Know Paul Reubens' Age & Troubled Family Life
Paul Reubens was born as Paul Rubenfeld on August 27, 1952, in Peekskill, New York to mother Judy, who was an elementary school teacher and father Milton Reubens, who was a civilian pilot flying The United States Air Force and Royal Air Force.
He attended the Sarasota High School as his family relocated to Sarasota, Florida. After that, he attended Boston University.
He was raised with a younger brother Luke who is a dog trainer and sister Abby who is an attorney. Reubens’ family was a bit of drama in itself as his parents and siblings tussled in an ugly family feud involving violent domestic disputes, assaults, and multiple arrests. They often called the police alleging each other for violence and abuse.
Find Out Why Paul Was Arrested Which Devastated His Personal Life
Children's entertainer Paul was accused of child pornography and obscenity which was the greatest heartbreak for him. His rising career faced a terrible setback in 1991 when he was arrested at a Florida adult theatre with the charges of indecent exposure.
He was charged with exposure of a sexual organ but got himself released from county jail after posting $219 bond. This caused Paul to face public ridicule which spoiled his clean image. His fans and supporters organized support rallies and his colleagues and directors also spoke in his support.

However, again after 11 years, he was charged with child pornography in 2002 as cops found materials in his home that appeared to depict kids in sex acts. He took the responsibility by calling a few images in the collection obscene and paid a $100 fine to make it end and resuscitate his acting career in 2004.
Is Paul A Married Man Or A Gay?
Paul Reubens is definitely not a gay as he had himself mentioned in an interview with Vanity Fair that he got married in a "mock wedding" to Chandi Heffner in 1989, the adopted daughter of late heiress Doris Duke.
Moreover, he admitted that he dated American Actress and TV personality Debi Mazar from 1993 and her love helped him overcome the heartbreaks from his arrests. This evidence shows that Paul’s marriage with Chandi had ended up before 1993. But his love story again failed and Mazar married Gabriele Corcos in 2002.
As of now, he seems to be an unmarried man without a wife as there is no any news of his marriage or link-ups since 2002.
