The photos come after she was pictured with a mystery man in New York City on March 29. The pictures sparked speculation about her romantic life.

TMZ identified the mystery man as  23-year-old Rob Franklin. He is a 2015 graduate of Stanford University, who is currently employed at Artsy, an online art resource.

Obama and Franklin, who is from Atlanta, Georgia, reportedly met at a Men's Fashion Week event in February, and have been hanging out since. The relationship is reportedly strictly platonic.

The former first daughter is currently interning at Weinstein film company. She took a year off after graduating high school, and will be attending Harvard University in the fall, The New York Times reported.

“The President and Mrs. Obama announced today that their daughter Malia will attend Harvard University in the fall of 2017 as a member of the Class of 2021," the White House previously said in a statement. "Malia will take a gap year before beginning school."

Former President Barack Obama said in November that his daughters Malia and Sasha had already started dating. He said he was "pretty relaxed" about the situation because his daughters have Secret Service protection.

"They've had Secret Service," Obama joked. "There's only so much these guys can do."
