Married and parents at a tender age, both Maxine and Edward moved to Los Angeles and started working in a garment factory.

Maxine reportedly split ways with Edward in 1972, and a few years later, she was elected to the California state assembly.

The former linebacker ventured into business and politics after his short NFL career. Sidney worked as a legislative aid and was the U.S ambassador to the Bahamas under president Clinton from 1994-1998.
The couple reportedly lives in a $4.8 million home in LA, a figure that startled many. Fox News host Tucker Carlson had, in fact, confronted Waters, asking how a congresswoman could afford a multi-million property, a question which Maxine later said was racist.
Waters told New York Magazine, “He doesn’t know anything about my investments, about the house that I’ve lived in for 25, 30 years. This idea of ‘how could she afford that?’ is racist, and I just dismiss it.”
