Ryan’s parents divorced when she was five years old, making Ryan and her two sisters, Brooke and Ruth, the sole caretaker of the house. There was a terrible, brutal custody battle that the girls won, and Ryan was continuously fighting with her mother over custody. Ryan was very rebellious during her younger years and was expelled from her high school in 2021 for repeatedly cutting class. When she received her diploma in 2021, Ryan and her sister, Brooke, had to return to Kingstone, PA to live with their father, who was unemployed. Things were very bad for Ryan and Brooke at this time and it was not until her father began painting houses that Ryan began to get interested in the art world.
Her first brush with the media was while appearing on MTV’s reality series “NPTV”. filming an episode in which she was asked about her real identity and if she thought it was weird that she used her real name, Ryan gave a strange speech in which she indicated that she did not consider herself a real artist because she was not really talented. This information did not go over well with the people who watched the episode, as they quickly formed the opinion that Ryan Ashley Malarkey was not quite as talented as she had been pretending to be. This public relations stunt caused the internet to buzz with stories about Ryan Ashley Malarkey, as she was being painted as a talentless artist.
Ryan Ashley did not let this setback get her down, however, as she quickly put out a new single entitled, “Ryan Ashley Malarkey: New Music”, which was released just before the end of the year, featuring major label producers like Rihanna and Elton John. The single featured hits from major outlets like Rihanna, Elton John, and Juice as well as local Pennsylvania talent, proving once again that Ryan Ashley was no fan of being ignored by the public, and that she was here to make it happen. After putting out a number of singles throughout the remainder of the year, Ryan Ashley finally has her own record to call her name as she is slated to star alongside Diddy, Beyonce Knowles, and Rihanna in the upcoming Rihanna/Malarkey project.
