RuPaul reveals his secret marriage to partner of 23 years
Drag icon RuPaul has revealed he is married to his partner of more than two decades – after a secret wedding in January.
Last week the first pictures emerged of the ‘Supermodel’ singer and RuPaul’s Drag Race host with his long-term partner, Georges LeBar.
Mr LeBar, a Wyoming rancher, had managed to stay out of the public eye for 23 years before the pair were snapped by paparazzi together.
Most of the press coverage identified Mr LeBar as RuPaul’s “boyfriend”, but in an appearance on Hollywood Today this afternoon, RuPaul dropped a bombshell by revealing they had gotten married in secret earlier this year.
When host and drag race judge Ross Matthews asked if they had any wedding plans, RuPaul volunteered: “You know what? I’ve never said this on television before, but we are married. I’ve never said it before!”
He explained: “We got married, actually, on our 23rd anniversary. I met him on the dancefloor at Limelight in 1994 on his birthday, so we got married on his birthday, the anniversary of when we met, this year in January.
“We wanted to do it… we were looking into it for tax breaks and financial things.”
Of his husband, RuPaul explained: “He’s a great guy, he doesn’t care about showbiz at all. He couldn’t care less. When [the paparazzi] caught us, we were in New York
“Most of the time he’s on the ranch in Wyoming. He has a 6,000 acre ranch, but when we have a chance to do anything, we want to go somewhere fabulous like Maui or New York because… god bless you Wyoming, but it’s very boring and the most isolated place on Earth.
“When I go there, I dress up in Western wear but nobody cares! I dress up in the most gorgeous Western outfits.”
Drag Race returns later this month – but not where you might expect it.
