Despite the fact that the heroes of our selection grew up in incomplete and some of them in poor families, they managed to become popular all over the world and win the love of millions. Thanks to their efforts, their desire for a better life, they proved that the environment cannot influence fate.

OBOZREVATEL presents to your attention celebrities who did not know their fathers and were raised by other relatives. Many of them lost their fathers at a young age (to see the photos, scroll to the bottom of the page).

Marilyn Monroe

The actress was the third child of film editor Gladys Pearl Baker. When Gladys turned fifteen, she married John Newton Baker, who was nine years older than her. The couple had two children, Robert (1917-1933) and Bernice (1919-2014). In 1924, the celebrity's mother married Martin Edward Mortensen for the second time, but before she became pregnant with Norma Jean (Marilyn Monroe's real name), they divorced. The identity of the girl's father is still unknown. Mortensen is listed as the father on the birth certificate, although when Gladys baptized her daughter, she registered her under the surname Baker.

Steve Jobs

American inventor Steve Jobs was born on February 24, 1955. His parents were Abdulfattah Jandali, a native of Syria, and Joan Shibley. Since the mother's relatives objected to her relationship with her lover, and she had to go to a private doctor in San Francisco to give birth, she decided to give the child up for adoption. Steve was adopted by Paul Jobs and Clara Jobs, an American of Armenian descent. The couple could not have children of their own. It is said that the celebrity never met his real father.

LeBron James

The American basketball player was born by 16-year-old schoolgirl Gloria James. She divorced the celebrity's father, Anthony McClelland, before the birth of her son. With the baby in her arms, the girl managed to finish school. From the age of six to twelve, LeBron moved with his mother from one place to another, as the family could not afford to pay for housing. He grew up in poor neighborhoods with a high crime rate, where murders and shootings were a regular occurrence.
