In 1993, Jerry Seinfeld picked up a high school student in a public park. He was 39 and she was 17. This is even stated as a fact in his personal life facts as if there was nothing wrong with it. If this doesn’t qualify has paedophilia, I don’t know what does.
What surprises me even more is that we didn’t really hear about this. It didn’t make the news. People didn’t blink. I was a teenager myself when this happened. I can’t imagine dating a man that’s almost 40 years old.
He and Shoshanna Lonstein dated for four years, through her college years, until she was 21 years old and officially an adult.
