Who is Khalyla?

Born Khalyla Kuhn under the sign of Scorpio on the 31st of October 1984, in Cebu, Philippines, Khalyla is a 35 year-old Afro-Asian podcast host, and former biochemistry tutor. She is definitely best known to the world thanks to her long-term romantic involvement with actor, comedian and podcast host Bobby Lee, with whom she has been hosting the “TigerBelly” podcast since 2015. She has also had a number of other successes across several careers in the last decade.

Early life and education: Studying life itself

Khalyla was brought up alongside her sister Julianna Kuhn where they were born, by their Filipino mother Marites Kuhn and Egyptian father of unknown name and profession.

As evidenced by her choices in adolescence, Khalyla was always interested in how organisms function, coupled with a growing penchant for general wildlife. As for her education, she attended an unspecified high school in her birthplace, from where she matriculated in 2002. She then enrolled into a certain university, apparently in the Philippines, and studied biochemistry there, graduating from with a major in 2006.

Career: Trying many things

Khalyla began working when she was 17 years old, though the specifics of her early professional engagements are unknown, although she did perform various jobs, such as waiting tables and selling food on the street.

After graduating, Khalyla started tutoring children who studied anything related to the vast field of biochemistry, which mostly relates to chemistry, biology, physiology, microbiology and anatomy. Khalyla also worked at a university at this point, but some five years later left for USA. Kuhn was unable to find work in the fields she studied for in her new country, and so she again took up various jobs to make a living, so that even prior to meeting Bobby, Khalyla had a stable income and even a beach house. She kept this job during the early days of their relationship (supposedly anywhere between 2010 and 2015), was eventually invited to co-host the new upcoming podcast “Tigerbelly” created by Bobby himself, and featured in its first release in September 2015.


Khalyla has since participated in every episode, and remains one of the two celebrities of the show.

The success of “TigerBelly”

Approximately a year after the podcast’s inception, “TigerBelly” was taken in among the other All Things Comedy (ATC) podcasts, which greatly contributed to its popularity, and thus Khalyla and Bobby’s income. Created by Al Madrigal and Bill Burr, both of whom are world-class comedy connoisseurs, this digital media content creation studio hosts a variety of famous comedians. It has been going strong for four years, with one new episode comes out every week, their total being 216 as of late-2019.

Love life: Bobby Lee’s wife

Bobby and Khalyla are yet to tell the public exactly when they met, but the how was revealed during an unconventional interview. The YouTube show “Hot Ones” provides its viewers with very specific answers from numerous celebrities, given while they are eating chicken wings encrusted with various kinds of spicy sauce, ranked from mildest to hottest. Around the beginning, Bobby was asked to identify the girl he was photographed laying on in a fruit loops bath, to which he replied ‘That’s my girlfriend.’ He subsequently stated that they met on Tinder, and that he sent her a few pictures from the set as an ice breaker.

They are believed to have entered a relationship right after their first date, and have been going strong ever since. Khalyla and Bobby married without telling a soul at some point in 2016, at a church in New York – apparently not even their closest relatives attended. They don’t have children, but live together with their brown dog in Southern California.

What makes Bobby Lee so famous?

Born Robert Lee Jr. on the 18th of September 1971, in San Diego, California USA, Bobby Lee has been active in the entertainment business since 1994. He started out as an amateur stand-up comedian at the La Jolla Comedy Store in his birthplace, and later moved into Hollywood.

His first on-screen appearance was in “The Underground Comedy Movie” in 1999, while his most famous involvement yet is his portrayal of a vast array of characters in the world-famous “MADtv” comedy TV series aired from 2008 to 2016. He’s also known to the public as Bobby in “Pineapple Express” from 2008. Thanks to the massive success he has had thus far, he’s set to be featured in five upcoming titles, which makes for a total of 72 credited roles. Bobby’s signature sense of humor and unique appearance make him unforgettable to the masses, which is how he’s succeeded as an actor.

“TigerBelly” and its popular guests

It was long ago revealed in the podcast that Bobby Lee has been an old friend of adult film actress Asa Akira for a substantial amount of time, and she confirmed this with a personal visit in the middle of October 2019. The episode with her was an exception, hence dubbed one of the few specials of “TigerBelly”. Over the course of the video, it becomes evident that Asa and Bobby are really good friends, while she also has a great relationship with Khalyla. Akira belongs to the group of many influential figures from the entertainment business who have had a say in the podcast, and have aided its increase in ratings.

Is Khalyla a gold digger?

March 2018 proved to be a troublesome time for the pair, as controversy was sparked following the public’s outrage at a particular “TigerBelly” episode, in which Khalyla jokingly stated that she only married Bobby for his income, actually related to a number of previous statements in the podcast. This rumor was popularized by those who weren’t fans of the show, and simply took what was stated as a serious claim. To address the (supposedly) shocked public, Khalyla posted on Twitter, stating ‘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. Yet, all of who I am has been reduced to a 40 second clip taken out of context. Ok internet, you win, I’m heartbroken.’ The rumor later subsided due to an obvious lack of evidence, and as Khalyla and Bobby are considered one of the most loving wedded couples in show business.

What is Khalyla’s net worth?

Khalyla’s current wealth is close to $500,000. Most of her net worth comes from her ubiquity in more than 200 episodes of the podcast “TigerBelly”; it is also monetized on YouTube, and according to Social Blade, it makes her approximately $10,000 on a monthly basis.

Her wealth combines with her husband’s net worth of over $1 million as of late-2019.

Body measurements: Is Khalyla all natural?

While not many fans have been wondering about Khalyla’s body, seeing as she has almost no revealing pictures at all, there’s still the fact that she did have her breasts augmented. The surgery is not thought to have occurred prior to 2015.
