Sorry if this is news to you, but everyone’s fave Puerto Rican rapper Benito Ocasio (aka Bad Bunny) is v much off the market—and he has been for nearly five years now. And while it’s not clear whether they’re married, engaged, or just dating rn, it is clear that Bad Bunny and Gabriela Berlingeri are the real deal. The two first had a meet-cute at a restaurant back in 2017, and although it took them nearly three years (!!) to go public with their relationship, fans are very glad they finally did (except for the ones who wish they were dating Bad Bunny themselves, ofc).

So who exactly is Bad Bunny’s girlfriend? Gabriela is a singer and jewelry designer, and she launched her first jewelry line, DiciembreVeintinueve (D29), back in 2020. (Side note: Her stuff is majorly chic—and surprisingly affordable!) And while she and Benito tend to keep their relationship on the DL, here’s what we do know about their five-year romance, including all the engagement, marriage, and cheating rumors along the way.
