TikTok star Addison Rae and A-list celeb Kourtney Kardashian are raising eyebrows across the net due to the unlikely friendship they’ve struck up during quarantine, causing some fans to express their concern on social media.

19-year-old Addison Rae is one of TikTok’s most popular content creators, boasting over 61 million followers on the viral video app — but it seems the starlet is gaining an even bigger celebrity status after making friends in high places.

Rae and 41-year-old Kourtney Kardashian collaborated together on an at-home glute workout over Zoom in May, sparking a fairly substantial friendship for the two ever since.

However, what once seemed like a simple collaboration has now become a point of contention for critics, who are taking issue with the duo’s camaraderie after they posed together in a swimming pool for what many felt was an overly-sensual photoshoot.

In fact, it seems like Rae hangs out with Kourtney and the Kardashian clan quite often, leading to a slew of backlash from concerned fans as to why an older woman is so close to a teenaged TikTok sensation.

While neither party spoke up about the issue for some time, it seems that Kourtney is well aware of the division surrounding her friendship with Rae, as evidenced by her snarky reply to one critic on Instagram in September — months after her initial collab with the TikToker.

“This friendship still weirds me tf out,” one user wrote of the situation.

“For real,” another replied. “She’s 41 and she’s hanging out with 19-year-olds in swimming pools.”

Luckily, Kourtney had the perfect response for the two critics, writing in a response to their convo: “Do you suggest a better place? I’m looking for ideas…”

According to Addison, her friendship with Kourtney began after she visited her home for a surprise meet-and-greet for her son (and avid Addison Rae fan), Mason, leading to the somewhat unconventional relationship they’ve sparked today.

Some are even jokingly calling Rae an “honorary Kardashian” — and although we’re not positive how legitimate that claim is, there’s no denying that some on the net just aren’t sure how to feel about her companionship with 41-year-old Kourtney.

Popular YouTuber Ethan Dolan has revealed on Instagram the details of his long-term relationship with girlfriend Kristina Alice, who he reconnected with this week after spending most of quarantine apart.

Ethan and his twin Grayson originally rose to popularity on the video app Vine in 2013, and have since gone on to produce content on their highly successful YouTube channel with over 11 million subscribers.

While they have many adoring fans, they haven’t been exempt from drama, such as earlier in July when they were forced to address a homophobic slur used when explaining the bullying they received in high school. In the same month, Ethan released a video detailing how comments online about his acne had severely affected his well-being in the past year.

Last week Ethan revealed his girlfriend to the world on YouTube with his brother Grayson. After spending months apart Kristine was finally able to catch a flight out to Los Angeles from Australia where she lives.

On Monday, Ethan stunned his fans by posting a series of close, romantic pictures to his Instagram alongside an emotional message, which read: “To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life.”

He explained that last December was “one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life” and attributed his success and ability to get through to her support.

Part 1/3. To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life. Our trip to Hawaii on this day last year, will be a memory I cherish for the rest of my life. I will be forever grateful for how caring you were during one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life while living in Australia together last December. I wouldn’t have been able to create my most proud project last January without your constant support. When we were forced to quarantine together and be attached at the hip for an additional 5 months longer than we planned… I wasn’t even mad😌 When you had to go back to Australia without knowing when we’d be able to see each other again it was NOT CHILL. Although we unintentionally spent 4 months on opposite sides of the globe with a 17 hour time difference… I still felt closer than ever to you. The hours on FaceTime everyday and random gift care packages were fun. You completely took over my camera roll because I couldn’t help but to screenshot your face every couple seconds. Getting a little part of you tattooed on my arm also contributed to you feeling closer to me I guess 😝 Thank you for making me happy everyday. Thank you for giving me something to always look forward to. Thank you for making me a better version of myself. I love you Photos by: @jordenkeith

It seems as though Ethan will have more to say in the next few days after he labeled the caption only part 1 of 3. For now, the YouTuber has confirmed to the world that not only is he in a far better place than he was last year, but that he is well and truly taken.
