Cheech Marin has previously been married twice.
His union with Rubin has been going strong for twelve years and is the longest union to date. The actor had been married twice before he began seeing her.
The actor married Rikki Marin for the first time on November 1st, 1975. Together, Cheech and Rikki gave birth to a son, and their connection went beyond marriage. She was an actress who made appearances in the 1980 films Cheech and Chong’s Next Movie and The Corsican Brothers (1984).
Cheech and Rikki got divorced in 1984, and he moved on to marry Patti Heid on April 1 of the same year. Although he had two children with Heid, their union did not fare as well as his first one. He was also accused of abusing Heid violently, but the court ultimately found him not guilty.
Cheech is accused of violent abuse by his ex-wife.
After she allegedly declined to finalize a property transfer arrangement they had previously agreed upon, Cheech allegedly yelled at her, prompting Heid to request a restraining order against him. She further alleged that before to the incident, he had hit her several times.
Heid, according to TMZ, said Cheech had aggressively choked her, fractured her cheek, blacked her eye, and left her with serious neck bruising and agony. Additionally, she sought the court for protection and stated that the comic had suffocated their son.
The judge rejected her request for protection after finding no evidence that Cheech had ever behaved in a menacing manner. Cheech spoke to TMZ about the outcome following the court proceeding.
