Michelle and David Upchurch

WASHINGTON–Carol Felsenthal has an articleover at HuffPo about Michelle Obama’s former boy friends.

The subject comes up because, Felsenthal writes, “What made me think again of Michelle Robinson’s school romances is a story in the Telegraph (via the Enquirer magazine) in which the British paper’s New York correspondent writes about Michelle’s high school prom date. David Upchurch, divorced and a customer service representative who lives in Colorado, was a neighbor of the Robinsons and a family friend.

“Their relationship did not survive high school graduation in 1981 and Michelle’s next move–to Princeton University where she earned her Bachelor’s in sociology before heading to law school at Harvard.”

The First Lady’s office was asked via email about the photo on Friday and Sunday and did not reply.
