Did You Know This Famous Rock Star Is Dating a Model Who’s Less Than Half His Age?

Sugar Daddy Dating a Model Less Than Half His AgeIf 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?
