Lily-Rose Depp and her boyfriend
Lily-Rose Depp is currently 16 years old. She turns 17 in a couple of months. The other day she flew with her mother, brother, and rumoured boyfriend to Paris. Yesterday she was photographed with him over lunch with her aunt. He’s a model. His name is Ashley “Ash” Stymest. He’s 24 years old.
Maybe they’re just friends?
Let’s explore the situation if they’re more than just friends.
So… in my day, a 24 year old dating a 16 year old, on top of the squicky morality/legality of the situation, would be some lame ass sh-t, Matthew McConaughey as David Wooderson. Like the point of high school is to get the f-ck out of high school, you know?
But that was a long time ago. Maybe things have changed. Maybe you’re not a loser if you’re in your 20s and still dipping back into teen life. Or, maybe, Hollywood is perpetual high school forever anyway. Maybe fame is eternal teen drama. And maybe, in that environment, age becomes less of a divide. Maybe a famous 16 year old daughter of two megastars is ageless?
