Christian Louboutin Facts
- Once, during an interview in 2012, he cited that he was, “much darker-skinned than everyone else in his family. You know, I felt I wasn’t French. My family was very French and so I decided they had probably adopted me. But instead of feeling it was terrible and that I was an outsider who had to go and find my real family, I invented my own history, full of characters from Egypt because I was very into the pharaohs.” Eventually, it was revealed to him by one of his sisters in 2014 that he was, in fact, a child born out of a secret love affair that their mother had with an Egyptian man.
