Selena Gomez made an official announcement on December 7, 2023, validating her romantic involvement with Benny Blanco. Consequently, there has been an increased curiosity among fans and observers to delve into the progression and chronology of their relationship.
In a delightful update, Selena Gomez revealed on her Instagram page on Dec. 7, 2023, that she is happily in a relationship with none other than producer Benny Blanco. The duo, who have been collaborating professionally for quite some time now, have taken their friendship to the next level and have been dating for approximately six months, as Selena shared in her post.
Although Selena’s dating journey has often been under close scrutiny, she made it clear that she is happily “off the market” by confirming her relationship with Benny Blanco. This joyful revelation came after Selena initially confirmed her relationship status through a comment on a fan account. Later, she further expressed her happiness and love by sharing a heartwarming photo of the two of them together on her own Instagram Stories.
After the news broke about Selena and Benny’s relationship, fans and followers were understandably curious about their past and how their romance blossomed. Their enduring professional partnership has undoubtedly played a significant role in bringing them closer together as a couple.
Benny took on the role of Selena’s producer in 2015, marking the beginning of their professional relationship. With a rich musical background and a friendship with Selena’s ex, Justin Bieber, Benny brought his expertise to songs like “Same Old Love” and “Kill ‘Em With Kindness”. Their collaboration continued in 2019 with the release of their single “I Can’t Get Enough” and their joint appearance in its music video.
In October 2020, fans speculated that there may have been some tension between Selena and Benny. While their romantic involvement did not begin until 2023, some fans believed that Benny subtly criticized Selena in an interview from 2020 when he was promoting his collaboration with Justin Bieber on the song “Lonely”. During the interview, Benny talked about “cookie-cutter pop artists” who also have makeup lines. This comment came just a month after Selena launched Rare Beauty and a couple of years after her breakup with Justin.
Benny praised Justin for being authentic and open about his struggles, contrasting him with the mentioned “cookie-cutter pop artists”. He also commended Justin for his growth as an adult and for his bravery in releasing the song.
Selena and Benny officially began dating in mid-2023, although Selena only revealed their relationship publicly in December. In a comment, she confirmed that they had been together for approximately six months. Throughout the months leading up to the announcement, Benny was seen at various events related to Selena, such as her birthday party, and he also worked on her song “Single Soon”.
Finally, on December 7, Selena openly addressed their relationship and expressed her happiness. She praised Benny, stating that he had treated her better than anyone else she had ever known. With these developments, we hope for the best for Selena and Benny in their relationship journey.
