Rene Dif biography

(Rene aka Handsome, Påsan, Diffedrengen)
Male singer of the group Aqua.

Rene was born on 19th of October 1969 in Copenhagen. Brown eyed and dark haired, he is 1,89 m tall and weights 89 kg. He has one sister and two brothers. His father is Algerian and his mother Danish, both worked in a hospital. He never liked school and was thrown out by several. He left primary school after 9th grade and started working on a cruise ship. He also worked as a window cleaner, a butcher, and a chef. While in Barbados, René heard a local DJ on the radio and decided he wanted to be a DJ. From 1987 to 1995 he deejayed in Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Greece. He had a daughter called Daniella, born in 1990. Then he became the rapper for Swedish eurodance project Factual Beat.

According to an interview in 1998, he likes reading Stephen King, listening to the Babyface, watching the Jerry Springer show, eating hot'n spicey food. He drives a Ferrari 355 F1 Berlinetto. His favourite film is Moonbase Alfa. He has no pet for the moment, but he would really love to have two dogs. His favourite hobbies are cooking, watching video and sleeping. He has a bad habit : biting his nails. In many years, he thinks he'll keep on working on music, probably remixing for others.

Gravel voiced René played the Ken to Lene's Barbie in the band's massive first hit. He was also a Hip Hop DJ in his native Denmark, and it was while he was spinning platters in the studio that he first ran into Claus and Soren, eight years before. He made his own particular contribution to the band when he found Lene Nystrom and asked her to join them. And the rest, as they say, is (rather long) history.

René's own musical influences are chiefly rap and soul. When asked what the best thing about being in the band was, he replied,  'Everything! It's amazing that you can travel so much and meet people from all over the world.' He was particularly chuffed when the band were given a gold disc for selling a squillion copies of Barbie Girl in the States, and their record company threw a huge party for them in Hollywood. One drawback about life in the fame fast lane, though, is being separated from his family. René acknowledges the support all their parents gave to them before they made it big and now he spends time with his family 'every free minute'. When the band are away, he said they all telephone home every day.

René was in a relationship during 3 years with fellow Aqua band member Lene Nystrøm, they split in 1998. Then he started dating model and actress Ibi Støving.

2003 : he published his autobiography entitled "Popdreng - Ud af skabet" (Pop boy - Out of the closet). He broke up with Ibi Støving and was sentenced to 30 days' imprisonment for domestic violence. Later, he started dating model and choreographer Stine Kronborg

2004 : he began an acting career in 2 Lasse Spang Olsen films : "Den gode strømer" and "Inkasso".

2006 : he opened a restaurant called Oil in downtown Copenhagen

2007 : René released a song last summer Jamaica Ska under the name Mista Dif. He starred in the movie "Pistoleros". He met health coach Rikke Maija and together they had a daughter called Mabel.

2008 : end of March René released a second single under the same name All Up To You. His restaurant closed after going bankrupcy, and he started a coaching company, Entertainment Coaching. He took part to a TV show entitled AllStars 2008 on TV2 and won the final. He was awarded DKK 250,000, which he had chosen to donate to the residential institution Sirius on Bornholm. When Sirius was closed, the playground for which the money was used was moved to Østermarie, which contributed to René being named honorary artist in the city. He even got a private road named after him.

2009 : in September he participated in the 6th season of TV show "Vild med dans", where he danced with Luise Crone Dons and finished in 6th place.

2011 : Rene Dif appeared in the comedy serie "Kvægræs" on Danish TV2 Zulu. He married his girlfriend Rikke Maija.

2012 : he released a solo rap single in Danish entitled Døden os skiller. he starred in the movie "Det grå guld".

2013 : he produced a single under the name Ferrish Key feat. Tina Stachowiak entitled Mit Hjerte Kalder. Follow-up Dance All Night featured Kaya Jones (formerly from the Pussycat Dolls). Then he launched a jewels collection under name Dif Jewels. With Rikke Maija, he had another daughter named Hailey.

2014 : he got divorced from Rikke. One year later, he met Linet Jo
