Musician Selena Gomez has dropped a bomb on her fans with a cryptic Instagram story, subtly confirming her rumored romance with record producer Benny Blanco. While the dating rumors were already gaining traction in the headlines, neither Gomez nor Blanco directly commented on it.
The speculation first rose when she liked and commented on a fan post on Instagram that featured a black-and-white photo of her and Blanco. Responding to two different comments on the same post, she wrote, “He has treated me better than any human being on this planet,” and “He’s still better than anyone I’ve ever been with. Facts.”

Selena Gomez slammed a social media user on the same account, addressing the criticism they threw at the dating rumors. “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 [m]y life at all,” she wrote in another comment.
A few days down the line, Gomez posted an Instagram story where she is seemingly embracing a man whose face is not entirely visible. The black and white picture, however, gives away enough of Blanco’s face for the fans to recognize it is him. So even when the couple has not officially confirmed their relationship yet, fans are convinced the two are dating.
