Even though Paul Walker was blessed with immense charisma and talent for acting, his personal life was far from what he would have liked. For years, Paul was estranged from the mother of his daughter, Rebecca McBrian. The pair who had originally hooked up in high school were too young to tie the knot and faced with the decision to choose between his career and family, Paul decided that he was not ready for the next big step. At the time of Paul’s death, he had not talked to Rebecca for years and there is little mention of Rebbecca in Paul’s bios. So, for this article, we will take a look at the estranged relationship between Paul Walker and Rebecca McBrian.
Rebecca Soteros was born in 1974 in the United States. Not much is known about Rebecca’s early life and given how she was estranged from Paul right from their early years, it makes sense that there is little mention of Rebecca in the media. Not much is known about her education but given her profession as a school teacher, it makes sense that Rebeccas at least has a college degree.
Career and Relationship with Paul Walker:
It is not known as to how and where and Paul and Rebecca first met. Many sources report that Paul first met Rebecca way before his time in the spotlight and the pair fell in love. Eventually, Rebecca got pregnant with the pair’s only daughter, Meadow Rain Walker.
Meadow was born on the 4th of November, 1998, and Rebecca wanted to get married to Paul following the birth of their daughter. However, faced with a choice between furthering his career and marriage early on, Paul decided to choose his career. The pair split shortly after and Rebecca moved to Hawaii with their daughter to work as a teacher.
Following her move to Hawaii, Rebbecca found herself trapped in a vicious cycle of alcoholism and ended up neglecting her responsibilities as a mother. In 2003, Rebbecca was arrested for drunk driving and while Meadow stayed with her mother for most of her early years, she moved to live with Paul in 2011. Rebecca was arrested in 2013 for a second time for drunk driving and was later inducted into a rehabilitation facility.
Paul’s accident and life after:
On the 30th of November, 2013, Paul Walker and Roger Rodas crashed into a concrete lamp post and two trees. At the time of the crash, the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT was going at a speed of 72 km/h and immediately caught on fire. Both Walker and Rodas were pronounced dead on the spot. Following the death of her ex-boyfriend, Rebecca made the move back to California, in hopes of trying to get close to her daughter once again.
Following Walker’s death in 2013, it was announced that full custody of Meadow would be given to her mother. Meadow who was just 15-at the time made the decision to stay with her mother which ultimately led her grandmother, Cheryl, to withdraw her claim for Medow’s custody.
Not much is known of Rebecca following Walkers’ death and she is barely seen on media. It is believed that Rebecca remarried but details on her marriage have never been revealed to the media.
