We already know Malia Obama is all grown up and going to college and everything, but is she dating now, too? It wouldn't be surprising; Malia is 18-years-old and there's nothing weird about a teenager — even one who used to live in the White House — having a boyfriend.

Speculation began after Malia was spotted strolling through SoHo with a handsome stranger earlier this week. There was a third female friend along for the trip, but most people couldn't get past the guy. Mystery Man is tall — Malia is 6'1", and he's at least a couple inches taller than her — and clearly pretty stylish, so it didn't take long for internet detectives to start labeling the two a couple.

According to TMZ though, Malia's mystery friend is just that — a friend. His name is Rob Franklin, and he and Malia reportedly met during a Men's Fashion Week event. TMZ's sources stress that there's no love connection here at all. Still, you can check out pics of Malia and Rob hanging out together here.
