Here’s everything you need to know about Benny Blanco, Selena Gomez’s new boyfriend.
Following both the release of her song Single Soon and pointing out several times that she was single, singer and actress Selena Gomez has confirmed that she is in a relationship with Benny Blanco.
The Rare Beauty founder, who is said to be worth around $800 million, commented, “He is my absolute everything in my heart,” in response to an Instagram post confirming her relationship with Blanco, whose real name is Benjamin Joseph Levin.
