Though George Coulam now has several dating accounts, he was previously married to ex-wife Susie!

Born in 1938, George Coulam is now 86 years old and is the third of six children of a Mormon family. Also known as King George, he founded a multi-million-dollar kingdom, the Texas Renaissance Festival, in 1974.

According to George Coulam’s official website, he calls himself a sexually active caucasian male entrepreneur. He also mentioned his education there, including his master’s degree in art from the University of California at North Ridge.

Though his family roots were in Utah, Coulam came to Todd Mission, Texas, and established the Texas Renaissance Festival. He built his grand empire from the festival alone, with over 200 acres of land properties in Todd Mission.

Furthermore, various estimations value George Coulam’s net worth close to $100 million.

While George Coulam kept his personal details private, he was reportedly married to his ex-wife, Susie. She was a 28-year-old from Thailand and, like George, an art enthusiast as per Texas Monthly.

However, their marriage ended, though the reason for the divorce remains private. Moreover, in 2004, George Coulam handcrafted a tempting ad for finding a local bride in Houston Press. As of now, George Coulam has not married officially.

Instead, King George was accused of hiring assistants to set up and handle his profiles on Sugar Daddy’s websites. Moreover, the Ren Faire docuseries clearly portrays George as a sugar daddy as his assistant Victor claims his profiles on 15 different online dating sites.

Regardless, he wants to settle down with a lover and lead a normal life in his twilight years after handing over the business to a suitable successor.

George Coulam also predicted his demise. At the age of 95, he said he would travel to Switzerland and leave behind his earthly possessions. Until then, he wants to retire and ‘do art and chase ladies.’
