Malia Obama Takes a SoHo Stroll With Handsome Mystery Guy

Malia Obama Takes a SoHo Stroll With Handsome Mystery Guy

After her father left the White House, Malia Obama headed to the Big Apple, reportedly to do an internship at the NY office of mega-producer Harvey Weinstein.

According to TMZ though, Malia's mystery friend is just that - a friend. He is a 23-year-old graduate of Stanford University in 2015 and now working for the website Artsy. Still, you can check out pics of Malia and Rob hanging out together here. From here, the two started dating.

However, his friends have made it clear that the daughter of the 44th president of the U.S. and Michelle Obama are just friends and their affiliation is strictly platonic. She was seen smiling, giggling and laughing while talking to Rob.

It didn't look romantic, however, as they also strolled along in SoHo with another girl. Franklin previously put in multi-media internships at BuzzFeed, NPR and, more locally, in Half Moon Bay. Malia, on the other hand, is in NYC for her spring internship at the Weinstein film company. In fact, although she is only 18 years old, she already has impressive experiences in the entertainment industry.

In any case, Malia and Franklin appear to have lots in common, notably professional interests in the arts and media. "Both Malia and Barack are 6'1", and this guy looks to have a good 3 inches on her. "There's only so much these guys can do", he said.
