Let’s zoom on.

Besides, he also has two siblings, an older brother Sulayman and a younger sister Sonal. While his sister has already made her debut in the film industry, his elder brother has apparently shown no interest in the entertainment industry.
Ibrahim Chappelle Follows Islam
As his name entails, Ibrahim follows the Islamic faith. Not only him, but all the members of his family, besides his mother, follow Islam. The religion got introduced into his family after his father turned Muslim in 1991.
All the members of the family, except for Elaine are avid followers of Islam, however, they are not very traditional for that matter. Moreover, Ibrahim’s father is very faithful to the religion and has also mentioned several times that he doesn’t like to associate his name with this beautiful religion. He said,
I don’t normally talk about my religion publicly because I don’t want people to associate me and my flaws with this beautiful thing
Is Ibrahim Dating a Girlfriend?
It may sound very unreal for a star kid like Ibrahim, but it looks like he is not dating a girlfriend at present. In fact, he has not been associated with anyone who can be assumed to be his girlfriend.
Further, he has never made any public statement surrounding his love life. That said, it is highly possible that he is actually dating but keeping it a secret.
Well, for now, all we can do is wait until he actually speaks up about his romantic life if he is having one.

During an appearance in one of his Netflix special Age of Spin, Dave candidly mentioned that his son loves Kevin and that he once asked $250 from him to watch his show. And the most interesting thing is that he was only 12 at the time. He said,
I was at home when my son busted in and he said, Dad, Dad, I need $250. He’s only 12 years old so I freaked out. What’s going on Ni$$$? Is somebody trying to kill you? He said, No No, Kevin hart is coming for the show.
Moreover, he even insisted on Dave take him backstage to meet Kevin. On the matter Dave said,
I’ve known Kevin for years but can you believe I was scared to knock on his dressing room door,

When asked about dinner my son went like, “Actually Mr Hart, we haven’t eaten in several hours.”
