Rima Melati Sheila Adams born in Hong Kong, July 1, 1980, is a Singaporean model, actress, singer and TV personality. Most recently, she is a handbag designer.
Early and personal lifeEdit
Rima Adams was born to an Australian-Thailand father, Ronald Adams and a Singapore-Malay mother, Satifah Ali. She was a Miss Singapore Universe 2001 finalist.
Adams was first married to Davin James Cook, with whom she had a son, Edga Ian Cook.
Her second marriage is to Marcell Siahaan and from this she had a son named Seth Ananda Siahaan. This marriage was criticised by the Malay-Muslim community in Singapore and Malaysia as it did not abide by the Shari’aah law because of the couple’s non-conforming decision to have a civil wedding. Shortly after their wedding, she left the Singapore entertainment industry and moved to Jakarta to be with Marcell and did not work for one year.
Modeling and actingEdit
Starting at the age of 16, Adams modeled for Diva Models from 1996 to 2002. She then joined Supermodel of the World in Singapore in 1998 and won the ‘Best Catwalk’ award. She began her acting career at MediaCorp Suria in Singapore. In 2003, Adams starred in a highly rated Suria series “E.C.” . She subsequently starred in several telemovies in Malaysia.
Desiring to leave the entertainment field and better position herself for the lifestyle she desired for motherhood, Adams launched a line of limited quantity, handmade bags, RIMAADAMSONLINE, which are made in Indonesia.
