Breaking Down Ashley Benson and Cara Delevingne’s Whirlwind Romance — See the Timeline!

Whether you refer to them as “Dash,” “Cashley, “Carley,” or any variation that expertly combines their two names, Ashley Benson and Cara Delevingne were easily one of Hollywood’s most beloved celebrity couples before their breakup.

Unfortunately, sometimes good things must come to an end. On Wednesday, May 6, news broke that the couple split up after two years of dating. They ended their relationship sometime in April while quarantining, a source tells Life & Style.

The former flames had been going strong for quite a while before the shocking split. Even when it was believed they cut ties in December 2019, after what seemed to be hackers falsely tweeting the two had broken up, they later proved they were in a good place with sweet Instagram posts.

Regardless of what went down in their relationship, one thing is for sure: the two shared a very special connection. “I’d never truly let anyone in before, for fear of them leaving,” Cara told Porter in September 2019. “I never really trusted people or felt worthy of it, and I always pushed them away. She’s the first person that has said: ‘You can’t push me away. I’m going to be nice to you, I love you.’ I’m just like, ‘Wait, so all I have to do is just let you be nice to me? Why have I never done that before?'”

If that’s not the most heartwarming thing you’ve ever read, we don’t know what is. Needless to say, we’re going to keep hoping for a reunion. So much so, that every now and again we like to take a stroll down memory lane to see where Ashley and Cara’s whirlwind romance began!
