Selena Gomez Reacts to Rumors She’s Dating Music Producer Benny Blanco

The post includes a clip of Selena admitting she has a crush during an episode of Selena + Chef: Home for the Holidays. “I also have a crush on someone, so I’m kind of really happy,” she said in the episode, which was likely filmed a few months ago. A screenshot of Sel supporting the release of Benny’s new cookbook was also featured in another slide.

“Lol yeah and he’s still better than anyone I’ve ever been with. Facts,” Sel added.

She also clapped back at criticism with another comment. “I don’t understand. If you actually care about me. This is my happiest,” she started. “If you don’t feel free to say whatever you want. But I will never allow your words to guide my life. Ever. I’m done. if you can’t accept me at my happiest then don’t be in [my] life at all.”

Aside from Selena’s Instagram comments, there’s no confirmation about the current status of her ‘ship with Benny.
