The Truth About Jesse Lees’ Story

Despite Robert’s numerous financial challenges, Maureen was willing to walk down the aisle with him and in fact assisted him because she was at that time a practicing professional nurse. Maureen also helped Robert secure a job in her father’s steel company before he was able to get a foothold in the entertainment industry and become the celebrity he is today.
Jesse’s father and Maureen had 3 children together namely; Carmen Jane Plant, Karac Pendragon plant (who died in 1972 as a result of a stomach virus.), and Logan Romero Plant.
About 15 years later, Maureen and Robert decided to go separate ways because of several issues that were affecting their marriage. These issues were connected to infidelity, perceived negligence, and the death of Karac Pendragon Plant who was at that time the couple’s last child.
