Kevin Parker has known Lawrence since age 13.

Meeting in high school, the pair began dating a year-and-a-half before Tame Impala’s third album Currents was released in 2015.

The pair married in February 2019.

Sophie Lawrence Parker currently works as a partner in the organic ice cream company Denada.

The pair reside in Perth, Australia.

Kevin Parker and Sophie purchased the mansion for $2.75 million, a million less than the advertised asking price of $3.7 million.

Built by American producer Ken Eichenberg in the 1980s, the mansion has also welcomed the likes of Fatboy SlimThe Waifs, and the Beastie Boys.

The property also features a limestone amphitheater capable of holding up to 300 people.

With the sale not finalising until mid-2021, it could be a little while before Parker and his new family move in.
