Lana Del Rey and Range Media Partners’ Evan Winiker are engaged. It’s unclear when their affair started because the two have generally kept this under wraps. According to Billboard, Del Rey and Winiker have been seen out in public together many times in recent months, including at the Malibu Chili Cook-Off in September and while eating at a restaurant in San Bernardino earlier this month.
Prior reports connected the “A&W” singer to Jack Donoghue, another artist.
Winiker, a managing partner at Range Media, collaborates with artists including Walk Off the Earth, MAX, Daya, Disco Biscuits, and Skyler Stonestreet. As a former member of the band Steel Train, which performed alongside artists including Tegan and Sara, Ben Folds, The Fray, Silversun Pickups, and others, he is also a musician. The producer Jack Antonoff, who was also a member of Steel Train, frequently works with Del Rey. He most recently contributed to her newly published album Did You Know There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Boulevard.
“As a manager, it’s always my goal to surround my clients with the best teams in all areas. This eco system is truly that,” he told Variety. “It’s an environment of forward thinking people who look beyond the boundaries and walls that are categorically put in place, allowing them to open new doors and reach new peaks that we dream up.”
If Ocean Blvd maintains its top spot, Del Rey will earn her sixth U.K. chart victory in less than ten years, including Born to Die (2012), Ultraviolence (2014), Lust for Life (2017), Norman F*cking Rockwell! (2019), and Chemtrails Over the Country Club. It’s been an eventful year for Del Rey (2021).
