Once upon a time, Carole Marley used to jokingly say “yes” when asked if reggae superstar Bob Marley was her cousin. But it turns out that Ms. Marley — who lives in the UK — is indeed related to the rasta king!

The pair apparently share a common great-grandfather — Albert Thomas Marley — who immigrated to Jamaica in the late 19th century. Albert’s son related and mated with a young Afro-Jamaican woman and eventually young Bob was born.

As for Carole Marley, she’s stoked to learn of her famous lineage — though admits to only listening to Bob Marley once in her lifetime.
