Count Katz is a Polish musician known for being the ex-husband of a former supermodel and current television personality and chef, Lorraine Pascale.


Count Katz, full name Count Katz Balinski-Jundzill was born in the early 70s in Poland. His exact date of birth is not available to the public because of his privacy. There is no information available on the public record about his early years and his family details.

Music Career

Katz started his career as a musician because he had a strong passion for it. He wanted to bring the sounds of his home country, Poland, to the national spotlight. Initially, Katz wanted to stay local and learn his cultural music scene. As he got experienced, he decided to blend modern sounds with his artistic music to create a unique sound.

He wasn't able to make it as a musician outside of his home country. His fans in Poland adored him, but he couldn't extend his music past his country's borders. He was still satisfied with his career, as he was able to live the life of a musician. After he retired from music, he was content with what he accomplished. He made enough money to live a life of luxury, so he had no regrets about how things went. Currently, he works as a businessman, dealing all over the world.

Marriage to a Beautiful Super Model

Katz was married to a beautiful supermodel, Lorraine Pascale. They met each other in the early 90s and got married five years later in 1995. It only took five years for them to realize how compatible they were with each other. On one side, you had a mysterious musician from Poland. On the other side, you had an African supermodel highly sought after by modeling agencies worldwide. There couldn't have been a perfect pairing. They were as cool and hot as any couple could be in the 90s. They were both the prize of each other's eyes.

Lorraine said in an interview, "When we met each other, he was a hippie, a New York socialite. It was fascinating, and I fell in love."

The couple was blessed with a beautiful daughter named Ella. Ella Balinska was born in 1996, a year after her parents got married. They wanted to solidify their marriage, and they felt the best way to do so was to bring a child into the world. Now Ella is a beautiful actress that has gotten great looks from both her mother and a father. She has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and has been a cast member in many BBC shows.

Lorraine told The Guardian that she wanted to stay in one place when Ella was born, "I wanted to be in one place. I knew I didn't want to be flying around. I wanted my daughter to have a home that she grows up in. So we've been in the same place Battersea, southwest London, for 15 years. It's quite nice, isn't it, to have your family home that you can feel safe in? I was a child myself. I just had the idea. My husband, Polish musician Count Katz Balinski-Jundzill and I thought 'that would be nice'. It was the best decision I made."


The Career of a Beautiful Wife

The Count was very proud of Lorraine because she always had ambition even when she was already a successful supermodel. She is now a well-known English television personality and appears on TV as a professional cook.

Lorraine started her modeling career at the age of 16, and she was spotted as a potential model star by the same agent who found Naomi Campbell. At the end of the 90s, she appeared in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. She also appeared as one of the 'Bond Girls' in Robbie Williams's "Millennium" music video.

She took a diploma cookery course at Leith's School of Food and Wine in 2005 and then started her career as a cook. She also studied Culinary Arts at Thames Valley University and graduated with a first-class degree in 2012.
