Malia Obama's boyfriend Rory Farquharson quarantined with the former first family, Barack reveals

MALIA Obama's boyfriend Rory Farquharson quarantined with the former first family, Barack revealed on Wednesday.

The boyfriend of the former president's eldest daughter Malia, 22, spent the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic with the Obamas.



Barack – speaking on a Wednesday episode of "The Bill Simmons Podcast" – revealed his family allowed Malia's British boyfriend Farquharson to stay with them.

He said: "There was this whole visa thing, he had a job set up, and so we took him in.

“And I didn’t want to like him, but he’s a good kid.”

Farquharson is the son of chief executive of Insight Investment Management Limited Charles.

The 44th president also revealed Malia's boyfriend had a big appetite.

Barack jokingly said his grocery bill "went up about 30 percent" when Farquharson stayed at his residence.

He told Simmons: "The only thing you discover, this is not a surprise to you Bill because you've got a son, young men eat. It's weird to watch them consume food. And my grocery bill went up about 30 percent," he said with a laugh.

The former president recalled having his children back in the house during the pandemic as a "blessing."

Barack said: "They're just back and they love you again and they wanna spend time with you again.

"I think a lot of families went through that first month where we were playing games every night, doing arts and crafts projects and then – slowly, they started to get a little bored with us."

Farquharson was linked to Malia after footage emerged of them kissing in November 2017.


In the video, filmed at a Harvard v Yale American football game, Malia is seen smoking a cigarette and smiling before putting her arms around Rory and going in for a kiss.

In January 2018, they were again spotted together, this time on a casual shopping trip in New York where they were photographed smiling, chatting and hugging.

Earlier this year, Malia and her sister Sasha Obama talked about the overwhelming pride they have for their mom in their first ever interview.

The girls spoke out in 'Becoming' the new Netflix documentary about their mother and former first lady Michelle Obama.

In October, Sasha was filmed rapping and dancing to hip hop duo City Girls in a series of TikTok videos.
