We're not so sure how to feel about this...
It's a mystery wrapped in an enigma, wrapped in allegations of James Franco flirting with girls who aren't old enough to buy cigarettes — yikes!!!
As of right now, this is what we know to be true:
A 17-year-old Scotswoman named Lucy Clode is on holiday right now in NYC. Yesterday she spotted James and his Of Mice & Men co-star Chris O'Dowd outside of the Broadway production's stage door. Lucy took photographs of James and even selfies with him in the background.
Since these pictures have surfaced, we also know James has tweeted out a message to parents all across the world, asking them to keep their underage kids away from him!
Beyond that, we have a bunch of rumors of and supposed screenshots of Instagram conversations that took place between James and Lucy. Conversations that, if they are legit, show James engaging in potentially inappropriate discussions with a girl who isn't yet eighteen.
Wow! So, what can we FOR SURE deduce from of this? Only that this girl needs to charge her phone!! 33%?? Dayuuum gurl, we get nervous when it gets that low, LOLz!
In all seriousness, James hasn't specifically commented on the allegations yet, but he DID tweet this interesting message:
I'M NOT! I HOPE PARENTS KEEP THEIR TEENS AWAY FROM ME. Thank you http://t.co/I1d4n3yVe0

Unfortunately, the pic he linked to has already been removed!!!
Maybe it was just seXXXy pics of James and Seth Rogen barebacking a motorcycle!
