Professor Green frustrated by snobbery over relationship with Made In Chelsea star
Professor Green has admitted he is frustrated by the snobbery over his relationship with Made In Chelsea’s Millie Mackintosh.
The East London rapper, who began dating the reality show star late last year, told The Independent that he’s tired of the press pointing out the differences between their backgrounds.
He said: “It's just all the things they write and say and imply. If the difference was race or we were a gay couple, they probably wouldn't be as quick to point the difference out. But because it's class, it's fair game. That's still prejudice.
“You're effectively calling me a commoner – which I am, common as muck. But I'm doing all right for myself, and I'm well-mannered, I'm courteous. Which is not something that's a given for someone who has a better background. As I find out every day."
The 28-year-old, who previously stated he would never become a regular on the E4 series, also claimed that people’s pre-conceived ideas about the couple couldn’t be further from the truth:
"She's not thick as shit. And I'm a marginally decent human being. She works for her money. She doesn't live off a handout. She works fucking hard. So yeah, it's all just a bit of a wind-up."
