RuPaul Leases Mineral Rights on Ranch to Oil Companies

RuPaul is an oil queen.

The “Drag Race” host told NPR what goes on at the 60,0000-acre Wyoming ranch he owns with husband Georges LeBar — and apparently, it doesn’t involve a whole lot of roping steers.

“Well, a modern ranch, 21st-century ranch, is really land management,” he said. “You lease the mineral rights to oil companies. And you sell water to oil companies. And you then lease the grazing rights to different ranchers.”

After the interview aired, some on the internet felt that the icon may have been admitting to the controversial practice of hydraulic fracking, which has been maligned by celebs such as Mark Ruffalo, Lady Gaga and Paul McCartney over environmental concerns.

Reps didn’t get back to Page Six.
