Hilaria Baldwin has urged people to not believe rumours that she and her husband, Alec Baldwin, were recently pulled over by the police.
“You guys are going to see photos of us that we pulled over on the side of the road,” the yoga instructor warned during her Instagram video.
She captioned it with a clear message: “THIS IS NOT TRUE AND A LIE.”
The 37-year-old went on to reveal the reality behind the scene.
“We’re getting chased by this one guy in particular who’s just really, really not very nice, and repeatedly we’ve had problems with him,” she referred to the paparazzi stalking her family.
The couple’s eldest daughter, Carmen Gabriela, was also with them in the car.
“I said to my daughter ‘when we need help, we ask for help’ so I saw a police officer and I showed her a video of him that I have from before.”
However, the situation escalated from there as she explained the unnamed man got out of his car and started “screaming at the police and screaming at me.”
Her intentions of sharing the experience took a motivational turn as she urged people to work together to create a more peaceful world.
“Most people are good people but there are people who take advantage of the system, and this is someone who is taking advantage of the system.”
“My purpose of telling you this is I don’t want people to tell you that you’re deserving of bad treatment because it’s just their opinion. You do deserve to be treated well. I deserve to be treated well. My husband deserves to be treated well. My children deserve to be treated well.”
She concluded by directing her focus towards the media.
“Freedom of the press is a really important thing. Journalists are really amazing. But there are people who have learned to manipulate the system.”
“I will continue to try to use my voice to connect with you guys and show you a window into what it’s really like because everything else is through all these different opinions and it’s like playing a game of telephone and then they want to curate things a certain way because they think they’re going to generate more clicks. You know, it’s all about money,” she disclosed.
