The parents of a man who has sparked controversy after dating a young woman trapped in the body of an eight-year-old girl has insisted the couple are ‘just friends’.
Dan Swygart, 26, has been romantically linked to Shauna Rae Lesick, 23, after they featured on her reality TV show in the USA.
The Briton has been accused of being a ‘creep’ and being attracted to 3ft 10in tall Shauna ‘because she looks like a kid’.
