"What the f*** are they implying? I’d love an explanation please DM," Max wrote in the passionate post.

Fans were divided in the replies, with some sympathising with the intense media spotlight the relationship has been under, whereas others maintained that 13 years is an unorthodox gap.

This isn't the first time the couple have spoken out about their difference in age, chatting with HELLO! during their cover shoot, Max said: "People ask me: 'Do you notice it?' and I never have.

“We're so like-minded. I've got friends in their 30s and 40s," he continued.

Masie chimed in: "You connect with who you connect with."

The boyband member told the publication: “It never enters my mind. Maisie has already done so many things that I'm in awe of – I look up to her."

The speculation didn't seem to bother the couple as they appeared smitten as ever, with Masie professing: “It's every girl's dream and I've found it in Max.”
