An interview last week claimed that Angel Haze stated America wasn't ready for an interracial gay couple in regards to her relationship with Ireland Baldwin.
Following that, Ireland went on a Twitter rant on Sunday defending her rapper girlfriend and claiming her words were twisted, while arguing that commentary about their relationship should be unrelated to race or gender.
The 18-year-old daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger had just finished watching Angel perform at Glastonbury Music Festival when she took to social media to express her thoughts.
'Making this about race or the fact that were both women is rather outdated,' Ireland wrote, adding, 'This is a new world we live in people.'
The model continued: 'Our private life should be respected as well. A lot of claims have been recently posted that we're never said. reporters like to take our words, alter them to their benefit and run [sic]'
'It's not cool. We're happy. We're healthy. That's all that matters,' she concluded, speaking of her budding new relationship with the 22-year-old Detroit born musician.
Ireland's cousin Hailey Baldwin had been in the UK with her to attend Glastonbury, and offered a few words of support via her own Twitter account.
'You do what makes you happy Bee and stick with positive people who add to your happiness,' she wrote, after spending a weekend she Ireland and Angel. 'Love you guys!'
Whilst hanging out together and watching the festival, the trio posted numerous snaps of each other.
Angel shared a cute photo in which she and Ireland were cuddled up asleep together, captioning it: 'we passed out at Glastonbury. Finally done. Let's go home.'
The couple later took Hailey to the airport to send her back to America, and the sleepy girls shared an airport group shot as they wished her well.
But in spite of her girlfriend's fierce defense of her, Angel still tweeted later on that she feels isolated and likened herself to one of the late greats of history.
'Me against the world... swear i feel like tupac,' she wrote on Sunday.
Angel had previously spoken with The Independent about her relationship with Ireland, who she met at New York Fashion Week four months ago.
She allegedly told the publication: ‘An interracial gay couple, I mean that’s just weird for America right now.’
‘We f**k and friends don’t f**k. I have never f**ked one of my friends. Once I see you in that way, it doesn’t happen.'
The rapper also discussed the way their relationship has been portrayed in the media, though their relationship status has never been confirmed by either party until now.
‘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.
‘It’s funny. It’s rad in some ways, it sucks in others.’
It seems that Haze is open to talk about her sexuality, though in an article she wrote for Noisey, she says that her sexual preference shouldn’t be up for discussion.
‘If we were in a sexual situation you would know exactly who I am sexually,’ she writes. ‘But if we’re just having a conversation you don’t need to know what I do in private.’
Angel also discusses the social stigma she felt growing up when her family and friends discussed bisexuality.
‘I went through so much s**t. A lot of my friends basically said, “Bisexual people are disgusting, you don’t know what you want.” My family was the hardest, my mum said I was going to burn in hell.’
Baldwin was previously in a relationship with surfer Slater Trout, but the couple split in March this year after 12 months of dating.
Her father Alec does not have a good history with the LGBT community after he was accused of using homophobic slurs on more than a few occasions over the last years.
It is rumoured that the alleged homophobic incidents contributed to the cancellation of his MSNBC show.
