9. Cindy Breakspeare

Cindy was part of the complicated web of family and lovers around Bob Marley, and is the mother of Damian, AKA “Jr. Gong.” Born in Toronto but raised in Jamaica, she won the Miss World title in 1976 and Bob famously wrote “Turn Your Lights Down Low” 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 she’s become a well-respected Kingston socialite.
