Bella Thorne And Benjamin Mascolo Breakup After A One-year Engagement
Bella Thorne and Benjamin Mascolo’s romance appears to have shattered.
Benjamin appeared to corroborate the news with his statement shortly after a People report broke that the Shake It Up actress and her fiancé had ended their one-year engagement. The Italian singer mused about meeting “the most beautiful human being” three years ago in an Instagram post on June 2, saying it’s been a “humbling pleasure to develop with her by my side.”
“Only God knows how many hearts I’ve shattered and how many people I’ve wounded selfishly following my ego, of all the things I could and should have done better, and for that, I take full responsibility,” he wrote. “But I know now it was all part of a broader plan that lead me to where I am now.” “I am now ready for a new chapter in my life and have entire faith in what is meant to be; above all, I chose the path of truth.”
“Falling in love is the most beautiful gift we can experience in life,” Benjamin concluded. “Relationships are born and die, just like individuals; it’s the natural cycle of life, and I accept that.”
He said, “It was meant to be, and it turned out to be stunning. I simply desire the best for this character, and I will be there for her at all times.”
Bella, 24, and Benjamin, 28, were engaged in March 2021 after the Italian singer proposed with a big pear-shaped diamond ring. The pair announced their good news on social media at the moment, along with a video of Bella’s frank reaction to the proposal.
“Yay! We’re about to tie the knot. “There’s a celebration in both Italy and America,” Benjamin stated in the video, prompting Bella to add, “Yes.” I adore you to death. Kiss me now.”
The actress later bought Benjamin his engagement ring to commemorate their relationship milestone. Benjamin flaunted the jewelry piece in a now-deleted Instagram photo, which included diamonds embedded on an interlocking T-shaped gold band.
“She got me an engagement ring,” he captioned a shot of Bella kissing his left hand with the jewelry on his finger.
After terminating her open relationship with YouTuber Tana Mongeau and musician Mod Sun in 2019, Bella was initially linked to Benjamin in 2019. The two made their Instagram debut in June of that year, when the former Disney Channel star published two photos of herself on a boat with the artist.
“I’m really happy w you,” she captioned the photos alongside an emoji of a blue heart.
Since then, the two have starred together in the romantic comedy Time Is Up, which will be released in 2021. Benjamin says he and Bella “became even more in love” on set while promoting the picture together.
He told TooFab, “We came out on the other side and we were stronger as a pair.” “It was a win-win situation in every way.”
