Inside RuPauls very private relationship with his Australian husband Georges LeBar – Daily Mail

They’ve been married since 2017, but RuPaul and Georges LeBar are one of the most private couples in Hollywood.

The 60-year-old renowned American drag queen has been in a relationship with Georges for 27 years.

He first met the Australian rancher at a nightclub back in 1994, and quietly revealed they were married during a March 2017 interview with Hollywood Today Live.

‘I’ve never said this on television before: we are married,’ he said at the time. 

‘I met him on the dance floor at [nightclub] Limelight in 1994 on his birthday. We got married this year on the anniversary of when we met.’ 

And after it was revealed earlier this month that RuPaul’s Drag Race would be filming an Australian spin-off, it may be an opportunity for the entertainer to explore his husband’s heritage.

According to a report by The Sydney Morning Herald this month, the reality show will be filmed in New Zealand after a string of COVID outbreaks in Sydney. 

In a 2015 interview with BuzzFeed, RuPaul revealed he’d been ‘praying’ he’d find the perfect partner shortly before meeting Georges, 48.

‘He’s so kind and funny. I remember praying, “I want a sweet, sensitive man,” and I got an Australian who’s just lovely,’ he said.

RuPaul revealed the first thing that drew him to Georges was his height, as the 193-centimetre TV star said it was rare for him to see someone taller than he is.

‘I had to go over and say, “Who are you? What are you doing? Can I put my arms around you?”‘ he told Vanity Fair in November 2019. 

‘Because I’m tall, I’ve never been able to put my arms around someone’s shoulders who was taller than me.’

The couple rarely make red carpet appearances, and RuPaul said his husband ‘doesn’t care about show business at all’. 

‘He couldn’t care less. Most of the time, he’s on the ranch in Wyoming. He has a 60,000-acre ranch,’ he told marie claire in March 2017. 

‘It’s in two states, it’s in South Dakota, too. When I go there, I dress up in western wear and nobody cares.’

Speaking to The Guardian in March 2018, RuPaul said his and Georges’ relationship is founded in trust.

‘He and I know that on this planet where there are millions and millions of people, the person I have found on this planet that I like the very most is him,’ he said. 

‘And I know that for him the person he loves the most on this planet is me. I know that, there’s no doubt in my mind.’ 

The British and American versions of RuPaul’s Drag Race are available to stream on Stan in Australia.

RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under will premiere on Stan later this year.
