The Real Reason Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson Broke Up

Ashley Benson y Cara Delevingne

Pretty little liars star Ashley Benson and actor Cara Delevingne split after two years of dating, People reported on May 6, 2024. The couple, who reportedly lived together in Los Angeles before the split, sparked dating rumors for the first time in August 2018 when they were seen kissing at London Heathrow Airport.

A year later, in June 2019, the relationship was confirmed when Delevingne shared an Instagram video of the couple kissing, which she posted in honor of LGBTQ Pride Month.

The two of them seemed to have grown stronger from the beginning of their romance. “It’s a different kind of relationship with a lot of understanding, support, and loving communication,” the source revealed. “They just do normal things like having coffee, walking the dog or going to the movies … They are very sweet and loving together.”

However, in December 2019, possible cracks appeared in the duo’s relationship when Delevingne’s Twitter account was published (via Refinery29 ), “Ashley and I are done.” Many fans speculated Suicide Squad Star’s account was hacked, although this was never confirmed. Benson later clarified that the two had not parted ways when responding to a fan.

Six months after the tweet debacle, the couple reportedly went their separate ways. So what went wrong? A highly identifiable reason could be to blame.

Did the spark fade away?

Ashley Benson’s last public photo with Cara Delevingne was on February 14, 2024, which shows the two sharing a kiss. The then couple shared the snap to support the nonprofit, Stand Up To Cancer, with Benson calling the effort “a kiss with a cause.”

Cut to May 2024, and it looks like this cute couple no longer exists. A source told People that the couple broke up in early April 2024, with Delevigne “spending time with friends like Margaret Qualley and her sister Rainey Qualley, as well as Kaia Gerber.”

The source added: “Cara and Ashley always had their ups and downs before, but now it’s over. Their relationship just ran its course.”

Another source said Lifestyle that the ladies’ friends did not find the break “surprising” as they had allegedly had “problems.”

It remains to be seen if these two will ever be together again, but it is clear that Delevigne is in love with the concept of love. “I’m better when I’m in love,” she said to Elle UK in September 2019. “That doesn’t have to mean someone. It can also mean myself.” She added: “It just feels amazing when you are not alone. When you face the world with someone else.”
