Adrienne first met Shafik when she was introduced to him through friends, and the pair immediately hit it off, despite the fact that the 63-year-old is older than her parents.

Shafik has previously been married five times, and has six children, the oldest of whom is 33, 12 years older than Adrienne.

However, despite their age gap, both of their families are supportive of the relationship, with Adrienne stating that her mum is Shafik’s “best friend”.

Speaking to Love Don’t Judge, she said: “My mum is like his best friend, she doesn’t message me, she messages him.”

“As time went on I saw that they were genuinely happy together so I tried to focus on that and be grateful that he has someone to share his life with.”

Soon after the couple started dating, Adrienne began posting videos of the duo to TikTok.
