The world’s cutest and most confounding gay couple

2 03 2013

Melbourne model Andrej Pejic was recently forced to issue a denial of rumours that he had married his boyfriend, streetwear designer Rembrandt Duran, in Nevada. The fact that same-sex marriage is still illegal in the state should have been a tip-off that the gossips had missed the mark as Andrej, despite his stunning looks, is still very much a man.

Pejic is currently enjoying an extended stay in the fashion limelight (he stars in the latest Bowie video) but his bewitching feminine beauty is confounding, especially as he is not (to my knowledge) transgender and not even ‘androgynous’ (as he is often described) but simply a classical feminine beauty. And a man.

Pejic’s boyfriend is something of a hottie too. The founder of successful New York streetwear brand Adeen, he exudes playful street chic.

Rembrandt Duran is not a “hottie”. By what standards? He’s decent at best and nothing more than a Trade Jump-Off.

Andrej is beautiful and identifies as transgender. Her ex-boyfriend was beautiful (a model) and Rembrandt has got to be the biggest downgrade in history. But he has no real career and can follow Andrej everywhere (and DOES), so that’s the appeal for her. It doesn’t stop her from having her fun, and like all Jump-Offs, Remy puts up with it.

If Rembrandt Duran stopped making stupid faces in all his pics he might be a bit more than decent. It’s like he doesn’t know how to smile without sticking his tongue out or making some weird eye-brow raise thing. He’s dating a freaking model, you would think he’d learn something about taking a half-decent picture by osmosis.

Out of curiosity: Who was Andrej’s ex? (S)he hasn’t even said anything about dating Rembrandt on any social media sites and none of Andrej’s fans seemed to know for sure about them dating. How do you even know if Andrej had a boyfriend before? Do you know Andrej personally or something?

She likes to keep things private, but on their personal facebooks, they’re openly dating. Everyone who knows them knows and plenty of her fans do, too. She gets annoyed with him because he blasts it all over the internet that they’re dating (but OF COURSE he does, because although he does truly worship her, he loves the attention and he’s desperately trying to become a celeb through her). I’ll be VERY surprised if he stays off camera in her upcoming reality show.

The model ex I don’t want to say because he’s not “officially” out. Half of a model’s appeal is their mystique, which is why so many of them play coy about their personal life, even when it’s obvious. They stay half-closeted or say they’re bisexual or say nothing at all. I have no problem with that and I try to respect that. So I won’t name him but it is VERY easy to figure it out if you look around at what model Andrej used to spend all her time with all over the world ;) I don’t feel bad saying that because Remy has already told half the internet who the ex was anyway, so it’s not like I’m the one revealing it first.

I don’t want to say because he’s not “officially” out but it’s NOT hard to figure it out if you do a little looking around.

I’ve been following Andrej’s career for a little while now and the only model that comes to mind right off of the top of my head that she was with a lot or photographed with a lot, especially in the past was R.J.King, but I could be wrong. I respect the fact that you don’t want to “out” her ex, but can you say if I’m hot, warm or completely cold with this guess?

Actually i thought of rj too…rj is much better in all aspects so i dont have any opposition to them dating compare to this bloodsucker. He sure go all the way to become a celebrity, fuckin pathetic.

@one who knows:
Thanks for that and I respect you respecting the ex (if that makes sense…ha.) I don’t know if most of Andrej’s fans know because a few seemed confused when seeing this article and others mentioning that they were dating. They could have been playing coy, it’s hard to tell in text…

I agree with you on the whole Remy thing. I’m not sure if he truly worships Andrej though as I don’t know either of them personally. From an outsider’s point of view it looks likes Remy’s using Andrej to promote his, well, fashion line. If not for Andrej, no one would know who Remy Duran even was. And really, Andrej will be blowing him out of the water with the upcoming tee-shirt line.

I am curious as to why you (and many others) keep refering to Andrej as she/her. From what I know he’s not trying to become a woman and despite possibly identifying as one, he doesn’t really care what pronoun people use (as seen in his response to a fan saying that MTV used the she when announcing his colab for his shirts). It strikes me as odd that so many people prefer the she/her when refering to, well, him. Until he flat out says that he’s wishing to be female or is starting to transition, he’s still a he in my mind. And that’s his best asset in my view: being a man who does womenswear. If he becomes a woman he’s just another pretty blond. As a man he maintains the interest and he’s more than just a pretty blond.

@pure blood: wow is he ever into anime. I thought I was bad. That doesn’t bug me so much as the nudes of women he has up there. I’m not sure what to think of that.

