miss world 1976

Cynthia Jean Cameron Breakspeare, better known as Cindy Breakspeare, is a Jamaican jazz musician and former model. She was crowned Miss World 1976, and is the mother of Grammy-winning reggae musician Damian Marley. Breakspeare was born in Toronto, Canada, to a Jamaican father and a Canadian mother. She moved to Jamaica when she was four years old, and as a teenager she began participating in beauty pageants, including Miss Jamaica Body Beautiful and Miss Universe Bikini. She was invited to participate in the Miss World competition in 1976; she traveled to London and won the title, only the second Jamaican woman ever to do so. Her relationship with musician Bob Marley produced her son, Damian Marley, who was born in 1978. Marley wrote the song "Turn Your Lights Down Low" about his relationship with her. She married senator and attorney-at-law Tom Tavares-Finson in 1981 with whom she has son Christian (1982) and daughter Leah (1986). Breakspeare and Tavares-Finson later divorced in 1995. Christian attends law school in the UK, while Leah attends university in Canada. Breakspeare is now married to Rupert Bent II, a pilot and guitarist for Byron Lee & the Dragonaires.
