Kevin Lazan Married, Relationship with Rachel Platten
Lazan’s relationship with Rachel Platten is the reason why he is well known to the media. The couple met in 2006, and thanks to Lazan’s affinity for music and film, it was easy for Platten to fall in love with him. “We understood each other immediately,” Rachel once said about her meeting with Kevin. She added: “Kevin is friendly and brilliant, he loves music and is an incredible film quitter, which I really appreciate.
Her first date, however, was not exactly the perfect one. Platten once described it this way: “It (the first date) was really disgusting, filthy, a kind of Lower East Side Dungeon Bar. It [looked] like a lesbian night that night, so lots of women were cuddling, which is really cool. But he was really embarrassed. He was like, “Oh my God, this is not what I wanted you to do. Oh, my God. I think his friend was messing with him”.
After 6 solid years of dating, the couple decided to get married in 2012. The ceremony was a Jewish ceremony at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, Rhode Island.
Talking to New England Weddings about their big day, Platten said: “I realized that [planning a wedding] can be as artistic as writing a song. I really threw myself into the work.”
Platten and Kevin supported each other’s careers. Talking to US Weekly, Platten lovingly said of her husband: “I’m married to an amazing man, we’ve been together for 10 years, and he’s a huge reason why I continue to believe in my dreams. Her song Superman was dedicated to her husband who was struggling with his sick father at the time. Platten was in the process of recording the album, so she thought it would be wise to write a song to support her husband from afar.
“I couldn’t be there as much as I would have liked. I felt really selfish and like I wasn’t a good partner. And the only thing I could do was to write him a song, right? I’m about 3,000 miles away and I wrote to him that song because I thought you were there for me, very loving and very supportive. And look, you don’t have to be strong right now. I have you. So I’m really glad I got to record this song.”
Kevin and Rachel haven’t started raising a family together yet. At the time of writing, they have no children.
