Reese Witherspoon’s Son, 20, Receives Criticism after Showing Off NYC Apartment
Reese Witherspoon’s son, Deacon Phillippe, has found himself at the center of online criticism after offering a glimpse into his upscale New York City apartment. The 20-year-old, currently studying music at New York University (NYU), shared his living space in the West Village with TikTok star Caleb Simpson, prompting a wave of reactions.Deacon, one of Witherspoon’s two children with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe (the other being Ava, 24), is pursuing his passion for music while navigating the bustling city life. Caleb Simpson, apparently encountering Deacon on the street, seized the opportunity for a tour of his abode.In response to the question of apartment costs, Deacon cryptically stated, “West Village prices, man,” before guiding Caleb through his residence, complete with an eye-catching spiral staircase at its center. Despite its aesthetic appeal, Deacon humorously admitted that the staircase becomes “a little sketchy” on late nights, posing a potential hazard for unsuspecting heads.The tour continued with introductions to Deacon’s roommates and a showcase of his vinyl wall in the living room. Moving into his surprisingly tidy bedroom, Deacon proudly displayed his collection of music equipment. Even the bathroom, despite a stray towel on the floor, appeared surprisingly well-maintained for a space shared by a group of young men.

However, the revelation of Deacon’s living situation didn’t escape the scrutiny of social media users. Given his famous parents, the assumption quickly surfaced that Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe foot the bill for their son’s luxurious lifestyle. As of this month, the average rent for a three-bedroom apartment in West Village is a staggering $6,995 per month, according to Zumper.Some TikTok users couldn’t help but highlight the financial privilege that comes with celebrity lineage. “Lol crying about West Village prices but both parents are famous actors,” quipped one observer. Another suggested a different line of inquiry, stating, “The question should have been, how much do your famous parents pay for rent in NY?”A recurring sentiment emerged, emphasizing the tendency of affluent offspring to downplay their family wealth. “Rich kids/nepo babies LOVE to avoid mentioning their extremely wealthy parents,” remarked one commenter. Despite the criticism, there were those who acknowledged Deacon’s down-to-earth demeanor, with one individual acknowledging, “Ya not just a student also a nepo baby!”Although Deacon didn’t overtly mention his famous mother in the video, viewers swiftly identified him as Witherspoon’s son, noting the striking resemblance between the young musician and the Big Little Lies star. “He looks just like his mom,” a commenter remarked, reinforcing the undeniable familial connection. As Deacon’s apartment tour circulates online, it serves as a focal point for discussions surrounding celebrity privilege and the financial dynamics of famous families.
