She had her keys and purse in hand, ready to make a purchase. Her friend was also dressed for the chilly weather in a sweatshirt and baggy jeans. He added another layer of warmth with a tan vest.

Malia didn’t appear to be buying anything at the convenience store, but her friend grabbed a pack of ZYN nicotine pouches. She was seen doing a little jump in the air as she walked beside him.

It is unclear where they were, but the former first daughter has been living in Brentwood, an affluent neighborhood on the city’s west side.

Malia’s visit comes days after a huge mob ransacked a 7-Eleven near Figueroa Street and El Segundo Boulevard after a street takeover at the intersection.

Surveillance footage from August 15 showed the group of people looting and vandalizing the store. The mob could be seen running across the shop grabbing drinks, cigarettes, lottery tickets, bags of chips and other items.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the suspects also began throwing objects at them, with about 100 people involved in the chaos.

Malia’s latest outing comes a few weeks after DailyMail.com exclusively revealed the identity of her new boyfriend, music producer Dawit Eklund.

Dawit – who also goes by David, the anglicized version of his name – is the son of retired Secretary of State Jon Eklund, 72, who worked at several US embassies in Africa, and his Ethiopian wife, Yeshi, 66.

He is the co-founder of Washington, DC-based record label 1432 R, which specializes in Ethiopian music. Perhaps, not surprisingly, he is also a registered Democrat.

A Washington Post article about the label in 2016 said: ‘Their music seamlessly brings together house music grooves, the strains of British garage, a restless electronic vibe and – perhaps most notably – Ethiopian folk music.’

‘Ethiopian music is super distinct. There are only four or five musical scales they play in; everyone has their own opinion and attitude and vibe,’ he told the magazine.

A separate post called him ‘one of Washington’s most exciting dance music producers’ and added: ‘It’s not because he splices styles from around the world, it’s because he spent much of his young life learning how to communicate with different kinds of people. ‘

One of four children, Dawit was educated at the International Community School in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, before attending George Washington University, where he studied international development in Africa.

His father, Jon, was heavily involved in helping the refugee crisis caused by the war in Sudan in the early 2000s, when hundreds of thousands fled to Ethiopia to escape the fighting.

Dawit’s mother, Yeshi, comes from a family of business people in Ethiopia. His sister Sara Eklund was featured in a 2019 Vogue article for introducing menstrual cups to Ethiopia

Since his retirement, John and Yeshi have settled in Abidjan, the capital of the West African nation of Côte d’Ivoire, although they also have a house in Chantilly, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, DC
