Ariel Winter slams tabloid for suggesting she gives boyfriend an allowance
The Modern Family star has gone on the defensive about her romance more than once in recent months.
Actress Ariel Winter has taken to Instagram on Wednesday (21Jun17) to hammer U.S. magazine editors for printing a false story about her relationship.
The Modern Family star is seriously dating fellow actor Levi Meaden and after reading a tabloid report claiming she gives him an allowance, the 19-year-old went online to set the record straight.
"Star Magazine is OBVIOUSLY a non reputable (sic) source and a trash magazine, but seriously how dare you make up stuff that you have no idea about?" she wrote in a note. "I would NEVER pay my boyfriend ANY sort of allowance, nor would he EVER accept if I offered. He BUYS his own stuff whether it's for me or himself, and he more than pulls his weight for our life."
Ariel, who shares a home with Levi, moved on to fume about her rage against the media in general.
"I HATE fake news, but I guess that's what our world has come to," she noted before advising journalists to, "Get your s**t straight." "I don't support anyone, and I don't need anyone to support me," Winter concluded.
Ariel has been dating Levi, 29, since last year (16) and she has gone on the defensive about their romance more than once in recent weeks.
The teenager recently revealed she doesn't care about criticism over the 10-year age gap between them, insisting dating an older man has proven to be a great asset in her life.
"I'm happy, and whatever people want to say they can say," she told Refinery29 in May (17). "I don't understand why someone would even comment on our situation at all; I don't think it's that big of a deal...
"I'm super happy in the arrangement that we have; we love living together and we share all the duties and it's great."
