Iâ€™m pretty sure you all know who Paul Teutul is right? If you donâ€™t I will tell you all about him. His early years, how he started Orange County ironworks and choppers, His Tattoos, His sons and daughter, Oh yes!! he has a daughter I bet you didnâ€™t know that, and his outrageous lawsuit against his son Paul Jr. All that and so much more is here!! Just keep reading to know it all, plus some photos and video below.
Paul Teutul Is Orange County star but he is also a U.S Marine veteran from the Vietnam War which explains a lot about his temper, I mean he is so demanding, Neat, shows so much discipline in his work and those arms letâ€™s be honest for a 60 year old guy he has a damn good physic.
But letâ€™s start from his hometown, Paul Teutul was born in Yonkers, New York on May 1st. 1949. He married Paula Teutul with whom he had four children Paul, Michael, Daniel and Cristin. Paul later divorced his wife Paula and married Beth Dillon two years ago. All of Paul’s sons help him on Orange County choppers except for Cristin who attends nursing school in Rochester New York.
Paul’s first inspiration towards motorcycles started by the ones he saw on films and on the street and that is how he started building them for sale with the Orange County Choppers since 1999, and subsequently the reality show American Choppers released in 2002 by the Discovery Channel and in 2007 the show was moved to TLC.
Paul Teutul’s famous business along with his temper had collaborated with music videos such as Nickelbackâ€™s â€śRockstarâ€ť, and movies like John Travolta and Tim Allenâ€™s â€ś Wild Dogsâ€ť plus TV appearances on â€śLong Way Roundâ€ť By Ewan Macgregor, and on Family Feud featuring the entire Teutul Family in 2008.
Paul Teutul a.k.a Orange County Star, also has a passion for tattoos he acquired them from time to time when he needs to express a feeling on his life, but he had also two tattoos of his babies and by babies I mean his two bull mastiffs Marty and August.
Paul Teutulâ€™s life had a rough ride before Orange County, he recalls on his book â€śThe Tale of the Teutulsâ€ť where Paul tells how he experiments with almost every drug there is and alcohol as well, his addiction had him missing most of his childrenâ€™s childhood and gave them a bad example in their lives which led them to experiment with drugs as well, Mickey recently finished a drug rehab Program. Also in the book he recalls that one of the greatest moments in his life was getting sober; his soberness led him on getting sort of addicted to weight lifting. Paul Teutul also wrote another book in March called â€śThe Ride of A Lifetimeâ€ť where he describes his life, family and business.
But unfortunately his dark days with drugs, the process of getting sober and staying sober affected Paul Teutulâ€™s temper and not in a good way, his constant fights with his son Paul Jr. had been featured on the reality show American Chopper several times and cost Paul Sr. to fire his son Paul Jr. and ultimately sued him. After Paul Jr. got fired by his father he got involved in his own business called JR Designs that is a Consulting and Marketing Business.
This is the latest news on the Teutuls and a very sad and shameful one, the thing was that Paul allegedly can purchase his son’s stocks from Orange County Choppers Holdings, Inc, but Jr. refuses to sell, so now Sr. sues him for over a million dollars for damages and wants the court to force Jr. on selling Paul Sr and is also suing Orange County Choppers Inc.
Well now you know Paul Teutulâ€™s life much better, but take a look at some of his photos and video below.
