What to Know About Tiffany Trump's Boyfriend Michael Boulos, Who Reportedly Grew Up in a Country the President Mocked
Boulos and the 25-year-old youngest daughter of President Donald Trump appear to have wealthy families and prominent parents in common, according to Page Six.
The outlet reports that Boulos’s family is Lebanese and he grew up in Lagos, Nigeria — in a part of the world the president reportedly mocked as a “s—hole” while discussing immigration last year. (He quickly denied these accounts but said he had used “tough language.” Nigeria at the time said that he did use such a label, it was “deeply hurtful, offensive and unacceptable,” Reuters reported.)
Tiffany, however, isn’t fazed by the optics of her coupling, given her dad’s immigration politics. “[She’s] not keeping her finger on the pulse of that BS,” a source recently told PEOPLE.
Here are fives more things to know about Boulos.
1. He and Tiffany Met at Lindsay Lohan‘s Club
It premiered earlier this week.
Speaking with PEOPLE at the premiere party, Lohan downplayed any possible matchmaking role.
“I wasn’t there when they met,” she said.
“I know him … and I know her … but I don’t know what happened,” Lohan explained.
She said that she was only recently introduced to Boulos through mutual friends and described her relationship with Tiffany as “friendly.”
2. Before White House Outing, the Couple Attended New York Fashion Week
While Page Six reported in the fall that Boulos and Tiffany were trying to keep things under wraps, they were spotted sitting next to each other at a Taoray Wang show on Sept. 8.
“Tiffany is happy she has so far been able to keep things with Michael under the radar,” a source told Page Six in November.
