If you watched this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, you may have noticed that Anthony Kiedis, front man of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, looked pretty fit for a man in his 50s. We may know how he’s managed to look so good over the years—the 51-year-old rocker is dating a much younger woman who’s probably been keeping him on his toes.
Anthony Kiedis, who has been linked to notable A-list celebrities like Madonna and Demi Moore, is now dating 20-year-old Australian model, Helena Vestergaard. The celebrity couple began dating after first meeting back in 2012 and they’re reportedly already living together in L.A. Believe it or not, the young woman says she doesn’t even notice their 31-year age difference because, well, she’s in love. “I’m not an ageist. You can’t help who you fall in love with,” Helena Vestergaard recently said in an interview when asked about the large age difference in her May-December relationship. “We’re both happy and that’s good.”
Vestergaard has gained more than just a happy May-December relationship out of dating Anthony Kiedis. She also credits her famous sugar daddy for helping her start her modeling career, because her first break came after meeting a photographer who was touring with the Red Hot Chili Peppers in Melbourne at the time. The meeting landed her a shoot for a Japanese issue of Vogue, and as Helena Vestergaard says, “It all started from there!”
Anthony Kiedis has a history of dating much younger women, so this new May-December relationship and the 31-year age difference shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. In fact, Kiedis used to date model Heather Christie, who is 23 years younger than him, and the former celebrity couple actually have a six-year-old son together. That means Christie was only 22 when she gave birth, while he was 45. The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ song “She’s Only 18” is said to be inspired by Christie.
What do you think: Would you ever date a man who was more than 30 years older than you?
