Early life, education, family
Khalyla Kuhn was born on 31 October 1984, in Cebu Philippines, but was raised in the US by her mother Marites Kuhn, with her younger sister, Julianna. Her father was Egyptian. After high school she went to College, and specialized in biochemistry.
After graduating Khalyla started tutoring other students in subjects such as physiology, anatomy and microbiology, and worked as a waitress too. She became popular after she started dating Bobby Lee. In 2016 they began the podcast “Tiger Belly” on YouTube, which now has almost 400,000 subscribers with 270 videos published, and close to 70 million views. The videos cover different subject, such as relationships issues, politics, showbiz, sexuality etc. Its premiere is every Thursday on YouTube, but it is aired on other applications too.
Bobby planned to co-host the podcast with Erik Griffin, as Khalyla spent some time in hospital due to hear tissues after a trip to Philippine – she was thinking to start her own podcast and be preoccupied with that instead of her health problems. Booby came into her podcast and they were doing it so well that his proposed co-operation with Griffin never happened.

Khalyla and Bobby started chatting on the popular dating site “Tinder”, soon agreed to meet and began a relationship; they married in New York City in August 2016. Bobby was never linked to any other woman, so there were rumors that he is gay. On the other hand, Khalyla was dating other men in her past life.
People accused Khalyla for marrying Bobby just for popularity and money.
It’s a fact that her fame on social media was raised thanks to the relationship, but they have been together for years now, and never left an impression that their marriage happened for selfish reasons. She addressed those rumors in a post on Instagram in 2018, explaining that she had life before Booby: ‘I had a good job, a nice home by the beach, amazing friends, a humble but comfortable life, all carved out before I met Bobby. I’ve been self-sufficient since I was 17.’ The couple now lives in Los Angeles, California – they don’t have children.
Robert Lee Jr is an American comedian and actor with Korean origins. He was born on 18 September 1971in San Diego County, California USA. He was raised in Poway, California with a younger brother, who is a musician. After he finished high school, he went to Palomar College, but never finished it. At the age of 18 he was working in coffee shops and restaurants to support himself.
Bobby had drug problems from the age of 12, when he started using marijuana and methamphetamine, so he eventually went into rehabilitation that ended with success five years later.
Bobby also had a Vicodin addiction at the beginning of his career, which started because of the pressure he felt.
He started to work for The Comedy Store in San Diego, and decided to try stand up comedy which ended in regular performances – his parents didn’t support this career because they wished him to continue the family business. Bobby was a guest in “Jay Leno’s Tonight Show” which changed his relationship with his parents, as they accepted his life of a comedian. He started acting in 2001 in the TV series “MadTV”, through 2009.
