Things between Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson came to an end in May 2020 when the former flames decided to go their separate ways. After more than two years together, In Touch confirmed that the Pretty Little Liars star and model officially called it quits.
“This split is not surprising to Ashely and Cara’s inner circle,” a source told Life & Style. “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.”
The insider also explained that the pair started to “grow apart” and said they “know it wasn’t an easy decision” for the couple to ultimately split. The ladies were first linked back in May 2018, and after that, they quickly became couple goals. Before the split, they were pretty much always together, sharing adorable, PDA-filled pictures and showing off their love — and fans were seriously living for it!
Nearly a year after news of their breakup, Cara briefly discussed what went wrong during an interview with Cosmopolitan in June 2021.
“I don’t feel like I’ve ever left a relationship so f–ked up that it’s been like, ‘I never want to speak to that person again,’” she told the magazine. “I just love all the people I was ever with and want the best for them, you know what I mean? I want to see them grow, see them happy.”
While Cara didn’t talk specifically about her ex — who briefly moved on with G-Eazy from May 2020 to February 2021 — she explained that some circumstances created from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic was “the most trying time.” The Suicide Squad actress explained that the quarantine “really makes or breaks you” when it comes to relationships.
