So BB I think Doug is way cooler than you. He is drunkenly dancing and singing with your girl and is all over her insta. She has clearly moved on from your boring British, weird ways. Oh where is the album? Or is that another lie?

In true stalkerish fashion, and due to the absence of the IG Sleuth, I’ve screen-recorded who he’s following so that I can definitively see in future who’s dropped or added. It’s annoying me that I don’t know who’s been dropped!! (Don’t ask me why I care but I do for some inexplicable reason).

R1 but is Doug gay? Unfortunately I don’t think he’s enough to take JH off BB’s hands. She’s probably going to make a stop at his house as soon as she gets off the plane and drag him out on an athleasure walk so she can remind LA he’s still her little lion cub 🦁

I want to know what happened to Chike. His account disappeared a couple days ago. However, between Ben, Rob and Jack, nobody's follow counts dropped. Ben's went down yesterday, the others didn't change other than Rob's increasing yesterday. Weren't they all mutual follows previously? Did that change? I've checked other posts, like below as an example, where he should be tagged, but no longer is. Which makes me think it wasn't a simple name change.

R5 I truly couldn’t stomach another pap walk of those two. JH is so fakily flirty in that ice cream pap it made me heave. Yeah bring out the big guns!
R6 R7 Yes Chike’s definitely still around - his account suddenly disappeared months & months ago but then reappeared a while back, but I had to refollow. Actually that could be a reason that BB’s following count went down one, it could be that someone deactivated their account rather than him unfollowing someone.
R9 Close IG then go back in and try again, it’s played some tricks on me before.
|by Anonymous||reply 11||July 13, 2021 1:33 AM|
Yeah verified accounts are required to be public so I’m pretty sure they would have to do something like deactivate or block to kick someone out of their following, but it’s definitely possible Ben just lost a follow from another deactivated account as well.

I suggest simply making a new Instagram account to find Chike if you really want to. It’s either a glitch or you are blocked. The cynical side of me thinks you may even know Chike personally and got blocked for a reason a couple days ago and didn’t know it and came on here to figure it out and don’t want him to see this and think someone he knows is posting here because he’s able to view his recently blocked accounts. Even if you are blocked you should still be able to see his account by typing in the FULL chike1 into search, you just wouldn’t see any content. People can see who viewed their story but they can’t see who simply visited their profile (luckily lol)

Chike has given data lounge more discussion points in the last few hours than Ben has all week. The fan girls are going to start calling for a proof of life video soon if Ben doesn’t throw them another bone and sing something to them again ASAP. It’s genuinely amazing one of the most boring (but obviously attractive) celebs in the world has accumulated 16 threads of 600 comments each for doing almost nothing but acting like a Republican during a pandemic and thinking with his dick for a few too many months over a tiny little demon possessed blonde. As long as he doesn’t move on the Tomi Lahren next he still has a path to redemption IMO.

R38 This quote from that article is actually very relevant to Ben: “When Harry Met Sally is ultimately the story of Harry’s arc: The question it asks, in the end, is not whether women and men can be friends, but whether a guy who hates almost everyone can open himself up to a single someone. That he proves able to evolve suggests an absolution. Sally, at one point, frustrated with Harry’s antics, calls him ‘a human affront to all women.’ She concludes, though, with this: ‘You make it impossible for me to hate you.’”

R40 Well obviously you've overlooked one very key thing here. There's just no possible way Ben could hate people! As every fangirl knows, he's the kindest, sweetest, most caring human being that's ever lived! He's a professional actor, there's no way he could ever hate people! He would need to fool and manipulate everyone into thinking he was so kind all the time! How could he possibly do that?!?
I mean sure, when slip ups lead to us seeing into his private life, he comes across as a very different person from the persona he puts out publicly. And sure, he says ALLLLLL the time how much time he spends watching Netflix at home. Oh and also that he calculates how early he has to leave a party in order to watch several episodes of those Netflix shows. Oh but he's soooooo good at social media because of how much he loves interacting with people! Because he's always so kind and he loves his fans! I mean it's not like it's beneficial to him financially to act to make his fans believe he loves and appreciates them So. Much. through a carefully curated public persona.
Nope. It's impossible that Ben ever hates people. He's far too good and loving a person to be capable of that. Ben cares about other people, it's just who he is in his heart.

