Dominica Erica Westling (born 2 October 1984 in Uppsala, Uppsala County) is a Swedish actress, model and nanny.

Early life[edit]

Westling was born in Uppsala, Uppsala County in Sweden as the oldest child and only daughter of two children. She attended secondary school in Uppsala before moving to London, pursuing a career in modeling and acting. She has studied theatre and television acting, both in the UK and the US.

Career[edit]

Westling started her modelling career in Sweden, gracing the pages of many reputable magazines in her home country, including Slitz and Moore .[1]

Nevertheless, it was when Westling moved to the UK that her career in entertainment first took off, as she got exposed to a wider audience. Westling appeared in many magazines such as Maxim (UK), FHM (UK) and Nuts (UK).[citation needed].

Having lived in the UK for six years, Westling moved to the US and landed the upscale job of working for Melissa Rivers as her son’s nanny, hence Westling had the opportunity of co-starring as herself on the TV reality show “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?”, aired on WEtv.[2] She has also been featured in Hollywood movies Three7Nine and Murder 101.

Westling has since her modeling career began been featured in several music videos including 88-Keys ft. Kanye Wests video for ’Stay Up! (Viagra)’ [3] and Massari – Bad girl.[4] She has also been featured in music videos for artists The Mitchell Brothers (UK) and Junior Jack (Europe).

As of March 2012, Westling was seen on Swedish comedy TV-show “Wipeout”, competing for Sweden.[5]

Controversy[edit]

In early 2010 it was reported that famous NBA player Shaquille O’Neal had carried out an affair with Westling,[6] whilst still being married to Shaunie O’Neal. It was stated that Dominica Westling and Shaquille O’Neal over at least 18 months of time had exchanged steamy emails and also had cybersex. When asked about his affair with Westling, Shauquille’s only reply at the time was ”no comment”. Dominica has not commented on the alleged affair.
