Who is Rebecca Soteros?

Rebecca Soteros is an American school teacher but is best known to the world for having a former fling with the late actor Paul Walker. Although they only dated for a short time, the couple welcomed a daughter, Meadow Rain Walker. Rebecca was devastated by the actor’s untimely passing and now helps Meadow run charities, left behind by her late father.

Rebecca Soteros Bio- Age, Childhood, Education and Career

Rebecca Soteros was born in 1974 in Hawaii, USA; she is the daughter of Marl Soteros and his wife Julie Ann.

She has not talked much about her childhood, about siblings and education. She attended a university, but did not disclose which one, and would later pursue a master’s degree. However, she started working as a school teacher and gave up her studies.

Relationship to Paul Walker, daughter

Paul and Rebecca met in 1998 and soon began a romantic relationship; a chance meeting turned into a passionate affair, which gave birth to their daughter, Meadow Rain Walker – her godfather is Bruce Willis. The couple only dated briefly, as Rebecca wanted to get married, but Paul wasn’t ready.

As a result, the two separated in 1999 and Rebecca went to Hawaii, raising her daughter as a single mother, where she lived for the next 13 years before Meadow returned to California to live with her father. Rebecca was having problems with alcohol addiction at the time and Paul was seeking custody of their daughter. After a rehabilitation program, Rebecca came to her senses and moved to California to be closer to her daughter. Paul died in a tragic car accident in 2013 and Rebecca and Meadow have been running Paul’s humanitarian organization ever since.

Although Rebecca has not pursued a serious career, she has still earned a decent net worth, and according to sources, her net worth is estimated to be over $500,000 as of the beginning of 2020.
