The Material Mom better hope her kids have better morals than her! Madonna’s oldest daughter Lourdes Leon is reportedly dating a young actor from “Homeland.”
Via Page Six reports:
Madonna’s 16-year-old daughter, Lourdes Leon, has been dating “Homeland” star Timothée Chalamet, who played the vice president’s son Finn Walden on the hit “Showtime” series, Page Six can exclusively reveal.
The pair met at La Guardia High School of Music & Art & Performing Arts on the Upper West Side, where Timothée’s in the class of 2013. Lourdes, who is reportedly studying drama, graduates next year from the school, which was the inspiration for the 1980 film “Fame.”
A source told us, “It’s common knowledge at the school that the pair are dating.” When contacted about the teenage romance, a spokeswoman for Madonna declined to comment. Reps for Timothée didn’t get back to us last night.
New York Magazine recently featured Lourdes and Timothée, along with other students at the school, in its “Reasons To Love New York” issue, under, “Because La Guardia High School Is Still Churning Out Talent.”
Timothée also appeared in USA Network’s “Royal Pains,” but is best known for playing the son of Vice President Walden on “Homeland” who accidentally kills a pedestrian during a joy ride around Washington, DC, with Sgt. Nicholas Brody’s daughter Dana, played by Morgan Saylor.
Lourdes is Madonna’s daughter with actor and personal trainer Carlos Leon, who, incidentally, is marrying his Danish girlfriend Bettina Holtz this summer.
Leon, who starred in the 2011 movie “Immigration Tango,” is famously protective over Lourdes. He told People at the time of the film’s release, “I got the best thing out of that relationship, and that’s my daughter. My daughter is everything to me.”
He said Lourdes, then 14, wasn’t dating yet, but he knew it was coming: “I’m dreading it . . . because she’s my little girl. I want her to stay young forever. I’m already overprotective, so when the time comes, I will be ready to have a talk with the guy she brings through the door. He better be ready, because I’ll give him the rundown!”
Hopefully Timothée will be on better behavior in real life than he is on TV, cuz he was out there murking folks with cars on “Homeland”. Lourdes hasn’t gotten into too much trouble as of yet though so she probably has learned from watching her Mom what not to do when it comes to men.
