Benson was most recently linked to rapper G-Eazy. Before that, she dated actress and model Cara Delevingne for two years.

Shortly after their breakup, Benson opened up to Cosmopolitan UK about the scrutiny she faced when it came to her dating life and why she prefers to keep relationships private.

"The most annoying part is having to sit back and be quiet while everybody talks about you and you have to deal with it," she said. "People can say whatever they want about me, but unless you know me, you don't really know anything at all."

She also said she finds it hard to deal with "people's opinions" of her relationships.

"If gossip comes out and stories are completely false, what can you do?" she said. "I'm not going to sit out there and be like, 'This isn't true, this is what's really happening.'"

"I usually keep my relationships private," she continued. "You obviously can't help if you get photographed together. [But] it's more sacred that way. Those private moments are for you and your partner, and I think it's best not to be over-exposed, and you can really protect your relationship if you're not exploiting it."
