Selena Gomez and Benny Blanco debuted their relationship in December 2023.

“Without getting into too much detail, I think it's just really important to meet someone who respects you,” she began.

“I think it's really nice to also lean on someone who understands the world that I live in,” she said of Blanco, who she has been publicly dating since their Instagram debut in December 2023. “I'd have to say overall it's the safest that I feel and it's been really lovely and I've only grown through it, so it's awesome.”
