August 4, 2022: Malia Obama was photographed hanging out with music producer Dawit Eklund in Los Angeles.
In photos obtained by The Daily Mail, they were captured visiting the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Thursday.
The pair were certainly not seen kissing, but they embraced, and in one of those shots, Eklund’s hand rested on Malia’s waist as he caressed the back of her head.
Malia was dressed casually in a white crop top and baggy green pants, while her date wore a halter top and green shorts with a Bob Marley photo on the left leg.
Furthermore, the Daily Mail also counted this as his third public outing. They were photographed going to lunch together on July 26 and then again during a casual walk together on August 2.
Malia last dated Rory Farquharson in 2012. He was her classmate at Harvard.
While she recently spent time with her younger sister, Malia’s boyfriend Clifton Powell Jr. was joined by her mom Michelle.
But what about Dawit? Did Michelle approve of it for her other daughter, too? We still have to find out.
