Selena Gomez and Benny Blanco made their first official public appearance as a couple last night at the Los Angeles Lakers vs Miami Heat basketball game. The two were spotted getting cozy courtside, packing on the PDA for the cameras.

Background on Selena and Benny’s Budding Romance

Romance rumors about Selena and Benny first sparked in late 2022 when they were spotted leaving the same restaurant in Los Angeles. At the time, sources claimed they were “just friends.” However, their body language last night indicates much more than a platonic relationship.

The two musicians have reportedly been secretly dating for the last few months. They bonded over their shared love of songwriting and producing. Benny has written smash hits for major artists like Ed Sheeran and Halsey, while Selena recently stepped into the production side with her Spanish language EP “Revelación.”

They kept things very private up until this first official date night. Some sources claim they did not want to go public until they were sure the relationship had long-term potential.

Courtside PDA

Selena, 31, and Benny, 33, snuggled close together while watching the game. The duo was smiling ear to ear and frequently stopped paying attention to the game to chat and laugh together.

At one point, Benny was seen with his arm tightly wrapped around Selena’s shoulders. The rare show of PDA is very unlike the normally private singer and actress.

Benny showed off his quirky reputation by shockingly slipping off his shoes at one point during the game. While Selena seemed amused and smiled at her beau, sports fans on Twitter roasted Benny for the move:

Overall though, it was clear from their romantic body language that the two are head over heels for each other. The short PDA breaks from the game showed two giddy, enamored lovebirds in the early stages of a relationship.

Fashion Face-Off

In addition to packing on the PDA, Selena and Benny’s courtside fashion drew significant attention.

While Benny kept things simple in a leather jacket, black jeans, and Yankees cap, Selena made a high fashion statement with her game night outfit.

She sported a David Koma cutout knit maxi dress worth $1,195 along with a Balenciaga hourglass jacket costing around $2,750. She finished the designer look with $270 Alexander Wang boots.

Meanwhile, Benny’s choice of a simple R13 NY Yankees leather jacket rang in at $975.

While fans had mixed reactions to Benny’s barefoot move, most agreed that Selena clearly won the fashion face-off between the new “it” couple.

What’s Next for the New Couple?

Sources say Selena and Benny are keeping things “fun and light” for now. They have bonded over music and it sounds like a collaboration could be in store down the line.

Benny told People Magazine last year:

“Selena is one of the most talented human beings I’ve ever met. She can sing, act, produce, write songs better than most out there. Working with her would be a treat.”

Perhaps we will be seeing Benny Blanco producer credits on SG3 whenever Selena gets around to releasing her long-awaited third studio album.

For now, the world will be keeping watch on Selena and Benny’s budding romance. Last night was just a glimpse at the cute couple and we expect to see them out together much more in 2024!
