Not done You have no source to back up your changes, and you haven't even said what you want changed. --Rschen7754 23:06, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Date of birth[edit]

I have removed the dob and age until a reliable source confirms it, given the edit-warring going on over it here. Nikthestoned 09:29, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

This "article" references her birthday as being April 15, I have no opinion as to its veracity or its reliability. - TheDaveRoss (talk) 20:45, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

year she was born...[edit]

I know of karlie Redd... last i knew she was born in 1971 and is 41 years old and that is a fact.... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nicqua (talkcontribs) 07:18, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

What's the matter with people these days? Her age is none of your or anyone's business. Fans should stop with their obsession about knowing everything about celebrities. (talk) 22:00, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

These seem to be ok for age, right? [1]CrazyAces489 (talk) 07:56, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

No, sure doesn't look OK to me, especially given the variety of dates cite by various publications. Why does it matter so much to you to add this? Nikthestunned 09:39, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

I want an accurate wikipedia that has a strong inclusionist policy. Since this was deleted on your talk page, I will ask here. [2] I provided 3 sources which stated her name. [[1]] , [2] [3] According to WP:BLPPRIVACY. You used her IMDB [3], which states on the page the name Karlie Lewis in 2005. [4]. Although many people have provided links that her name is Keisha Lewis [5] who is also on IMDB. [6] I fail to understand why you deleted information that might age her [7] not long after I put up a reliable source concerning this. [8] . How is it ok to sue IMDB in one case but not the other? The use of her name is fine. We have people who use stage names all the time. Such as Carlos Irwin Estévez or Eric Marlon Bishop or even Reginald Kenneth Dwight. Lying or not disclosing age is common among celebrities such as Rebel Wilson [9] and Jennifer Lopez [10] with a dob of 1970 [11] but also a date of birth of 1969 [12]. I don't see the big deal about putting up a year or birth. She does have an adult daughter. [13]. Let me chime in an admin for an opinion @Bishonen: CrazyAces489 (talk) 15:59, 13 November 2015 (UTC)


Strong inculsionist policy? I want one which states accurate information sourced by (preferably) multiple reliable sources. You have provided one book index which mentions the name "Karlie Redd" exactly zero times, so is useless and is clearly original research. The VH1 article shows the exact reason this information should not be included; it speculated she's either 37, 34, 40, 46, 35, or in her twenties. The last source, straightfromthea, is a gossip blog and therefore not reliable at all. Please provide reliable sources for changes to BLP articles, especially when the information is being refuted by the person in question.
The imdb link I added was to the External Sources section, which does not support any information. If you feel this page is not that of Karlie Redd, feel free to remove it. I'll concede this does state the previous name of "Karlie Lewis" so I've re-added this. I see no reliable sources with Karlie Redd = Keisha Lewis, however. Nikthestunned 16:30, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
Karlie Redd = Karlie Lewis [1]. Karlie Lewis = Keisha "Karlie" Lewis. [2] CrazyAces489 (talk) 16:58, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: as you have not cited reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to, or changed in, any article. - Arjayay (talk) 07:07, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

This is Karlie Redd's manager. Please correct and maintain her Date of Birth as April 15 with no year listed and protect it permanently. April 15 is her correct Date of Birth. The year of birth listed is incorrect and we do not wish to make the year public. It appears fans are entering this account and updating it on their own. Feel free to contact me via email to [redacted] or phone [redacted] with any questions.

Thank you,

Dora Din

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. Even if you can credential yourself to the Volunteer Response Team as Redd's manager, we won't change the date of birth without a reliable source. —C.Fred (talk) 15:53, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
That said, I've removed the date of birth because, while there were two sources listed, one is not reliable, and the other does not mention a date. WP:BLP requires assertions in biographies to be backed up by published, reliable sources. —C.Fred (talk) 15:58, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Birth name[edit]

IMDB is generally not accepted as a reliable source for biographical information, only for credits information. That said, her IMDB page lists some of her early credits as Karlie Lewis and, before that, Keisha Lewis.

In light of that, what is the source that says Karlie Lewis is her birth name? —C.Fred (talk) 18:00, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
