16-year-old singer Lorde is reportedly dating an older man. In October Lorde (real name Ella Yelich-O’Connor) posted several photos of 24-year-old photographer James Lowe, her rumored boyfriend.

She posted the above photo of his birthday, and then later posted a photo with the caption “James is sick.”

Eight years difference isn’t very much when you’re an adult yourself, but it’s a bit much for a 16-year-old. It still hasn’t been confirmed that they’re actually dating, though. James has done photography work for Lorde, including the photo below, so maybe it’s just a working relationship:

        Oh, but when I turned 18 some months after suddenly it´s ok right? I had a great relationship with him, we were on the same level, and he still is a good friend of mine. I am now 23 btw.

      She is not from US. In New Zealand, 16 is legal. You can’t judge base on rules in US. Every country is different. They look like they love each other which is only thing that is matter.
