Ashley Benson tries to muzzle rumors on relationship with Cara Delevingne, claims her Instagram was hacked
Rumors about Ashley Benson and Cara Delevingne are not old, yet it is almost laughable to see them try so hard to keep their relationship private without actually doing so
Ashley Benson confirmed that her Instagram account was hacked following a series of rumors that built upon Benson's apparent comment on Cara Delevingne's Instagram post. Benson, who has been quite private about her relationships, didn't seem to hold back when claiming Cara to be hers in the comment.
The 26-year-old model had uploaded a picture of hers, to which the 28-year-old 'Pretty Little Liars' star subtly commented "Mine". Her comment was soon followed by a series of speculations all suggesting that Benson has finally confirmed her relationship with Delevingne. However, the 'Spring Breakers' actress seems to have her own tactic to handle rumors. She posted a picture on her Instagram story on which she wrote, "When you just get off the plane with no Wifi and find out your Instagram got hacked." And it seems her account was revived pretty quickly.
Benson has had quite the record of keeping her relationships private. In August, she had told People that probably the best way to maintain a relationship is by keeping it private. "I’ve always been very private about them, and I think it’s just better. I mean it’s hard, I don’t know, you kind of can’t get away from that if you’re in the public eye. I just kinda try to keep myself as private as possible.” But privacy didn't seem to matter much when it came to confessing emotions. Benson had straightaway mentioned that Cara was "mine" and also didn't hold herself back from admiring her clothes. (Just like a true lover).
While neither of the two has actually spoken about their relationship, Benson's latest act of defense is raising speculations that there is certainly something steamy going on between them. Rumors about them seeing each other first surfaced when the two were spotted leaving the Lauryn Hill Concert at the Apollo Theatre in NYC. Cara was then rumored to be dating Paris Jackson. Benson and Delevingne were also seen holding hands in May while leaving the restaurant Lucky Strike in NYC. The two soon followed each other on Instagram and shared several images together.
Rumors also sparked when a fan claimed on Twitter to have apparently seen the two making out during an SNL taping.
It seemed that the two could no longer keep their relationship private when they were spotted stealing a kiss in West Hollywood. They fled the scene to avoid the paparazzi.
The two were also reportedly seen at Sofitel LA Riviera 31's Salsa Nights in Los Angeles celebrating Delevingne's birthday. According to a source who spoke to Entertainment Weekly, " Cara and Ashley were enjoying each other’s company, sitting closely together at a front row table by the dance floor. When the two weren’t sitting, they were intimately dancing with each other and laughing throughout the night. Cake and ice cream with candles were brought out for Cara as everyone in the lounge sang 'Happy Birthday.'"
Their relationship seemed almost confirmed when the two were photographed kissing at Heathrow Airport in London.
Although Benson has tried really hard to keep her relationship with Delevingne under wraps, it seems to be too bad an idea to even attempt privacy in the Instagram age. Benson has left hints all over her Instagram page, which indicates that there is definitely a lot going on between the duo.
