'Keep Sweet' Netflix: Where is FLDS Survivor Rebecca Wall Musser Now?

Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey is the new Netflix documentary everybody is talking about.

The four-art part series follows the rise and fall of Warren Jeffs, a self-professed prophet and the leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), a polygamous denomination of the Mormon Church (LDS).

Jeffs succeeded his father, Rulon Jeffs, as president of the FLDS and continued to preach men must practice the doctrine in order to attain the highest level of salvation from God in the afterlife. He was also the only person with the authority to conduct marriages and held the role of assigning wives to their husbands.

FLDS survivor Rebecca Wall Musser, who was once one of Rulon Jeff's 20 wives, speaks bravely about her experience and her escape from the cult in Netflix's documentary, Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey.

Newsweek has everything you need to know about FLDS survivor Rebecca Wall Musser today.

Where is FLDS Survivor Rebecca Wall Musser Now?

Today, FLDS survivor Rebecca Wall Musser is living a life away from the FLDS Church and the power of her former husband, Rulon Jeffs.

Musser, 46, is a mother of two, working as an activist and author. She published her first book about her experience with the FLDS, The Witness Wore Red: The 19th Wife Who Brought Polygamous Cult Leaders to Justice, in 2013.

She also founded the Claim Red Foundation in 2013, which sets out to educate people on recognizing and escaping abuse and oppression.

Audiences of Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey are introduced to Musser in the first episode of the four-part documentary.

In the episode, she recalls how she was forced into marrying Rulon Jeffs when she was just 19 years old by her father. Her parents had also been members of the FLDS. Her father, Lloyd Wall, had two wives: Musser's mother, Sharon Steed, and another woman named Myrna.

With Myrna, Lloyd had nine children and with Steed, he had 12.

At the time of their marriage, Rulon Jeffs was 85. Musser also spoke of abuse and non-consensual sexual contract during her marriage.

Musser also stated she was sexually abused by her older half-brother.

In September 2002, Jeffs died aged 92. It was at that time, that Musser decided to escape the FLDS Church with the help of Ben Musser, Rulon Jeff's grandson, after being told she had one week to choose a new husband.

Writing in Marie Claire, Musser noted how technically, Musser was her grandson as he was the grandson of Jeff and one of Musser's sister-wives.

In 2007, she first testified against Warren Jeffs, Rulon Jeffs' son, when he was convicted of rape as an accomplice for marrying her 14-year-old younger sister, Alyssa Wall, and her cousin.

In 2011, Warren Jeffs was found guilty of sexual assault of a child and aggravated sexual assault against a child, relating to the raid. His victims were a 15-year-old girl and a 12-year-old girl he had married. He was sentenced to life in prison.

At Warren Jeffs' trial, Musser was a key state witness, sharing her harrowing account of life at FLDS. She also helped the police and prosecutors analyze records and offer an insight into the FLDS culture when items were seized during the 2008 raid of the church's YFZ Ranch in Texas.

At the time of his arrest in 2011, 24 of his 78 wives were under the age of 17.
Taking to Instagram after the release of Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey on Netflix, Musser shared what it was like to watch the series with her 14-year-old daughter, Natalia, writing: "The reality of what her life could have been vs. what her life is now is one of the greatest gifts and accomplishments of my life."

Musser posted alongside an image of her and Natalia: "Watching @netflix Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey with my daughter, Natalia. It is hard to find words to describe what it is for us to watch the early stories of my family and life told on screen. Natalia is 14. She has never lived or known FLDS life. The reality of what her life could have been vs. what her life is now is one of the greatest gifts and accomplishments of my life."

Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey is streaming on Netflix now.
