[Blind Gossip] Both of these young adults hail from celebrity households. At least one of the parents was an Academy Award nominee/winner in the past.
Of course, the kids have professions that make them celebrities, too.
The parents are currently focused on bolstering their children’s careers. In fact, they are discussing coupling them up for marketing reasons!
[The parents of The Boy] have been trying to get [the parents of The Girl] to agree to a “relationship” between the two of them. They think it would be great for both their careers. [The parents of The Girl] are resisting. They said it’s fine for the kids to be casual friends and to benefit from the publicity that way, but they don’t think it’s a good idea to stage them as a couple.
One point of resistance?
They tried to bring up [The Girl] in a “normal” environment. They think that [The Boy] is kind of a weirdo and had a strange upbringing. They don’t want their daughter spending a lot of time with him. Photo ops, yes. Deep friendship/dating, no! They have to be very polite about it, though, so for right now they are just saying it’s an age thing (that she’s too young to do a P.R. relationship) and that she is very busy with work.
Since they can all at least agree that publicity is a good thing, they are trying to set up a photo op in the next week or so. Nothing romantic. Yet.
