Typically, ex-boyfriends and current boyfriends don’t mix, but that’s not the case in Benny Blanco and Selena Gomez’s relationship. For years (and even to this day), Gomez has been tied to her on-and-off ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber. The former couple dated from 2010 up until 2018, and have a whirlwind history with one another. Even so, Gomez’s beau, Blanco, is good friends with Bieber.

Blanco and Bieber’s friendship started just a year before the “Baby” singer started dating Gomez, per Variety. Talking about his friendship with the Canadian popstar, Blanco shared with Variety in 2021, “We’ve been working since 2009. I have seen this kid in every state … We grow and learn in the best and worst times. He’s a good dude with a good heart.” Blanco and Bieber have collaborated on several hit tracks, including the 2010 song “Eenie Meenie” and the 2021 track “Lonely.”

Many even believe that Blanco threw shade at Gomez while working with Bieber. When speaking with Zach Sang about their “Lonely” collaboration, Blanco shared, “Justin is not one of those cookie-cutter pop artists. You know, they’re like, ‘This is my new single, and here’s my makeup line,’ but Justin’s like, ‘Yo, I have a pimple and I have anxiety.'” Many thought he was being shady to Gomez, who had just launched her Rare Beauty line. Between his friendship with Bieber and the possible shade, many find it weird that Blanco is now dating Gomez.
