Sage Robbins – Tony Robbins Wife, How Did They Meet?
Sage Robbins is a very happily married woman. The actress got married to Tony Robbins, an American philanthropist, motivational speaker, entrepreneur and author on the 15th of October, 2001 in Fiji, a nation in Oceania. Sage and Tony met when she attended a seminar organized by the motivational speaker in Hawaii, USA. The couple explained that when they set eyes on each other, they instantly knew they were meant for each other. They began to date soon after and got married in 2001.
Sage’s marriage to Tony was highly discussed in public circles because of the controversial circumstances behind their meeting. Before meeting and marrying Tony Robbins, Sage was married to her first husband named John Lynch. She was just about 19 years old in 1992 when she married John who was 30 years old at the time. However, their marriage crashed and they divorced in 2000.
The divorce was messy because John accused Tony Robbins of snatching Sage from him. He claimed to have seen Tony kissing his wife Sage in a photograph splashed on the pages of a tabloid newspaper. He proceeded to sue Tony for what he called ‘alienation of affection’.
This accusation by John made various headlines in America and beyond because Tony Robbins was already an established public personality, being a motivational speaker and life coach. However, Sage defended Tony insisting that she and John had already been separated since 1998, almost a year before she met Tony in September 1999, during one of his seminars in Hawaii. This notwithstanding, Americans became very interested in the ‘scandalous’ allegations and many people began to dig into the life of Sage to know where she was from and what brought her together with Tony Robbins.
To make the scandalous story even more complicated, Tony Robbins was also married to a woman named Becky Robbins before he met Sage. He later divorced her in 2001, the same year he married Sage. It has been many years since Tony and Sage got married but they are still bonding very well, showering praise on each other and displaying public affection for themselves. These days, Sage is seen almost everywhere Tony goes especially during his many seminars.
