Standard-Freeholder (Cornwall) - - SPORTS | CLASSIFIEDS -

Agents Of S.h.i.e.l.d. star Chloe Ben­net has con­firmed re­ports she’s dat­ing con­tro­ver­sial YouTube star Lo­gan Paul.

The 26-year-old ac­tress broke the news on Wed­nes­day while re­spond­ing to a fan, who asked her if the ro­mance ru­mors were true on Twit­ter.

“Hey @chloeben­net I’m see­ing ru­mors you are dat­ing l*gan p*ul? Just won­der­ing why you would do that,” the fol­lower tweeted, prompt­ing Ben­net to re­spond: “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.”

She added: “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, 23, also replied to the fan’s tweet, writ­ing: “Hold on one sec­ond now. I haven’t con­firmed any­thing. But. If I had the chance to date this so called ‘Chloe’ girl, I would be an ex­tremely lucky young man.”

The pair sparked ro­mance ru­mours ear­lier this month af­ter Ben­net re­sponded to one of so­cial me­dia star Paul’s com­ments on­line, sug­gest­ing the pair was hang­ing out.

Paul wrote: “If I had one wish right now I would wish that every ham­ster in the world would get their own per­sonal fanny pack,” prompt­ing Ben­net to re­spond: “You can’t just steal stuff that I say dur­ing lunch and then tweet it out and act like it’s your own, that’s MY WISH LO­GAN. GET YOUR OWN DUMB WISH.”

He fired back: “Stop try­ing to cause drama and let the ham­ster have their fkn fanny packs.”

“Fine. I’ll let this one go. For the ham­sters. BUT from now on, I’m call­ing you out for all the jokes you steal from me,” she added. “Also, stop star­ing at me while I try and type this out I can’t con­cen­trate, it’s mak­ing ner­vous.”

The pair hooked up while film­ing Valley Girl and were re­cently spot­ted kiss­ing.

“We woke up to­day and we were plastered all over the in­ter­net with pic­tures like this,” Paul shared, be­fore dis­play­ing pho­tos of the cou­ple mak­ing out. “I’m very trans­par­ent. Chloe and I are friends, for sure. In my opin­ion, friends some­times make out.”

“They touch butts,” the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star added. “I kiss all my friends.”

Paul is cur­rently shoot­ing a doc­u­men­tary about the fall­out from his ill-ad­vised de­ci­sion to shoot a vlog post from Ja­pan’s Aoki­ga­hara Sui­cide For­est, where peo­ple have taken their own lives and over­dosed on drugs. He has since apol­o­gized for his ac­tions.
