Earlier Life and Education
Richard Bertrand Spencer was born on 11 May 1978 in Boston, Massachusetts. He grew up in Preston Hollow, Dallas, Texas.
Spencer is the son of ophthalmologist Rand Spencer and Sherry Spencer (née Dickenhorst), whose family had cotton farms in Louisiana.
In 1997, he graduated from St. Mark’s School of Texas. After graduation, Spencer attended one year of school at Colgate University before transferring to the University of Virginia.
In 2001, Spencer received a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Music from the University of Virginia and, in 2003, a Master of Arts in the Humanities from the University of Chicago.
He spent the summer of 2005 and 2006 at the Vienna International Summer University. From 2005 to 2007, he was a PhD student at Duke University studying modern European intellectual history, where he was a member of the Duke Conservative Union. His website says he left Duke to pursue a life of thought-crime.
Richard Spencer Wife – Personal Life
In 2010, Spencer moved to Whitefish, Montana. He says he splits his time between Whitefish and Arlington, Virginia, although he has said he has lived in Whitefish for over ten years and considers it home. As of 2017 Spencer was renting an apartment in Alexandria, Virginia but moved out in August 2018.
Spencer married Nina Kouprianova in 2010, with whom he has two children. Before this, Spencer’s dating history included Asian women, which he has said predates his white nationalism, though this evaluation is disputed.
He was separated from Kouprianova, who is Russian-Canadian, in October 2016; in April 2017, Spencer said he and his wife were not separated and were still together.
Kouprianova has translated several books written by Aleksandr Dugin, a Russian political analyst known for his fascist views. The books were later published by Spencer’s publishing house, Washington Summit Publishers.
In October 2018, Nina Kouprianova, Spencer’s wife, accused him in divorce documents of various forms of abuse. Court documents detailed emotional abuse, financial abuse, and violent physical abuse, including when Kouprianova was nine months pregnant, and frequently in front of their children. A caregiver to the children testified in court about Spencer’s abuses towards both her and Kouprianova.
Leaked audio allegedly captures
Leaked audio allegedly captures racist tirade by Nazi media darling Richard Spencer.
Richard Spencer sought to cast his brand of clean-cut ethnic nationalism as a respectable conservative alternative to nazism, coining the term “alt-right” to refer to it and successfully attracting mainstream media interest.
In this audio recording, posted Sunday by provocateur Milo Yiannopoulous and claimed to be of Spencer, a man is heard ranting about Jews and black people in a more traditionally far-right mode. The recording is NSFW and contains terms of racial abuse.
Yiannopoulous claims the recording was made in the immediate aftermath of counterprotester Heather Heyer’s murder at the 2017 Charlottesville Unite the Right rally.
