Sulayman Chappelle is the eldest son of Primetime Emmy Award-winning actor & comedian Dave Chappelle. While he does not seem primarily interested in showbiz, he has already earned enough attention as the star kid.

Well, with all the attention that he has, the question on his love life is pretty obvious. So, does he have any girlfriends? What about his wedding plans?

In this section, we are going to talk in detail about his career, relationship with his parents, siblings, and his love life?

Who Is Sulayman Chappelle?

Sulayman is the son of Dave Chappelle and Elaine Chappelle. While his father is a famous actor, writer, comedian, & producer, her mother is a housewife. Needless to say, he shares a great relationship with both her parents.

Besides, Sulayman also has a younger brother Ibrahim Chappelle & a sister, Sonal Chappelle. Unlike him, her sister has already made her debut in the 2018 movie A Star is Born. Not only this, but she has also made an appearance in an episode of the TV show Saturday Night Live.

Sulayman Chappelle Is a Muslim

You heard it right, Sulayman is a practicing Muslim. In fact, all the members of his family except his mother follow Islam. The religion came to his family after Dave converted to Islam back in 1991.

Like any Muslim, the family is pretty proud of being a Muslim. In fact, in one of the interviews, Dave called religion a beautiful thing and that he does not associate his flaws with it.

I don’t normally talk about my religion publicly because I don’t want people to associate me and my flaws with this beautiful thing

Unlike the rest of the family members, Sulayman’s mother was born in a Filipino-Christian family and still follows it.

Is Sulayman Married or Dating a Girlfriend?

To be precise, Sulayman is not married yet. But when it comes to his girlfriend, things seem a little unclear. Though he is already a grown-up, there are no reports of his romantic connection.

So far, he has not made any public appearance anyone who could be assumed as his girlfriend. Further, he has also not made any public statement on the matter.

Thus, it is safe to say, Sulayman is single and not dating. However, we hope, he speaks off if he is actually seeing someone.

His Parents Had Multiracial Marriage

Sulayman’s parents come from different racial backgrounds. While his father is an African-American, her mother Elaine Chappelle is a Filipino. The couple first came across in New York City. They soon clicked and began dating.

In fact, Elaine even attends several events with Dave. They were seen together at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as Dave received the Mark Twain Prize.

Not only this but they are also pretty much interested in NBA Games and were spotted at the NBA All-Star Game at the Staples Center.

Sulayman’s Father Dave Chappelle is a Successful Actor

As we have mentioned above, Sulayman’s father Dave is a successful actor. In fact, he is not only into acting but is also a successful comedian, writer, and producer.

He made his acting debut with a TV series Def Comedy Jam. He appeared in 2 episodes of the show from 1992 to 1995. Following this, he appeared in an episode of Home Improvement in 1995. His other TV works include The Larry Sanders Show, Crank Yankers, Saturday Night Live.

His latest appearance was in A Star Is Born, in 2018, where he played a character named Noodles.

It might sound strange, but despite being a star kid, Sulayman Chappelle is not on any social media platforms. It looks like he does not enjoy public attention. However, we hope, he decides to get on socials.

His father on the other hand is on Instagram with over 2.6 million followers. Likewise, he is also pretty popular on Twitter with over 884k followers.
