There have been rumors flying for months about celebs Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson. The rumors started in 2018, when Delevingne and Benson filmed the movie “Her Smell” together, but Benson told Teen Vogue that she has “always been private” about her relationship.
“I mean it’s hard…you kind of can’t get away from that if you’re in the public eye,” the actor said. “I just kinda try to keep myself as private as possible.”
So now, after months of obsessively watching Instagram to try to figure out their relationship status, Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson are officially official. We found this out after Delevingne posted a picture on Instagram, which showed a short video of them sharing a kiss in “Her Small.”
Then, on the red carpet for the TrevorLIVE Gala on Monday in New York City, Delevingne said that she was ready to come out because of the 50th Anniversary of Stonewall, as well as their anniversary.
“I don’t know [if it’s] because it is Pride, it’s been 50 years since Stonewall happened and I don’t know,” Cara explained to Teen Vogue. “It’s been just about our one year anniversary so, why not?”
In an interview with the Trevor Project, Delevingne said, “I think it’s so important to support the LGBTQ youth because every member of that community and our community should be a member of the world’s community. We all deserve the right to love and to be free and to love without shame.”
Delevingne also called out Benson while accepting The Hero Award at the TrevorLIVE Gala. While accepting her award, Delevingne gave Benson a shoutout, and thanked her for the time they have shared together: “I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are,” Delevingne said. “She’s one of the people who helped me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought.”
