9. Cindy Breakspeare

Cindy was part of the complicated web of family and lovers around Bob Marley, and is the mother of Damian, AKA โ€œJr. Gong.โ€ Born in Toronto but raised in Jamaica, she won the Miss World title in 1976 and Bob famously wrote โ€œTurn Your Lights Down Lowโ€ about her. In the years since crossing the tracks from uptown to link with a rasta musician, her reputation has grown alongside that of reggae music and sheโ€™s become a well-respected Kingston socialite.
