He's not nearly famous enough to be bearding for someone as famous as her, and they're so rarely seen in public together, that I can't imagine what the point would be, except to increase his profile, but then what does she get out of it? Unless his agent has pictures of her agent at a donkey show, that doesn't track.

But even if I'm wrong and you're right the narrative we've gotten from the media has always had him as the clingier/more committed one.
