The pair were first linked in April after they were spotted kissing at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif. Benson was previously in a serious relationship with Justin Bieber's "swagger coach" Ryan Good. "I've always been in relationships," Benson said in Seventeen's April 2013 issue.

Benson added that she would be open to dating again if the right person came along. "If it happens, it happens. I'm 23 -- I could have a boyfriend tomorrow. But relationships are scary, because once you're in one, you have to face the idea of breaking up or staying together forever," she explained. "It's scary."
