Does Trixie Mattel have a husband or partner?
Fans are interested in who Trixie Mattel’s husband is, but she has been dating David Silver since 2016.
David Silver and Mattel have been together since 2016. Fans got a glimpse into Mattel’s personal life through a Netflix documentary.
Additionally, Silver is the performer’s caring and supportive boyfriend. But he’s not like most friends on stage. Silver has been working in the film field for more than 15 years. He has worked on major Hollywood films such as The Break-Up with Jennifer Aniston and Batman Begins.
Although they try to keep their relationship out of the spotlight, Mattel keeps talking about Silver in public. She even gave him credit for her upcoming “Grown Up” tour.
Mattel said, “David went to school with Nick, who’s a great filmmaker and the perfect person to just have your shoulder and get all of that.” Mattel is very private when she’s not on stage, which is why she was initially reluctant to make the documentary.
In the end, Trixie agreed to star in the documentary, which everyone loved.
Trixie Mattel didn’t have parents to be there for her
Trixie Mattel’s parents weren’t very helpful. Trixie and her brother were raised by their mother and stepfather. When Mattel acted like a girl, her stepfather, who was homophobic, called her Trixie.
Mattel ended up choosing Trixie as their drag name. The abuse sometimes went beyond insults and became physical. Her mother didn’t help her much, and when Trixie was picked up by social services, she said nothing.
Trixie doesn’t like to think about these memories because they are sad and scary. Mattel’s mother is partly to blame for how tough Mattel’s childhood was, but Trixie doesn’t hate her. Her brother, on the other hand, hated her mother long before he could forgive her.
Growing up, Trixie was cared for and supported by the adults in her family. Her grandfather taught her to play the guitar, which sparked her interest in music.
A friend gave Trixie’s brother a guitar, but he only played it for a week before quitting. When Trixie was 13, her grandfather helped her learn to play.
