Joaquin Phoenix’s New Girlfriend is Half His Age

Joaquin Phoenix Sugar Daddy with New GirlfriendJoaquin 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?
