Who is Jacob Busch, Rebel Wilson’s Billionaire Boyfriend?
Rebel Wilson and her billionaire boyfriend, Jacob Busch, are very much in love. The pair has been dating since 2019, just before Wilson’s year of health, and Busch has reportedly been enamored with her ever since.
“I’m a lucky guy,” Busch wrote under a photo of him and Rebel together back in October.
Sources close to their relationship seem to agree, describing how Busch fell hard and fast for the comedian and actress.
“Jacob adored Rebel last year before she went on her health journey,” an insider told Us. “He is very old school and he is a gentleman in the way he treats Rebel. He seems to be very in love with her.”
Though Busch has not been in the Hollywood limelight in the same way Wilson has, being her boyfriend is far from his only claim to fame. His billionaire status comes from the Anheuser-Busch brewery, which is owned by the young entrepreneur’s family and the producer of famous beers such as Budweiser and Stella Artois. Following in his family’s footsteps, Busch also started his own brewing company, Son’s Beer, and later started his own dairy-free ice cream company, Napps Ice Cream.
Busch is also known for putting his wealth and skills towards good causes. He acts as the West Coast Ambassador of the Busch Family Foundation, a charitable organization that funds nonprofits including The Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, One Hundred Club, United Against Poverty, and The Boys & Girls Club. Outside of his familial work, back in 2018 he celebrated six years of philanthropy work with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where he donated “thousands of presents to deserving kids” each Christmas.
Even with his work in both business and philanthropy, however, Busch still finds plenty of time for loved ones. Back in 2013, he started a brief romance with Real Housewife of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof, who was nearly 30 years his senior. At the time, insiders praised Busch for being a total gentleman and sweetheart, and Maloof defended their relationship against critics of their age gap. The two even almost got married back in 2014. Their relationship ended in 2015, however, and the couple was never made Instagram official – instead, the billionaire’s feed is filled with his animal companions.
“Napoleon contemplating conquering @oxbowpublicmarket,” Busch captioned a photo of his furry friend.
Busch’s dog has been his companion for years now – Napoleon’s debut on his social media was all the way back in 2013.
Another longtime animal friend of Busch’s was his family’s elephant, Bud, who sadly died in April of 2018.
Besides Bud and Napoleon, Busch’s Instagram flaunts photos of him befriending alligators, camels, wildcats, kangaroos, and more, many (but not all) of them inhabitants of his family wildlife sanctuary.
Though Wilson and Busch have been fairly private about their relationship, Busch’s background shows that the two stars have a lot to bond over – they’re both dedicated to their careers, charity, and, of course, their mutual love for their animal friends.
