Get around the pointers explaining her selfhood, why she has, to all appearances, decided to lay low, what she is doing these days, regardless, and thusly wikis.

Rebecca, who is now 48 years old, grew up with her younger brother, Joshua. She went to the Village Christian School in California and graduated in 1992. The brunette earned her bachelor’s degree in secondary education and later took up teaching as a profession.

What Does Rebecca Soteros Do?

Owing to Rebecca’s ever-so-off-the-record life, journals narrowly have an answer to what Walker’s former partner has been doing all these years.

Old logs and pieces, however, show she used to work as a primary school teacher and presumably is working as one to this day.

Where Does Rebecca Soteros Live Now?

She is reported to be residing mostly in Honolulu, Hawaii, Kalakaua Ave.

Rebecca And Late Boyfriend Paul Walker’s Relationship

The Brick Mansions actor, Paul, and Rebecca had a short-lived relationship. They met several years before the former shot to fame in 2001’s The Fast And The Furious.

Soteros and Paul had started their relationship when the Glendale native was still relatively unknown after the two met in California in early 1998. It’s unclear what caused the couple to split up, or when their relationship ended, but they, nonetheless never married.

Some say they parted sometime in late 1999 because of Paul and Rebecca’s countless arguments for years over the latter’s drinking problems. On the other hand, some claim, that Walker refused to marry Rebecca at the time because he thought he was not mature enough.

Later it was reported that he felt guilty about it. In Dec 2013, the Joy Ride himself admitted to not being a husband material enough to marry Rebecca and even confessed to not being faithful to her.

‘I knew where I was at with chicks and having fun. I mean, I was sleeping with her (Rebecca’s) friends, for crying out loud. You know what I mean? I was an animal, and so I want to be there and my heart wants to be in it, but the mind just isn’t following it.

said the late Californian whilst talking to WENN.

After their break-up, Paul reportedly started dating Jasmine Gosnell. It has been said that Paul and Gosnell first started dating when she was just 16 years old.

Soteros And Walker’s Daughter, Meadow Walker

When together, Paul and Rebecca Soteros, however, went on to have a daughter, Meadow Rain Walker on November 4, 1998. They had her less than a year after starting a relationship.

Meadow, up until she was a pre-teen, lived with her mother in Hawaii. Rebecca and Paul’s only child, Meadow returned to California in 2011 to live with her dad.

Rebecca would also come to California but by that time, her ex-boyfriend had died in a car crash.

Her and The Takers actor’s daughter, Meadow is now an upcoming model who is married to the Excoriated actor Louis Thornton-Allan. Although Paul’s former partner maintains a low profile and stays away from the glare of publicity, she reportedly continues to be close to Meadow.

Meadow was 15 years old when her father Paul lost his life in a fatal car crash. She, however, was living with Paul for the past three years after leaving her home in Hawaii where her mother, Rebecca raised her.

Rebecca Didn’t Inherit a Thing From Paul Walker; The Late Actor Left All His Net Worth to His Daughter

Since the late actor, Paul Walker named his only child, Meadow as the sole beneficiary of his entire estate in his will, it is likely that Rebecca didn’t receive any money from her former partner.

Not to mention, Soteros also had long parted ways from the Eight Below actor before he died in Nov 2013.

As per sources, Meadow inherited Paul’s entire fortune. It was originally thought to be $25 million, but according to TMZ, it was actually worth a total of $16 million.

Paul Walker’s Mother Fought For The Custody Of Meadow Against Rebecca Soteros 

In the past, Rebecca and Paul’s mother, Cheryl had a bit of a rift over who should handle the late actor’s money and his daughter, Rebecca. This was sometime after Paul’s death, back in the summer of 2014.

According to the Jan. 6th, 2014 print edition of Star magazine Paul’s parents at the time argued they should be in charge of both because they know how their son would want them to proceed.

In 2014, a source told E! that Meadow and Soteros hadn’t anticipated Cheryl going to court.

The source said while there had been discussions, no one told [Meadow and Soteros] they were going ahead with it. Rebecca and her daughter first heard about it when they saw it on TMZ. They both initially found Cheryl seeking guardianship very disgusting.

Whilst calling for Meadow’s guardianship, Paul’s mother cited Soteros’ two DUIs as an explanation. Rebecca, on the other hand, said she should have a say in how her daughter’s father’s assets are divided. A source then said Rebecca was also ready to never let anyone else care for her daughter.

Soteros and her daughter, Meadow, at the time, were living in Cali in a home that Walker had purchased for them. Paul’s parents have always had an advantage over their actor son’s estate since Rebecca never married Walker.

Add to that, Paul in his will had stated his mother should take on the role of guardian to Meadow. So Cheryl’s court filing was in line with his wishes. They further said that Rebecca shouldn’t be then-teenager Meadow’s legal guardian.

Cheryl filed court documents seeking guardianship of then-15-year-old Meadow Rain Walker. Paul Walker’s mother allegedly claimed the mother of his teenage daughter, Meadow at the time was having a drinking problem. Meadow at the time had moved to California to live near her father, Paul.

TMZ later confirmed Cheryl eventually agreed to drop her case if Soteros completed a rehabilitation program. Paul’s former partner, Rebecca agreed, and Meadow went on to live with her mother later on.

Rebecca’s Two Cases Of DUI 

Paul’s former partner, Rebecca in the past went to custody twice for driving under the influence (DUI) in 2003 and 2013. Soteros pleaded guilty to driving under the influence following an arrest on Oct. 18, 2003, in Newport Beach, Calif.

Following that, she had to attend 3 years of probation. The 2013 incident of Soteros’ DUI took place in Hawaii, according to public records. Fortunately, neither of the accidents included minors.

Is Rebecca Soteros On Social Media?  

Soteros’ daughter, Meadow posts on Instagram every once in a while. Though Rebecca all in all has remained away from the focus of interest as well as social media. In fact, ever since the 2014 custody battle, Soteros has just as grown into a nobody.

Although there are some pictures of hers on stands like Instagram, Facebook, and others, whether she, herself is in play on such hangouts is unclear.

Interestingly, even Meadow doesn’t seem to bother giving her mother, Rebecca some mention outs. This evidently is quite contrasting to the instances where she never misses remembering her late actor father.
