Where does the time go? It seems like only yesterday that Madonna‘s daughter, Lourdes Leon, was toddling behind her mom down the streets of New York. Now, according to the NY Post, the 16-year-old has a boyfriend.
Her boyfriend is reportedly Timothée Chalamet, who is known to television audiences as the vice president’s son Finn Walden on Showtime’s Homeland. The two teens are both students at La Guardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
The creative secondary school is better known as “The Fame School,” which inspired the 1980 hit movie. Leon is a junior there, while the Showtime star graduates in the spring.
Sources told Page Six, “It’s common knowledge at the school that the pair are dating.”
Reps for Madonna refused to comment, most likely to protect her daughter’s privacy at such a delicate age.
Speculation is running rampant as “sources” step up to offer an inside look at the teen’s love life.
An insider reported to US Weekly, “Lola is boy crazy…. She loves to talk about guys! She flirts endlessly.”
Another source offers, “Lola certainly likes her boys, just like her mother! I’m not sure he’s the only boy in her life.”
Does it really matter what Madonna’s little doppelgänger is doing in her private life? The girl is a high school student. Perhaps she deserves a little dignity and a little privacy, even though she has a famous mom.
Leon is the daughter of Madonna and the pop star and personal trainer Carlos Leon. They dated in the late 1990s.
Lourdes’ dad may not love the news of his daughter’s dating, though, since he’s very protective of his little girl.
He told People back in 2011, “I want her to stay young forever. I’m already overprotective, so when the time comes, I will be ready to have a talk with the guy she brings through the door. He better be ready, because I’ll give him the rundown!”
