Who is Georges LeBar?
Georges LeBar was born in Australia on 24 January 1973 – his zodiac sign is Aquarius and he holds Australian nationality. He’s a painter, writer and a poet, but who’s probably known best for being the husband of RuPaul, an American drag queen, model, actor, singer-songwriter, and a TV personality.
Early life and education
Georges was raised in Australia by his parents about whom nothing is known as he respects their privacy. He hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, and is thus believed to be an only child.
Georges attended a local high school at which he became interested in various activities including playing soccer, acting in school plays and dancing.
It was during his high school years that he realized that he was attracted to men. In 1991, Georges matriculated as one of the best students of his class. He hasn’t spoken of his further education, but it’s widely believed that he enrolled at a college from which he obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1995.
Georges has been staying away from the media’s attention and not a lot is known about his career. He began working as a painter shortly upon graduation, and in 2007 released an oil canvas collection he calls “Six Inches Away”. His second collection – “Pillow Talk” – was released later that year.
Today, Georges is the owner of a 60,000 acre ranch in Wyoming, where he spends most of his time, but travels back home to Australia at least once a year.
Love life and marriage with RuPaul
On 24 January 1994 on his 21st birthday, Georges met RuPaul at the New York City’s Limelight nightclub, and they began dating not long after that. They kept the relationship a secret for a while, but in January 2017 after around 23 years of dating, the two finally married in a private ceremony attended by only a couple of their closest friends and family members. They have been leading a seemingly happy life together since, and there are rumors circulating the internet claiming that they are planning to adopt a child, however, this hasn’t been confirmed, and seems unlikely at their age.
RuPaul has stated that he and Georges were in an open relationship, and that they are today in an open marriage, as he ‘wouldn’t want to ‘put restraints’ on the man he loves’.
Neither of the two has spoken of any other men whom they have perhaps been with, but have apparently both been with several since they began dating.
Hobbies and other interests
Georges loves to travel, and has been all around the world for both work and pleasure, while his dream travel destination is Miami in Florida. He today spends most of his time in the US, and divides the rest between Europe and Australia. Georges also enjoys tasting various cuisines, and his favorite is continental food while he also likes spicy Hungarian.
His favorite color is Blue.
He’s passionate about reading books and has read numerous since his early teenage years – his favorite writer is J. K. Rowling, and of course his favorite book is “Harry Potter”.
In his spare time which is usually late at night, Georges likes to watch movies – his favorite actor and actress are the late Heath Ledger, and Julia Roberts while some of his favorite films include “Brokeback Mountain”, “The Dark Knight” and “The Runaway Bride”.
Age, height and net worth
Georges’ age is 48. He has short black hair and brown eyes, his height is 6ft 5ins (2.01m) and he weighs around 215lbs (98kgs). As of April 2021, his net worth has been estimated at over $1.5 million, while RuPaul’s net worth is reputedly over $13 million.
Who is RuPaul?
RuPaul Andre Charles was born in San Diego, California USA, on 17 November 1960 – his zodiac sign is Scorpio and he holds American nationality. He’s known best for his reality competition show “RuPaul’s Drag Race”, which he’s been hosting since 2009, and for which he has won eight Primetime Emmys.
RuPaul was raised in San Diego alongside his three sisters, by their father Irving Andrew Charles and their mother Ernestine ‘Toni’ (nee Fontenette). Following his parents’ divorce in 1967, the children stayed with their mother, but when he was 15 years old, RuPaul and his sister Renetta moved together to Atlanta in Georgia to attend a school of the performing arts, then in the ‘80s, RuPaul worked at the Plaza Theatre as a moviemaker and a musician.
He gained recognition in the early ‘90s when he started performing at clubs around Georgia, both solo and with various bands, and in 1993 released his album “Supermodel of the World”, which became a hit and peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play Chart. He then launched his modelling career when invited to work for MAC Cosmetics, and in 1995 RuPaul’s autobiography was published, entitled “Lettin’ It All Hang Out”. The following year saw him host his own talk-show “The RuPaul Show”, interviewing numerous celebrities including Nirvana, Cyndi Lauper and the Backstreet Boys.
His second album was released on 29 October 1996 entitled “Foxy Lady”, was followed by his third album “Ho Ho Ho” on 28 October 1997; his two following albums, “Red Hot” and “ReWorked”, were released in 2004 and 2006, but failed to gain a lot of attention. In 2008, RuPaul began hosting the show “RuPaul’s Drag Race”. His music album “Champion” was released in March 2009, and peaked at #12 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums Chart. His following albums were “Glamazon” released in April 2011, “Born Naked” on 24 February 2014, and “Realness” on 2 March 2015.
On 16 March 2018, RuPaul received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
He doesn’t get along with the transgender community, as he believes it takes gender and identity too seriously, while the drag world mocks these. His show has been criticized by various celebrities for his use of the words ‘shemale’ and ‘tranny’.
RuPaul supports the Democratic Party, and he supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.
He has stated that he began smoking marijuana when he was 10 years old, but that he’s been sober from it as well as from alcohol since 1999.
