Are things heating up for Ashley Benson and G-Eazy following their split? The couple appears to have reconciled their relationship.
In January 2022, Us Weekly reported that the pair were giving their romance another try nearly a year after news of their split first broke. A source told the publication that the actress and rapper “never lost touch” after their February 2021 breakup.
Romance rumors first started swirling between the two in May 2020. At the time, they were caught smooching in a now-viral video, which came weeks after the Pretty Little Liars alum had split from Cara Delevingne after two years together. Months after sparking relationship speculation, a source told Us Weekly in November 2020 that the couple is “having fun and doing well.”
“They’re super comfortable with each other and have bonded a ton during the quarantine,” the insider said, adding, “Ashley and G-Eazy have become super serious. But not in terms of an engagement, marriage or a baby yet.”
Although they’ve kept their romance under wraps, G-Eazy — whose real name is Gerald Earl Gillum — spoke out about his relationship with Ashley for the first time during an October 2020 interview.
“She’s an exceptionally talented person in many different spaces,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “She’s a special one. Obviously, she’s a great actress, but, you know, getting to work with her and putting her in front of a microphone and watching her sing so effortlessly, she has this very special tone of voice and texture and something that’s very innate to her given that’s not her first job or what she’s known for. It just blew me away that you can have such a hidden, special talent that the world doesn’t get to see as often.”
In February 2021, Us Weekly that they had gone their separate ways after less than one year together. At the time, a source told the publication that “things took a hard turn for the worse.” But in the months following their breakup, they were continuously spotted together. The Spring Breakers star also spoke about experiencing relationships in the public eye during a March 2021 interview with Cosmopolitan U.K.
“I usually keep my relationships private,” Ashley said at the time. “You obviously can’t help if you get photographed together. [But] it’s more sacred that way. Those private moments are for you and your partner, and I think it’s best not to be over-exposed, and you can really protect your relationship if you’re not exploiting it.”
After their rendezvous in early 2021, things appeared to have fizzled out between them until December of that year when The New York Post’s Page Six obtained photos of Ashley and G-Eazy at an L.A. restaurant together following the holidays.
