Reality TV star and fashion mogul Kristin Cavallari is under no veil regarding the buzz around her relationship with 24-year-old TikToker Mark Estes. The engagement discourse with a younger boyfriend at 37 obliges her to return with equal fun and defiance.

Recently, Cavallari posted a video to her social media where she was doing a lip-sync dub with a very humorous soundbite: "I think my dating life is the least of anyone's concerns right now. It shows a woman’s voice asking, “What are you going to do about it? Are you going to arrest me? Are you going to give me a ticket?” Accompanied by a caption that reads, “When they’re all up in arms that I’m dating a 24 year old.

Andddd?” Cavallari’s posting is something of a playfully snarky answer to the naysayers.

Celebrity Age Gap

Cavallari is not in her own island in the case of suing the celebrities. The women in the showbiz who have done the same in their dating lives, after the desirable men and boys, Cher, Priyanka Chopra, Shakira, Miranda Kerr, and Gabrielle Union who have in time underwent the similar hiked scrutinizing compared to their male counterparts who do the same.

The topic of age disparities in relationships, especially where the woman is older, frequently sparks debate. Speaking very frankly three years older in a 2017 interview made by the Harper's Bazaar, Madonna shared her own experience of dating younger guys and how it makes the world feel.

"I have, therefore, constructed a very unconventional family. I have lovers that are three decades younger", Madonna stressed, placing special accents on her belief in freedom of expression, equality, and the right for women to embrace their gender without age frames.

Cavallari seemed to be living a fairytale until last year when she and former NFL star Jay Cutler—whom she shares three children with—announced their split. Since her foray into her new jewelry collection, she has also been casually dating.

Her recent engagement harks back to a broader discussion on the topic of societal norms, personal freedom, and the direction romantic relationships are turning to. End
