We are excited to report that Selena Gomez has officially confirmed her relationship with music producer Benny Blanco. The two have been rumored to be dating for the past few months, but Selena herself made it “facts” this week in an Instagram comment.
Selena and Benny have actually known each other for years and first worked together musically in 2015. Benny produced Selena’s hits “Same Old Love” and “Kill Em With Kindness” from her album Revival. They teamed up again in 2019 for the song “I Can’t Get Enough” with J Balvin and Tainy. Most recently, Benny produced Selena’s latest single “Single Soon” which came out this past August.
So how long have Selena and Benny actually been dating? Well according to Selena’s Instagram comment, it’s been about 6 months! She replied to a fan’s question saying “It’s been 6 months bb.”
Selena went on to fiercely defend her new man against some negative comments on Instagram. She called Benny “the best thing that’s ever happened to me” and said he has “treated me better than any human being on this planet.” When one fan commented that Benny wasn’t handsome, Selena replied saying “then why is he the most gorgeous man I have ever seen?” She went on to shut down the haters, firmly stating “I will never allow your words to guide my life. Ever. I’m done. If you can’t accept me at my happiest then don’t be in my life at all.”
It’s clear that Selena is head over heels for her new beau Benny. We haven’t seen her this happy in a relationship in a long time. Benny attended Selena’s 31st birthday party back in July, so they have likely been together since at least the summer.
Selena topped off the Instagram relationship confirmation by posting a selfie snuggled up to Benny and also a photo of herself wearing a diamond “B” ring, presumably for his first name. It looks like things are getting serious between these two!
We wish Selena and Benny all the best in their new relationship. We have a feeling these two creative souls will continue to make beautiful music together, both in the studio and in their personal lives. Selena seems so happy, healthy and at peace right now. We can’t wait to see what exciting new projects the power couple works on next!
Selena Gomez Previous Relationships
Selena has been linked to many famous men over the years. She dated Nick Jonas back in 2008 when they were both Disney stars, but split in March 2010 after about 2 years together. Selena was then briefly linked to Twilight actor Taylor Lautner in 2009 while filming the movie Ramona and Beezus. Her longest and most high-profile relationship was with pop superstar Justin Bieber, on and off from 2011-2018. During one of their breakup periods, Selena had a short-lived romance with DJ Zedd in 2015. She also dated The Weeknd for about 10 months in 2017. More recently, Selena has been rumored to be casually dating Niall Horan from One Direction in late 2015 and Charlie Puth in early 2016 after collaborating on music.
While Selena tends to keep the details private, it’s clear she has a track record of falling for creative, talented men in the public eye. Her latest beau, Benny Blanco, seems to make her incredibly happy based on her public Instagram comments about their relationship. We wish her and her new man the very best!
