Enough about Becky’s early life, now let’s see how Becky met her ex-husband Tony Robbins.
How Did Becky And Tony Robbins Meet, And Their Marriage
Becky started working in the promotion of Jim Rohn‘s motivational seminars at the age of 17. She was already married with three children before she met Tony Robbins. In fact, she had divorced twice before meeting the author.
Rebecca met Tony during a seminar titled Unleashing the Power Within. The pair slowly became friends and eventually started dating. The couple finally got married in 1982. Tony had also adopted Becky’s children- two sons and a daughter- from her previous marriage.
The Couple Were Parents To Three Babies
As aforementioned, Becky Robbins had three children, a 17-year-old and 11-year-old sons and a 5-year-old daughter, when she met her future husband. Tony decided to take responsibility for the children of his then-wife and adopted them. Although all of those children’s identity was not disclosed for many years, it is now a known fact that actress Jolie Jenkins is one of Tony’s adoptive children. She was born to Becky and her former husband on March 7, 1974. She has made quite a name for herself in the entertainment industry through her works in The X-Files, Shasta McNasty, etc. Becky’s daughter has already grown up and is married to David Pagani, a storyboard artist. Jolie also has two sons Louis Rocket Pagani and Hugo Pagani, making Becky and Tony the grandparents of two boy-babies.
But these are not the only children that Tony Robbins has. He also has a son name Jairek Robbins from his previous affair with his ex-girlfriend Liz Acosta. Jairek is also a life coach and a trainer like his father.
Reason Behind The Divorce Of Tony Robbins And Becky Robbins
During the initial phase of the marriage, Tony Robbins and his then-wife, Becky Robbins, were pretty happy with each other. But their relationship took a turn after some time. They started to realize that something was off between them, so they filed for divorce in 1998, which was finalized in 2001.
Later in an email. Tony Robbins revealed the main reason behind the divorce. He also mentioned that he somewhat had an intuition, from the beginning, that their marriage wouldn’t come a long way. According to him, the main reason why he married Becky was that he did not want to disappoint anyone – mainly Becky. Becky had lots of hopes from the marriage, and Tony being a life coach, couldn’t shatter all her dreams. However, they ended up parting their ways. Tony soon married Sage Robbins, just after his divorce from Becky, whereas Becky decided to stay single.
Becky Robbins Is A Painter
