A source tells Life & Style magazine the pair called it quits sometime last month, while Delevingne was self-isolating with friends and family during the coronavirus lockdowns. The insider claimed Delevingne and the Pretty Little Liars alum were experiencing relationship problems prior to the breakup, but "the quarantine didn’t help — it pushed them to split."
"No one wanted it to be true. They were great together — a dynamic duo — and everyone loved having them around. That’s why this is so hard," the source said. "Ashley and Cara are moving on, but their friends are really heartbroken, too. What can you do? They had a good run, and now it’s time to move on. Hopefully, they can remain friends."
The insider goes on to say there were no signs of infidelity, but Delevingne was leaning into the breakup more so then Benson.
"I don’t think there was a third party involved," the source added. "I do know that it wasn’t an easy decision."
Delevingne and Benson ignited dating rumors back in 2018, when they were spotted kissing on multiple occasions. Delevingne publicly confirmed the relationship in June of last year, when she explained her decision to post a video of her and Benson's makeout session.
"I don't know because it is Pride, it's been 50 years since Stonewall happened and I don't know," she told E! "It's been just about our one-year anniversary so, why not?"
