He knows she's the one." Adding that the two won't be rushing to the altar soon though, the source says: "They'll take their time to do things the way they like." As for Jasmine, she's a student at the University of California Santa Barbara and soon to be step-mom to Paul's 9-year-old daughter, Meadow.
UPDATE: For those of you suggesting that I'm wrong and Paul's behavior with Jasmine was okay because it was a one-time thing, meet Aubrianna Atwell, an ex-girlfriend of Paul's with whom he began a relationship when he was twenty-eight and she was…yup, sixteen.
The common notion to survive in Hollywood could be: if you are blond, blue-eyed, good looking and doing some acting, you'll be in the clan.
These are the stereotypes that Paul Walker has, but not living on. Paul was born September 12, 1973 in Glendale, California and grew up in San Fernando Valley.
His friends and former costars have been responding via Twitter, and blogs and news anchors alike keep interrupting the news cycle to assure us that his daughter and his girlfriend are both extremely upset. But in reading one of the articles about Paul's girlfriend, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, I thought I came across a typo — it said she was twenty-three, which I could understand, given that we live in a world where thirty-eight year old Bradley Cooper is dating twenty-one year old Suki Waterhouse, but it also said that they'd been dating for seven years. Which means at the time of their meeting, she was sixteen and he was…thirty-three.
Now I don't want to insult his memory or anything, but how the hell did we miss that?
And that if they'd gotten married, her stepmom would've been only eight years older than her. I get that he's a good-looking guy and that his death is really tragic, but I'd love if we could be a little less casual with statements about their seventeen year age difference and the fact that they started dating when Jasmine was a teenager.
Particularly in light of Paul's sudden and tragic death in a car accident this past weekend, they aren't ready to hear anything about him that isn't a glowing review of his admirable accomplishments. In the days after someone dies, especially someone famous, the last thing people want to be reminded of is not only the fact that he was a human being who makes mistakes, but that they never knew him at all.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that statutory rape is still a crime.
I'm already anticipating the flood of comments calling me a terrible person for pointing this out, but I have some bad news for you guys — instead of it being a one-time situation, it's starting to seem like Paul Walker may actually have had a of dating underage girls.
I've been getting a lot of heat from commenters lately who are upset that I pointed out the widely-reported seventeen year age difference between Paul Walker and his longtime girlfriend Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell.
His death was undeniably tragic, and no one is bringing that into question, but in reading posts about the loved ones who survived him, I was coming across some disturbing information.
