Earlier this week rumors surfaced that Ireland Baldwin was getting "cozy" with filmmaker Tao Ruspoli, who was previously married to Olivia Wilde. However, the 19-year-old model and her dad Alec Baldwin dismissed the gossip in a series of hilarious text messages Ireland shared on Instagram Thursday.
In the screen shot, Ireland's actor father sent her a link to a story about her grabbing breakfast with 39-year-old Ruspoli at Gjelina in Venice, California. Along with the link Alec jokingly wrote, "Ooooooooo."
Ireland responded that she had just met Ruspoli. When the "30 Rock" alum asked whether she was pregnant or getting married to the filmmaker, Ireland replied, "No, dad, Jesus."
In the caption she added, "This is what happens when you get coffee with friends. You get coffee and then you get pregnant and then it spirals out of control from there… #morningtextswithdad #whotakesphotosofpeopleat7am #Ihateeveryone.”
Ruspoli and Wilde ended their eight year marriage in 2011 citing irreconcilable differences. Ireland, meanwhile, split from girlfriend Angel Haze in April, shortly before checking into rehab for "emotional trauma."
At the time, Ireland didn't say whether the breakup played a part in her going to rehab but she told fans via a Twitter statement that she needed to get "away for a little bit."
“I'm not much [of] a party cat but I am here [to] deal with some emotional trauma and getting the intensive therapy I needed in order to recover,” Ireland said. “Someday I'll feel ready to share my story openly without feeling the way I do."