The “hates almost everyone” part is a bit strong, but if I were him I would probably mistrust almost everyone by now, especially any post-fame new people, because you would never know who is genuinely interested or who just wants to use you for social climbing and a quick thrill before spilling your perfectly brewed British tea to the ravenous internet and paparazzi. A friend and another source have confirmed over the last few months that Deuxmoi is purposefully withholding BB related info even about relatively benign but common Deuxmoi type content (like sightings or potential projects) that have been submitted/confirmed by multiple people, plus at least one thing that’s a little more salacious (something other than the Raya account they shared or anything JH related). It’s kinda annoyingly impressive that he has not only maintained a relatively unproblematic reputation after almost 2 decades in the industry, but also has people in the dregs of the gossip industry that are willing to protect him. That’s the power of BB I guess

She wouldn’t tell me details especially about the salacious one because she’s worried the secondary/technical way she confirmed this might lead back to the wrong people. She said it was juicy but not anything career ending, so she’s not sure why Deuxmoi is withholding this stuff. I think whoever runs that account has said they sometimes don’t post stuff about people they like, but also withholding minor stuff like brunch sightings seems odd. Maybe some PR people are powerful enough to put a gag order on certain people or topics with Deuxmoi.

Do we know who his publicist is? I would doubt they’re powerful enough to stop DeuxMoi from posting tbh, but DM definitely has her favs (for example you’ll never see anything bad or juicy about EmRata on DM). DeuxMoi is based in NY and kissed ses to hang out with B/C list celebs (like Hailey Bieber) so it’s not impossible that they know each other from when BB was shooting the Punisher and now doesn’t want to post about him.
|by Anonymous||reply 51||July 14, 2021 9:58 AM|
R46 I’m sorry I don’t believe any of that. If BB has such a powerful team and knows the important people enough to get stories buried, than why has his career plateaued? His costars in Punisher and other projects are doing giant movies, and he has taken a side step since westworld. Deuxmoi does not fact check, there has been wrong information posted there before. I think he is a boring old man, who has pretty privilege, and I don’t believe there is anything racy about him. I call bullshit on all of it.

R52 It could be a career plateau or it could be some major announcements being held until studios stop clutching their pearls over pandemic delays and box office numbers and get through their schedule backlog or it even could be the clusterfuck that is the FTC scrutiny over a major tech company buying a major studio. Time will tell. At least 50% of Deuxmoi seems to be bullshit and there have even been rumors it’s been taken over by a team of moderators and the original NYC fashion girl is no longer involved, so makes it even more suspicious that they would be hiding anything on BB. I don’t follow it that religiously but I’ve never seen anything on there that sounds related to him

The new mods of the Deuxmoi subreddit have also been adding this disclaimer vaguely banning certain discussions but I haven’t been paying attention enough to see what caused it. It does seem to kinda defeat the purpose of a gossip site if discussions are limited to only people who aren’t as popular as the highly “stanned” people (whatever that means) and people who no one has ever heard of. Maybe the concept of Deuxmoi is circling the drain or they are under legal scrutiny

R55 Obviously can't be sure, but I read that in the opposite way I think. They ban Stan culture. Super fans are not allowed. So especially when uber popular celebs are involved, just stick to specifically discussing what's posted to avoid those stanning super fans defensively turning the conversation into a complete shit hole like they always do.
We all know how super fans protect and take care of their obsessions, don't we.

R46 R51 Remind me, is Ben friends with Just Jared? You know, the other guy that posts about celebrity sightings and what not all the time? But why though, does he seem like the kind of person Ben would normally have as a friend?
Or maybe, does Ben purposefully seek out and try to uber charm and befriend gossip site people with his pretty privilege in order to assure that his name stays out of those sites. Well except when he goes to premieres of course, those you can post about Jared, that helps his career. Anything else not approved of by BB??? *crickets*
Truly, I wonder what his sweet, innocent, perfectly good and lovingly angelic self has to do to these people in order to elicit such blind obedience and loyalty.
Of course, you do realize what kind of people religiously go to these lengths don't you. Someone with something to hide. An actually angelic person wouldn't care about their random mentions online. A guilty person would seek to ensure they're never mentioned.
Though, it's not like you could get ahead of the game by making people believe you're too angelic for the guilty gossip to be real. . . right?

