People have been semi-certain for a while that Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson are dating, but the two officially confirmed the rumors on Friday night (June 14) via—what else?—an Instagram. They reportedly met on the set of the film Her Smell, which was released in April, and have since been snapped kissing in London. Benson’s also been spotted wearing a necklace with “A” and “C” on it and spent Delevingne’s birthday with her. But despite a comment in September by Benson on a ‘gram of Delevingne’s, which seemed to confirm the two were dating (Benson later said she was hacked), there’s been no official word on their status until now.
The Instagram was posted to Delevingne’s account, and it’s basically them making out. Delevingne captioned the ‘gram: “#PRIDE 🌈❤️😍🌈❤️😍” and tagged Benson in it.
Benson left a comment of her own: three hearts, which makes it about as official as possible.
The couple’s proud Instagram comes in the wake of a homophobic comment left on a ‘gram of Benson’s by a troll in late April. “Ashley I know you are here,” they wrote, according to BuzzFeed. “I’m serious, you need to stay away from that devil and never go back. I’m sure many strong, handsome, religious man [sic] would take you back in a heartbeat. You are not like this. You aren’t gay. You love men, and you need one.”
Benson and Delevingne promptly clapped back, of course: “You need to mind your own business,” Benson wrote, according to Buzzfeed. “Stop making things up.”
