Rumors flew that Maxine is not the birth mother of Rae Dawn Chong. The media stated Tommy Chong was secretly in an affair with a 17-year-old girl. The girl is Gail Toulson, and she claimed that Rae Dawn is her and Tommy’s daughter.
Gail Toulson gave birth to Tommy Chong’s first daughter. Later Tommy battled Gail in court for the custody of Rae Dawn stating Maxine as the birth mother of Rae. Tommy won the custody of the daughter and raised with him.
Gail Toulson lost the custody battle because she was underage and could not support a better future for her daughter.

Even her information on parents is a mystery. Her age is a mystery as we do not know the year she was born. Based on our calculations, Maxine Sneed is about 70-75 years of age.
After the divorce with Tommy, Maxine hasn’t featured in the media. She entirely cut off from celebrity lifestyle and managed to live a normal day-to-day life.
