Report: 1st Kid, Boyfriend Split Up

November 25, 1998

NEW YORK (AP) _ Chelsea Clinton and her boyfriend have split up, the New York Post reported today.

Miss Clinton, a sophomore at Stanford University, broke up with Matthew Pierce about a week ago, the newspaper said, citing anonymous sources.

The students were first reported as an item in May. Pierce, a religious studies major and member of the Stanford swim team, attended church and had lunch with the president and Hillary Rodham Clinton during their campus visit last year.

The Post reported that the first daughter visited the university’s health center this week because of stress-related symptoms, saying she had just ended a long-term relationship and wasn’t adjusting well.

Stanford officials and Chelsea’s parents declined comment.

Pierce’s father had little to say about the split.

``They keep what happens in their relationship pretty much to themselves, so I’m not going to comment on it,″ Dale Pierce said.
