The daughters of President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, Sasha and Malia were constantly in the public eye due to their father’s position. The siblings did not not get to experience a normal upbringing. Recently, things started to change as Michelle revealed both her daughters now have boyfriends.

The Daily Mail reports that the 20-year-old daughter of former President Barack Obama is dating the 24-year-old son of “Ray” actor Clifton Powell. Sasha and Clifton Powell Jr reportedly began seeing each other after she moved to Los Angeles to study at the University of Southern California.

The former first daughter transferred to USC last fall from the University of Michigan, where she had been a student for two years. The Daily Mail obtained photos of Sasha and her 6-foot-5 rumored beau looking loved-up as they took a walk together earlier this week.

Sasha was dressed casually in a peasant skirt, a crop top and Birkenstock clogs, while Powell Jr. wore jeans, a T-shirt and a backward baseball hat. Powell Jr., who is said to go by the nicknames Cliff and CP3, grew up in the ritzy California community of Ladera Heights and attended Village Christian High School in the San Fernando Valley.


After graduating high school, Powell Jr. was awarded a four-year basketball scholarship to the University of California, Santa Barbara, but he transferred out less than a year later to focus on his passion for film. According to his website’s bio, he  now works as a “writer/director,” and has created content for big companies including Nike and Peloton.

Michelle’s other daughter, Malia has been dating her boyfriend, Rory Farquharson. The couple met at Harvard in 2017 and have been dating since then. Meanwhile, you can check out the pictures obtained by DailyMail of Sasha and Clifton Jr. below.
