Early Life and Career Beginnings
Becky G was originally given the name Rebbeca Marie Gomez when she was born in Inglewood, California, in 1997. She is Mexican American and has two older brothers and a younger sister thanks to her parents, Alejandra and Francisco. At the age of nine, while Gomez’s family was having financial troubles, they were forced to sell the family house. Gomez started working other gigs, such as voiceovers and advertisements, to make ends meet. After experiencing difficulties in public school due to bullying, she decided to switch to homeschooling.
Gomez has roles in two films released in 2008: the short “El Tux” and the television movie “La estación de la Calle Olvera,” both of which aired on the Discovery Channel. The next year, she joined the female group G.L.A.M. and recorded a music video, fulfilling her lifelong desire of becoming a singer. Gomez began recording herself singing and rapping about this time, and she began uploading the resulting videos to YouTube. She also picked up guitar and started penning her own tunes. Gomez subsequently became friends with the producing group The Jam, with whom she collaborated on several projects, including cover versions of the songs “Novacane,” “Boyfriend,” and “Otis.”
Gomez made her debut in a major motion picture in 2017 as Trini Kwan, the Yellow Ranger, in a live-action remake of “Power Rangers.” The character was groundbreaking as the first openly gay superhero in a major motion picture. Gomez then had leading roles in the science fiction adventure film “A.X.L.” and the animated fantasy picture “Gnome Alone,” both of which also featured Josh Peck.
As an actress, Gomez has portrayed herself on TV shows like “Teens Wanna Know,” “Tu da alegre,” and “Austin & Ally.” She had a two-episode arc as Valentine Galindo on the Fox musical drama series “Empire” in 2015.
2016 marked the beginning of Gomez’s relationship with Sebastian Lletget, a professional soccer player.
Gomez took to her Snapchat account in 2017 to describe the incident, during which she stated that she deals with anxiety. The incident occurred in Mexico City and involved an attack by a fan.
