I’m With You: Beth Jeans Houghton

Anthony Kiedis & Beth Jeans Houghton

In the last few weeks, several lots of photos have come out of Anthony Kiedis photographed with English singer songwriter Beth Jeans Houghton leading to speculation that the two are actually dating. Nothing has actually been confirmed publically by Anthony on this and in fact, a lot of recent interviews for the ‘I’m With You’ publicity event saw him saying he was struggling to find true love, but he and Ms. Houghton appear to be an item.

The couple have never actually been photographed ‘together together’ (as in holding hands, kissing, etc.)  but the two are frequently photographed together and Beth seems to be accompanying the singer on much of the ‘I’m With You’ tour. Her Twitter account shows that she has been in the exact same location on the same days as most of the ‘I’m With You’  warm up’ RHCP concerts and she was also present at the RHCP concert at Venice Beach with Anthony Kiedis when they filmed the video for ‘The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie.’

More recently, she posted that people should watch the Jonothan [sic; Jonathan] Ross show on the date that Anthony and RHCP appeared on the show.

Beth Jeans Houghton does not appear to have been with AK/RHCP at their recent gigs in South America such as Rock in Rio (one person claimed to have seen her on the beach there but this is unconfirmed in any other source) but she has been present at a number (if not all) of the recent European gigs including the Paris Bercy dates in October.*

In a recent interview for MOJO magazine (the magazine is dated December 2011 but hit the shelves at the end of October), Anthony Kiedis mentions Beth Jeans Houghton and admits to having a massive crush on her:

Tell us something that you’ve never told an interviewer before.

I have a huge crush on [little known but MOJO-approved British singer-songwriter] Beth Jeans Houghton. I think she’s a genius. How did I find out about her? I’ve got my ear to the street.

Beth at Bercy

*I was at Bercy for the first gig on the 18th October and can confirm she was on the side of the stage for the whole concert. Unfortunately, I left my camera at home after the venue website said cameras were confiscated and just smuggled in a cheap disposable camera; I have photos of Beth at the event but they are really poor quality (see below). For those interested in details: Beth was on the side of the stage for the entire show although she appeared unimpressed by the performance-; she hardly moved except to chew her fingers (her first two fingers were hooked over her mouth and she chewed on them more-or-less continously) and she only sang along & ‘danced’ to one song- it was one of the big RHCP hits; I think it was Californication. She did take a few photos and towards the end walked to the front of stage with her camera & seemed to take some photos of him.  At the end of the show, she was waiting for AK to leave the stage and walked off alongside him; AK was carrying Everly Bear at the time, but again there was no indication as to any romantic involvement between the two other than they were walking alongside each other.

Beth on AK in Interviews:

Beth interviewed for The Guardian, November, 2012:

In truth, Houghton’s real problem with the press probably stems from rumours that she’s dating Anthony Kiedis, 49-year-old frontman of theRed Hot Chili Peppers. The pair were recently papped outside Mayfair restaurant Scott’s and various locations in LA, and in the latest issue ofMojo magazine Kiedis says: “I have a huge crush on Beth Jeans Houghton.”

It’s clearly on her mind, as she’s almost relieved to hear the question. “I thought you might ask,” she sighs. Well, are you? “No comment.” Once that’s out of the way, Houghton becomes charm itself.

Beth interviewed for The Stool Pigeon, January 18th, 2012:

Houghton seems serious about becoming an LA musician and has recently been spending time with a veteran of the city. She’s been photographed with 49-year-old Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, after he admitted he had a crush on Houghton in the pages of Mojo. Photos of the pair have appeared on slebsite after slebsite — leaving a swanky Mayfair restaurant here, a European hotel there — and tongues have been wagging ever since.

“The whole thing is weird,” she says, while keeping a tight lip on the subject. “I’ve got such a small group of friends and I tend to keep myself to myself.” The cameramen hiding in bushes have taken some getting used to. “It is not a comfortable situation. It’s kind of invasive and strange, and something that has never been what I have wanted to be about. But I tend not to think about things that make me feel uncomfortable.” The Stool Pigeon

“Now this polite, practical Newcastle girl is about as far as you can possibly get from OXO and the North-east. She’s sitting at the rough-hewn dining table in the Malibu mansion of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ singer Anthony Kiedis, who kisses her lightly as he passes her a straw to sip through so she doesn’t muss the lipstick for her photo shoot. Did Kiedis’ confession of a “huge crush” on Houghton in a recent MOJO have anything to do with this
relationship? “No influences at all, I’m afraid!,” she says.

Houghton arrived just days ago , and her battered suitcase with ‘BJH’ painted-on is half open on the floor, but she’s already been photographed at Kiedis’ side at her first-ever Lakers game…”

About Beth Jeans Houghton

According to her Wikipedia page Beth Jeans Houghton was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and is currently signed to Mute records. She has very recently released an album called Dodecahedron (the title track sounds very much like ’Florence And the Machine’ although I can’t comment on the rest as it’s the only track I’ve heard so far.)

UPDATE February 2012

Rumours are circulating that Beth and Anthony may no longer be dating as they haven’t been photographed together since mid-January and Anthony was seen walking along with another woman around the 18th February:

Plus a new interview has just come out that suggests Anthony isn’t in a serious relationship even if he is still dating Beth:

Ten years ago, I would have said I’d be in a relationship for a long period of time, but as I sit here today, I wonder if maybe I will go the way of my father. Four years into the life of my son, I realize I’m so in love with him and he’s so in love with me that if I don’t find that lifelong partner out there, it’s O.K. I think I’m still figuring out how to be a little less selfish. I’m probably not long-term-relationship material for now.  Full interview here

    Pshh, she’s only a year older than me! There is hope yet ;P

  2. E says:

    I can’t really see any reason why he would be hanging around with someone as young as her unless they were going out. I bet they are.

  3. agustina says:

    I hope that they are not couple she is too ugly for … anthony deserves to be with someone better at his side. he needs a girl beautiful intelligent and very funny as i ..

  4. Paula says:

    She aint ugly at all… she is pretty, talented, stylish and a lovely person so I can see why the old man has a thing for her.

  5. kathly mcallister says:

    really might want to try somoneone more his age ??

  6. kathly mcallister says:

  7. MMonroe says:

    I was at the gig in Paris at La Cigale. She was on the side of the stage. And I can confirm that they date together as AK went several times to kiss her between songs. I had no picture of that because of course cameras were not allowed.

  8. mandy m says:

    He cant serious about this girl Beth…he was my baby sister in LA only a few wks ago…she told me and there were pictures taken of them by paparazzi ……and yeah i say baby sister..im only 24 myself

  9. texas says:

    do you blame the dude for dating many women at once!…He is SO F#@#*&^ HOTTT!!!! and a ROCK GOD!!!!!!!!!

  10. tattoolive says:

    I guess by trying to date a rock star like AK thats one way to try and get your music heard!

  11. bengalpuss says:

    I think she’s ugly, Ak can have himself a pretty girl, so why he’s with this ugly bitch is beyond me. Anthony you can have a pretty girl on your arm not a dog, sort your head out!

  12. Kate says:

    well if he wants to get married he needs to start looking for women a little older then 20. Girls at that age are way to immature and don’t want to be tied down with a child thats not there own. These girls are only happy to be seen in public with him to boost there image. I noticed in the last few months that He is not happy with any kind for media attention he looks angry in most photos. Turning 50 doesn’t seem to be agreeing with him.

  13. Ariel says:

    Tell Anthony I’m available now.I heard he loved me lots(when I performed in a band called Double D nose)years ago.I wasn’t available then,Now I am-