I really hope BB can see her for what she really is. Those stories I think show exactly who JH is. The fake lips and the makeup does not make all that work she had done look natural at all. You can see the filler and the botox and her forehead is a different shape. If BB is the social climber asshole we speculated him to be, than maybe he has turned a new leaf. This z list Cannes party would have been perfect for that sort of bullshit. The more I think about paris he definitely didn’t go, as she has been in Italy for like three weeks now. Just flaunting her money and her yummy adventures with the dude and her fake ass life. She is not Jlo, I’ve met Jlo, Jlo has class and works her ass off. JH is not even close. Yeah she tagged everyone at that party, maybe throw it into BB’s face how special she is. When really homegirl you look insecure and alone. Where did Doug go? He couldn’t go to this party with you? Also I know she is not paying $1000 for her wardrobe, so who is she fucking to be on all these yachts for weeks on end. She seems like the type to not pay her share, just use it for glam and pics. Pay in clout. Honestly can the new girl BB has been singing love songs about just surface already. Sick of talking about this basic, white, rich woman who brings nothing to the table.

R68 BB follows DC on Twitter and IG but he doesn’t follow him back. There are a couple of tweets where BB replied on a DC tweet (no like, no reply) and a ‘5 perfect films, 5 friends’ from Apr 2020 where Jimmi Simpson nom’d BB, who in turn nom’d DC as one of his 5 friends. DC broke the chain and didn’t like/reply. So I’m guessing BB maybe crossed paths with DC for 5 mins at some ceremony or suchlike. Another ND/SW situation.
R70 According to one of the other female’s posts on JH stories it was a party for the Naked Heart Foundation, a charity for Russian needy children. Yes I’m totally sick of JH too and her fake ass (and everything else) lifestyle. I’m not that sure BB’s got someone new tbh, I think he’s serenading his lost youth.

While charities for children are usually a noble cause (unless they are super corrupt) I can’t help but think JH is there simply to look like she is dressed up with a glam squad in the mere vicinity of Cannes Film Fest just so it appears like she might have actually been cool enough to go for that instead of just being in France for an unrelated reason at the same time. This trip must have been insanely expensive and it doesn’t look like she’s been working so I doubt she’s charging it to one of her companies as a business expense, but this is the psycho who somehow weaseled her way into Davos so she must be fluent in freeloading off the mega rich

R71 Well as I remember it, Ben didn't bother to go to the punisher S2 wrap party in 2018, even with Jason Moore calling him out publicly for it, and instead rushed back to LA first chance he got. (I believed at the time that he was rushing back to Peyton, cause he was literally leaving for England in a week afterwards for Golddigger. OF COURSE it could also be because Ben hates people and can't even be bothered to celebrate with them at their big party that included him!) Then the picture below shows up. The next picture from the same night in this man's feed says he went to Darren's new piano bar and even got to meet him. Not guaranteed, but certainly likely that he met Ben at the piano bar too. So also likely that Ben rushed home, and immediately rushed out to celebrate Darren's new business. (Wait, he does support his friend's businesses? So just not his grifter extraordinaire of a girlfriend then. Classy?!?) So it seems like they were friends back then.
Also seems like this is just yet another blue check mark that no longer publicly associates with Ben Barnes. Strange that. . .

Going back to the Westworld thing for a moment, one of his recent follows is Lisa Joy Nolan (co-creator of WW). Looks like she created her account on 3 May. He liked every one of her 6 posts during May and then eight of her 22 posts during June & July. That’s a lot (for him!) - ‘hello, remember me?’ perhaps?!

R76 Speaking of, I'm still waiting for to hear about the reason for Ben's Really Gay Yacht Trip of 2016.
Going through Ben's old candids, the random house party type of shots really begin to disappear around 2017/18. After that, most of the pictures are from cons or he's out with castmates.

