Who is London King?

London was born in Wellston, Ohio USA, on 27 September 1971 – her zodiac sign is Libra, and she holds American nationality. She’s a former model, former actress and doula, with only three acting credits to her name, so she’s perhaps still known best for her portrayal of Cheryl in the 2000 action crime comedy movie “A Better Way to Die”, written and directed by Scott Wiper, who also starred in it, alongside Jack Conley and Carmen Argenziano. It follows a police officer from Chicago who’s quit his job and is now being threatened by the Mafia; this was London’s debut role.

She’s also known for having been the first wife of Robert Michael ‘Rob’ Schneider, a popular American actor and comedian.

Early life and education

London was raised in Wellston alongside her brother William Scott King, who’s today an entrepreneur, by their father David King who was a businessman, and their mother Paula King who worked as a pharmacist.

She grew up being interested in a number of activities, and was physically highly active during her teenage years; London played several sports at her high school, believing that this would help shape her figure, and prepare her for when it was time to launch her modelling career. She was also into acting, and could’ve been seen appearing in a couple of school plays.

London matriculated in 1990, and although she hasn’t spoken of her further education, it’s widely believed that she studied at a prestigious college, from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 1994.

London’s career

London began working as a model upon graduation, and appeared in various commercials in the following six years, although which brands and companies she worked with aren’t identified.

The year 2001 saw her play Jade in the comedy “Raw Fish”, written and directed by Ashoka Thomas and Greg James, and which starred Brooke Butterfield, Marjorie Campbell and Robert Flanagan; the film failed to attract any attention.

London’s only other role was her portrayal of Ruby Jenkins in the 2002 biographical drama “The Calling”, written and directed by Damian Chapa, who also starred in it alongside Robert Wagner and Faye Dunaway; it follows the life of controversial evangelist Leroy Jenkins.

What is she doing today?

London’s today working in the healthcare industry, and is a health instructor, and a doula, a labor assistant who physically and emotionally supports couples during and after pregnancy.

She’s also running her own healthcare agency Push Love.

Love life and marriage with Rob Schneider

London gave birth to her first child Noah King in August 1986, when she was only 14 years old – and the boy’s father wasn’t around while he was growing up. Noah’s today working as a barrel inspector at Speyside Bourbon Cooperage, and he holds a degree from the Institute of American Indian Arts.

London and Rob married on 25 September 1988, in a private ceremony attended by only the closest of their friends and family members; although neither has spoken about how and when they met, it’s believed that they knew each other for less than a year prior to exchanging vows. It’s also interesting to note that London was still two days away from turning 17 at the time of the wedding, and that Rob was 24.

A year later, on 3 July 1989, London gave birth to their daughter Tanner Elle Schneider, who’s today a successful singer-songwriter and actress, known better as Elle King. London and Rob divorced on 1 September 1990 for undisclosed reasons, and London went on to marry her second husband Justin Tesa on 21 January 2000.

Rob’s also moved on, and married his second wife Helena Schneider in 2002; they are childless, and their divorce was finalized in 2005. He exchanged vows with his third wife, Patricia Azarcoya Arce on 23 April 2011, and she gave birth to their first daughter Miranda Scarlett Schneide in 2012; their second daughter Madeline Robbie Schneider followed in September 2016.

As of July 2022, London’s married to her second husband Justin Tesa, and has a son with her former boyfriend, as well as a daughter with her first husband Rob Schneider.

London’s quite active on social media networks, and is today followed by close to 10,000 people on Instagram, while she’s uploaded over 1,500 pictures onto the network, the majority of which feature her during her everyday life.

Summer seems to be her favorite season, as many of her Instagram pictures feature her sun tanning at the beach and swimming in the ocean.

Who is London’s former husband Rob?

Rob was born in San Francisco, California USA, on 31 October 1963 – his zodiac sign is Scorpio, and he holds American nationality. He’s appeared in close to 100 movies and TV series, while he’s perhaps still known best for his portrayal of the lead character in the 1999 romantic comedy movie “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo”. It was directed by Mike Mitchell, also starred William Forsythe and Eddie Griffin, and follows an aquarium cleaner who’s pretending to be a gigolo; the movie was nominated for two awards.

Rob was raised in Pacifica, San Mateo County, California alongside his older brother John, by their father Marvin Schneider who was a real estate broker, and their mother Pilar (nee Monroe) who was a kindergarten teacher. It was while attending Terra Nova High School that Rob became interested in comedy, appearing in many plays performed at the school, however, he was urged by his parents to pursue a college degree. Upon matriculating in 1982, he enrolled at San Francisco State University, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in 1986.
