Selena Gomez has officially confirmed her romantic involvement with producer Benny Blanco, putting an end to weeks of speculation surrounding their relationship. The Rare Beauty founder took to social media to address the rumors and defend her newfound happiness, despite facing online backlash from some fans. 

Social Media Confirmation: The confirmation came as Gomez liked a post on the celebrity news fan account PopFaction, which shared a carousel of images and clips seemingly confirming the relationship. Gomez, commenting on the post on December 7th, wrote “facts,” validating the swirling rumors about her and the producer. 

Clapback Against Trolls: As news of the confirmation spread, Gomez found herself facing criticism from certain fans who deemed Blanco “unworthy” of her. In response, the singer-actor did not hold back, defending her relationship and expressing her happiness. She wrote, “I don’t understand. If you actually care about me. This is my happiest…I will never allow your words to guide my life. If you can’t accept me at my happiest then don’t be in [my] life at all.” 

Gomez’s Assertion of Bliss: In further replies to critics, Gomez emphasized Blanco’s positive impact on her life. She stated, “He has treated me better than any human being on this planet. He is my absolute everything in my heart.” Gomez continued to address the trolls, asserting her right to make choices that bring her joy and declaring that Blanco is the best thing that has ever happened to her. 

History and Supportive Interactions: Gomez and Blanco have a history of collaboration, having worked together on the song “I Can’t Get Enough” in 2019. The producer was also present at Gomez’s Inaugural Rare Impact Fund Benefit in October 2023, supporting youth mental health. Their recent interactions on social media, coupled with Gomez’s mother Mandy Teefey following Blanco on Instagram, fueled speculation leading up to the official confirmation. 

Swift Connection and Online Banter: Blanco’s presence at Gomez’s charity event included placing bids on tickets for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, adding another layer to their connection. The couple engaged in online banter, with Gomez defending Blanco against online criticism and playfully encouraging fans to ask her questions. 

Growing Together: In a poignant response, Gomez addressed those who criticized her choices as “misguided input” and emphasized her growth and commitment to self-discovery. She declared, “I’m not going to be with a f***boy ever again. Sorry to disappoint.” 

As Selena Gomez takes charge of her narrative and embraces her happiness with Benny Blanco, the confirmation of their relationship serves as a declaration of personal agency and a refusal to let online negativity overshadow her joy.