R79 Long filming gigs away from LA from The Punisher onwards to beginning of 2020? I can imagine that in Hollyweird you’re only as popular as the last party you went to, so perhaps with his pretty face missing from the party circuit for long periods of time, he dropped off the invites list? Maybe why hardly any blue tick interaction too, especially being submerged in Budapest for 5 months or so.

What if he met someone during punisher in 2017 and from late 2017 to 2020 they were together which is why he kind of disappeared from the party scene in LA. There is really just project stuff from him during that time and some touristy or con stuff. Then the first pap walk was April 2020 with JH so assuming this random normie thing definitely wasn’t a thing early 2020. She could have been someone who is not pictured with him, but was around. I’m making this all up of course. Or even a dude. He could be secretly gay, we really don’t know. I don’t think the Peyton thing was anything. I think they were just friends. Those pap pics seem innocent. The Raya was for appearance, so no one would go looking for this girl or guy. There is so much we don’t know.

Longtime lurker, finally signed up so I may weigh in.
—Jack unfollowing JH is huge. HUGE! Best indicator yet that they’re done. —My best guess is that The Benny doesn’t make much. He lives a lean, staff-free life, with lowkey furnishings and goes to a normal person gym. home is not posh, inside or out. He gets all the last-minute castings for gigs that film on non-local and often far away locations. Has he ever filmed anything in LA? Pretty sure the answer is a hard no, aside from some studio stuff in SoCal for Westworld, which also filmed quite a bit in Utah. He really hasn’t been in a position to settle down & make baby Bennies. His only income in 2020 was likely audiobooks, ja? He’s been 100% dedicated to his career & trying to get ahead, thus the revolving door of disposable fucktoys prior to JH. —Circling back to JH: She’s essentially a C-list celeb/social media influencer, who gets free clothes & trips in exchange for promoting stuff. Or selling herself. He’s classy in comparison, which as has been detailed hilariously & ad nauseum, isn’t saying much. —The Leo who sucked in bed must surely be our 8/20 Leo, BB.

R89 Welcome fellowish newbie! I refuse to believe Ben sucks in bed lol but I have heard that to be true about the other Leo from a more credible, non-JH source. Unlike BB, it’s a numbers game for him and he doesn’t have to worry about his career being negatively impacted by his sex life.
Regarding his lack of appearances in candid party photos on the stalker fan website and due to my supreme procrastination skills ahead of a real-life job responsibility due tomorrow, I took the liberty of making this list. It’s the estimated filming months for his recent projects that would have taken him partly if not mostly away from LA and this does not include press tours, auditions, etc. Feel free to make any corrections/additions, I only really became aware of Ben again in the last year so I don’t have the wealth of background knowledge that some of you have so kindly contributed here. Based on this relatively busy schedule and focus on the turn in his career, plus the typical reduced partying that happens to many in their late 30s, I think the lack of party appearances is more about career/life logistics and less about any friends shunning him. I hope all this shit with JH was just a boredom induced quarantini mistake that Ben has finally left behind because she’s clearly a manipulative psycho.

R90 I’ve only really paid attention to his follows/followers for the last 18 months and I don’t recall seeing TE on there during that period, so I think they’ve probably not followed each other for some time. We know BB likes to keep up appearances and follow most of his exes: TE was one, RR was another (on his private account), am not sure PL actually has an official IG for him to follow, Seyfried’s still on his follows but I don’t think that was ever more than a studio publationship, and I don’t think he’s ever followed Meganne Young?... but this is evidence that eventually - after a non-confrontational period of time - he will unfollow. Wish I knew who unfollowed who first, just to be nosy! I’m betting TE. Josh probably asked her why she was still following BB.
Also, I confess I’ve forgotten when Jack started following the Ho, wasn’t there a bit of follow/unfollow there well before Montanagate? I could be wrong of course as it’s hard to keep up.

