Unlike her mother Madonna, 16-year-old Lourdes Leon apparently prefers men her own age.
A source confirmed to US Weekly that Leon is now dating “Homeland” actor Timothee Chalamet, 17.
“‘Dating’ is a loose term for it, but yes, they are teenagers being teenagers so I guess you can call it that,” the source told the mag. “It has not been going on for very long at all.”
On the hit Showtime drama, Chalamet starred as the entitled Finn Walden, the son of Vice President William Walden, who was played by Jamey Sheridan.
“Lola certainly likes her boys just like her mother!” the source said of Leon, who goes by Lola. “I’m not sure he’s the only boy in her life.”
Madonna, 54, had Leon with boyfriend Carlos Leon, 46, in the 1990s, years before she married filmmaker and ex-husband Guy Ritchie, 44.
The young celebrities, who both attend LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts on the upper
West Side, were recently mentioned in New York Magazine’s “Reasons to love New York” article for their school.
LaGuardia is known to nurture many of Hollywood and Broadway’s rising stars and is widely noted for inspiring the musical “Fame.”