Andrej is transgender, which she has said before publicly. Transgender does not mean you need to have a sex operation or transition. She doesn’t mind what people refer to her as or consider her, gender-wise, but everyone in her personal life refers to her as a woman/she, even her brother calls Andrej his little sister and Remy calls her his girlfriend. As I said, mystique is a big part of a model’s appeal, so Andrej let’s people decide what they want. She would rather be thought of as a “person” than a man/woman when it comes to her professional life and doesn’t mind what people call her. What you said about her best asset is in her mind as well ;) Go on calling her “he” if that’s what you prefer!

Remy has always worshipped Andrej since before they got together. He wishes he were beautiful and famous like Andrej. He follows her around the globe and will do anything to keep her. He LOVES mingling with celebs and getting attention through Andrej. He made sure everyone knew they were friends, and now he makes sure everyone knows they’re lovers. It’s Andrej’s decision, so I try not to pass too much judgment. I do hope her next companion won’t want or need her fame.

If RJ is in fact Andrej’s ex, then Andrej replaced a stallion with a warthog. Which begs the question what is in it for Andrej? He can have any looser follow him around the world or he can get anybody to blow him at a club, so what’s the value of Remy specifically? It is abundantly clear that he is using Andrej for his fame to promote himself in any way imaginable. I think Remy’s posts on Tumblr about eating out Andrej’s ass were pure embarrassment so again, what does Andrej get out of this relationship?

Yeah I had to look up transgender on wikipedia the other day cuz I was a bit confused…ha. The more you know. :) I like that Andrej’s so, open (best word I can think of) about his gender identity. You don’t get a lot of people saying: “it’s whatever at this point” and being perfectly fine with both pronouns. It’s cool.

Remy is an attention-seeker. I agree, I hope Andrej’s next companion wants/needs him for him, not his fame, his name or anything else but him as a person. I agree that it’s Andrej’s decision but sometimes people need to have someone take off the rose-colored glasses. I’m not saying Remy’s a horrible person(I’m sure we’d all do what he’s doing to be famous) because we don’t know what goes on in private but some of his comments don’t sit well.

@Suspicious Mind: Free stuff from Adeen, that’s what Andrej gets. ;) I never saw a post about that though and like some of the other things he’s said, it doesn’t sit well.

@ Pure Blood: I can’t believe that blog isn’t older. I’ve seen longer running blogs with less pics. I don’t think there’s such a thing as an anime-porn star…ahaha. But he’s 21 so, yeah. It is kind of odd that he’d have so many pics of a woman’s form when he’s dating a guy. A very pretty guy, yes, but still a male. I don’t know, I’d be a bit put-off if I was dating another man and he was posting nude females on a personal blog. Heck, I’d be a bit put off in general if my lover was posting nudes of anyone.

5 03 2013
Pure blood

Dont you feel “closer” to him? His previous blogs (which he deleted for unknown reasons) are so full of andrej (some are private pics, their phone screencaps) porns and anime. Apparently this new blog there’s not much of andrej i think he got a lot of complains?..haha maybe his real dream is to become an Anime-Porn star ;p

Pardon-My-Sarcasm

Sad enough, after this “breaking news” rembrandt only gain 100 more followers on twitter, wtf? Thats too small :( Think i should help him promote:

“Everyone..please follow our celebrity wannabe Rembrandt Duran on twitter; @Remdelarem”

FYI, i still cant get over one of his proud tweets: “Retweet @Remdelarem Of course I think I’m the greatest” — > Oh my beyotch! :o

It says something when its a common theme among complete strangers across different articles. I’m pretty sure we’re not all crazy-stalker-jealous types and some of us can see things for what they appear to be.

I don’t know Remy or Andrej personally but I hold to my belief that Remy comes off as an attention-seeker and is very likley using Andrej to become famous. It’s hard not to think that with the things Remy’s said and done.

8 03 2013

Jealous?!! C’mon we’re better than that..truthfully there are many beautiful models in this world but andrej is special cos he blurred the gender lines. He’s lucky enough to gain a spot under the limelight, but when somebody tryin to steal that..it is totally unacceptable for me

In case rembrandt saw this, i have a message for him “Work hard to gain recognition, dont use others for your own benefits, have some dignity kid”

9 03 2013
Curiosity kills kittens

I agree with you, don’t think I don’t. I only said “crazy-stalker-jealous types” because that’s what people may think of us (as in every commenter here/those that don’t like Remy) as. Anyone reading this could assume we’re jealous that Remy is dating Andrej or jealous of Andrej himself. I’m just clearing up the fact that we’re likely not and we’re basing what we think of the whole thing on what’s been posted by Remy and what not.

Anyway, I double agree with “work hard to gain recognition, don’t use others for your own benefits, have some dignity kid.” I hope Remy has seen the comments about him not just here but everywhere else. I double hope that for Andrej. Maybe it’ll open his eyes if enough people talk about it.

