Who is Bobby Lee?
American comedian and actorRobert Young “Bobby” Lee Jr. was born on September 17, 1971 in San Diego, California, USA, and is of Korean descent.
He was raised in Poway, California by his parents, Robert and Jeanie Lee, along with his younger brother.
He attended Painted Rock Elementary School before transferring to Twin Peaks Middle School, and eventually attended Poway High School. When he entered high school, he was part of their break dance team. He left his parents’ house when he was 18 and attended Palomar College, but later dropped out. While in college, he worked in coffee shops and restaurants in San Diego.
Around the age of 12, he began abusing drugs such as marijuana and methamphetamine – he went to rehab for his drug addictions three times and finally ended his substance abuse when he was 17.
He has said that while on drugs, he won a wrestling tournament while under the influence of LSD and methamphetamine.
When he started working on “MADtv,” one of the producers told Bobby that “he wasn’t funny” and that “they wouldn’t use him on the show very often.” Due to the pressures of his job, he fell back on Vicodin after 12 years of sobriety. He got sober again after another “MADtv” producer, Lauren Dombrowski, defended him and fought for his position after being fired from the show for the second time. Sadly, Lauren passed away at the age of 51 when she lost her battle with cancer on October 8, 2008 in Los Angeles.
Bobby reportedly said that one of the few times he’s ever cried was at Lauren’s funeral.
On the 224e episode of “TigerBelly,” he confessed to the show’s guest, Theo Von, that he relapsed in August 2019 following the death of his father. At the time the episode aired, Bobby was 11 days sober and had recently left rehab. He also refers to himself as a recovering alcoholic.
From 2001 to 2009, he was a regular on the comedy television series ‘MADtv’. He has also acted in several films including 2004’s ‘Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle’, 2008’s ‘Pineapple Express’ and 2012’s ‘The Dictator’. His most recent appearance was alongside Oliver Hudson and Jenna Fischer in the ABC comedy series of 2018. “Break up together.”
His annual income is estimated to be around $500,000, and he has a net worth of around $1 million as of early 2020.
Khalyla has been very quiet about details about her career. According to several sources, she worked as a waitress in a beach bar close to her home. She only gained popularity and fame when she married YouTuber and comedian Bobby Lee.
In 2016, Khalyla and Bobby started co-hosting a video podcast titled ‘TigerBelly’.

Khalyla met Bobby on the popular dating app Tinder. They have both stated that neither of them were serious at the beginning of their relationship as Tinder is known for being used as an app to help set up “hookups” or “booty calls”.
Their intense chemistry led them to start dating in October 2013 and they got married in New York in August 2016. They have no children together and have shown no interest in starting a family.
Although they seem happy, Bobby’s fans are suspicious of their marriage and use clips from their podcast series to prove their points. Khalyla is known for thriving in internet controversies, often making ambiguous and obscure comments on her social media. Such comments include calling her husband her “first lesbian boyfriend,” being open about not wanting a monogamous relationship, and having a desire to see other people, not just her husband. She often speaks of her love and obsession with money, and brags about past affairs and relationships.
She is often accused of being a gold digger; on her social media, she expresses her love for expensive material possessions, such as cars, clothes, and jewelry, and likes to post pictures of her luxury items. Despite the rumors, Khalyla disagrees with some of Bobby’s fans, saying she was living comfortably before meeting Bobby, so nothing has really changed.
On March 14, 2018, she publicly defended herself on her social media, posting the following: “I had a good job, a nice house on the beach, great friends, a modest but comfortable life, everything arranged before I met Bobby. I’ve been self-sufficient since I was 17. Yet all I am is reduced to a 40-second fragment taken out of context. Ok, internet, you win, I am?.”
Khalyla currently resides in San Diego, California with Bobby.
