Shaggy and Rebecca have tied the knot!
International reggae superstar Shaggy is said to have gotten married over the summer, on Saturday (July 12), to his long-term partner Rebecca Packer.
The wedding reportedly took place at Goldeneye in Oracabessa, Jamaica.
Rebecca is an art director of films and videos. She is also the co-producer of the Shaggy and Friends charity concert.
In an recent interview, Shaggy said that Rebecca keeps him excited specially with her very opinionated personality.
“She challenges me in many ways,” Shaggy said. “She is very opinionated. Very opinionated. We have had our fair share of arguments, but I think the best way to put it is that we are two stones and the edges are rough and they beat on each other until eventually they are smooth. That’s the best way I can say it. She constantly impresses me as we go along and that keeps my interest there. And our love is the basic thing that keeps us together; and I don’t think I have ever fallen out of love with her.”
He explained that being away from her so often also helps, as when he finally gets back to her it’s like falling in love all over again.
“We just have certain values that click,” he added.
Shaggy and his wife helped to raise J$70 million for the Bustamante Children’s Hospital in Kingston, this year.
Shaggy’s Hot Shot album sold over 10 million copies. He is Jamaica’s only living Diamond plus selling reggae artiste.
