Tom Ford has secretly married his partner of 27 years, Richard Buckley!
The 52-year-old fashion designer, who credits Justin Timberlake and Scarlett Johansson among his many Hollywood fans, revealed the joyous news Monday evening.
“We are now married, which is nice,” he said in a conversation at the Regent Street Apple store in London. “I know that was just made legal in the U.K., which is great, but we were married in the States.”
The pair met in 1986 at a fashion show when Tom was 25-years-old and Richard was 38. They welcomed their first child, a son named Alexander ‘Jack’ John Buckley Ford, in 2012.
“You can look at someone and feel like you’ve known him forever. The first night I ever had drinks with Richard I felt I knew everything about him,” he said in a 2011 interview with OUT magazine.
Tom’s name has become quite familiar with a younger generation thanks to Jay Z’s track “Tom Ford” — he raps, “I don’t pop molly, I rock Tom Ford.”
"If you're in the business of a brand it's one of the best things that could happen to you," he said, adding hearing thousands of people scream his name at a Jay Z concert “freaks me out.”
“I want to crawl under a rock because I’m actually very, very, very shy and no one ever believes this!” he said. “I really am very shy.”
We’re now left wondering if Tom rocked Tom Ford at his wedding…