R93 Both Jack and Rob followed The Ho in November last year, first clue I got something was rotten in Denmark. Then both of them unfollowed February 5th, I believe the same day Ben deactivated his private IG if I remember correctly (you can go back check the previous threads, it was noted as it happened). Rob never refollowed The Ho, but Jack at one point did. Then a few hours ago, he unfollowed again.
Also just a curious note, Jack also followed Nina up until. . . a couple months ago was it? But it was definitely long after Ben unfollowed her. Honestly made me wonder if Jack was just hate following the both of them, and finally just couldn't fucking take it anymore. (wise bro..)

R57 Well I guess I have inadvertently joined the BB protection squad now because I got details on the gossip but only in exchange for my silence so I won’t be posting it here. The silence isn’t really due to the nature of the info but more due to the offline drama it’s caused (which does not involve Ben) and due to working in an adjacent industry that’s becoming increasingly less adjacent this year, so I’m excluding myself from this narrative. But while I’m adjusting to this new phase I will say that the people who have followed or participated in these threads for a while will probably be pretty disappointed with this gossip. Not only is he definitely not gay, the name/abbreviation of the main person in (and maybe one of the anonymous submitters of?) this story has made occasional appearances on these threads, even the only few recent ones I’ve scrolled through after rediscovering Ben, despite most of these events taking place in and around 2016 during a relatively busy time for Ben. So maybe some of it was pieced together from social media here (I’m not reading that far back to find out) but there’s definitely more details to this story. I fully understand some of you will probably think this is bullshit and there’s nothing I can or will be able to do to prove otherwise. Maybe it will come out of Deuxmoi eventually.

R100 While I fully respect protecting sources and therefore needing to be vague, I'm afraid that was kinda really hard to follow. Can you try to clarify/correct my potential understanding?
Firstly are you referencing one, or several gossipy stories?
Can you specify (more?) why you think we would be disappointed if/when we heard the story?
The gossipy story(ies) solely took place in 2016.
The gossipy story(ies) all reference one person, who is/was associated with Ben (in 2016?).
We know who this person is and have often referenced him/her by name.
You wonder if some parts of the gossipy story(ies) were sourced from DL itself.
Wait, there's definitely more details to what story?
Hope those questions don't violate your agreement, but they'll hopefully help translate your previous post for us!

Assumptions/deductions I’m making are that 1) this adjacent industry is music, and it’s becoming less adjacent b/c BB is working on an album, looking to crossover; 2) the 2016 business involves RR, and that the experience adversely impacted her.

And both music and modeling are crossing over with acting these days. And Rayana does all three of them. So does Ben. Well at least, he wants to do music, but nobody will publish it for him.

Wait why does 2016 RR gossip have anything to do with now? I’m so confused. Is he her baby daddy? Why should we care. I thought she has been in a serious relationship for a while now. Weren’t they definitely not a thing come like mid 2017? All ancient stuff. Why are things that happened five years ago relevant? Also RR is first a model then a bad amateur singer. So I don’t get how sharing a story about gossip from years ago would affect her. Her career as a singer has not taken off and her music is not great. Like are BB and her fucking right now? That would be something. This whole drop speculation like you have facts but then say no I’m gonna be silent, why share at all? Looks like old, stale tea to me.

I have not personally read what was submitted to DM so I don’t want this to turn into a game of telephone where the potential “facts” get even more skewed by retelling. R104 #2 is correct. By potentially “disappointed” in this gossip it meant many people here might think this news is anticlimactic because they already had assumed a connection between BB & RR and many were also hoping he was still gay lol. But this story seemed more detailed than someone just sourcing a few details from DL and resubmitting to DM for fun. R104 on #1 this was more referring to the increasingly blurred lines between the entertainment and tech industries, but perhaps this story is being brought up again because of the shift towards the music industry. That’s just speculation though

[R107] Gotcha, thanks for confirming #2. I’ve always assumed there were multiple sides to any of the stories with his dalliances/relationships. But re: this one, I will say this: Due to RR’s youth and the disparity in their levels of professional achievement, I always suspected a little bit of a Ryan Adams situation went on here. I’m likely projecting, but in my mind, I suspected he took advantage of a young, naive & ambitious kid who was in awe of him, and perhaps made promises to assist that he never followed through with, or that he left her in the lurch in some way, shape, or form. Admittedly I could be totally offbase.

