In the 1980s, she used fake IDs to make herself clear of the fact that she was two years underage so that she may enter the pornographic industry. She has been a part of many big movies, including her own songs, which have topped in the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs.
Her parents had a divorce when she was only seven years old, and Tracy moved with her mother and three sisters to her grandmother’s house. Her mother enrolled her at Ohio University, and herself became employed as a part-time. Tracy started attending Redondo Union High School but dropped out at age 15 to enter the porn industry where she spent most of her time.
Tracy had a rebellious attitude which she had developed during her adolescent age. She became pregnant at high school due to her boyfriend. Afraid of her mother’s reaction, she went to Hayes for help, who arranged for her to have an abortion without her mother knowing anything about it.
She has also worked as a babysitter due to lack of money. She has also answered newspaper advertisements for Jim South’s World Modeling Talent Agency. Posing as her stepfather, Hayes used to drive her to the agency.
