Parents around the world are in an uproar after an 8-year-old social media star revealed she is dating a 13-year-old fellow influencer.

The scandal has many parents unfollowing their children from the social media influencers' accounts.

Under California law it is legal for an adult to have consensual sex with a minor if the offender is within 10 years of the age of the child.

Milana Makhanets and her beau, Pasha Pai, are both minors who live in Russia and the Ukraine.

Milana has over half a million followers on Instagram and almost 7 million followers on the video-sharing mobile app Likee, a Tik-Tok-style platform popular with kids in Russia and Ukraine.

Pasha Pai has over 53,000 followers on Instagram, which features a photo of him posing with his girlfriend and her mother, Darya Makhanets, who runs Milana's social media accounts.

In another photo, he wears what appears to be a cheerleading outfit complete with a black pleated miniskirt.
 

The intimate photos of the children together are disturbing for American parents who aren't used to such open sexuality among underage children.

In one now-deleted post, Pasha shared a photo of the two shackled together while the little girl brushes her teeth in her underwear. In another post, the two appear to be in bed together.

Other inappropriate photos show the pair kissing, the girl sitting on the teenager's lap wearing thigh high boots, and the two looking at a phone in bed.

Those photos have since been deleted following the uproar on social media.
 

A report from RT noted that a lawyer named Anna Malyar, claimed that Milana's "mother made a seductive woman out of an eight-year-old girl for perverts."

Ukrainian journalists and politicians are among those calling for the police to investigate.

After fierce backlash on social media, the girl's progressive mother wrote on her personal account "this is their life, and they will figure it out on their own."

Social media influencer James Charles sparked a furious backlash on Instagram and YouTube after he shared a photo of himself pretending to be pregnant to support a friend, Laura Mellado, who is pregnant.

Charles, a female-identified makeup artist, titled his video "24 Hours Being PREGNANT!!"

He wrote in the caption: "I'm trying something I'll never get to experience, being pregnant! My best friend Laura is pregnant with her second baby so she challenged me to be pregnant for 24 hours to see if I was strong enough to go through what she does!"

His 24 ours of "pregnancy" included being hooked up to a device that simulates pregnancy contractions.

Many called his antics "insensitive" after he wore a fake belly prosthetic and appeared before a backdrop of flowers, similar to a photo shoot by Beyonce.

Charles added a disclaimer to his video: "This video is not being made in any way, shape, or form to make fun of, to make light of pregnancies and the sensitivities and the complications that come around it."

Charles, who has 52 million followers across 2 platforms, continued:

"It's obviously such a beautiful, beautiful thing that women go through with their bodies and it takes a whole lot of strength as well. I know firsthand from watching Laura do it twice now. This is just a lighthearted video to see if I can last for 24 hours experiencing some of the ‘challenges’ that are even possible for me to actually experience today."

One follower wrote: "I love you James. But be ready to expect backlash. This wasn't a good move. It's very insensitive & I'm generally not a sensitive person. Sorry bud. This ain't right."

Another wrote: "You have gone off the deep end."

And a third wrote: "This is a big NO very insensitive and any backlash you get you deserve."

Savannah James responded to reports that her 16-year-old son, Bronny James, was romantically linked with 46-year-old Instagram influencer Larsa Pippen, simply because he 'liked' one of her pictures.

The rumor was allegedly started by a blogger who noticed Bronny "liked" one of Larsa's photos. Savannah, a grown woman who rarely addresses gossip, was not feeling the comments about her teenage son on the internet.

"With everything going on in the world right now, this is the s--t y'all talking about....," Savannah wrote on her Instagram Story.

"At the end of the day y'all are talking about a minor. I don't care what type of 'celebrity' y'all think he is, he's a child and the bulls--t needs to stop. Y'all got the right one."

It all started when sports blog Black Sports Online reported that Bronny "liked" one of Larsa's Instagram photos and sent her a direct message. It was the "direct message" lie that got under Savannah's skin and prompted her to issue a correction -- Black mama style.

Savannah, 34, and Lebron James, 35, share three children, Bronny, son Bryce Maximus, 13, and 6-year-old daughter Zhuri.

