In case you hadn’t heard, Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson (Hanna) has started dating her Spring Breakers co-star James Franco. They were even spotted together getting their PDA on recently. But how long has their relationship really been going on?

So far, there are two conflicting reports. The NY Post, who was the first to report the new couple, stated that Ashley and James have been together for a little over a month. But in a new report from RadarOnline, a source claims that Ashley told her then-boyfriend Ryan Good that she wanted to “slow down” right after filming for Spring Breakers stopped. Well, that was back in March.

So which timeline is accurate? It’s also possible that Ashley told Ryan she wanted to take a break while the movie was filming (also when she started hanging out with James), and then started casually dating James all summer. It could be that the new couple only became official and ready to go public about a month ago.

And really, what’s wrong with a long courtship these days?
