Leonard is the son of Mark Leonard and Kim Robertson.

He is the youngest child of the family and has four sisters.

His father was shot and killed on January 18, 2008, at the Compton car wash he owned.

Leonard insisted on playing the next evening and broke down emotionally after the game.

As of 2019, the murderer had still not been found.

Leonard and his girlfriend have two children.

In January 2020, after the death of Kobe Bryant in a helicopter crash, Leonard revealed that he and Bryant shared the same pilot, Ara Zobayan, who also perished in the crash along with Bryant and seven others.

Leonard is known for his quiet and private demeanor. He rarely gives interviews and avoids questions about his private life.

Leonard has also said that he does not actively consume news media or use social media.
