Benjamin and Bella made their relationship Instagram official in June 2019. They were first spotted together that April, which is the same month that Bella announced that she and rapper Mod Sun had called it quits.  

According to PopBuzz, the internet was a bit confused when Benjamin and Bella first appeared together on Instagram. Soon afterward, there was a spike in Google searches for Bella Thorne and Machine Gun Kelly, indicating that a large number of people were mistaking Benjamin for the platinum-haired rapper with similarly chiseled cheekbones.   

Benjamin & Bella Acted Together

 

Benjamin and Bella spent a lot of time together in a romantic location last year. As reported by Variety, they were cast as the romantic leads in a movie titled Time Is Up. The drama began shooting in Rome last November with director Elisa Amoruso at its helm.

Benjamin's character is described as a "troubled young man," while Bella plays a bright high school student who is into physics. Opposites will most likely attract and sparks will fly as fans get to see more of Bella and Benjamin's smoldering chemistry. 

There was also plenty of romance going on behind the scenes. In his Instagram stories, Benjamin showed off a love note that he wrote for Bella on the back of the last page of her movie script.

Bella made headlines when she dated Mod Sun and YouTube star Tana Mongeau at the same time, making her one of the few celebrities in Hollywood to be openly polyamorous. As reported by Yahoo! Entertainment, she found another lady love a few months after she and Benjamin began dating, and he was totally cool with it. 

In October 2019, Bella, who identifies as pansexual, took to Instagram to reveal that she was dating a woman she described as "camera shy." After she shared a pic of herself and her girlfriend looking cozy, Benjamin commented, "You girls are cute."

According to Bella, her husband-to-be is one hell of a catch.

"I got so lucky with my Ben," she told Entertainment Tonight. "He's really just the perfect specimen and I honestly don't know how I got so blessed with him."
