Perez Hilton is a man who many have come to love and many others have come to hate or dislike in the same way as many gossip bloggers. An American blogger, TV personality, and Columnist, Hilton has also tried other things including music and acting, but as it has turned out, it is in the aforementioned that he has been able to find his footing.
Perez Hilton’s Biography
We have all come to know him as Perez Hilton, but he was named Mario Armando Lavandeira Jr. at birth on March 23, 1978, in Miami, Florida. Of Cuban descent, he was brought up by his parents, Teresita Lavandeira and Mario Lavandeira alongside his sister, Barbara Lavandeira in Little Havana and Westchester.
For his education, he went to the Belen Jesuit Preparatory School, and then much later, he went to the New York University where he had been given a full scholarship. After he graduated, Mario Armando Lavandeira Jr. moved to Los Angeles where he aimed at becoming an actor and soon afterward, he began blogging.
This saw him quickly rising to the top and getting to the bottom of the good lists of many as well. That is because he thrives on celebrity gossip which naturally, does not always go down with celebrities. He has been tagged by some as the most hated man in Hollywood, a tag which he has accepted with no qualms. But then, there are times that he claimed that he was the victim of bullying and he was not the one doing the bullying.
Is He Married or Gay? – Wife, Partner, Boyfriend
The most dominant thing that Perez Hilton has built his name on is controversy and in this sector, he is not about to walk scot-free. During an appearance on Celebrity Big Brother in 2015 in which he got evicted in the seventh round, there were many complaints about him. One was as regards a revelation he made when he stated that he lost his virginity at the age of 12 to another schoolboy. The two used to have daily sex in a chapel.
Now back to his sexual orientation, Hilton is gay. While growing up he kept his sexual preference hidden from almost everyone. This is even as he is today the man who is now famous for outing celebrities he believes are in the closet for which he got some serious backlash. Nonetheless, his close friends had always believed he was gay.
It was finally when he was at the university that he decided to come out of the closet and tell his family that he was gay.
With that said, he has always kept his dating life so seriously private that no one knows who his boyfriend is, and he has never had a wife or a partner. There are some reports that claimed he once dated former actress and YouTube star, Stevie Ryan who was found dead in an apparent suicide in 2017.
Perez Hilton Kids
Hilton has never been married, nor has he been in any serious open relationship in the past. Nonetheless, he has three kids, all of whom he got through surrogacy. Beyond his work, he is very proud of his role as a parent to his three kids whom he raises together with his mom who now lives with him.
The name of his first child is Mario, the second is Mia Alma, and the third who was born in 2017 is Mayte Amor. Talking about the mother of his children, he revealed that she is an anonymous donor whom he met through an agency. She is a nice woman whom he settled for because she seemed nice as well as her good looks.
For those who have been asking why he didn’t adopt instead of having his biological children, the blogger said he wondered if people were going to ask heterosexual couples the same question. He decided on having his own kids as a way of making his father whom he lost when he was 15, live through them.
Having had the children he wants, Perez Hilton is now set, as he stated, to begin the next phase of his life which is men and romance. But before then, he will still be busy with changing diapers as well as taking his children to swim class.
