The ex-girlfriend of NFL star Travis Kelce has accused Taylor Swift fans of being 'hypocritical' after she was flooded with hate for commenting on their rumored relationship.
Neither star has commented on whether they're more than just friends, but Swifties have been sharing their excitement over the news of a potential new partner, with many desperate to learn everything they can about the NFL star.
The pair dated for eight months before breaking up when Kelce allegedly cheated on Benberry.
The former reality TV star has since opened up about her relationship with Kelce and urged Swift to 'be smart'.
"Taylor seems like such a fun girl with a beautiful spirit so I wish her the best of luck but I wouldn’t be a girls' girl if I didn’t advise her to be smart," she told the MailOnline.
"I’m sure by now she has mastered the ability to see who is really there for her - and who is just using her."
Benberry also told UNILAD she has no negative feelings towards Swift, saying: "I don’t nor will I ever have any ill intent or negative feelings towards Taylor or their relationship."
However, that hasn't stopped Benberry allegedly being targeted by Swifties who are unimpressed at her commenting on the relationship.
In an interview with Inside Edition, Benberry described certain Swift fans as being 'aggressive, very negative [and] very hypocritical'.
“It’s really crazy to me that someone I think is positive and really nice would have such a negative and angry fan base," she added.
Benberry went to point out that she doesn't 'know Taylor Swift', and insisted she's a 'fan of her music'.
"I don't feel any way about her dating Travis," she said.
“I’m not jealous or bitter about Taylor — she’s beautiful, she’s successful, we’re in two different lanes," Benberry added during the interview.
"My issue is more with Travis, in the sense of now you’re trying to turn me into a bitter person, or a liar, like I’m delusional, and I’m the furthest thing from that."
Following the release of the interview, Benberry took to X to say that she doesn't regret 'speaking [her] truth'.
