Lira’s husband of many years was Robin Kohl. He is a renowned producer best known for his work on projects like Return To Love (Deluxe Edition), Lira: The Captured Tour - Concert Film (2012), Man in the Street (2013), and From Scratch (2020). 

Besides being a producer, Robin Kohl is also a creative director, a studio and live engineer, a concert promoter, a talent manager and an entrepreneur. 

The couple who were also business partners first met in 2004. After dating for about five years, they got married on the 9th of September 2009 in a private destination wedding in Mauritius that was reportedly attended by only 15 immediate family members.

During their marriage, Lira and Robin Kohl were one of those IT couples that we all love to see. They worked together, travelled together and even appeared for interviews together. Besides being her husband, Robin Kohl was also Lira’s talent manager. 

Sadly, shortly before the couple celebrated their 10th anniversary, they went their separate ways.

In the statement that she shared on Instagram, Lira asked her fans for privacy as she and Robin Kohl dealt with their separation and reaffirmed that the bond they had formed during their marriage and work partnership would never be broken.

Lira and her ex-husband did not have any children during their marriage, which was a decision that the two agreed on.

Since her separation from her husband, Lira has kept a very low profile of her private life and it’s unclear if she is dating anybody. 

The same can also be said about her estranged husband, who like Lira has also kept a very low profile about his dating life.
