Ireland Baldwin Splits With Boyfriend Slater Trout, Now Dating Herself
Baldwins are starting fresh all over the place lately. Alec Baldwin just said he’s done with public life, and his daughter Ireland just said she’s done dating surfer Slater Trout. (She's also done with platinum blonde hair; it's now purple.)
Film student/model Ireland, 18, told E! News she and Slater are no longer together. "I am focusing on work and school now," she said.
A source told Us Weekly Ireland's life has gotten crazy in the past year or so and she's trying to keep her momentum going as a model, which she can't do while also studying and maintaining a relationship. "She's young, she always had an idea that it wouldn't last forever."
Ireland (whose other parent is actress Kim Basinger) and Slater started dating last year, and in May 2013 she told People, "I would say he is my best friend. We have our moments but that's rare. We can act stupid in public, private or wherever and we are always laughing."
They seemed happy, but she's still just a teenager and there are other fish in the sea. Or as the 6'2" tall lady put it herself in this wise March 7 tweet, "Sometimes, you just have to date yourself. It's all about self improvement. Unless you can date Beyoncé, then date Beyoncé."
