Rock and Roll star Frank Zappa‘s daughter Diva Zappa was born to his wife Gail Zappa. Diva was born as Diva Muffin Zappa on July 20, 1979, in Los Angeles, California. Her parents were in a happily married relationship until her father’s death in 1993. Moreover, Diva’s mother, also known as Adelaide Gail Sloatman, died in 2015.
Diva is Frank Zappa’s youngest child with his wife Gail. Through her parents’ marriage, Diva Zappa has three biological siblings, two brothers, and a sister. Star daughter Diva’s brothers are Dweezil Zappa and Ahmet Zappa, while her sibling sister is the beautiful Moon Zappa. Diva is the aunt of Moon’s daughter, Mathilda Plum Doucette. After her parents’ death, Frank and Gail Zappa’s children are the rightful heirs of the Zappa Family Trust, which allows them to receive money through their father’s legacy.

Diva Zappa Misses Her Mother Gail Zappa Very Much
There’s nothing more Diva misses than her mother Gail Zappa. Diva’s mother Gail passed away in 2015 in Los Angeles, where she lived with her family. Following her death, Diva was in shock and couldn’t bear the pain of being without her loving mother.
Diva can’t wait to share all the fun moments she has had since her mother’s passing. During her childhood, Diva’s parents allowed her and her siblings swear at their home, as long as they weren’t causing trouble or starting fights. Clearly, her family members very liberal and outspoken. They don’t hesitate to express their opinions, even if it means using curse words.
Following her father Frank Zappa’s death, Diva’s mother started the Zappa Family Trust, which owns rights to her father’s music videos and albums. After Gail died in October 2015, Diva’s siblings are now in control of their father Frank’s legacy. They receive money through the trust. However, the family apparently got into a dispute about unfair diving of shares.
