Becky Robbins is an American author and life coach. Besides that, she is an artist, painter and philanthropist, but is known more widely for having been married to prominent life coach Tony Robbins.
The exact date and place of Becky Robbins’ birth are not known, but in the early 1950s and somewhere in the United States; her given name is Rebecca Jenkins. Her parents are unnamed, but her ethnicity is Caucasian. Becky went to private high school in California – her parents were very well educated, and they taught her the value and importance of education and knowledge.
In spite of all of that, at the age of 18 in the late ‘60s, she married for the first time, and so put her education behind; the marriage produced a daughter and two sons. There is no official data about their divorce.
Her relationship with Tony Robbins
Eventually Becky became aware that her life hadn’t turned out the way she imagined it, so she decided to take the matter in her own hands and find help. That was the moment when she found out about Tony Robbins’ seminars, and in them she saw the opportunity to fix her life.
Becky often went to his seminars, entitled “Unleashing the Power Within”, trying eagerly to learn something, so she sat at front row. Because of that, Tony noticed her; he was 24 at that time. Soon they got closer and started dating, and tied the knot in 1984. Tony accepted Becky’s children from previous marriage and adopted them – her elder son was 17, the other 11 and daughter five.
The beginning of their marriage was full of fun and adventure. Becky found unconditional support in her husband.
He helped her to retake charge of her life, to conquer her fears and take risks. However, the happiness didn’t last forever – Tony even had an affair with Liz Acosta, before or after the marriage is uncertain – which in 1984 resulted in a son named Jairek Robbins. Still Tony and Becky’s marriage lasted for 13 years, until 1998 when they filed for divorce, finalised in 2001. They apparently stayed together all those years in order to raise their kids. Tony once stated that he knew the relationship with Becky wasn’t going to work, and that he married her just to please her.
After their divorce, he married Bonnie Humphrey, aka Sage Robbins. The two of them had already started a relationship before Tony was officially divorced from Becky – she has stayed officially single.
Who is Tony Robbins?
Tony Robbins is an American life coach, author and philanthropist, and is famous for his self-help books, seminars and infomercials. He was born on 29th February 1960, under his birth name of Anthony J. Mahavoric, in North Hollywood, California, the eldest of three siblings. His parents divorced when he was seven, and his mother remarried to Jim Robbins, who adopted Tony when he was 12 – he uses his last name.
Tony grew up in Glendora, where he attended local high school. During his adolescence, he worked as a handyman to support his siblings, but at the age of 17 he left home because, in his words, it was very abusive – he never returned. He worked as a janitor, and he didn’t go to college.
He started his career by working for Jim Rohn, a motivational speaker, promoting the latter’s seminars. In the 1980s he met John Grinder, a co-founder of “Neurolinguistic Programming”, and they became partners.
Robbins used this partnership to learn new things and then incorporate them into his seminars. In 1988, he launched his first infomercial entitled “Personal Power”. This infomercial contributed to the promotion of his services as a “peak performance coach” and also brought him popularity. In his first infomercials appeared some celebrities such as an actor Martin Sheen and American Football quarterback Fran Tarkenton. Three years after his first infomercial, it was estimated that 100 million Americans had seen his work. In 1997, he started a seminar called “Leadership Academy”, and almost four million people attended his seminars.

STRESS into a lifestyle,
INSTANT GRATIFICATION into an addiction… https://t.co/Qxm8cM0naa pic.twitter.com/g3CuB3ZBpV