9 03 2013

I doubt that…cos he thinks he’s the greatest..he wont take other people opinions seriously lol..and for andrej,first and foremost i hope that love dont blind him completely..although in his situation its hard to gain true love and true friend but i know there are much better person waiting for him somewhere, not only in New York lol

Well, this is going to stir the pot but….if you talk about “working hard to gain recognition” Remy is a 21 year old with a successful clothing line that he designs himself – isn’t that quite impressive? What has Andrej “worked hard” to do? He just lucked out being born with a beautiful face and a skinny body. Not to knock Andrej – he comes across as a very cool, down-to-earth guy in interviews but lets be honest – he pretty much lucked out in the genetic lottery, he didn’t “work hard” to get where he is…He would probably be the first to admit it.

9 03 2013
MegaMind

Let me remind you androgyny and cross dressing is not quite the trend before Andrej. Are you sayin only designers work hard for their stuff? Andrej is working hard too- in his own way,thats why he graces a lot of magazine covers..they can use any female models a lot of them, but they chose andrej instead..must be because of his professionalism in front of the camera.

If you watch top models show, you know its not all about the pretty face..you need to bring out the aura and how comfortable you are with the clothes, styles and the photographer. He can pull it off no matter how ridiculous the clothes are. I believe his efforts and down to earth personality make him gain more friends in fashion industry..and Remy is takin advantage of that. To be honest, i knew Remy through Andrej..and i know thousands of people would say the same. Yes, he started the brand way before he met Andrej but the results are more magnificent after publicizing his friendship-relationship with Andrej, dont you think? :)

And one more thing, i can still accept him if he keep it low…but he goes as far as ridiculing andrej’s fans on twitter. It struck me that the time he spent with andrej unconcsiously built his “celebrity ego” and that is pointless, cos he’s not a fuckin celebrity as far as i know ;)

10 03 2013
Suspicious Mind

Nothing against Andrej, but keeping oneself skinny is not really working, like having a real job. Andrej is like a canvas upon which talented artists, designers, make-up artists, etc. create their art. The credit for all the iconic images really goes to their creativity and talent, Andrej just sits there and does what he’s told by the stylist. Andrej’s lifestyle is gradually becoming more and more being a celebrity for the sake of being a celebrity which suits Remy just fine. He gets photographed at a different club every night wearing his ridiculous hats. Remy ridicules poor people, regularly says on Twitter that giving to charity is a waste, treats women like sexual objects, thinks in terms of porn, and generally sounds like a pig. The fact that Andrej chose him to be his boyfriend says A LOT about Andrej and what kind of person he is and what his values are. The person we chose for a partner reveals so much about us, and not in a good way.

9 03 2013
MegaMind

Anyway, that skinny body is gained through hard work too..he needs to watch his diet and exercise regularly to maintain the figure cos as much as i hate to say this, his body is of a man..and lottery is not the case for him. Sometimes he has his job cancelled at the very last minute cos of some close-minded people who wants gender to be on terms.

9 03 2013
Fuck U

Well..i know some of us dont see Remy that way but mind if i tell you, andrej has tons of friends but they didnt go flaunting and mentioning andrej everytime. Like in this case,does it hurt not to share the faux marriage certs in twitter? Both of them has facebook,Remy can share privately in his facebook account..fans wouldnt know a damn thing, and independent blogs wont write about it either. Maybe he just fancy having rumors about him and andrej floating around in the fashion world, truly disgusting!

9 03 2013
Suspicious Mind

A lot depends on your definition of success. Remy decorates baseball caps with plastic letters that spell obscenities and makes “plushies” that look like an arts-nad-crafts project by preschoolers. Anybody can be a designer like him LOL

10 03 2013
Curiosity kills kittens

Remy never gained recognition for his clothing line until putting Andrej in his videos/promos. And it’s nothing to put a couple of plastic letters on hats featuring obscene words or to make plushies. I can probably walk down to my local craft store and do the same thing for way less than he’s charging. Most people didn’t even know Remy existed till he started hanging out with Andrej.

Andrej may have lucked out in the genetics department but he has to maintain a woman’s figure, not a man’s. That means he’s restricting his diet and excercising which is hard to do for some people. Personally, I’d never be able to maintain that slim of a figure for years on end. Don’t get me wrong, I am healthy and maintain a healthy figure but for me as a 6 foot 4 man trying to be a 6 foot 4 woman in fashion I’d have to half (or more) my calorie intake and that would be very hard to do daily. It’s why I’m not in fashion. ;) Anyway, I think he’s gotten a bit too skinny (when you can count all of a person’s ribs without them having to stretch…) but hey, that’s the industry.

Not only that but he’s constantly touring around the world, moving from flight to flight without much down time in between. He’s constantly being dressed, made up, photographed, stripped, cleaned up, dressed, made-up, wash, rinse repeat. Now he’s creating his own tee-shirt line, basically working Remy’s kind of job ;). His job may not be physically demanding but it must be emotionally draining to be viewed as an object all the time.

