Ok if the flare's light took 2.1 billions years to reach earth then the star has to be AT LEAST 2.1 billion years old right? THe story reports the star is only a billion years old.....

I believe what the story said was that the star lived for about a billion years before being destroyed 2 billion years ago. Like saying Lincoln live for 50 years before being shot 150 years ago.
