Surprise! RuPaul Married His Longtime Partner Georges LeBar
Find out why the TV personality decided to say "I do."
It's official: This week will go down in history for the most surprise celebrity weddings ever! First we find out Alison Brie and Dave Franco tied the knot, as did Broad City star Ilana Glazer, and now we're adding RuPault to the list! The host of RuPaul's Drag Race has revealed he and his partner of 23 years, Georges LeBar, are married.
RuPaul told ET that he and Georges tied the knot in a small ceremony at their Los Angeles home earlier this year. And though they signed their marriage license, RuPaul believes nothing has changed for the couple or their relationship. "That paper don't mean nothin'! If you're devoted to a person, nothing's gonna change that," he said. "And after 23 years, you know, hey, I know him. He knows me. I love him. He's my favorite person on the planet I've met. I've met a lot of people. He's my favorite person."
Why did the couple decide to wed after being together for so long? "We are devoted to each other," he said. "We don't stand on ceremony. We thought, we don't have to get married. But then, in light of what's happening currently in the world today, what's happening in Washington, we thought, you know what? Let's do it. Let's just do it, because there's too much at stake with our businesses…so that's why we did it."
The pair met in 1994, "literally, on the dance floor at Limelight," RuPaul said. They've been together ever since, and nowsplit their time between a ranch in Wyoming and their home in California. Though RuPaul gave us a glimpse into his relationship, that's probably all we'll get. "It's separate from [showbiz], you know? I'm [a Scorpio], so I'm very secretive and I keep my hand close to my vest." Details or not, we're so happy for these two!
