Anderson .Paak has won the Grammy and looks very successful at present; however, people might not know that his childhood was a nightmare. Furthermore, he was homeless when he was newly married and struggled to make it in his chosen profession. However, his marriage with his current wife, Jae Lin has made him very happy.
Recently, the singer has released an R&B duo with Bruno Mars called Silk Sonic. Furthermore, he has won Grammy four times.
He has come a very long way from the nightmare lifestyle to becoming one of the successful singers at present. And, the singer believes it was all possible due to his current wife.
Jae Lin’s Husband is a Musician
Anderson was born in Oxnard, California. He is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and drummer. His birth name is Brandon Paak Anderson. However, he thought that the name didn’t sound glamorous for a singer. So, he went by the name Anderson .Paak as his stage name. He first gained widespread attention from the music world for his involvement in Dr. Dre’s Compton.
The singer has won 4 Grammies to date, has been nominated for BET Hip Hop Awards four times, won Sweden GAFFA Awards, and has also won and been nominated for Soul Train Music Awards.
He Had a Bad Childhood
When .Paak was a child he witnessed at close hand his father’s battle with substance abuse, and the resultant domestic violence that victimized his mother. It was a lot for a child to constantly see his mother being beaten and terrorized. So, he buried his pain and his confusion in his music.
While the singer was just 7, his father went to prison. Then, for a few years, the family enjoyed peace. However, the youngster turned 18, his mother also went to prison. And no matter what happened in his life, he felt that music was always with him.

He Married His Current Wife in 2016
Although the singer has let his son, Soul, share the spotlight with him on several occasions, he likes to keep his family life away from the public. Moreover, he hadn’t revealed anything about his wife until 2016.
The actor seemed to have married young when he met a girl in church. However, his first marriage failed soon after. At the time, he had to work just to make his ends meet. He even left his education to earn money.
In a 2016 interview on The Breakfast Club, Paak explained that he met his current wife, Jae Lin while he was working at the Musicians Institute of Hollywood. According to the singer, at the time, Lin was a student and Paak was a teaching assistant. The couple used to meet regularly and eventually fell in love.
However, they didn’t get married for a long time. The couple got married in 2011, the same year the couple welcomed their son, Soul Rasheed, into the world. However, their marriage was kind of a verbal agreement rather than an actual wedding.
However, they were struggling financially and had a new member in their family. Furthermore, right after their first child was born, Paak, who worked at a marijuana farm was suddenly fired.
With no money and job, they were moving from friends to friends, what the rapper would later describe as couch surfing until he got back on his feet again.
At present, the couple has two beautiful children. The first child, Soul Rasheed seems to have inherited singing skills from his parents. He has even performed with dad, but his dream is to become a K-Pop star. Similarly, the youngest one, born in 2017 seems to be bilingual.
