Scott Disick's girlfriend Amelia Hamlin, 19, slams 'blackfishing' claims after her skin appears darker in new photo

SCOTT Disick's girlfriend Amelia Hamlin, 19, slammed "blackfishing" claims after her skin appeared darker in a new photo.

Fans made fun of the picture as they said she was "morphing into a Kardashian."

Amelia, who has been dating Kourtney Kardashian's baby daddy, said on Instagram stories: "I'm reciving a lot of comments in regards to my latest photo.

"I am being told that I am 'black fishing' – thank you all for educating me on this topic. I recently went on vacation to the sun, and with my italian heritage, I tan very easily.

"There is no self-tanner involved or intention of looking darker than my own natural skin color. I had a lot of fun creating this look with no malice intention or offense."

Blackfishing is a term that has been used recently to define people who use self-tanner and makeup to manipulate their facial features in order to appear to black ancestry.

She was talking about her most recent picture, where she showed off a deep tan, slicked-back hair in a high braided pony, and a russet skin-tight crop top, making her the spitting image of a Kardashian.

Following her uploading the picture, fans were not impressed with the new look.

"And…. Amelia is morphing into a Kardashian," commented one account, pairing the picture with a snap from her Banana Republic campain.

Another added a side by side with a red carpet snap, adding: "Does this happe when you change your hair?

"Or just when you date Scott Disick? And yes these are both the same person… Amelia, Rinna’s daughter."

"Good Lord, she now she looks just like Khloe K," commented another, as one joked: "Oh goshhhhh why."

It comes just a short time after Scott, 37, made their romance Instagram official by sharing two photos of them while out on a pre-Valentine's Day date.

In the snaps, Scott and Amelia – who would later hit the beach together in Miami – could be seen sitting at a dinner table.

Looking relaxed and happy with one another, Scott put his arm around Amelia as the two grinned for the camera.

Scott and Amelia were first spotted together on Halloween of last year, and have since been causing controversy – many have called out their age gap, including Wendy Williams.

The talk show host recently scolded Amelia's parents, Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills' Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin.

Scott was previously in a relationship with Kourtney Kardashian – the pair share three kids: 11-year-old Mason, eight-year-old Penelope, and six-year-old Reign.

Kourtney, 41, recently made it official with her boyfriend, Blink-182 drummer, and father of two, Travis Barker.

A friend close to the new couple revealed exclusively to The Sun: "Kourtney and Travis are very close and they have unreal chemistry."

However, despite the former couple dating other people, Scott recently admitted in a Keeping Up With The Kardashians scene, that he would marry Kourtney her "right now," adding that he knows they will end up together in the future.
