After some direct messaging, the messages turned to text messages once Franco asked for Clode’s phone number. The two carried on a short flirtation where Franco asked Clode if she had a boyfriend and she replied with “not if you’re around,” followed by smiley faces with hearts in their eyes.

3. Franco Posed in a Photo With Lucy’s Name on It
Clode and Franco texted back and forth. As Franco was trying to meet up with the young blonde, she wrote that she wanted to make sure it was really him. Franco sent her a photo of himself and later sent her another photo of himself holding a piece of paper with her name on it to prove his identity. Clode then released all the evidence.

4. Clode May Very Well Have a Boyfriend
Clode is a Scottish girl who flew to NYC and was staying with her mother as part of her 18th birthday present. And, it looks like Clode does in fact have a boyfriend. Her Twitter photos are of her and a boy together. That same boy is in her Instagram photos with the caption: Love Brodz.
If Clode does have a boyfriend, it’s no wonder Clode “rejected” Franco as she nicely put on her Twitter:
Of course, Clode is only 17 years old, almost 18 … But, come on … It’s James Franco.
Since this post was published, her Twitter has disappeared and her Instagram photos can no longer be viewed.

As a response to Clode releasing all the photos, texts, and messages from James Franco, Franco handled it like a pro, responding with humor as always. While the meme that went with Franco’s post cannot be viewed on his Instagram, we have found it in another person’s tweet below:
