Leeb has been in a relationship with Canadian artist Carylann Loeppky for over 20 years. The couple have been married but are now divorced.[8] Loeppky was part of the tour personnel on Front Line Assembly tours "designing and selling merchandise and put together a visual presentation for the live performance."[8] She also created the artwork for albums of Front Line Assembly and Delerium.[9] ==References==
