Who is Tulsi Gabbard’s ex-husband Eduardo Tamayo? Wiki Bio
Eduardo Tamayo was born in Penarroya-Pueblonuevo, Cordoba, Andalucia, Spain, on 2 February 1959 – his zodiac sign is Aquarius and he holds Spanish nationality. Eduardo is a politician, but perhaps best known for being the ex-husband of Tulsi Gabbard, an American politician and a major in Hawaii Army National Guard.
Childhood and education
Eduardo was raised as an only child in Cordoba, by his father who was running a small grocery store, and his mother who was teaching at a local elementary school. Eduardo has an uncle who was working with the yoga guru Chris Butler in the Philippines, and he spent some time there during his childhood.
He grew-up helping his parents around the house and their property, and learned about working with plants and trees at a very early age. Eduardo was physically active while attending a public high school in Cordoba as he was playing soccer and basketball, and upon matriculation in 1977, he enrolled at Complutense University of Madrid graduating with a degree in Law in 1983.
Eduardo launched his career in 1985 when he joined El Partido Socialista Obrero Espanol (PSOE), working closely with the Madrid Socialist Federation. On 4 July 2002, he became a member of the The World Federation of Trade Unions Electoral Committee.
Eduardo gained recognition on 10 June 2003 when he failed to attend the Madrid Assembly together with socialist deputy Maria Teresa Saez, and the two therefore helped stop the socialist Francisco Cabacco become elected president, with Concepcion Dancause winning the elections 55 to 54 votes. The elections became a political scandal, which was given the name Tamayazo while Maria and Eduardo were accused by El Partido Socialista Obrero Espanol of receiving money from the Popular Party to stop Francisco from becoming the president.
After an investigation was conducted, Eduardo was not tied to the Popular Party, and the elections were repeated. Eduardo and Maria went on to create the New Socialism party which failed to win any seats, and marked Eduardo’s retirement from politics.
Love life and marriage with Tulsi
Eduardo and Tulsi had known each other since their elementary school days, and saw each other again after numerous years in 2000, when she was on a volunteering mission in Spain with some of her friends, and they started dating shortly after meeting. In 2002, they married in a small ceremony attended by their closest friends and family, and Eduardo came to Hawaii the following year where they did volunteering work together.
Eduardo and Tulsi seemed very happy together, however, they divorced on 5 June 2006 due to, as Tulsi has stated, ‘the stresses war places on military spouses and families’, and Eduardo has since been staying away from the media’s attention, and it’s not known whether or not he has remarried.
In 2015, Tulsi married Abraham Williams who is a cinematographer and a film editor in a Vedic ceremony. They don’t have any children, and are currently living together in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Hobbies and other interests
Eduardo has been physically active since his childhood days, and has remained sporting to this day as he can still play soccer and occasionally golf with his friends.
He enjoys being outdoors in nature doing whatever he can find rather than sitting in front of the TV doing nothing. He does, however, like to watch movies late at night, and some of his favorite actors and actresses are Javier Bardem, Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz, while some of his favorite movies are “Desperado”, “The Mask of Zorro”, and “Once Upon a Time in Mexico”. He is keen on travelling and went around Europe in his 20s and 30s, visiting countries such as England, France, and Switzerland among others, while he has also been to the US mainland on several occasions, visiting states such as New York and California.
Eduardo is a lover of animals and has had several pet dogs, while his favorite animals are horses. Summer is his favorite season, as he enjoys swimming in the sea and is also keen on playing beach soccer in his old age.
Appearance and net worth
Eduardo is 61 years old. He has short black hair and brown eyes, is 5ft 9ins (1.75m) tall, and weighs around 150lbs (68kgs). As of May 2020, his net worth is estimated at over $200,000, while Tulsa’s net worth is reputedly over $500,000 according to Forbes.
