The photos of Cara Delevingne kissing Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson got attention — including some from the British model and actress’s ex-girlfriend Paris Jackson.

Paris took to Twitter on Wednesday to seemingly comment on those photos, which showed the couple making out outside London’s Heathrow Airport while waiting for a cab — with Ashley wearing a “C” necklace. “Welp. She makes you happy so … Whatever makes you happy,” wrote Paris, 20. She followed up with a second post that said, “Girls. SMH,” as in “shaking my head.”



After all, it was only recently that the world wondered whether Paris and Cara would be making their relationship red carpet official. They had started spending time together last year, and in March, Paris and the 26-year-old Suicide Squad actress were photographed kissing in the street during a double date with Paris’s godfather, Macaulay Culkin, and his girlfriend, Brenda Song. Their first red carpet was supposedly going to happen at the Met Gala on May 7. It didn’t.

In June, Paris, also a model and actress, confirmed that she and Cara had a thing but noted that they were “never officially exclusive.” At the time, she denied she was dating Ashley, whom she referred to as “Miss Benzo,” as well as her “straight” and “married” friend Caroline D’Amore.


Much has been made of Paris’s sexuality, but she also addressed that in July on social media. After a fan asked if she was “bi,” she replied on her Instagram Story, “That’s what you guys call it so i guess but who needs labels.” She used a second post to clarify her comments, writing, “I came out when I was 14. … I’ve referred to the community as ‘my fellow LGBTQ+’ on stage before. I’ve talked about having a crush on girls when i was 8 in my Rolling Stone article. There are pictures of me kissing girls online. why are people just now saying this is news?”

So what do we know about Cara’s romance with Ashley, 28? Welp … it first became buzzed about after they were photographed together at a Lauryn Hill concert on May 1. Yes, the week before Cara and Paris attended the Met Gala separately. They’ve been seen together several times since, but this is their real PDA debut.

We also now know that Paris is coping with the development — with a head shake or two.