Larsa is best known as the wife of NBA legend Scottie Pippen and mother of his 4 children, Scottie Jr., Sophia, Justin, and Preston. They announced their divorce in 2016.

Larsa hired publicists to make her internet famous. Their efforts paid off and she was paired with the Kardashian Klan on some episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Larsa also appeared on The Real Housewives of Miami.

The former child star debuted his first single, "I Like It" at age 12. Now 33, Sammie is focused on living healthy and using natural skin and hair products.

"I've done some campaigns with Mielle, so I keep my beard and hair moisturized with [their] organic products," the crooner said of his grooming regimen. "Soap and water does not do any harm to me, so I just add on coconut oil and prayer. Just staying at peace ... I really don't be tripping about nothing, so I think that's what helps my skin and hair grow the way it does, no filter."

Added Sammie, "I use rosemary mint oil by Mielle for my beard. I just pick it out every morning, use some olive oil in there and I go out flourishing in the world."

Sammie's fifth studio album, Such is Life, is out now and he's writing a book titled "Good to Know" to "let women know the mindset of a man."

LisaRaye is the latest celebrity to join OnlyFans to pay her bills amid the weakening pandemic that threw many entertainers out of work.

According to Rhymeswithsnitch, LisaRaye made the announcement on her Instagram account. Her basic subscription price is $20 a month.

Other celebs, including Blac Chyna and Cardi B, have earned millions on the British content subscription service where p0rn stars earn enough cash to make ends meet.

In a video posted on her IG page, LisaRaye is seen fixing her lacefront wig while speaking to a friend who encourages her to join OnlyFans.

"I actually could get with that," she responds. She added that scrolling through all the negative opinions from haters on IG "makes me exhausted."

She promised to post "special stuff and all this behind-the-scenes stuff."

It isn't clear if LisaRaye will bare it all for the real cash. Some socialites earn $200 per view.

At 53, LisaRaye's body is still bringing the boys to the yard. Cougars like LisaRaye can do very well on OnlyFans if she takes it all off.

Kim Kardashian unfollowed former bestie Larsa Pippen because the two women grew apart.

Rumors swirled that Kim unfollowed Larsa because she slept with her sister Khloe's baby daddy, Tristan Thompson.

But sources tell TMZ the women unfollowed Scottie Pippen's wife because they just aren't as close as they used to be.

Larsa's name was dropped by Kim's husband, Kanye West, who went on a bipolar outburst on Twitter this week.

The "Gold Digger" star cryptically wrote "Larsa" in one of his tweets, and his followers noted that Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian had all unfollowed the former "Real Housewives of Miami" TV personality on Instagram.

According to TMZ, Kim quietly stopped following Larsa on Instagram at the end of last year when she made a decision to unfollow everyone. The move brought her follow count down to zero.

The source said Kim thought she needed a fresh start by following only accounts of her closest friends, family and childhood friends. At the time, she re-followed Larsa.

Larsa and Scottie Pippen and the Kardashians were good friends, even making appearances on episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

But Kim's followers noticed this week they weren't following each other on Instagram anymore. TMZ's sources say the ladies' friendship simply grew apart over time.

"We're told there was no drama between Kim and Larsa -- and the rumors floating around LP messed around with Kanye and Tristan Thompson are not true."

Kim is focused on getting Kanye healthy -- although she has tried for years to get him healthy with no luck.

She also has her 4 young kids to raise, while juggling law school studies and her 3 businesses.

Larsa is still followed by Kim's sisters Khloe and Kourtney (pictured left) on Twitter.

Larsa, meanwhile, says she's not worried about Kim unfollowing her because she is focused on her own kids, her new fitness line and her other "relationships in real life."

While no explanation has been given as to why Kanye tweeted her name, Larsa, who has also unfollowed the Kardashian siblings, addressed recent headlines in an Instagram Story on Wednesday, writing that she prays "everybody finds peace."

"I woke up this morning blessed and see that everybody is focused on who I am following and who I am not following on social media," she wrote. "I am focused on my children, my new fitness brand Larsapippenfitness, and my relationship in real life."

She concluded: "Praying that everybody finds peace in their own lives and focus on what brings them happiness."
