Selena Gomez is adding fuel to the fire of a new serious relationship with Benny Blanco, flaunting a ring that has fans going wild.

Selena Gomez On The Road To Getting Married?!
Gomez intensified the dating stories by flaunting a diamond ring wrapped around her perfectly wedding ring finger on her social media. The jewelry featured a letter B, seemingly representing Blanco’s name, and came in a serpent style with a little diamond stone occupying the lower section.
Gomez’s latest stunt comes after she affirmed the shocking rumor by writing “Facts” in the comment section of a gossip account that hinted that the “Neon Lights” singer is dating the producer.
The post was uploaded on December 4, and featured some slides where Gomez might have hinted at the relationship in the past, including a clip of her admitting she has a crush on someone during an episode of her show, “Selena + Chef: Home for the Holidays.”
Gomez also gave a shout-out to Blanco’s cookbook, saying, “One of my favs releasing a cookbook.” She, however, didn’t stop at her first remarks as she went to the comment section under one of her fan pages, stating that Blano is “my absolute everything in my heart.”

Gomez sure had her hands full and proceeded to check fans who had reservations about her relationship with the “East Side” producer, calling him “the best thing that ever happened” to her.
“lol yeah, and he’s still better than anyone I’ve ever been with. Facts. I don’t understand. If you actually care about me. This is my happiest. 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.” the actress wrote in her clap back to the haters.
Finally, she posted an intimate picture of herself resting on the producer’s shoulder. Gomez is no stranger to dating celebrities; her exes include The Weeknd, Zedd, Nick Jonas, and Justin Bieber, whom she dated for almost a decade.
All About Benny Blanco
Aside from being Gomez’s new man, Blanco has created a name for himself in the music industry while grabbing a few awards on the way, including five BMI Songwriter of the Year Awards and the 2017 iHeartRadio Producer of the Year Award.
The award-winning producer, whose real name is Benjamin Joseph Levin, was born in Reston, Vancouver, in March 1988. Blanco confirmed to the New York Times in 2018 that his father, Andrew Mark Levin, ran an “intimate apparel business” while his mother, Sandra Beth Levin, worked in assisted living.
Blanco’s journey into music had him sleeping on couches and hopping on calls with label owners pretending to be Jay-Z’s lawyer. He has since progressed immensely by working with Britney Spears, Ed Sheeran, Halsey, Rihanna, Justin Beiber, Ed Sheeran and many more talents in the industry.
Blanco soon ventured into singing and released his debut album “Friends Keep Secrets” the same year. He also owns two record labels, one named after his debut album and the other called Mad Love Records.
The “Unlearn” singer has kept his love life a secret over the years but was rumored to be with model Elise Hewitt in 2021 following a tweet that read, “I have a girlfriend. She Simply attends a different school.”
Gomez and Blanco are no strangers to each other and have previously worked on a project with J Balvin and Tainy in 2019 titled “I Can’t Get Enough.” He has also co-written a few songs with the “Wizards Of Waverly Place” actress, including “Same Old Love” and “Kill Em With Kindness” in 2015 and her recently released hit “Single Soon.”
Blanco is also connected to Bieber and has been friends with the “Baby” singer since 2009. He even described him as a “good dude with a good heart and one of the best pop voices ever” in his interview with Variety in 2021.
