Rapper Angel Haze has confirmed that she and Ireland Baldwin are much more than friends in a recent interview.

Angel Haze, Ireland Baldwin Are Official

Haze, who is scheduled to perform at the UK’s Glastonbury Festival, got candid about her relationship with Baldwin with The Independent. To Haze, it’s been a strange phenomenon to see how the media has shied away from labeling the two as girlfriends – instead referring to them as best friends and gal pals.

“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,” Haze told The Independent. “It’s funny. It’s rad in some ways, it sucks in others.”

“If we were two guys, it’d be insane, negatively insane with the attention,” Haze added. “With us it’s all been very positive, the media are like, ‘Oh they’re so cute, they’re best friends.’”

Haze went on to state that part of the hang-up people have with labeling them as a couple is the fact that they’re in a gay, interracial relationship. Bluntly, the openly pansexual rapper said she has sex with Baldwin and she doesn’t have sex with friends.

"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,” said Haze. “But we do f–k 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.”

Haze was introduced to Baldwin at New York Fashion Week through the model’s cousin. Though they started off as friends, things soon turned romantic. Since then, both Haze and Baldwin have shared glimpses of their relationship through Twitter and Instagram with flirty pictures and suggestive posts.
