James Argent (34) called out for dating 18-year-old girl
James Argent has "totally fallen" for the teenager.
Former TOWIE star James Argent has been called out over his questionable relationship with an 18-year-old girl.
The 34-year-old reality star is in a relationship with Stella Turian and things are getting serious between the pair.
Argent is reportedly visiting Italy to meet his girlfriend's parents.
Despite the 16-year age gap, Stella's parents gave James their approval.
The reality star has "fallen" for the teenager.
A source told the Daily Mail, "James has totally fallen for Stella and she adores him too."
"That's why she was very keen for him to meet her family and go official with how she feels.

"James and Stella both lead busy lives, but they are keen to spend as much time as possible with one another and are planning a holiday, probably to Dubai, before the end of the year."
Despite their loved-up relationship, people have called Argent out over the inappropriate age difference.
One person wrote, "I’m only 26 and an 18-year-old is literally a child to me. The thought of ever dating someone who is that young makes me feel uneasy, so 34 is truly baffling. It’s such disgusting behavior. What on earth would a 34-year-old man have in common with a teenager?"
"One day she’ll be 34, and she’ll realise that a normal 34-year-old wouldn’t have any interest in pursuing a relationship with an 18-year-old."
Another shared, "It's shocking how many people support this. Makes me feel sick."
Many defended Argent and said Stella is of legal age but does that make it right?
