Model Ireland Baldwin has broken her silence about her romance with rapper Angel Haze, insisting the media should be happy for the couple.

Bisexual Haze, real name Raykeea Angel Wilson, confirmed reports she was dating Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's daughter last week (ends27Jun14), attacking press claims the couple was just friends.

She raged, "An interracial gay couple, I mean that's just weird right now. We f**k and friends don't f**k. I've never f**ked one of my friends. Once I see you in that way, it doesn't happen."

And now Baldwin has responded to her girlfriend's outrage on, writing, "these gossip sites and articles need to relax. they twist words to make their lame publications more exciting.

"making this about race or the fact that were (we are) both women is rather outdated. this is a new world we live in people... 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. it's not cool. we're happy. we're healthy. that's all that matters."
