Angel Haze says press coverage of her romantic relationship with Alec Baldwin's daughter Ireland "sucks" because it depicts them as friends.
Angel Haze has been dating Alec Baldwin's daughter Ireland for several months now, and though the'res been no shortage of press photographing them together, she thinks that the media is misjudging their relationship. In a new interview with The Independent, the rapper says she thinks the press, mostly American, is hesitant to call them a gay couple, and instead prefer to label them friends.
“I don’t know if there’s like some confirm or deny thing with the way relationships work in the media, but everyone just calls us best friends, best friends for life, like we’re just friends hanging out,” she said. “It’s funny. It’s rad in some ways, it sucks in others."
Especially on Haze's social media accounts, it's very clear that she and Baldwin are romantically linked, as she frequently posts pictures of them being physically intimate or text posts about her love for Baldwin.
“There are still certain limitations for women,” Haze said. “If we were two guys, it’d be insane, negatively insane with the attention. With us it’s all being very positive, the media are like, ‘Oh they’re so cute, they’re best friends.'"
Speaking on the biracial nature of their relationship, she added, "An interracial gay couple, I mean that’s just weird for America right now. We fuck and friends don’t fuck. I have never fucked one of my friends. Once I see you in that way, it doesn’t happen. But we do fuck and it’s crazy and that’s weird to say because I think about it in terms of an audience reading it and them thinking, ‘What the hell?’ But it happens.”
