Dating in the public eye! Ashley Benson has been romantically linked to some pretty famous faces over the years. Despite her pretty public two-year relationship with Cara Delevingne, the Pretty Little Liars star actually prefers to keep her romances under wraps.
“I usually keep my relationships private,” she told Cosmopolitan U.K. in March 2021. “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.”
During the same interview, Ashley said that she often finds it hard to deal with “people’s opinions” about her dating life.
“If gossip comes out and stories are completely false, what can you do? I’m not going to sit out there and be like, ‘This isn’t true, this is what’s really happening,'” she shared. “The most annoying part is having to sit back and be quiet while everybody talks about you and you have to deal with it. People can say whatever they want about me, but unless you know me, you don’t really know anything at all.”
Ashley and Cara first started dating in 2018. They were often photographed together despite keeping things mainly off social media. News of their split broke in May 2020. “This split is not surprising to Ashely and Cara’s inner circle,” a source told Life & Style following the breakup news. “The thing is that no one wanted it to be true. They were great together, a dynamic duo and everyone loved having them around. That’s why this is so hard.”
Following her split from the model, Ashley moved on with G-Eazy. They were together for a few months — from May 2020 until February 2021 — before news of their breakup went public. While they didn’t comment on their relationship, the pair was often photographed in Los Angeles together, and the rapper did call Ashley “an exceptionally talented person” while chatting with Entertainment Tonight in October 2020.
“She’s a special one,” G-Eazy gushed. “It just blew me away that you can have such a hidden, special talent that the world doesn’t get to see as often.”
As for why the duo ended up calling it quits? A source told Us Weekly in February 2021 that their breakup came quickly. “Ashley and G-Eazy fell hard for each other fast. Everything moved very quickly, and they were obsessed with each other. Recently things took a hard turn for the worse,” the insider said. “They were arguing all the time, and it wasn’t good for either of them. Ashley is the one who ended things.”
Prior to her two high-profile relationships, Ashley was romantically linked to Justin Bieber‘s stylist, one of her PLL costars and an actor from Glee in the past. Scroll through our gallery for the actress’ complete dating history.
