  • Malia Obama is dating Rory Farquharson, the British son of an investment manager, the Daily Mail reported.

The 19-year-old daughter of former US President Barack Obama, Malia Obama, is reportedly dating the son of a British investment manager.

After TMZ published a video of Malia Obama kissing a man during the Harvard-Yale football game over the weekend, the Daily Mail identified him as Rory Farquharson, who was head boy at a £35,000-a-year ($US47,000-a-year) private school in England.

Farquharson, 19, began his studies at Harvard last year, according to Rugby School, an English private school he attended, where a term's education costs up to £11,584.

Here's Farquharson pictured in June:

He was a golf and rugby player and was selected as "head of school" for the 2015-16 year. A school friend told the Daily Mail that he was "popular" and "quite a catch."

Farquharson's CV says he spent a summer as an intern with the Centre for Democracy and Peace Building in Northern Ireland, appeared in a rugby video played at the World Cup opening ceremony in 2015 (which Prince Harry also appeared in), and was a member of the Rugby School's chemistry club, the Blue Bunsen Society.

The Telegraph reported that Farquharson's Twitter account, which has now been deleted, suggested he had an interest in investment just like his 57-year-old father, Charles, the CEO of the London-based Insight Investment Management Limited. His mother, Catherine, 58, is also a qualified accountant.

The family live in a six-bed detached home in Woodbridge, Suffolk, worth £1.6 million, The Telegraph reported.

Farquharson had also appeared to criticise US President Donald Trump on Twitter, according to The Telegraph. The Daily Mail reported, however, that Farquharson followed the current president on Twitter but did not follow Barack Obama.
