The 16-year-old 'beauty queen' bride of a 65-year-old mayor in Brazil has bitten back at trolls and said "we don't care".
Mayor of Araucaria, a municipality in the Brazilian state of Paraná, Hissam Hussein Dehaini, 65, reportedly wed his teen bride Kauane Rode Camargo last month.
The high school student last year participated in the Miss Araucária contest, in the teen category (for girls aged 15 to 17) and came second. Reports state that she turned 16 the day before her wedding.

Finally breaking their collective silence last week, she took to Instagram and shared a picture with her husband, writing: "What matters, honestly… It's just that we don't care!"
He was first married in 1980, before his mother in law was born.
Metropoles also revealed that Dehaini has 16 children, one of them deceased.
