In the ever-watchful eyes of celebrity gossip, the relationship status of Selena Gomez has been a subject of speculation. Recent Instagram activity has now fueled rumors about a potential romance between Gomez and record producer Benny Blanco.
Are Selena Gomez and Benny Blanco dating?
Gomez took a proactive step in addressing the rumors by breaking her silence on the matter. She liked and commented “facts” on an Instagram post from the celebrity news fan account PopFaction, which boldly proclaimed, “Selena Gomez Seemingly Confirms That She Is in a Relationship.” Another post by PopFaction titled “Selena Gomez Is Rumored to Be Dating Producer Benny Blanco” also received Gomez’s endorsement through her likes.
The intrigue deepened when Gomez commented with a winky face emoji on an Instagram post from a fan account discussing her crush. This playful interaction occurred a couple of months after Gomez hinted at having a crush while filming Selena + Chef’s holiday specials.
Contrary to recent reports stating Gomez was single, an insider revealed to Entertainment Tonight on November 26 that Gomez is casually dating and doing well. The source emphasized Gomez’s focus on her own well-being and her commitment to maintaining boundaries.
The connection between Gomez and Blanco is evident on social media, as they follow each other on Instagram. PopFaction pointed out that Gomez’s Instagram Story promoting Blanco’s book and her engagement with his posts added fuel to the dating rumors.
Interestingly, Gomez’s mother recently started following Blanco on Instagram, and Blanco shared an Instagram Story featuring a note from his “girlfriend” with a woman napping in the background who bore a striking resemblance to Gomez.
Moreover, Blanco’s discreet attendance at Gomez’s Rare Impact Fund Benefit in October suggested a supportive presence between the two.
Gomez’s previous romantic link was with Zayn Malik in the spring, making the current speculation around her relationship with Benny Blanco the latest chapter in the ongoing narrative of the pop sensation’s personal life.
