Delevingne’s post came hours after Benson, 30, and the “No Limit” rapper, also 30, were seen kissing in Los Angeles. The Daily Mail published a video of the rumored new couple locking lips in the actress’ car on Thursday while picking up take-out food.
Benson and G-Eazy (real name Gerald Gillum) were previously spotted together at the L.A. store Lassens Natural Food & Vitamins on Sunday, May 10. They also teamed up to record a cover of Radiohead’s hit “Creep,” which the hip-hop star released via SoundCloud and YouTube on April 22.

Us Weekly confirmed on May 6 that Delevingne and Benson had called it quits on their nearly two-year romance. The former couple were first spotted together in August 2018, when they shared a kiss at Heathrow Airport in London. The notoriously private English star finally confirmed their relationship in June 2019 as they celebrated their one-year anniversary.
“She is one of the people that helped me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it,” Delevingne said on stage at the TrevorLIVE gala at the time. “She showed me what real love is and showed me how to accept it, which was a lot harder than I thought. I love you, Sprinkles.”

Delevingne previously dated singer St. Vincent and actress Michelle Rodriguez, while Benson had an on-off relationship with Justin Bieber’s friend Ryan Good. G-Eazy, for his part, famously dated his “Him & I” collaborator Halsey.
