Reese Witherspoon’s son shows off his New York City apartment
a surprise! Deacon, the son of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, is a New York University student who lives a more lavish life than most. On Tuesday, Caleb Simpson, an influencer known for taking his followers inside other people’s homes, posted a video of Phillip’s West Village apartment, which the 20-year-old shares with two roommates.
The tour shows a two-story apartment with a spiral staircase in the middle of the living room and an exposed brick wall lined with vinyl siding. But what really seemed to get people riled up was when Simpson asked his signature question – “How much do you pay for rent?” “West Village prices,” Philip replied. The average price of a studio in the neighborhood is about $4,000, while a three-bedroom apartment costs up to $7,000. “Um, this is Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe’s son. Please don’t try to pass him off as a regular college student,” one person commented. Another wrote: “Why don’t we just say ‘my famous parents Reese and Ryan pay the rent.'” Another wrote.
When Simpson — who has 7.8 million followers on TikTok — walks up to someone on the street, he usually asks: “How much do you pay for rent in New York?” and “Can I tour your apartment?” The account often features non-famous people, and their accommodations vary widely in cost and size. Some celebrities, like Scarlett Johansson and Eva Chen, have redirected Simpson to their desks to walk around. Others, like Christie Brinkley and Barbara Corcoran, seem to be cognizant of the fact that their homes will probably only be aspirational for the rest of us — and that’s a good thing. we love Architectural digest And MTV Family Tours partly because they don’t come with the pretense of normalcy. We know that super celebrities live very different lives than ours.
What’s annoying is when rich people try to pretend their lives are normal or achievable. Last week, DJ Brendan Valles took Simpson on a tour of the home he shares with his wife, Seagram heiress Hannah Bronfman. When asked how much they pay monthly, Valles said: $4,300. But there was no mention of the fact that apartments of this size in midtown Manhattan typically cost millions of dollars, and that’s before renovations take place.
Of course, the Nebo kids and other celebrities live in apartments that most of us can only admire from Zillow. But it would hurt less if they at least stuck to it.
