Phoenix and Teilz

A tipster tells THR that Phoenix's flame, Allie Tielz, wouldn't show ID at the Sons of Essex event on Dec. 10.

In real life, Her star Joaquin Phoenix's girlfriend is a DJ, not digital -- and she's two decades younger than the actor. Not that that's an issue -- or is it?

On Dec. 10, Phoenix, 39, and Allie Teilz, 19, were held up outside the afterparty for a New York screening of his Spike Jonze film when the bouncer at Sons of Essex, the bar where the event was held, insisted on checking guests' IDs. According to a source, Teilz never presented her ID to the doorman, and the couple had to wait for someone to come from inside the party and escort them past the bouncer and velvet rope. Phoenix's rep did not respond to a request for comment.
