Ashley Benson started dating G-Eazy after ending a 2-year relationship with Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson dated for two years before going separate ways in May 2020. Rumors that Benson was dating rapper G-Eazy started circulating the same month. 

There seemed to be no bad blood between Benson and Delevingne, as the model defended her ex-girlfriend against trolls online. 

On May 14, 2020, Delevingne shared a message on her Instagram Stories after photos of Benson and G-Eazy surfaced. “It’s more important than ever to spread love, not hate,” Delevingne wrote (per Glamour). “To everyone hating on @ashleybenson please stop. You don’t know the truth, only her and I do, and that’s exactly how it should be.”

G-Eazy and Benson dated for about a year before separating in February 2021.
