Ariel Winter Slams “Fake News” That She Gives Her Boyfriend an Allowance
Ariel Winter is not paying for her love.
The Modern Family actress is slamming reports she gives her boyfriend, Levi Meaden, an allowance every week.
Following the rumors, the 19-year-old posted a scathing statement on Instagram Wednesday, June 21.
"Seriously, how dare you make up stuff that you have no idea about?" she said in the post.
"I have a BOYFRIEND and a PERSONAL ASSISTANT who are NOT the same person. I would NEVER pay my boyfriend ANY sort of allowance, nor would he EVER accept if I offered."
The actress then bashed the “fake news” that keeps popping up in regards to her relationship with the 29-year-old.
"He BUYS his own stuff whether it's for me or himself, and he more than pulls his weight for our life," she continued.
"I HATE fake news, but I guess that's what our world has come to. Get your s—t straight. I don't support anyone, and I don't need anyone to support me."
And, not only is he not being paid by the brunette beauty, he has a successful career of his own.
"He's got a full career (including something huge that's new) and works hard for it,” she shared.
“He's not just someone's boyfriend. So if you don't know us, don't comment. Xoxo."
Ariel has been forced to defend her relationship with Levi before, mostly due to the fact he is 10 years older than she is and they’re living together.
“I do have my own house, last year I bought my own house,” she told Jimmy Kimmel in May.
“My boyfriend and I live together. He cooks [and] takes care of all the handy stuff. I can bake pie occasionally — pumpkin and apple. I’m the worst wifely person.”
Then, following the backlash, Ariel defended their housing situation.
"I don’t understand why someone would even comment on our situation at all," she told Refinery29.
"There are tons of people of all ages that live with their boyfriend. There are tons of people that live with their girlfriends, [and] tons of people that don’t live together and are super happy,” she continued.
“But I’m super happy in the arrangement that we have. We love living together. It’s just great."
