Who is Khalyla Kuhn?

After graduating from high school, she enrolled in college to pursue a biochemistry degree. She worked as a tutor while she was studying, assisting struggling anatomy, microbiology, and physiology students to help pay the bills.
Though she always had an interest in sports, especially mixed martial arts, life took her on a different path when she met Bobby after finishing university.
How She Met Bobby Lee
They met through Tinder in 2013 and texted for a while before agreeing to meet. The date went well and the pair had great chemistry together. Not long after Bobby and Khalyla were a couple.
Bobby chose to keep their relationship a secret initially. But in 2016, they decided to get married in New York City. Bobby and Khalyla’s marriage was not well-publicized, unlike other celebrities.
Tiger Belly Podcast
Bobby Lee had plans to start a podcast with Erik Griffin but wasn’t able to meet up to record it because of scheduling conflicts. Khalyla at the time was recovering from a stint in the hospital due to an issue with her heart and had nothing to do.
The TigerBelly Podcast focuses on current events, pop culture and often covers topics affecting Asian Americans. Sometimes they also share personal details about lives which the audience loves. The show really took off over the last two years and it now has 747,000 subscribers.
After starting the podcast together, eventually, they felt comfortable enough to reveal they were dating. Some criticism from haters claimed that Khalyla was using Bobby to boost her profile and for his money. This stemmed from a joke she made about only being with Bobby for his money. This, of course, angered many fans. But she later explained her side on Twitter.
Aside from growing her podcast, the beauty is also racking up followers on other social media platforms. With around 339,000 followers, Khalyla Kuhn uses her Instagram account to promote her personal ventures.
Why They Broke Up
Sadly, they split up in June 2022 but still host the podcast together. Fans of the show were devastated by the news but weren’t surprised. They’ve revealed on the podcast in the past they went through marital issues.
Mainly it comes from the fact the romantic aspect of the relationship fizzled out when Khalyla had health issues in the Philippines. Bobby believed it changed to more of a caretaker relationship and felt like he couldn’t make love with her anymore. As a result, her needs were unfulfilled. They tried having an open relationship to fix this but it didn’t work out.
Brendan Schaub Drama

There was also the drama of Khalyla calling out a comedian who cheats on their wife while on another podcast. Schaub then believed Tiger Belly was posting negative stuff about him on Reddit. The chaos put a lot of strain on the relationship which played a role in the breakup.
