Ashley Benson was spotted in Los Angeles holding hands with rapper G-Eazy on Sunday. The photograph, showing them both in black shorts and sneakers, has aroused some speculation. Not to mention just earlier this month the two were seen kissing in their car on a take-out run from L.A. diner The Apple Pan.

Relationship rumors began to surface as the initial video went viral even though Benson liked an Instagram post denying that they were a couple. "You can't say they are dating just because of a like and some comments. Can't Ashley have friends now? STOP SAYING ASHLEY CHEATED! OR EVEN CARA! They just need friends right now more than ever," said @iloveabcd20.

Nonetheless, Benson seems to be moving on from ex-girlfriend Cara Delevigne, which has incited some hate from fans of the ex-couple. People are disappointed at the idea of the split, especially after the circulation of engagement rumors last year.

Delevingne posted an Instagram Story coming to Benson’s defense: “It’s more important now than ever to spread love, not hate. To everyone hating on @ashleybenson please stop. You don’t know the truth, only her and I do and that’s exactly how it should be.” Benson reposted the picture to her own story and tagged Delevingne with a heart emoji.
