Michelle Obama reveals her daughters have boyfriends

Sasha Obama was pictured hanging out with her new boyfriend Clifton Powell Jr – who is the son of a Hollywood star.

The worlds of American politics and Hollywood glamor have collided as former President Barack Obama’s 20-year-old daughter, 60, and actor Ray Clifton Powell’s son, 66, grow closer.

Sasha, who is a student at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, is dating 24-year-old Clifton Jr – who is a former college basketball player and now works as a video producer.

The couple were spotted walking around Hollywood earlier in the week looking laid back and relaxed as they took in the local sights.

Sasha stepped out in a flowing purple skirt and a pink and purple crop top, while Clifton looked casual in a simple designer t-shirt and blue jeans.

The couple looked happy in each other’s company – with Sasha’s mother, former First Lady Michelle Obama, opening up about the budding romance during an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show this month – this.

Seeming alarmed at her own grown daughters – including Sasha and 23-year-old aspiring screenwriter Malia – Michelle told 64-year-old talk show villain Ellen: “They loved the Jonas Brothers. Now they’re bringing home grown men.

“Before, it was just, like, pop bands. Now they have boyfriends and real lives.

According to the Daily Mail, Sasha and Clifton Jr have been dating since August last year but only went public with their romance this week.

Video producer Clifton is the son of Hollywood star Clifton senior who starred in a string of hit films including Dead Presidents, Rush Hour and Next Friday.

While her mother is Kimberly Crooms, 58, who is said to be a successful businesswoman who runs an interior design company called anyUneed Designs.

Proud dad Clifton senior has often highlighted his son and his accomplishments via social media.

He flagged the fact that his son was a semi-pro basketball player, announcing via Facebook in 2016: “Check out Clifton Powell Jr., God is good he’s officially signed for a full four [basketball] scholarship at the University of California, Santa Barbra!”

However, Clifton Jr finally left school in Santa Barbara less than a year later and has since focused on his film career.

Meanwhile, Sasha grew up in the spotlight as the second daughter of Barack and Michelle Obama.

Barack has previously explained that the playlists he curates to spotlight emerging and established musical talent have been helped by his daughters.

He said in 2020: “My year-end playlists – these are the new cuts,” he said. “There, I admit that I consult Malia and Sasha throughout the year.

“I constantly listen to their music, sometimes on demand, and sometimes just because it’s what resonates in our house. So, you know, I pick up on certain trends.
