A few weeks after being spotted together at Kendall Jenner’s Halloween party, Scott Disick and Amelia Hamlin - the daughter of actress Lisa Rinna - have again sparked rumours about the pair being in a relationship.

The pair were seen together on a date earlier this week, with an afternoon spent at Malibu beach, where Scott had his arm around Hamlin. But with the relationship rumours have also come fierce discussion about their 18-year age gap. Disick, 37, and 19-year-old Hamlin’s new romance has been met with strong opinions on social media.

On Twitter, some fans were keen to express their disapproval of the relationship pointing to the fact that Hamlin is a teenager and not yet old enough to consume alcohol.

Disick was previously dating Sofia Richie, daughter of the singer Lionel Richie. With a 15-year age gap, they first got together when Richie was eighteen. When Disick was 33, he also reportedly dated then-19-year-old Bella Thorne. Some were highly disturbed by the fact Disick has prior form for dating girls younger than him.

But, there was also some support for the couple who technically aren’t doing anything illegal.

While it may not sit right with some, ultimately there’s not a lot we can do about it.
