G-Eazy Finally Opens Up About Dating Ashley Benson: ‘She’s A Special One’:
G-Eazy is gushing over girlfriend Ashley Benson.
The rapper and the Pretty Little Liars alum have been linked for several months following her split from longtime GF Cara Delevingne. However, G-Eazy — real name Gerald Earl Gillum — hasn’t exactly been shouting their love from the rooftops.
But in a new chat with ET‘s Katie Krause (along with musical collaborator blackbear), the artist broke his silence — and spoke quite highly of his new girlfriend.
“She’s an exceptionally talented person in many different spaces,” he told the outlet. “She’s a special one. Obviously, she’s a great actress, but, you know, getting to work with her and putting her in front of a microphone and watching her sing so effortlessly, she has this very special tone of voice and texture and something that’s very innate to her given that’s not her first job or what she’s known for.”
He added, “It just blew me away that you can have such a hidden, special talent that the world doesn’t get to see as often.”
They’ve even worked on music together, though the 31-year-old rapper isn’t planning on releasing their collaborations anytime soon.
“[The songs] sound like what they sound like,” he said. “And they’re in my studio and, you know, maybe one day they’ll see the light of day, we’ll see,” he said.
G-Eazy Gushes About Girlfriend Ashley Benson:
Though he didn’t dive into what the songs are about, the Oakland-born rapper won’t be straying from discussing matters of the heart in his new project, hinting at tracks on “heartbreak,” possibly regarding ex-GF Halsey:
“I’ve experienced love in my life. I’ve experienced heartbreak in my life and caused heartbreak in my life and received heartbreak in my life. The power of music is to express and capture the human experience. We live and we experience things. Music for us is an outlet, a way to channel the things we go through and put into a tangible forum.”
However, he doesn’t want to make things “too autobiographical” — preferring to keep some things on the private side to keep them safe: “Even if you’re in love and sometimes you just want to preserve and protect somebody. … Just keeping some of that protected.”
G-Eazy and Benson, 30, sparked engagement rumors in August when the “Pretty Little Liars” star was seen wearing a sparkler on her left ring finger.
They’ve been linked as a couple since May when they were spotted locking lips and have since shown plenty of PDA. The next month she brought him as a date to her sister’s intimate wedding. That same month, she was also featured on his song “All the Things You’re Searching For,” and they’ve even collaborated on more music.
G-Eazy previously dated Halsey and was recently linked to Megan Thee Stallion.
Meanwhile, Benson dated model Cara Delevingne for two years before splitting up in May.
