    The pair first got to know each other in March, when Kourtney's 10-year-old son Mason made a cameo in one of Addison's TikTok videos, and they seem to have only grown closer since.

    But under every Instagram photo the friends post together, you can find countless comments questioning their friendship and their 22-year age difference.

    "You are literally her mom what is this relationship," one commenter wrote on a photo posted in August.

    "This girl is closer in age to Mason," another person said. "I'm a bit concerned for you."

    The comments on the photo were full of people calling Kourtney and Addison's friendship "weird" and "confusing", with each one racking up thousands of likes.
