Ariel Winter denies she gives boyfriend an allowance: ‘I would NEVER’

Ariel Winter says she doesn’t give boyfriend Levi Meaden an allowance.

The 19-year-old Modern Family star denied a report Wednesday on Instagram claiming she pays Meaden to cook, clean and perform other household chores.

“I have a BOYFRIEND and a PERSONAL ASSISTANT who are NOT the same person,” Winter wrote. “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 for himself, and he more than pulls his weight for our life.”

“I HATE fake news, but I guess that’s what our world has come to,” she added. “I don’t support anyone, and I don’t need anyone to support me. He’s got a full career (including something huge that’s new) and works hard for it. He’s not just someone’s boyfriend.”

Star magazine reported Winter is the “breadwinner” in her relationship and gives Meaden, a 29-year-old actor known for The Killing and Aftermath, an allowance. The actress’ rep told Gossip Cop the story was “nonsense.”
