To start our list of famous Houston residents, we’ll give you a name that makes a lot of sense, Joel Osteen. The megachurch owner is famous for his inspirational sermons, wide range of products, and for having one of the largest congregations in US history.
Unsurprisingly, he has a massive home in the heart of Houston. Right now, he lives in the highly coveted area known as River Oaks.
If you have been listening to Top 40 hits, chances are that you recognize this name immediately. Megan Thee Stallion is one of the most famous female rappers of all time, and surprise! She’s originally from Houston!
Megan Thee Stallion currently has multiple homes, including one that was recently robbed in Los Angeles. However, that doesn’t mean she’s left Houston for good. She still has a home here because she’s such a huge fan of the city.
Controversial rapper and songwriter Travis Scott is one of the hottest names in the music industry today. While he may be dealing with a lawsuit due to the Astroworld deaths, Scott still seems to have come out on top (Hey, he dated a Kardashian).
Most people would never guess, but Travis Scott currently lives in Missouri City, close to Houston. This makes sense since he grew up being raised by his grandmother in Houston.
Another famous celebrity who lives in Houston is George Strait. And to a point, it makes sense that the man who sang about his exes being in Texas would choose to live in Houston. He’s a Texan native through and through. George Strait has multiple properties throughout the state, with a favorite of his being in Houston.
50 Cent is the last name you would expect to see on a list of celebrities that live in Houston, but here we are. Since his bankruptcy filing, the rapper-turned-entrepreneur has been taking a closer look at everything Houston has to offer.
In recent months, 50 has been making major moves in town. Along with dipping his hand in several different new companies, he has a pending partnership with the Houston Astros.
Ted Cruz is the current figurehead behind most of Texas’s politics, and as a major GOP player, it’s hard not to notice his name in the papers. Whether you like him or loathe him, Cruz has a long history of living in Houston.
His Houston home was most recently mentioned in a scandal involving police being called to his home over a “family matter.” Either way, it’s clear that Cruz enjoys living here—even if the news occasionally hears about related antics behind closed doors.
One of the perks of living in a place like Texas is that you get to enjoy the uniquely fascinating part of seeing Texas socialites in action. Texas has a way of bringing old Southern charm to social settings.
Lynn Wyatt is often seen as a queen among Texas socialites. When she’s not mingling with the who’s who of the upper crust, she’s helping important causes. She also happens to be a resident of Houston’s illustrious River Oak neighborhood.
Most people don’t know Tilman by name but don’t be fooled. Fertitta is one of the wealthiest men in Texas as well as a resident of River Oak. Like many other billionaires, he is a social media personality who also made his fortune as a CEO and investor.
Fertitta is mostly known in his Houston neighborhood for being the owner of the Houston Rockets. However, he has an entire portfolio of wildly successful businesses. Needless to say, he’s always looking to network with other people.
To a point, it almost feels like cheating to mention that a member of ZZTop would live in Texas. I mean, look at how they look. They’re basically Texan cowboy swagger in human form. Billy Gibbons, one of the band’s vocalists, has been a long-time resident of Houston.
Along with having a home in the Houston area, Gibbons also has a music warehouse where he stores memorabilia, records new music and just does music things. It’s a fitting way to live out life.
Fans of old-style country crooning would love to hear that Johnny Lee is a neighbor of theirs. As a member of the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame, it’s safe to say that all Texans claim him—at least to a point.
But where does he live? The “Looking For Love” singer has been a happy Houstonite for ages. All things considered, he reps the Lone Star State harder than most other people on here. We approve.
Houston is a great place to live, whether you are a celebrity or one of the regular folks who live alongside them. This town has seen a massive increase in interest from investors and the rich and famous. And we’re sure more celebs will move to Houston in the future. Once you come to Houston and see it for yourself, you’ll understand why.
