In a recent interview with Variety, Cara Delevingne discussed what it’s like dating in the public eye.

Although she didn’t mention her recent break up with Ashley Benson, she said she feels bad for anyone she’s ever dated.

“I’ve always felt bad for anyone I’ve ever been in a relationship with,” Delevingne said. “It’s very hard to maintain the normality in it. I think it’s why I tend to keep my private life a lot more private now, because that public thing can actually ruin a lot of things.”

The model split from her long-term partner earlier this year after dating for over two years.

Benson, best known for her role in “Pretty Little Liars” and Delevingne were first linked in 2018, but they didn’t confirm their relationship until the summer of 2019.

It’s rumored the two started dating while filming the 2018 film, “Her Smell,” which also stars Elisabeth Moss.

In May 2018, the ladies were spotted holding hands, which prompted speculation they were more than friends. In August, photos surfaced of the two kissing while at London's Heathrow Airport.

But, they didn’t make their relationship known until June 2019, when Delevingne posted a video of her and Benson kissing on Instagram to celebrate Pride.

In September of that year, Delevingne told Elle UK, why she doesn’t like discussing her private life.

"I get why people care so much, and I don’t want to be so secretive that people think I’m ashamed of anything. But I’ve never been in a relationship where things are so public, or where I posted pictures of someone else,” she said.

“Because if it is something that is so good, you don’t ever want anyone to ever change it," Delevingne explained.

In April 2020, a source told People the two had split.

"Cara and Ashley always had their ups and downs before but it's over now," the source revealed. "Their relationship just ran its course.”

Shortly after the news broke, Benson was seen kissing rapper G-Eazy. At the time, a source told E! News, they weren’t dating.

"Ashley and G-Eazy aren't dating but are definitely hanging out and having fun right now. It's a good distraction for Ashley. They connected after working together recently, but have been friends for awhile now and also have a few mutual friends,” the source said.

But recently, there have been rumors their romance is heating up. Over Memorial Day Weekend, Benson and G-Eazy were spotted together in Malibu.

An eyewitness revealed, "They looked very happy together. They went from a rented place in Malibu to his place in the valley. They joked around with each other and looked affectionate."

Delevingne defended her ex’s new relationship on Instagram writing, "It's more important now than ever to spread love, not hate."

She added, "To everyone hating on @ashleybenson please stop. You don't know the truth, only her and I do and that's exactly how it should be."
