Tilly, A Lesbian Or Married To Her Husband?

Those who are big fans of Tilly might know the fact that she was once married to Simpsons co-creator late Sam Simon. Sam and Tilly were married in 1984  and after several rows which are not made public, the pair got divorced in 1991 but were still close friends. 

Simon passed away tragically during March 8, 2015, due to Colorectal cancer and his ex Tilly, as well as his then-girlfriend Kate Porter, made claims to his $100million fortune as Tilly received money from his projects as part of their divorce but in the end, he donated to charities and animal rights organizations.

However, the passing of Sam was something that was not easy to get over for Tilly as her social posts suggest.

But following her divorce with Simon, she was later linked with famous poker player Phil Laak, a master in the poker world. They two first met at the 2004 World Poker Tour Invitational at Los Angeles’ Commerce Casino, which Phil won the tournament. 

Also, Tilly is said to be the one to initiate the move and ask for Laak's number. Having not had the best of starts to their connection, they slowly developed things between them and they were then spotted at several places together flaunting their romantic moments.

Also, the love they have for poker is not far from the eyes of people.

The love Tilly and Laak share for poker is famous enough for them to be called a Poker Power Couple on Sep 13, 2014.

The two are still going strong and those who also follow her on her social sites must be able to see the two still together.

Besides being famous for her love for poker, she has also portrayed some lesbian characters in her career and that is something she did with great skills and that often prompts people to call her a real-life lesbian.

But her relationships with men kick the rumors out of the window and keeps her to an on-screen lesbian.

Jennifer Tilly has made a name for herself with her on-screen lesbian roles on Mar 17, 2010.

The couple was recently seen together on Phil Laak's Instagram on 29 November 2018, where the duo was sharing smiles together.
