Remember way back in 2011 when a 16-year-old girl named Courtney Stodden received international attention when she married then 50-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson? That was pretty gross and vile, right? Well fast-forward a couple of years and it looks like another couple is getting attention for the massive gap in their ages.
Milind Soman, a 52-year-old Indian actor and former male model, is in the news for one reason and one reason only: his girlfriend’s age. And how old is his girlfriend Ankita Konwar? 18-years-old. Illegal? No. Creepy and disturbing? Yes.
Soman recently took it to his Instagram to share a photo of he and Konwar and that kick-started the chaos.
And even though people were grossed out by this, Soman had no problem sharing another selfie of he and his extremely young girlfriend, who he has been dating for four months.
Now check out some of the internet’s reactions:
This is insane though not your biological but she is of yours daughters age Mr milind. You are a role model for youths being a public figure

Although dating expert Tammy Shaklee, founder of match-making service He’s For Me, doesn’t think it’s a big deal. Here’s what she said.
“I do believe everyone deserves their special someone, whatever that looks like to them. I do know couples with a 30-year age difference who are genuinely in love. Love is love — as long as it’s a legal age, of course.”
But hey, when it comes down to it they are both of legal age so they can do what they want as long as they don’t hurt anyone. Who am I kidding, it’s still pretty damn bizarre.
