Oh No, What Is Ashley Benson Doing with G-Eazy?

I try to be a good person. After dirtying dishes, I promptly clean them; when a friend comes to me to complain of a particularly unpleasant person in their life, I heartily proclaim the offender to be my enemy as well. And yet, despite my intent to be a benevolent presence on this Earth, I keep finding myself forced to think about a man who goes by the name “G-Eazy.”

I first learned of the rapper in October 2018, when he had a particularly tragic Halloween after splitting from his partner at the time, Halsey. This year, he bombarded back into my consciousness when he and certified Hot Girl Megan Thee Stallion were spotted getting cozy over Super Bowl weekend. To my misery, he has returned, once again at the center of celebrity-dating speculation: This time, people suspect that he and actress Ashley Benson are “a thing.”

Over the weekend, photos emerged of G-Eazy and a “female friend,” widely believed to be Ashley Benson — who recently split from her girlfriend of nearly two years, Cara Delevingne — exiting Lassens Natural Food and Vitamins in Los Angeles together. Naturally, fans are losing it on social media. “i don’t want to live in a world where ashley benson broke up with cara delevingne to date g-eazy,” one person tweeted. Another: “ashley benson breaking up with cara to date g-eazy is like a cry for help.”

Aside from the recent photos, internet sleuths have latched onto two pieces of evidence that Benson and G-Eazy are a thing. Way back in January, the rapper posted an Instagram slideshow of dapper photos of himself, which Benson liked and responded to with a red heart emoji; G-Eazy then replied with a blue heart emoji. More recently, in response to G-Eazy’s Valentine’s Day post — more photos of him, with the caption “Happy v day 🌹🌹🌹💔💔💔 but you can’t be my girlfriend” — she commented, “The longest legs lolll.”

At this point, I’m not fully convinced they’re dating. Just a few weeks ago, Benson and G-Eazy released a cover “Creep” by Radiohead, which the rapper posted to his YouTube channel. Isn’t it possible they’re simply collaborating again — and, uh, taking some liberties with social-distancing mandates? Perhaps they got hungry while recording and had to make a snack run?

Also, while rebounds are notoriously regrettable, imagine going from Cara Delevingne to G-Eazy. I simply cannot!
