Jae Lin is the wife of American singer and rapper Anderson .Paak, and is famous in relation to her hubby.

On the other hand, the rapper has led a full music career that has seen him win accolades. Meanwhile, he has repeatedly stated that his success owes much to his wife’s support.

While the details are scarce, we still compiled ten facts about her and her celebrity spouse. We start this article with those.

Early life

Jae Lin was born around the late 1980s or early 1990s, although we can’t be sure. Sources peg her at being around 30 years old or older, and given that her hubby, Anderson Paak, was 36 years old when this article was published, it makes sense that she is also about that age or younger.

Also, her parents might have migrated to the US after her birth. We could not confirm the exact time, but she was born in South Korea; at least, that is what an online source claims.

We found no details about her parents that would point to who they were, although we did read that they also originated from South Korea.


As much as their career goes, Jae Lin has not had much of it. Despite her being a graduate (or at least a former student) of the Musicians Institute of Hollywood, based in California. It appears that she did not do anything professionally with the knowledge she gathered there. Or, if she did, it was on a small scale, like teaching or something in that category.

Paak sometimes goes to perform with his wife in the audience. They have also been spotted backstage together a couple of times. One famous incident was at a December 2021 concert when Anderson Paak wife, Jae Lin, posed with BTS singer Jin for a photo.

Personal life

Her personal life is the reason why she is well known. Jae Lin is married to Brandon Paak Anderson, who is known by his stage name Anderson .Paak. It is not clear if she took his last name after their marriage; if so, she should be Jae Lin Paak, officially.

She was his second wife, but he claims that, as quoted in a Bustle publication, she is the one that matters. Likely, because of how loyal she has been to him.

The two of them, as well as their first son, were homeless for some time after he lost his job as a Mary Jane farm worker in Santa Barbara. Different sources claim that the rapper had been a teacher at the time his would-be wife was a student. However, there are sources (more credible) that discredit this narrative. Instead, they claim they met in college in the mid-2000s as students.

After their rough days, it appears that Paak is doing everything to ensure that his wife enjoys the success he has found.

Meanwhile, for such a heavily tattooed person, we have not found one that references Jae Lin. Likely, Anderson Paak wife did not want him to mark her name on his body because he got one for his first son, Soul.

Anderson Paak wiki

Getting to know a bit more about Anderson Paak may also shed more details into the life of his second wife. First off, there is no information out there about his first wife. We could only gather, from a source, that he had met her when he was a drummer for a local church that his family attended.

Regardless, the marriage was short-lived for whatever reason. Then, he met Jae Lin. His new wife is somewhat linked to his mother. How so?

Anderson Paak was born to an African father and a Korean mother. Just like his wife, his mom, too, has Korean heritage. Life was not too easy for the rapper as a child. His father was arrested for attacking his mom when he was seven, and he never saw him again. Then, during high school, he was separated for many years from his mom after she was sent to jail for fraud.

Anderson Paak music career 

The rapper started music back in his teenage days from his bedroom, producing sounds. Then, he was a drummer at his family’s church for some time. During a rough patch in 2011, he lost his home after losing his job. At the time, he was married to Jae Lin, and they had already welcomed their son, Soul. So, they had to crash at friends’ and relatives’ places for some time.

He started getting famous in Los Angeles in the late 2011s while working on his first album. He credits rapper Dumbfoundead and Shafiq Husayn of the music group, Sa-Ra, for helping him get back on his feet financially. They paid him to assist with videography, editing, writing, and producing jobs.

He released O.B.E. Vol.1 in June 2012, which did not see much commercial success. Yet, it did put him on, and that was when he started going as Anderson .Paak, officially. Then, he began to make covers of songs from the 1950s written by white artists into soul, funk, jazz, left-field pop, hip-hop, and R&B and went on to record the Cover Art EP in November 2013. He produced rapper Watsky’s All You Can Do album in 2014.

Between 2014 and 2017, he worked with artists such as Dr. Dre, The Game, Jhene Aiko, Schoolboy Q, and 9th Wonder. Paak released his second album in 2016, titled Malibu. In 2018, his songs were featured in an Apple ad for its Homepod smart speaker, Forza Horizon 4, and Madden NFL 19 video games.

His third album, Oxnard, shot him to mainstream fame with Dr. Dre as producer and featured Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Pusha T, J. Cole, and Q-Tip. Then, he lined up André 3000, Smokey Robinson, Brandy, and Nate Dogg for his fourth studio album, Ventura.

Both Malibu and Ventura were nominated for Grammys in 2017 and 2020.

Likely, his biggest achievement was his work with Bruno Mars on the studio album An Evening with Silk Sonic, which is a product of the band they formed together, Silk Sonic. Its lead single, Leave the Door Open, topped the US Billboard Hot 100 for weeks and got four Grammy nominations, all of which it won.

Anderson Paak wife, Jae Lin net worth

With her husband having a complete turn around of fortune in less than four years after their worst time financially, it makes sense for people to be interested in Anderson Paak wife net worth.

However, we could not find a verifiable source mentioning just how much she is worth. Meanwhile, we have multiple sources claiming the the rapper was worth $4 million by the end of 2021. So, there you have it, Anderson Paak net worth, but not that of his wife.

Social media

It is equally curious that Jae Lin does not appear to have a social media account that we could see. Meanwhile, Anderson Paak is famous on social media, although, he is not very active. His Instagram account is @anderson._paak while he was on Twitter as @AndersonPaak, before deleting his account.


Granted, Jae Lin is not a celebrity and information on her is pretty thin when compiled. However, her marriage to Anderson Paak, while it makes her famous, is also a wholesome love story worth telling.

She has chosen to take the anonymous route and stay on the downlow, while her husband enjoys the fame. If we have learned anything from heavily publicized marriages, it is that those involved rarely get to do things without it ending up as a news. It must be refreshing for Anderson Paak wife, and his entire family, to be able to stay away from the limelight that success in the music industry brings.
