Angel Haze has confirmed her romance with Ireland Baldwin.
The 22-year-old rapper told the Independent that she is dating Alec Baldwin“s 18-year-old daughter – and lamented the way their relationship had been reported in the press.
“I don”t know if there”s like some confirm or deny thing with the way relationships work in the media, but everyone calls us best friends, best friends for life, like we”re just friends hanging out,” she told the newspaper.
“It”s funny. It”s rad in some ways, it sucks in others.”
The couple met at New York Fashion Week through Ireland”s cousin. They started off as friends before becoming romantically involved, and have since gone public with their relationship through social media.
“There are still certain limitations for women,” Angel said. “If we were two guys, it”d be insane, negatively insane with all the attention.
“With us it”s all been very positive. The media are like, “Oh, they”re so cute, they”re best friends”,” she added, musing that a high-profile “interracial gay couple” is “weird for America right now“.
Angel was speaking ahead of her appearance at Glastonbury Festival on Saturday, where she was supported by her girlfriend.
Ireland was previously in a relationship with surfer Slater Trout, but the couple split up in March after a year of dating.
