Who Is Ashlen Diaz, Post Malone’s Girlfriend? Are They Still Together?

Post Malone is a musical star unlike any other in the game. His unique look, a combination of bedhead hair and bold facial tattoos, and his approach to his craft make him one of the most talked-about artists of the year, with a net worth of $14 million. Unlike his music, Post Malone’s private life typically flies under the radar, with the young rapper neither choosing to keep his relationship status quiet. However, his relationship with on-again, off-again girlfriend Ashlen Diaz has been making a lot of headlines in the past several months, with various publications wondering if the private pair is truly on the outs or just taking a break.

Post Malone was born Austin Richard Post in 1995 in New York. From a very young age, Malone was actively involved in music and was able to play guitar efficiently when he was nine years old. He joined a heavy metal band in high school, and when he was 16 years old, he created his very first mixtape.

For a short time, Malone attended college but dropped out after realizing he would rather pursue his musical interests. It was around this time that he changed his name to Post Malone, using an online name generator, as he explained in an interview. In 2015, Malone released his first single, White Iverson. He quickly started gaining attention from celebrities and record labels alike, and Malone enjoyed collaborations with artists like Kanye West and 50 Cent. Malone even performed at Kylie Jenner’s 15th birthday party and watched his social media following explode to new heights.

Malone has been on a steady rise since the release of the White Iverson single, and his albums Stoney and Beerbongs & Bentleys were both huge successes. Malone is currently working on a third album.

How did Ashlen Diaz and Post Malone start dating?

Ashlen Diaz and Post Malone started dating in 2015, with Diaz heavily supporting Malone through the challenging early days of his career. Reportedly, Diaz even had a hand in booking some of Malone’s nightclub shows.

The couple has been incredibly private about their relationship, and neither Malone or Diaz have shared many details about the dynamics of their dating life. However, in a 2016 interview, Malone admitted that the two had broken up and gotten back together before. He also stated that it was incredibly difficult to balance the commitments of his career with setting aside time for his girlfriend.

Even with the seeming ups and downs of their relationship, Diaz would occasionally take to social media to support her partner, as when she posted about his performance at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. There must have been more going on behind the scenes than either one of them let on, because in November 2018, reports surfaced that Malone and Diaz had split for good.

Post Malone’s current relationship status

Neither Diaz or Malone have commented on the alleged breakup, either on social media or in interviews. Adding fuel to the fire, only days after rumors of the split broke, Malone was photographed holding hands with an unknown woman in a Houston airport. The woman could be a friend, or something more – one thing seems certain, Post Malone prefers to handle his relationships on his own terms, and likely won’t comment on the nature of the hand-holding.

Will Diaz and Malone reunite? The two have broken up before and weathered more than a few storms that come with the spotlight. The New Year might hold the promise of a mended relationship for the country-punk rapper and his longtime girlfriend.
