Anderson .Paak has a whole new level of interesting childhood, as his parent's story in "You Don't Know The Half Of It" feels like a movie.

The multi-talented musical artist is a skilled drummer and a reputed Rapper who has bagged a Grammy award as well.

While the love for Anderson's songs has made fans all over the world, we are in for a surprise with the back story of his family members.

The series called "You Don't Know The Half Of It: The Family That Gave Us Anderson .Paak," explores his tumultuous childhood, growing up with his family.

Prepared by his neighbor and family friend from Ventura, Calif, ESPN reporter Dwayne Bray wrote a four-part series on his life before fame. Bray had published the series with pictures, interview summary, and videos in The Undefeated, which is currently called Andscape. 

Recently, a Tweet by Sarah McGonagall started a thread about Anderson's exciting life as she shared her experience reading through the whole story. Unexpectedly, it became sensational content on Twitter, and many people gave mixed responses to her evaluation.

Although the Tweet is already removed from her account, people responding to her post have made a lot of people interested in the Rapper's Family.

Anderson Paak Parents- Ronald Anderson And Brenda Mills Story

Brandon Paak Anderson was born to his parents, Ronald and Brenda, who did not have a harmonious relationship as a married couple.

As mentioned in the article by Bray, Paak's dad had an abusive relationship with his mom, and at one point, he almost choked her to death. Anderson grew up watching his father choke his mother almost every day until Ronald got arrested for almost crossing the line one day.

While his twin brother and Paak's uncle made headlines for covering his crimes and being willing to go to jail instead of him, Brandon's parents certainly went separate ways after that. 

Later, his mother got remarried, and his stepfather introduced him to drums, laying the path to his career in music.

Additionally, Anderson also has three sisters in the family, one of whom is younger than him while the other two are older by a few years gap. 

Where Is Anderson Paak Father Ronald Anderson Now? 

The father of Rapper Anderson .Paak, Ronald had faced a lot of trouble due to his abusive nature and attempted murder of his wife.

However, in 2011, Ronald Anderson had died, leaving behind his twin brother and a mysterious story of his life.

It was stated in the story that Dwayne had covered an article on the Ventura County Jail inmate without having the recollection that it was about his own neighbor.

Ronald's twin brother Donald was quite popular for being the loyal brother taking the blame for his father's attempted murder case. Thus, it seems that one among the two was certainly arrested and detained in prison at that time. 

The two brothers were identical, and not even their close family and friends could tell them apart. Because of this, they had a much more adventurous lifestyle, swapping places with each other on many occasions. They even switched positions for Korean Army deployment, and no one had ever found out about them. 

While Ronald has already passed away, his twin brother might still be living his older days with his family in Ventura. 

Where Is Anderson Paak Mother Brenda Mills Today? 

Brenda Mills, Anderson's mother, also had an eventful life, with her three marriages and experiences gained through each of them. Currently, she lives close to her son and participates in his every big program and event.  

Paak's mom had almost died at the hands of his father, which let us move on with her kids, and got married to her second husband and Anderson's stepfather, Dennis Willingham. 

Dennis was a gospel singer whose life was surrounded by musicians, and he was also the one who let Anderson find his skill in drumming. They were quite close, and he had learned quite a lot about music from his stepfather. 

Later on, his mother and stepfather started a Strawberry business and developed it into a successful estate. They had a fulfilling lifestyle for quite some time, and she even married her daughters while growing her empire even more. Paak's family was counted among the top rich Black families and had quite a reputation.

However, things went bad when his mother started making expenses much more than the earnings and had used investors' funds for personal uses. It all blew up one day, and they became homeless after some time.  

Anderson .Paak Family Story Making Waves On Internet

With the release of "You Don't Know The Half Of It: The Family That Gave Us Anderson .Paak" in 2017, Paak's story became much more famous over time.
