Philip Hansen Anselmo, best known by his stage name Phil Anselmo, is quite a familiar name in the music industry. He is a heavy metal vocalist of American nationality who came into prominence because of his involvement with the famous band Pantera. Besides that, he is also known as the lead singer for Down and Superjoint.
Unlike his professional career, Philip’s first marriage could not be successful. However, eventually, he found love and now shares a blissful marital life with Kate Richardson. So, what does Phil Anselmo’s wife does? Keep reading to find out.
Have Been Together For Many Years
Before getting into a relationship with her, Kate Richardson’s partner was married to Stephanie Opal Weinstein. The former duo reportedly met in early 1995, and by 1998, they were engaged. In October 2001, the ex-couple shared their wedding vows but divorced three years later in 2004.
Kate and Philip met through mutual friends. She was friends with Kirk Windstein and Jimmy Bower through Crowbar and Eyehategod, respectively. When Philip’s band, Down went on tour, they had a day off in Grand Rapids. Then, Kirk called her to come to have some beer, and there, the duo met.
Unfortunately, Philip’s relationship with Kate has been kept low-key, so the exact timeline remains a mystery. While some online tabloids claim the pair started dating in 2004, as per IMDb, Kate and Phil got married in 2004. However, as per an article published in October 2014, Kate was Philip Anselmo‘s partner then.
Likewise, as of December 2015, the lovebirds have already been engaged. She currently goes by the name Kate Richardson-Anselmo. But, it is not known when the duo exchanged their vows. Let’s hope the lovebirds talk about their marital life in the coming days.
Phil Anselmo’s Wife Co-Owns His Record Label
The lead vocalist and his spouse share a blissful marital life. He even credits her with helping him through his darkest day. Likewise, his path to sobriety came after meeting her. The duo shares a loving bond, and not only are they together in their courtship but also in business ventures.
In 2001, Kate Richardson’s husband started his own record label, Housecore Records. Currently, she is the co-owner and manager of Housecore and Nodferatu’s Lair recording studio. She is also the tour manager for all of Philip Anselmo’s projects. Richardson works with her partner, starting from recording to producing and others. She also helps to run one of the best metal festivals in the country, Housecore Horror Film Fest.
Phil Anselmo’s wife once revealed that Housecore, in general, was her proudest achievement. Apart from the record label, she is proud of every man and woman involved in it. She also referred to every employee as one big family.
Many must be wondering how she got her start. In high school, Kate was in a few bands, and after graduating, she went to Grand Valley State. As a college student, Richardson worked at the student-run radio station. She started as a DJ and then became a Metal Director. A year later, she became President. She used to attend the CMJ convention each year, which helped establish many business contacts that came in handy later.
Richardson then began working as a promoter and started booking her own shows, which she did for two or three years. At that time, she gained a lot of experience even though she had her fair share of earnings and losses. All those experiences helped her in her current role as a tour manager.
Do The Couple Have Any Kids?
As mentioned earlier, the lovebirds have kept their marriage lowkey, so it is unknown when the duo tied the knot. No matter how long it has been, the duo seems to enjoy their marriage.
Talking about Phil Anselmo’s children with Kate, both do not have any yet. The duo might be planning or might not want to have kids. The married pair live on Phil’s 17-acre spread in the pine woods with their dogs, cats, and winged creatures, a peacock, chickens, and ducks.
Kate Is One Of The Three Children Of Her Parents
It is not known when Kate was born, but she celebrates her birthday in July every year. She was born as one of three children of her dad, Buzz Richardson, and her mom. She grew up with her sister, Kelly Richardson, aka Kelly Minnick, and brother Sean Richardson. They all must share a good bond.
All in all, Phil Anselmo’s wife must be living a content life with him. She must be doing good work, which must have helped her make a living. We look forward to knowing more about the couple in the coming days. Nevertheless, we wish Richardson more successful days and happy life.Articles, Celebrity Babies, Celebrity Feuds, Celebrity Siblings, Entertainment, Richest Celebrities, Keep In Touch With eCelebritymirror.
