to make a viral video by doing a life-threatening act on June 26, 2018. Pedro would put a hardcover book in front of his chest and read it.
Monalisa Perez, his wife, would fire a 50 caliber Desert Eagle handgun at the book. The plan was for the bullet to be deflected by the book, preventing Pedro from being hit. As they attempted, Monalisa was only a foot away from Pedro.
The bullet travels through the book and into Pedro’s chest as the gun fires. Monalisa phones 911 right away to report the event. Pedro had passed away while on his way to the hospital. Monalisa Perez was pregnant with her second child, and her 3-year-old daughter had witnessed the incident.
Prior to the Stunt
Pedro had previously outlined the stunt in a video for ‘The Whisper Challenge,’ and discussed the possibility of death as a result of the stunt.
Many people described it in the comments and stated it was frightening and ironic. Other than the trick in action, the video of the stunt was shared a year after the incident. They had discussed the size of the bullet, which was the same length as a watch’s clock.
Monalisa Perez further claimed that they had tested the prank with no one watching and that it had worked, with the book stopping the bullet. Monalisa, on the other hand, was using a tougher book and was standing further away than the stunt actually took place.
Monalisa Perez Instagram
Her Instagram handle can be reached at monalisa.perez and is not very popular nowadays. This must be because of the incident. Her account has been followed by barely over 6k people where Monalisa Perez posts beauty and makeup related posts.
After the stunt: current life and relationship
Monalisa Perez and her fiancé Tyler Blake have both experienced trauma in their lives, but they’ve found solace through art and the Wake clothing line they founded.
Blake may have succumbed to peer pressure and joined a gang in southside Chicago when he was younger. Monalisa Perez had been on the verge of committing suicide for more than a year after pleading guilty to second-degree manslaughter. She recieved a staggering six-month prison term in 2017 in Ada, Minnesota, for a YouTube stunt gone awry with then-boyfriend Pedro Ruiz III.
