While Eiza and Ben have yet to confirm their relationship, the outlet reported that they have been dating for "a few months." The insider additionally told the publication, "They've been hiding and trying not to get seen [together]."

Of the reason for their split, an insider has elaborated that the pair were heartbroken to have to end things but just couldn't make their schedules align. A source told The New York Post, "It's been a difficult time for them. While they both care for each other so much, they truly gave it their all and realize that they just come from two different worlds. They now understand they don't have the time they thought to dedicate to this relationship."
