Lady Red Couture, Who Starred on Jonny McGovern’s ‘Hey Qween’ Web Series, Has Died at 43

Lady Red Couture, the actress and local L.A. personality also known as Kareemia Baines, who starred with Jonny McGovern on his talk show web series Hey Qween, has died at the age of 43. McGovern made the announcement on social media. The cause of death is not clear but McGovern had previously told social media followers that she was negative for COVID.

Wrote McGovern: “My best friend and sister Lady Red Couture has passed. I am shocked and devastated. I never believed we would lose her like this. Please know this is real and it hurts so bad RIP @mothercouture I love you baby.”

Wehoville reports: “Baines, a West Hollywood resident, was an actress who performed in  ‘Leave It on the Floor’ (2011), ‘Judge Lady Red’  (2015), and ‘Jonny McGovern: Dickmatized’ (2011). Baines also was known as the ‘security diva’ at Gym Bar, the popular West Hollywood gay sports bar, which closed recently.  And she stood out for her height — 6 feet, 7 inches. ‘When wearing full drag and heels, she stands at 7 feet, 2 inches tall, and as a result, has nicknamed herself ‘the world’s largest drag queen in captivity’,’ says her IMDb profile.”
