Elaine Chappelle: The Little Known Soul-Mate Of Dave Chappelle

We all know a lot about the life of Dave Chappelle, but very little is known about her wife who has been with him for as long as he’s under the flashlight of media. The reason might be Dave’s unwillingness to speak more about his family and wife specifically. Despite the minimal appearance of Elaine in shows and events to let the fans know more about her, we have got enough to tell you to let you know the answer to the question “who is Elaine Chappelle?”

Elaine’s background
She was born on August 31, 1974, to devout Christian parents who are rumored to be emigrants from She was born and raised in her parental home in Brooklyn, New York by devout Christian Filipino parents, the same city where she would go on to meet her soul mate.

As a little kid, she used to answer the question of what her future dream is as “becoming a chef”, but those dreams definitely seem to change, and now Elaine is more focused on her family and loves being just a housewife.

Chappelle’s home

The Chappelle couple lives in Yellow Springs, Ohio. The reason for choosing to live in a not-so-urban place is Elaine’s husband’s love for serenity and peace. Also, that Dave spent most of his “Turns out you don’t need $50 million to live around these parts, just a nice smile and a kind way about you; you guys are the best neighbors ever ­­­___ That’s why I came back and that’s why I’m staying.”

At another event, Dave said that “I’ll be reminded that I’m a celebrity here, but I don’t think about it at all until somebody asks me for a selfie or something. It won’t even occur to me that that’s what it is. ____ It’s almost like a nature reserve where they’ll let me run free,” he added “I’m a protected commodity.”

Life as a housewife

Elaine has never been spotted dressed like a diva, or like how wives of other famous stars dress. This simplicity connotes that she likes to keep it decent. And she sure does seem to keep his home and family together and well-managed. The Chappelle have 3 kids; 2 sons, the elder one named Sulyman, and the younger one Ibrahim and a daughter, the youngest one, Sonal. They look, and are, a very happy and keeping-it-together type of family. The reason behind this unity might be Elaine’s decision not to pursue any career, as she’s doing very well as a housewife.

Relationship with her husband

Although Elaine has Instagram that too, just like her personality, is also private. So, the only medium through which we can know what kind of relationship the couple has is through little snippets Dave gives during his shows.  She mentions her as a supporter and alarmer when he jokes about something sensitive. His carelessness comes from his innate nature of being a comedian.

Dave accepted Islam after he had started dating Elaine, who was brought up as a staunch Christian. But luckily both were open-minded enough to accept each other wholly, without judging each other’s personal views. They’ve grown into a loving couple whose relationship does not seem to fluctuate a bit.
