Benson, 32, called it quits with the rapper (real name: Gerald Earl Gillum) last February after dating for nearly a year, “and the last thing she needs is this guy back in her life,” scoffs the insider. “When she’s with him, she parties more and stays out later, and he just takes all her bad habits up a notch.”
The Pretty Little Liars alum broke up with G-Eazy, 32, “because he wasn’t fully committed. But there’s still no sign that he is in it for the long haul, so the whole situation is just very unhealthy for her,” adds the insider.
While Bensons is telling friends that she isn’t taking the party-hard rapper seriously this time around, “there’s major concern that history is going to repeat itself,” the insider continues. “But Ashley won’t listen to anyone — and is playing with fire all over again!”
As OK! previously reported, the pair first sparked reconciliation rumors in late December, and they were seen hiking together in L.A. one month later.
The Bring It On: In It To Win It star and the "Me, Myself & I" rapper were spotted masked-up as they met up for a leisurely hike in Griffith Park on Wednesday, January 26. Benson and G-Eazy both sported casual 'fits with the rapper in a black t-shirt, black shorts, hiking boots and a pair of shades, while the Pixels actress was photographed in a white sweatshirt, black yoga pants and sunglasses.
The possible rekindled flames worked up an appetite on their afternoon excursion, as they followed up their hike with a lunch date at The Oaks Gourmet Market & Cafe.
