Shirley Wilson and Robert Plant have separated.
Shirley Wilson was engaged to Robert Plant. They started dating in 1969. They got engaged in 1983. After 22 years together they split up in 1991. They had 1 child, Jesse Lee, their son, is 24 years old.
So if RP had children from two sisters are the children cousins and brothers and sister.....just a thought....Just my opinion if my sister ever did that to me with my ex I would be pretty dam upset! You NEVER cross your own sister
Who are we to judge?He didnt get together with Shirley for 7 years after his marriage.Robert once said regarding an under-rehearsed Zep reunion gig was like sleeping next to your ex-wife without making love. Clearly he carried a torch for Maureen for years, maybe still, and being with her sister helped sooth that longing. Not sayin' it was right, but we shouldnt judge, they were both willing and Jesse was the result.There were already two beautiul (three actually) from that gene-pool, and now there are four.Leave it alone.
She was married also to John Bryant of little acre band
If he loved her so much then why didnt he purpose?He did years later to Tori Amos and God knows who else!He went out with lots of girls i nthe 80s not just her.And she clearly isnt a beautiful person-inside or not-how could she do that to her own sister?It must have broke Maureens heart a 1000 times.Shame on her.And hes never said who the mother of his third son is-he must be ashamed of himself too.
If she was the love of his life,then why did he stay with Maureen for nearly 20 years and have 3 children with her?They went through A LOT together including losing a child -he could have left at any time but HE chose not to.And he wrote tonnes of songs about Maureen inc Thank You-one of the most romantic songs ever written.Him and Maureen remain close to this day-its her who is his soulmate.
Thanks for all this info!
Shirley was most definitely the big love of Robert`s life, but I`m so curious as to why they broke up right after Jesse was born. Robert pined for her since the 60`s. It just seems unfortunate. But as long as they`re both happy, that`s all that matters.
Amy comments are correct. I am friends with Maureen`s family. They are a lovely and very private family.
Amy that is very interesting info! Would love to hear more about that, if you have any more details. I always found that love triangle to be very interesting, but I had no idea they were together after he and Maureen divorced, much less had a child. Please post more info if you have it or send me a PM. Cheers!
Shirley Wilson was Maureen`s younger sister, of whom many famous LZ songs were written: Rain Song, What Is and What Should Never Be, Ten Years Gone. After Robert and Maureen divorced in 1983, he and Shirley lived together until about 1990. She is the mother of Robert`s child Jesse, born in 1990. Shirley is a beautiful, wonderful woman of whom I`ve met a few times.
