Rumors have swirled for months that Ashley Benson and boyfriend Ryan Good broke up, and sadly, the news is true — the couple of more than a year is dunzo.

In her cover interview with Seventeen magazine, she confirmed their split, revealing that it wasn’t easy, but ultimately, she needed to be comfortable being single.

“I’ve always been in relationships, and I knew I needed to learn to be comfortable alone,” she admitted, adding that it wasn’t an easy process, but they remain friends. "Anytime you go through a breakup, it's rough. Ryan and I are still close, but I'm too young to be in a serious relationship.”

However, that didn’t stop her from finding a new boyfriend! While she doesn't confirm that her new beau is Spring Breakers co-star James Franco, she did exclaim, “Work is my boyfriend!” Fooled us, Ash.

Ultimately, she knows that she could fall in love any day now, but she remains cautious.

"If it happens, it happens. I'm 23 — I could have a boyfriend tomorrow,” she noted. “But relationships are scary, because once you're in one, you have to face the idea of breaking up or staying together forever. It’s scary.”
