The media’s obsession with the Obama girls is never-ending and this time Sasha’s dating life is front and center.
Sasha Obama was spotted walking through West Hollywood with her rumored boyfriend, Clifton Powell Jr.
The Daily Mail has reported that the youngest Obama daughter and Powell Jr. met at the University of Southern California in 2021.
Sasha reportedly transferred to the university after her time at the University of Michigan. They later began dating.
Powell Jr. is a 24-year-old commercial director who previously played college basketball at University of California Santa Barbara from 2016 to 2018.
As a commercial director, he has worked with brands like Madden, Nike and Peloton.
While Sasha’s dad has a pretty big claim to fame — he’s former president Barack Obama — Powell Jr. is also the son of a celebrity. His dad is actor Clifton Powell.
Powell has had roles in Ray (2004), Rush Hour (1998), Next Friday (2000), TV series like Hawaii Five-0 and more.
In April 2022, Michelle Obama let the world know that her daughters Malia and Sasha both have “boyfriends and real lives.”
“They loved the Jonas Brothers. Now they are bringing grown men home,” Obama said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“Before it was just, like, pop bands. Now they have boyfriends and real lives.”
Sasha is not the only Obama sister with a reported boyfriend.
23-year-old Malia Obama has been dating Rory Farquharson since 2017.
Back in December 2020, Barack shared that the family had been quarantining with Rory Farquharson, a Harvard student who Malia has been linked to since 2017.
“He’s British, wonderful young man,” the politician said on the Bill Simmons Podcast. “And he was sort of stuck because there was a whole visa thing and he had a job set up, so we took him in.”
He added, “I didn’t want to like him, but he’s a good kid.”
Both Sasha and Malia currently live in Los Angeles.
Sasha is still in school and Malia is working as a staff writer on a Donald Glover Amazon Prime project.
At some point we all just have to come to terms with the fact that our girls are all grown up.
