In a show of support and admiration for their mother, Rita Marley, Ziggy, Sharon, and Cedella Marley have rallied behind her following a controversial tribute to Bob Marley by Cindy Breakspeare, the mother of Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley.

Ziggy Marley took to Instagram to honor his mother, describing her as “Bob’s ride or die wife” and “an African Queen,” highlighting her unwavering support and courage throughout their lives. Sharon Marley echoed her brother’s sentiments, declaring Rita as the “Real Queen.”

The tribute from Breakspeare drew criticism for its reflection on her relationship with Bob Marley while Rita Marley is still alive. Some fans also pointed out Rita’s steadfast commitment to their marriage, even enduring a gunshot wound during an assassination attempt on Bob’s life in 1976.

Despite Ziggy’s busy schedule promoting the Bob Marley: One Love biopic, he found time to express his deep appreciation for his mother’s sacrifices and strength.

Fans rallied behind the Marley siblings’ defense of their mother, praising Rita Marley as the true queen and applauding their loyalty.

Rita and Bob Marley’s relationship, which began in 1966, was characterized by love and devotion amidst the challenges of fame and infidelity. Rita played a pivotal role not only as a wife but also as a member of Bob’s backing group, the I-Threes.

Breakspeare’s tribute sparked renewed interest in the complex dynamics of Bob Marley’s personal life, including his relationships with both Rita and Breakspeare.

Despite the controversies surrounding his personal life, Rita Marley has worked tirelessly to preserve and expand Bob Marley’s legacy, turning his estate into a multi-million dollar operation that includes a museum, recording studio, and various merchandise.

As the Marley family continues to honor Bob Marley’s memory, Rita Marley stands as a testament to resilience, strength, and unwavering devotion.
