(Newser) – Ah, it's heirs in love. Tiffany Trump is said to be dating the son of a wealthy family from Nigeria—one of the very countries her father reportedly compared to a makeshift toilet earlier this year, per the New York Post. His name is Michael Boulos and he's part of a family that started the multi-billion-dollar conglomerate SCOA Nigeria, which trades in equipment, retail, vehicles, and construction. The pair apparently met this summer in Mykonos, Greece, and kept their relationship quiet until now. "Tiffany is happy she has so far been able to keep things with Michael under the radar," a source tells the Post.

"But she introduced him to her family at Thanksgiving, and he comes across as a very intelligent young man from a great family," the source adds. "There was no mention of the president’s unfortunate comment about African nations." Raised in Lagos, London-based Boulos went to a top Nigerian international school and has a brother who raps and acts under the name Farastafari. Their family is originally from Lebanon. Tiffany is mum so far, but W Magazine notes she is following a private Instagram account under Boulos' name. A friend told Us Weekly that she had a "cordial" breakup with New York-based beau Ross Mechanic last year and was "taking law school seriously" at Georgetown University. (Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump is having a little email trouble.)
