The Wanted singer Max George,34, has been left fuming after fans branded the 13-year age gap between him and girlfriend Maisie Smith, 21, "controversial".
Max, 34, took to Twitter to ask for an "explanation" from those who have criticised him.
"I’ve just read that apparently mine and Maisie’s age gap is ‘controversial’… a woman in her 20’s and a man in his 30’s… what the f**k are they implying?" he wrote. "I’d love an explanation please DM."
Many fans waded in to express their thoughts, with one writing: "As long as you’re both happy that’s all that matters ignore the haters and concentrate on yourself xxx."
"I can never understand why people are so bothered by what others do if it doesn't affect them!?" another said.
"You are both adults! People have little to worry about if this is 'controversial'!"
A third wrote: "As long as you and @maisie_smith_ are happy that's all that matters, other people's opinions are irrelevant just keep being yourselves because we see how much you love and care about each other and how happy you make each other."
It comes after Strictly Come Dancing star Maisie, 21, also hit back at critics of her and her boyfriend Max's 13-year age gap.
"People ask me: 'Do you notice it?' and I never have. We're so like-minded," she told Hello!
"I've got friends in their 30s and 40s. You connect with who you connect with."
Max added: "It never enters my mind. Maisie has already done so many things that I'm in awe of – I look up to her."
Max and Maisie's relationship has been going from strength to strength, with the pair moving in together after going official in August.
The pair recently jetted off to Portugal in October as they squashed rumours of them splitting.
Maisie and Max locked lips while sitting on an EasyJet plane, as they wrote on Instagram: "And we're off again!"
It's clear the pair are head over heels after Max recently gushed over his girlfriend Maisie, declaring she's the "hottest thing anywhere".
Alongside a snap of Maisie wearing a black and red dress, Max wrote: "Hottest thing ANYWHERE.. @maisiesmithofficial."
