Those who disapproved of the couple's romance aired their grievances days earlier when Gomez finally addressed her relationship with Blanco. The singer confirmed her relationship with the comment “Facts” underneath a post about the duo's romance.

She also praised Blanco, claiming: “He is my absolute everything in my heart.” Unfortunately, not everyone shared her sentiments, with some fans criticizing her new beau. The mean comments forced the 31-year-old to vehemently clap back, warning haters to leave her man alone.

“Then why has he been the best thing that ever happened to me. The end,” Gomez fired back at a troll. “Lol, yeah, and he’s still better than anyone I’ve ever been with. Facts,” she responded to another before penning a lengthy retort that read:

“I don’t understand. If you actually care about me. This is my happiest. If you don’t, feel free to say whatever you want. But I will never allow your words to guide my life. Ever. I’m done. If you can’t accept me at my happiest, then don’t be in [my] life at all.”

Did Selena Gomez & Benny Blanco Take Their Relationship To New Heights?

Days after confirming the dating rumors, the “Wizards of Waverly Place” star caused a stir on social media by debuting a diamond ring on her wedding finger. Gomez sparked speculations after sharing the accessory that symbolized a deeper bond than fans expected.

The jewelry featured the letter B, seemingly representing her boyfriend's name. Its design consisted of a serpent-style band coiled perfectly around the entertainer's ring finger, with a little diamond stone occupying the lower section.

This move sent her followers wild, with many wondering if the accessory signified a possible walk down the aisle. Before meeting Blanco, the 31-year-old had dated famous faces in the industry, including The Weeknd, Zedd, Nick Jonas, and Justin Bieber, whom she dated for almost a decade and Selenators hoped would lead to a marriage.

Like her exes, Blanco, whose real name is Benjamin Joseph Levin, has made a name for himself in the music industry. His achievements include the 2017 iHeartRadio Producer of the Year Award and five BMI Songwriter of the Year Awards.

The 35-year-old's journey into music saw him sleeping on couches and hopping on calls with label owners pretending to be Jay-Z’s lawyer. Following these trials, Blanco became recognized for his talents working with megastars like Britney Spears, Ed Sheeran, Rihanna, and more.
