Rufus’s new beau

June 25, 2006

Here is a photo I found on the Rufus Wainwright message board taken by someone at Patrick McMullan Company. After much speculation on the RWMB about Rufus’s new beau, it was leaked that his new friend was called “Jorn,” but then we were told it was Jörn (mit umlaut) (“sounds more like yearn than porn”). Now I see on PMc that this chap is called Bjorn Weisbordt (no umlaut on this website). More importantly, there was much discussion as to their heights: the consensus seems to be that Rufus is 5’11” and Bjorn is 6’1″. Hmm, so much to learn.

I, and many on the RW message board, are very happy for Rufus and Bjorn [or Bjørn, or Björn].

Update: his name is Jörn Weisbrodt. See comment below for more details.

Your information is not correct.
In Patrick McMullan Website Company the name of the boyfriend is misspelled. His real name is Jörn Weisbrodt. He works in the Berlin Opera as “Personal Assistant to General Manager and Head of Artistic Production Special Projects”. Read in the website http://www.staatsoper-berlin.org/en/fs_e7.htm
Rufus and Jörn met on summer 2005 because Berlin Opera offered to Rufus to take part in the vanguardist opera “Soccer Songs”. Mr Weisbrodt as Head of Artistic Production Special Projects met Rufus to discuss the proyect … And you can imagine the rest.
According to Shangay Lily, the writer who interviewed Rufus in November in Madrid, Rufus told him in the after-party that Jörn is his “boyfriend”. Also I know Shangay is 1,90 meters long, and Rufus is only a little smaller than him in the pictures.
