Lana Del Rey found that heaven is a place on earth, as Billboard learned that she’s engaged to Evan Winiker of Range Media Partners.
It’s unclear how long the couple has been together, but over the past six months, they’ve been spotted hanging out in public together a few times. Back in September, they attended the Malibu Chili Cook-Off festival with a group of friends, and earlier this month, they enjoyed dinner and drinks at Pappy and Harriet’s restaurant in Pioneertown, Calif., where they were approached by fans for pictures.
It’s been an exciting year for Del Rey, whose just-released ninth studio album, Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd, leads the midweek U.K. chart. If it keeps its position at the summit, Ocean Blvd would mark the singer’s sixth U.K. chart crown in just over a decade, following Born to Die (2012), Ultraviolence (2014), Lust for Life (2017), Norman F*cking Rockwell! (2019) and Chemtrails Over the Country Club (2021).
She was also honored with the Visionary Award at Billboard‘s 2023 Women in Music ceremony earlier this month. “I feel like being happy is the ultimate goal. So I did it,” Del Rey said during her moving acceptance speech.
In celebration of the good news, we’ve compiled five things you need to know about Del Rey’s fiancé. See below.
He's a Managing Partner at Range Media
Founded in September 2020, Range was launched by a group of industry execs from super-agencies including CAA, UTA and WME. When he joined the team in March 2021, Winiker brought with him clients MAX, Daya, Disco Biscuits, Skyler Stonestreet and Walk Off the Earth.
“As a manager, it’s always my goal to surround my clients with the best teams in all areas,” he told Variety at the time. “This ecosystem is truly that. It’s an environment of forward-thinking people who look beyond the boundaries and walls that are categorically put in place, allowing them to open new doors and reach new peaks that we dream up.”
He Previously Worked at Full Stop Management
Winiker’s impressive résumé also includes time at Full Stop Management, where he worked for four years, after his five years at Brandon Creed’s Creed Co., which merged with Jeffrey Azoff’s shop in 2017 to form Full Stop.
He Was in a Band With Jack Antonoff
As part of indie rock band Steel Train, Winiker toured with Tegan and Sara, Ben Folds, The Fray, Silversun Pickups and more. Jack Antonoff was also a member of Steel Train, and the producer is a frequent Del Rey collaborator, most recently working on her freshly released album, Did You Know There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd.
He Has a Dog Named Henry
Winiker is often sharing adorable photos of his fluffy dog Henry, who accompanies him on hikes and even dresses up on Halloween.
