Would You Let Your 18-Year-Old Daughter Date A 36-Year-Old Man?

Ryan Phillippe and Demi Lovato's hookup proves that a big age gap is a bad idea.

Gross. Gross, gross, gross. Rumors are swirling that Ryan Phillippe and Demi Lovato have been secretly dating now for a few months. Ryan, 36, is twice Demi's age—quick math—aaaaand she's 18. Perez Hilton and E! News say that things have gotten pretty hot and heavy between the two recently, but that the relationship kind of started cooling down after Ryan's ex-girlfriend gave birth to his baby girl, Kai. Nothing like a little baby-mama drama to hopefully scare an 18-year-old girl into being a single teen again.

Pop quiz! If Ryan is indeed hooking up with Demi Lovato, then he's:

A) A total sleaze and should not date anyone whom his kids watch on the Disney channel.

or

B) Eh, just doing his thing. He's free to date whom he wants. It's not like it's illegal (even though it almost is).

I don't even think this is a tough one. To me, he's a sleaze ball. I don't care if there aren't any laws saying he can't date her, but goodness gracious, there should be.
