Love life and relationships
There are rumors circulating the internet about Benji being gay, as he’s uploaded many ‘gay videos’ with his best friend onto his TikTok account.

Benji has since stated on all of his accounts on social media networks that he is straight, and it’s known that he is currently in a relationship with a girl known as Jadyn Cothern.
The two have been together for over a year now, and often upload pictures of themselves together onto their Instagram accounts, however, many people still believe that the two are only pretending to be together, as the youtube.fandom.com website states how Benji is bisexual, and is currently dating his best friend JeyJey Gardi.