It’s not hard work like everyone else does but it’s certainly not a walk in the park. There are certain demands he has to meet and no, they may not be as tough as an every day person’s demands but they’re still demanding in some way. Could you maintain a figure about 20+lbs under your natural weight, tour the world, have people constantly staring at you, touching you and taking pictures of you all day?

@Curiosity kills kittens seeing all that nude pictures…it makes me think he treats women as sex object idk..just my personal view

He just doesn’t come off as a good person in general. Again, not saying he’s horrible but there are some things that just sit wrong with me about him.

As to why Andrej’s with him, well opposites attract. I’ve known plenty of people who have chosen not-so-nice people as mates and always wondered why the Heck they’re with them. Love is blind sometimes.

10 03 2013

I hope the opposite attracts will wear off after some time :)

11 03 2013
Suspicious Mind

I am not buying this “opposites attract” theory at all, usually there is a rational explanation as to why people are together. You look at a girl with a nasty guy and soon enough you discover that she is with him for money or they have a kid together or she believes that any boyfriend is better than no boyfriend or she is insecure, emotionally dependent, etc. Anybody noticed the way Remy talks about women? maybe cunt, whore, slut, bitch, etc is the way to go, Andrej seems to be OK with Remy calling him his bitch but realistically not much is known about Andrej’s sexuality apart from the fact that he obviously dates guys, there are people who get off on dirty talk, on being tied up and slapped around, on degradation and humiliation, Andrej seems very comfortable with the S&M imagery who knows what Andrej’s kinks are. Bottom line, there must be something behind Andrej’s association with Remy, it’s just not obvious at the moment.

I think they are housemates, thats the reason we see Remy almost everywhere,its convenient! Mightve start searching for Remy’s address as we speak..no i’m not a damn stalker if anyone wondering and i’m not a NYorker ^^

Honestly from a girl point of view (my point of view)…rembrandt is just another annoying guy who thinks he’s so hot and great, any girl will fall on his laps..maybe andrej feels the other way though cos she’s not really a girl..enough sayin’

Curiosity kills kittens

@Suspicious Mind: I can agree that there might be some deeper meaning as to why Andrej chooses to be with Remy but for right now it looks like an ‘opposites attract’ thing in my opinon. Remy’s such a no-name that it could be a nice thing for Andrej to have to introduce him to people because they don’t know him right off. Their personalities and basically everything about them is so different that there really isn’t much of a common ground (that we see). Andrej might like that fact.

Heck, maybe Andrej likes the fact that people don’t like Remy. Maybe he likes being see as a “rebel” in dating a guy like Remy. I’ll even agree with your thoughts on Andrej perhaps liking being talked down to (bitch, cunt, slut), especially since so many people wouldn’t be doing that. That’s the thing though, we really don’t know much about either of them and can only speculate.

I just hope that if/when they do break up that Remy doesn’t act too much like the immature arse he was when they had that little tiff a few months ago and starts dissing everything Andrej says/does. That might be too much to hope for though.

“starts dissing everything andrej says/does” when is that? i dont remmber seeing any dissing? Shit how could i miss that

13 03 2013

My memory sucks but maybe in Nov 2012. Andrej tweeted something like “#relationships :(” indicating something was up. When Andrej responded to some of Remy’s tweets about non-relationship things, simply responding because it was an interesting topic, Remy went off on a ‘get off my mentions’ and ‘fuck you’ spree to Andrej and his fans. It lasted I think about two days. I only saw it because it was mentioned somewhere else on the web and I went to twitter shortly after.

Yeah, Andrej could have not said anything to Remy but again, Andrej was only replying to something that interested him. Seems like it’s all been deleted now though and everything was forgiven right on time for the new Adeen promo. ;)

Anyway, MegaMind (on 09/03) mentioned the ridicule of the fans part up above there too and we might be talking of the same instance.

Thanks. What the fuck with that attitude? Like kindergarteners ~ that explains his obsession for anime. Cant believe andrej hang out with this type of person!!! Anyway i truly wish andrej dont feel insecure and embrace the typical transgenders path…he is special, i hope he realize that. i believe he’s bound to make some good realistic friends and lover, not a douchebag

Or he took it down which would be weird because he’s normally all for telling everyone who he’s dating. Or FB told him to take it down. They do tend to mistake Andrej for a woman but I’d think Remy would say something about that. Either way, it’s forever on the net. Nothing disappears if it’s been online once.

I have read all the reviews and I can only say that I´m proud of you guys; the kind of fans that Andrej has … Like you, I feel very uncomfortable when I realized how this guy is using him… but what can we do? nothing … just wait for Andrej find someone else who really loves him for who he is and not for his fame…
