New Couple Alert!
Another day, another celebrity couple announcement- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actress Chloe Bennet confirmed that she’s dating controversial YouTube star Logan Paul today on Twitter.
The revelation came after Bennet, 26, and Paul, 23, were seen kissing in one of Paul’s Instagram stories, and a fan tweeted at Bennet asking about their relationship. “Just wondering why you would [date Paul],” the fan wrote.
While the two have been rumored to be dating for a few months, Chloe confirmed their romance via Twitter on July 11. “Hey @chloebennet I’m seeing rumors you are dating lgan pul? just wondering why you would do that?” one fan asked. “Cause he’s kind, creative, funny, vibrantly curious about life, weird as f*ck in all the best ways, a big dork, and he’s one of my best friends,” Chloe fired back. “It doesn’t make sense to a lot of people, but it doesn’t have too. He’s changed my life for the better and I’ve done the same for him,” Chloe continued.
While we couldn’t be happier for Logan and Chloe’s relationship, we can understand why the fan is not ready to ship them as a couple. As many of you may know, Logan got quite a lot of backlash earlier this year for posting a video of a dead body he discovered while visiting Japan’s suicide forest, which got over 1 million views before being taken down. Things for the vlogger, who has more than 15 million subscribers, got so bad he suspended his YouTube channel, and well, things for him have been rocky ever since. At least now, he has a lady by his side, who he might marry!
In a series of Instagram stories from July 10, Chloe can be heard gushing over Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s engagement and teases Logan for not popping the question to her, according to The Blast. “All I know is Justin Bieber has been dating Hailey Baldwin for a fcking month, and she gets a fcking ring and an Instagram post!” Chloe said.
Logan then proceeded to kiss Chloe on the forehead. So, don’t be surprised if they get hitched in the near future!
“Cause he’s kind, creative, funny, vibrantly curious about life, weird as f— in all the best ways, a big dork, and he’s one of my best friends,” Bennet replied. “It doesn’t make sense to a lot of people, but it doesn’t have too. He’s changed my life for the better and I’ve done the same for him.”

Paul is a polarizing YouTube personality who came under fire for a video he posted earlier this year of his trip to Japan’s Aokigahara forest, colloquially known as the “suicide forest,” where he filmed an apparent suicide victim. The video resulted in Paul losing his partnership with YouTube, and he recently announced he’ll be making a documentary about the controversy.
Bennet played a recurring role in Nashville before being cast as a series regular on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in 2012.
However, just months after they unfollowed each other’s social media accounts, the rumored couple was spotted by fans showing some PDA during the Fourth of July holiday in Bennet’s hometown of Chicago.
Recent Instagram posts and stories shared by the pair also acknowledge that they are, to say the least, in very good terms.
