Joaquin Phoenix has officially joined the sugar daddy club. The 39-year-old actor was recently spotted with a mystery blonde in Rome, who was later revealed to be DJ Allie Teilz—she’s only 20 (some reports say she’s still 19).
The celebrity couple has reportedly been dating since May after meeting, not so surprisingly, at a Hollywood club where Teilz was spinning. Although they kept their May-December relationship quiet for the past six months, they didn’t seem to mind being out in public together, as Phoenix affectionately had his arms around his new sugar baby.
Teilz has admitted in the past that she often lied about her age to get ahead in the music business and that she often felt like an “old lady inside of a teenager.” We can’t help but wonder if Phoenix really knew how young she was when they first started dating. In any case, he clearly isn’t bothered by their two-decade age difference. Besides, they sort of seem like a good fit for one another. They’re both into music and like to dance to the beat of their own drum. We’ll have to wait and see if this celebrity couple holds out for the long haul.
What do you think: Would you date a man who was literally twice your age?
