Before the show’s premiere, few people were aware Big Meech and Southwest T had a younger sister named Nicole.

Despite having a fairly small social media presence, @ibeennicoleflenory has more than 1,400 Instagram followers to accompany her current total of four posts.

According to TheNetline, Nicole Flenory was born in 1974 in Dartmouth Street, Detroit.

After experiencing a tough childhood alongside her older brothers, Flenory continues to live her life on the sidelines away from BMF and lives in Lincoln Park, Michigan, with her family. 

On 28 March 2021, Flenory wished her eldest son Demetrius Steele a happy 28th birthday via social media, describing him as an entrepreneur, chef and big-three worker.
