While you may see Ashley Benson spending a good bit of time talking or hanging around with various people in Hollywood, there is apparently one thing you must remember: Just because she is spotted with someone that doesn’t mean that she is dating them. At all. As a matter of fact, it probably means nothing more often than not, given that she is a young actress trying to live her life and have fun.
Speaking to The Huffington Post about the myriad of dating rumors that have followed her around over the years, including some that link her co-star on the ABC Family drama in Tyler Blackburn, the actress had the following to say about taking on all of the gossip (and also doing her best to deflect most of it):
“Every time I’m hanging out with Tyler [Blackburn], Keegan [Allen], my friend Isaac, my friends who are girls, I’m dating all of them. It’s very strange. I have a new boyfriend, a new girlfriend every week. But I’m single and I don’t have a boyfriend.”
At the moment, one of the primary reasons why Benson may be embracing her single status is simply because it is so hard to find time for relationships when you’re the star of a crazy popular show. She is in the process still of filming season 4 of “Pretty Little Liars” (which is very time-consuming in itself), and in between that and trying to cram in some promotional gigs and appearances, there’s not really room for anything else.
Just because Ashley is not dating Blackburn in real life, though, does not mean that the two have anything less than a super-supportive and friendly relationship.
