Cara Delevingne confirms she's been dating Ashley Benson for a year

Cara Delevingne has revealed that she's been dating with Pretty Little Liars Ashley Benson for the past year.

The two women had been rumoured to be an item for many months, but only made their relationship Instagram-official a few days ago, after Cara posted a video of her kissing Ashley in the movie Her Smell, in which they co-starred together.

Taking to the red carpet while attending the TrevorLIVE Gala on Monday night in New York City, Cara spilled the beans on her and Ashley, in a candid statement made to reporters covering the event, revealing that she had important reasons to end the speculation.

Cara told reporters "I don't know [if it's] because it is Pride, it's been 50 years since Stonewall happened and I don't know ... It's been just about our one year anniversary so, why not?"

She later acknowledged the special role Ashley played in her life, in a speech made while accepting the Hero award at the gala, telling the crowd assembled crowd: "I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are. She's one of the people who helped me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought."
