Dwayne Johnson is one of the most famous members of the Samoan Anoa’i wrestling dynasty. The massive family includes the likes of The Wild Samoans, Rikishi, Yokozuna, and the most dominant force in WWE today, The Bloodline.
Johnson himself is the son of former WWE Tag Team Champion Rocky Johnson and the Grandson of WWE Hall of Famer High Chief Peter Maivia. As well as The Rock, Rocky Johnson had two children – Curtis and Una – to his first wife, Una Sparks. However, a new investigation has found that Johnson fathered five other children outside of his marriages to Sparks and The Rock’s mother, Ata Maivia.
Dwayne Johnson’s previously unknown half-siblings
According to a recent report by Sports Illustrated, Rocky Johnson was the father of five kids who were complete strangers to each other and their famous step-brother. DNA testing has shown that Adrian Bowles, Trevor Edwards, Aaron Fowler, Paula Parsons, and Lisa Purves are all part of The Great One’s family.
One of the siblings had contact with his father, with Adrian having been called by Rocky later in life. He explained that the two had a “good conversation” but feels it was a little late.
Paula, the eldest of the five, explained that she too was called by Rocky, but despite his promises, the pair necer met.
Meanwhile, Lisa, a filmmaker, attempted to get in touch but Johnson hung up on her when she called her. This led to decades of what she describes as “embarrassment” that her father seemingly didn’t want her.
Trevor knew about his parentage from a young age and, wanting to get in touch with his father, contacted his uncle, Ricky Johnson, who suggested a DNA test which matched the pair as being related. Ricky immediately welcomed him into the family.
Aaron, now an agricultural worker, found out who his real father was at the age of 15, but didn’t pursue it until 2020 when he took a DNA test through ancestry.com which matched him to both Lisa and Adrian.
Despite their connection to Dwayne Johnson, the five insist that The Rock doesn’t owe them anything and is not responsible for the decisions his father made.
