Marika Rivera (November 13, 1919 – January 14, 2010)[1] was a French film actress and dancer.[2]

She was born in Paris, the non-marital daughter of the Mexican artist Diego Rivera and his mistress, the Russian-born painter Marie Vorobieff-Stebelska ("Marevna").[3] Rivera, who was married to Angelina Beloff, did not accept his daughter. So she grew up under the care of her mother, who later had an affair with the artist Chaim Soutine. Marika Rivera participated in dancing and acting classes. In 1938 she married the painter Jean Paul Brusset, and gave birth to their son Jean Brusset. Later she married Rodney Philipps, who was the owner of the Athelhampton House, Dorset, from 1949 to 1957. In Dorset she bore her second son David Philipps in 1949. Since her second divorce she had lived in Ealing in Greater London, England. She died on January 14, 2010.
