Are Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens dating?

Probably not. Ashley and Vanessa have never confirmed that they are dating and the two have previously been seen sharing kisses as friends.

Ashley and Vanessa have worked together on Spring Breakers, a 2012 movie with Selena Gomez which follows three college students fund their Florida holiday by robbing a diner.

Other than their mutual movie project, Ashley and Vanessa’s friendship seems to be more virtual these days and they haven’t been seen on recent events or on the red carpet together.

Back in February, Ashley shared a picture with her co-stars from Spring Breakers, Vanessa, Selena and Rachel Korine, and wrote:

“Seven years ago today we flew to Berlin for the premiere of #springbreakers. We all got sick at one point and this night @rachel.korine was stuck in her hotel room and had to miss the premiere. We did have a good time getting there.”

Most recently, Vanessa was rumoured to be in a relationship with MLB player Cole Tucker.
