Former Home and Away star Rhiannon Fish has hit back at critics who think her relationship with singer Reece Mastin is over now that she's moved to Hollywood.
"Sometimes, it feels like people are just waiting for this relationship to fail but in spite of the speculations or the comments you may have heard, we are still together," Rhiannon wrote Instagram this afternoon.
"We are best friends. Soul mates. I truly believe that we were meant for each other. So please stop with the hate."
Reece puts in his two cents' worth not long after: "Forever my princess, my bean, my angel I love you @rhiannonmfish :) forever baby.
"Forming a mental fist, a release from realities frustration, allowing my mind to focus on my heart, not on those who harm me and my love."
Rhiannon, 22, moved to Los Angeles earlier this month to try her luck during US TV pilot season.
"I am not coming back. I'll visit, because my family is here, but you have to totally commit to the fight there," the Canadian-born Aussie starlet told AAP in November. "It's one thing to send tapes but you have to be in those rooms to show you want it."

Rhiannon added that she and 19-year-old Reece have discussed getting married, but there is "no rush" just yet.
"I trust that Reece and I have a really strong relationship," she said. "People make long-distance [relationships] work, so there's no reason why we can't make it work too."
The pair have weathered some ups and downs during their year-and-a-half-long relationship, including fans' death threats to Rhiannon and a sexting scandal involving Reece and a teen fan. See what Reece told TheFIX about that below...
