She’s been lucky enough to steal the affections of Aussie rocker Reece Mastin – but Rhiannon Fish says there is a downside to being the singer’s girlfriend – his overprotective fans!

“People send me messages on Twitter, saying, ‘I hate you, I can’t believe you are dating my husband,” the ‘Home and Away’ star told the Sunday Telegraph.

But, the 21-year-old beauty insists that no amount of hate mail can put her off!

“He’s worth it,” she added. “The death threats I can overlook.”

Meanwhile, things seem to be getting pretty hot and heavy for the new couple, with Rhiannon planning to introduce him to her parents soon.

“My mum is obsessed with him, she’s very excited,” she gushed.

And for those wondering how the young sweethearts first hit it off, the brunette says their feelings developed after she starred in the video clip for Reece’s single ‘Shout It Out’ in June.

“We became friends during the shoot and hung out on a friends basis for a very long time.”
