Jacob’s father is Peter W. Busch, a descendant of Adolphus Busch, who founded the brewery in 1852. Today, Anheuser-Busch manufactures the beer brands Budweiser, Shock Top, Busch, Michelob, and Rolling Rock, among others. Jacob has a net worth of $100 million.

2. Jacob Was Introduced To Rebel By A Mutual Friend

The friend set them up in 2019 and they hit it off immediately, according to PEOPLE. They kept a long-distance romance alive, despite the fact that Rebel was quarantining during the pandemic in Australia while Jacob remained in Los Angeles. Things apparently started heating up once she returned to the United States.

3. Jacob Used To Date RHOBH Star Adrienne Maloof

Jacob dated Adrienne, who was 28 years his senior, from 2013 to 2015. He even appeared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills three times during season 5. Adrienne defended their age gap in 2013, when she was 52 and he was 24. “When you meet someone they don’t have a number on their forehead,” she told E! News. Our great grandfathers knew each other through the liquor industry. When we met we just hit it off. It felt so natural, so organic.”

4. Jacob Is An Animal Lover

Jacob’s Instagram feed is full of photos of cute animals, including his family’s elephant (they’re that rich), Budweiser, who died in March 2018. “Bud played a large part in the Busch family,” Jacob wrote on instagram. “He was our family. It will be hard to go back to Grants Farm knowing he won’t be there to greet us. Bud, over 34 years has been the best part of the farm. Unfortunately my children will not know Bud, but will see him in photographs.”
