This is not your typical love affair between a pop star and a model, as 24-year-old Chinese pop star Zhang Muyi has caused controversy after publicly professing his love of his 12-years-old model girlfriend.


Despite the fact that Canada-based Akama Miki is recommended parental guidance at most movies, Zhang Muyi has still engaged in romantic conversations with her on Sina Weibo, a Chinese social networking site.

“Wait until I’m old enough to marry you, and then I’m going to say ‘I do’,” wrote Miki, who has 500,000 followers on the site, on the pop star’s page.

Muyi, who was hired as the girl’s music coach when she was eight-years-old, replied: “I simply can’t wait for these next four birthdays of yours to pass, I’m counting down each one.”

The two have recorded a number of duets together, and are often seen in pictures together.

I thought you were supposed to wait until you were in your 40s and divorced to date someone half your age.
