As the most loved President in American history, left the White House, his 18-year-old daughter Malia Obama headed to the New York City, reportedly for an internship at the New York office of mega-producer Harvey Weinstein.
It seems the Obama got a knack for the screen, no wonder as his dad would be perfect for any script thrown at him by the Hollywood especially in Drama and comedy genre yeah! his ‘dry humor.’ is unmatched. Malia will be joining the Harvard University in the fall after the gap year, the New York Post reported.
So while she’s spending some time in Manhattan, the young Obama has been spotted out and about around town, including with a tall, dark and handsome man who has been identified as Rob Franklin, a 2015 graduate of Stanford University, as per TMZ.
Franklin’s LinkedIn profile tells that he works in media for a New York startup. And has previously put in multi-media internships at BuzzFeed, NPR and in Half Moon Bay.
Franklin’s close friends told TMZ that he and Malia met at New York Fashion Week and admit that the two have been hanging out together since then. Paparazzi clicked them in SoHo Wednesday night, though it appears that one more friend was with them, TMZ reported.
However, his friends have made it clear that the daughter of the 44th president of the US and Michelle Obama are just friends and their affiliation is strictly platonic.
Regardless, Malia and Franklin have a common professional interest in the arts and media. Interestingly, Malia already has gained a fair amount of experience in the entertainment industry: she few days of the summer of 2015 assisting crew members on the set of HBO’s “Girls,” and consequently worked on a similar gig on the set of Halle Berry’s sci-fi drama “Extant” the previous year, as per Vanity Fair.
