It becomes impossible for you to escape the limelight of media once you get married to a celebrity. The former editor, Maxine Sneed started making to the headlines after her marriage with actor Tommy Chong. Her exposure further increased after she and ex-husband battled legal custody for the parental right of Rae with Gail, who had an extra-marital affair with Tommy.
Divorce After Decade-Old Marriage; Raises Two Children
Maxine Sneed tied the nuptials with a well-reckoned Canadian- American actor Tommy Chong in 1960. The former partner welcomed a daughter named Robbi Chong in 1965. After staying together for a decade, Maxine and ex-husband parted ways in 1970. Although Maxine and Tommy are yet to clarify on their divorce, the reason behind their separation is reportedly told to be infidelities issues. Tommy went to get married to Shelby Chong in 1975.
Before their daughter Robbie Chong was born, Tommy reportedly had an extramarital affair with an underage lady named Gail Toulson. His relationship with Gail yielded a daughter named Rae Dawn. Maxine and Tommy won the custody of Rae, but their child did not know her exact biological mother until she turned 12 years old.
Keeping all the family problems and controversies aside, her daughter, Rae has always credited her parents for the beautiful upbringing she and her sister has received. The two siblings have been part of many public events and movie premiers and were the attendees of the movie premiere of the family drama; Only God Can in 2015.

After her separation news with writer Tommy Chong, Maxine is yet to be in a dating relationship again.
However, Maxine's daughter Rae has already found a man. From a look into Rae's Instagram, it can be vividly seen that she is in a relationship with a man named Mitchelle Long who is a musician. Rae's post on her social media shows just how much in love the pair are. On the 11th of February 2019, she posted a picture of her alongside her man and gushed in the caption that her boyfriend loves to travel and make noise.
But as for her relationship with Mitchelle, it is unconfirmed whether the two are married or are just in a relationship. There are no pictures of any wedding, so it would be fair to assume that the two share a relationship without the marriage part. If they have any plans of getting married anytime soon is something only the happy couple have the answer to. And until then, we can just appreciate just how cute they look together.
