21-year-old Natalie dates 50-year-old tennis coach.

Trending Now

The 21-year-old Natalie Noble has found love in an unconventional place—her 50-year-old tennis coach, Bobby Lindsey.

The relationship has sparked a wave of criticism, not just from the public but also within Natalie's family. The couple, both from Kentucky, USA, first met in 2015 when Bobby was Natalie's tennis coach and the father of one of her teammates.

Initially, their relationship was platonic, but as time passed, they couldn't hide their feelings for each other any longer. After going public on TikTok, they faced backlash for their significant age difference.

Comments ranged from "I thought this was a father and daughter" to "Oh God. He could be your father."

The criticism isn't limited to strangers on the internet.

Natalie's mother has accused Bobby of 'stealing her youth' and gave him an ultimatum to inform Natalie's father within a week, or she would.

Father's reaction

When her father found out, he was furious and insisted that Natalie should go to therapy to 'fix things,' a suggestion she has no plans to follow.

Despite the hurdles, the couple remains together. Natalie has made it clear to her family that they need to 'tolerate it' as the relationship makes her happy.

"I am 21 years old and fully capable of making my own decisions. We are just living our lives," Natalie retorted against her critics.
