New York City is treating Malia Obama well! One day after she sparked romance rumors while out with a mystery man, she hit the town again for a fun girls’ night. Is she officially a city girl!?
Malia Obama, 18, has certainly been taking advantage of her freedom in the Big Apple. Once again, the former First Daughter was photographed out and about on March 30, this time for dinner at B Bar & Grill with a gal pal. For the outing, Malia flaunted her long, lean legs in a little black dress, which she paired with cuffed gray socks and white sneakers. Of course, it’s still a little chilly in NYC, so she also added a maroon jacket to keep warm! CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PICS OF MALIA’S NIGHT OUT.
Noticeably missing from this night out was Rob Franklin, the 23-year-old Stanford graduate who Malia was photographed frolicking around the city with on March 29. It was immediately speculated that the pair might be romantically involved, but HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY confirm that the two are “just friends.” TMZ also reports that the relationship is “strictly platonic,” and that Malia and Rob met during a Men’s Fashion Week event last month.
Malia arrived in New York City at the end of January, just days after her father, Barack Obama, officially handed the presidency over to Donald Trump. She’s in town for an internship with the prestigious Weinstein Company, which she’ll complete before heading off to Harvard for college at the end of summer. Malia was only 10 years old when her dad became president, so she’s literally grown up right in front of our eyes — we’re so glad she’s finally finding time for herself in a new city!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Malia going out so much in NYC? Do you think she has a boyfriend?
