Boogie Tillmon Wiki Bio
Boogie was born in Los Angeles, California USA, in 1980, of mixed ethnicity, and holds American nationality. She’s a former exotic dancer, but probably best known for being the now ex-wife of the famous voice actor, animator and the creator of “South Park”, Trey Parker.
Early life and education
Boogie grew up in Los Angeles in a middle-class family. Not a lot is known about her early life and family, as she wants to keep them out of the public eye. Boogie matriculated from a local high school in 1998, but didn’t enroll at college. Apparently, she started working as an exotic dancer when she was 19 years old, with the intention of saving money for college, but eventually stayed in that field of work instead.
Career and personal life
Although Boogie hasn’t revealed many details about her past relationships, it appears that she has been married before she started dating Trey Parker, and that she has a son with her previous partner.
Boogie and Trey met in 2009, shortly after he divorced his first wife, Emma Sugiyama. They met while she was working at a strip club – it’s been reported that Trey made numerous visits to similar establishments while still married to Emma.
Trey and Boogie dated for a few years, and welcomed their daughter, Betty Boogie Parker in 2013. In the following year, Boogie and Trey married in a private ceremony in Los Angeles, and Boogie has since quit stripping and dancing to focus on being a housewife.
Their marriage lasted for about five years, before they filed for a divorce in March 2019, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’. Their divorce made headlines in the US, as Trey was apparently worth more than $500 million at the time, but still wanted to terminate his pre-nuptial agreement to avoid paying spousal support; the settlement result hasn’t been published.
They finalized their divorce in 2020, and agreed on joint custody of their daughter Betty. She seems to be quite close to her father, and has been working as a voice actress on several of his projects since she was four years old, most notably, she voiced the character Ike in several episodes of “South Park”.
In 2021, Boogie sparked controversy online, over the photos and videos she shared from her daughter’s eighth birthday party.
She can be seen being visibly intoxicated, and behaving inappropriately. In one of the videos she posted onto her Instagram account, she appears to be taking her clothes off, and in another one she aggressively tries to push her daughter’s face into a cake. Boogie hasn’t addressed the criticism, but has since deleted the videos from the party.
Appearance, age and net worth
Boogie is 41 years old, with long black hair and brown eyes. She’s 5ft 7ins (1.7m) tall, and weighs around 120lbs (55kgs).
As of December 2021, her net worth is estimated at more than $500,000, pending info on the divorce settlement.
Trey Parker Wiki Bio
Randolph Severn ‘Trey’ Parker III was born in Denver, Colorado USA, on 19 October 1969 – his zodiac sign is Libra, and he holds American nationality.
He’s an actor, musician, writer and director, known for co-creating the somewhat controversial animated series “South Park”, and co-developing the Broadway musical “The Book of Mormon”, with his creative partner Matt Stone.
Trey was born to Sharon and Randy Parker; his mother worked as a saleswoman, while his father was a geologist. Trey was an exceptional student in elementary and high school, and was involved in honors classes. Growing up, he watched “Monty Python”, which inspired him to pursue a career in comedy later in life. His first work was a sketch entitled “The Dentist”, which he performed in his school’s talent show, when he was 11 years old, which showcased everything that may go wrong at the dentist, involving a lot of fake blood, which made the school officials very upset; his parents were alarmed, and Trey later recalled that ‘the kindergartners were all crying and freaking out’.
He started making short films with his friends when he was 14 years old, and continued making them until he graduated university. Trey was also interested in music, and started writing comedic songs at the age of 17, including writing and recording a full-length comedy album entitled “A Collection of Love Ballads for the ‘80’s Man”. As a teenager, he developed a love for musical theatre, and even joined the local community musical theatre, Evergreen Players, with whom he performed in a number of plays, such as “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”, “Flower Drum Song”, and “Little Shop of Horrors”.
Trey also played the piano for his high school’s chorus, and was the head of the choir counsel. He was very popular among his peers, who named him the ‘prom king’. Trey matriculated high school in 1988, and then enrolled at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, before transferring to the University of Colorado.
During his time there, he took a film class, and befriended his future creative partner, Matt Stone. In 1992, Trey made a short, animated movie using the construction paper animation technique, for which he won a Student Academy Award.
In the same year, Trey and his friends produced a three-minute-long trailer for the fictional film “Alfred Packer: The Musical”, based on the real-life story of a 19th century prospector who confessed to cannibalism. The trailer became a hit among other students at the University of Colorado, and the chairman of their film department convinced Matt and Trey to make it into a feature length movie. It premiered in Boulder, Colorado in 1993, and in the same year, Trey and Matt submitted it to the Sundance Film Festival, but received no answer.
This didn’t stop the young filmmakers, who held their own screening of the film in a nearby hotel. As a result, MTV did a segment about them, out of which they made numerous industry connections.
Following the film’s success, Trey and Matt moved to Los Angeles, California, and acquired a lawyer, an agent and a script deal. After trying to latch on their previous success for a while, in 199, the duo finally made a deal with Comedy Central to produce a construction-paper animated series. The duo then relocated to Denver, where they started working on the “South Park” pilot episode, which took around three months and $300,000 to complete. At the time, Comedy Central was struggling with viewership, and they heavily marketed the show in hopes that it would make the network more popular.
The first episode of “South Park” premiered in August 1997, and the series instantly became one of the most popular shows on cable television in the US. It generated more than $150 million in revenue for the network in its first year alone, and Trey and Matt became prominent public figures.
In 1999, they produced a “South Park” spin-off movie “South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut”, which earned critical acclaim, and grossed more than $86 million. Trey and Matt continue to work on new seasons of “South Park”, and the show is still considered to be a relevant piece of pop culture, despite having lower viewership compared to its early seasons. It has won numerous awards, including five Primetime Emmys, and is expected to air for the foreseeable future.
DID YOU KNOW…the voice of the opening narrator is none other than Trey Parker's? 😂 #ancientupstatenewyork 😂
Trey’s most notable work outside of “South Park” is considered to be the stage musical “The Book of Mormon”. He began writing it in 2004, with the help of Matt Stone and the writer-composer Robert Lopez; they worked on the project for more than seven years, with Trey and Matt also having to work on “South Park”. The play premiered on 24 March 2011 on Broadway, receiving broad critical acclaim. It won nine Tony Awards and one Grammy Award, while the cast recording of the songs from the play became the highest-charting Broadway cast album in more than 40 years.
Over the years, Trey has been praised for bringing controversial topics to light as a co-creator of “South Park”, and in his other works, however, his frequent criticism of both the political left and right has left many of the show’s fans wondering about his own political affiliation.
An article by “Los Angeles Times” describes Trey as a ‘not overtly political’ person, but it was revealed that he’s a registered member of the Libertarian Party.
He is reportedly very rich – as of December 2021, his net worth is estimated at more than $1.1 billion – including owning several multi-million-dollar mansions across the US, and has also bought out the Casa Bonita restaurant, which became popular because it was featured in “South Park”. He and Matt Stone have recently signed a $900 million deal with Comedy Central, to produce 14 more seasons of “South Park”, along with 14 feature-length movies.
In his spare time, Trey still performs music with his band DVDA, and has even played the piano at his own weddings.
Trey is 52 years old, with short grey hair and brown eyes. He’s 6ft (1.85m) tall, and weighs around 198lbs (90kgs).