R110 Well Rayana herself partly confirmed some of that back then. I can't give you the exact quotes because she erased all the posts from back then, but she alluded to a bad break up between them. I remember words like, "even when you think you've actually found a good guy.." and something to the effect of they disappoint you. Her best friend Jaime consoled? her by saying there weren't any guys good enough for them because they were special unicorns (so it wasn't her fault??).
And probably the biggest clue. Ben unfollowed her after they broke up. Eventually they reconciled months later and refollowed (also following her dog's IG account at the time), but immediately after the break up? When does Ben ever unfollow his exes? Nah, there was definitely bad blood there back then.
R113 Yes, Ben is in the blue shirt with the watch and Rayana is next to him in the orangey and ivory jacket. Again, she erased the posts where she was in that outfit and she and Jasmine walked around Williamsburg later that day, but I promise you it's the same. And I also assure you, Ben was *NEVER* tagged in that photo. There is no way in Hell he would have allowed Jasmine to do that. You can even see Katzz's comment saying she forgot to tag him. (I remember katzz's repeated commentary re: his secret relationship quite fondly.. she was great..)

R115 yeah the armchair PIs stirring the pot is just unnecessarily skewing this story that shouldn’t have even been brought up in the first place. But just to clarify, this was more of a RR story than a BB story which is probably why it wasn’t posted because no one knows who the fuck RR is except for people on DL apparently. And the details in the recent story don’t actually match the narrative that’s being painted in this thread above. RR was actually involved with Dominic Howard (an even older guy than Ben) both before and after and according to recent accounts also during her short stint with Ben and it was actually Ben who got shafted in this situation with RR trying to get sympathy when she had a falling out with both guys for a while before ultimately making up with D. It only worked for a while because she also wanted to keep it quiet due to her ongoing relationship with Dominic, she was definitely not the victim in all this. The fact that this is even coming up now just makes it seem like either RR trying to remain relevant or a fangirl stirring the pot for no reason.

R118 To be fair, we didn’t re-open the RR topic ;-) but once done, we did explore it. The pot stirring mentioned refers to all things BB, not merely RR-related. If he got shafted, then I’m not sure why RR asserted that BB didn’t turn out to be the good guy she’d thought him to be. I’m hearing mixed messages here.
If the whole thing was afterall just a case of garden variety douchebaggery from one or both of them, then I for one am glad to hear it. I certainly don’t wish a #metoo scenario for either of them. Remember, we want BB to be the guy he presents himself as, who we all once believed him to be.

R117 I would wonder about "how bad" it was too except that they did become friends again after a while, which makes me think it didn't stretch into MeToo territory as most people understand that "term." Something that falls to that level shouldn't be able to be swept into bygones that quickly. I never got the impression he took *that* kind of advantage, only that it was a bad ending.
Though he is obviously a control freak. He is absolutely religious about EVERYONE around him keeping his women private.

Remember one of the original comments bringing this up before they had the details even said it was described as “juicy but not career ruining” gossip. Believe me I’m not Cindy fucking Dakin coming to defend Ben for any minor hint of negativity, but did this really have to take the dark turn that it did? This clearly turned out to be a stupid story that never should have been brought up in the first replace because her relationship with DH is easily verifiable as crossing this timeline since they weren’t as secretive. but a false #metoo accusation can absolutely ruin a career and that’s not a conclusion that should be jumped to, especially considering the basic known facts and good reputation of the person in question and an unverified but likely story that Ben was cheated on.

As you may recall, I said veering toward. There is a broad range of bad behavior that fell under that hashtag, and I’m not seeking to debate the validity of which should or shouldn’t. For me, any hint of abuse of power differential fell within that and still does. We were skeeved out by his dating a 22YO for a reason, and it’s not because we didn’t think she’d catch all of his pop cultural references. Furthermore, we were appalled for a reason that he kept company with the likes of Chris Delia. Let’s not now pretend that we haven’t long raised some ethical concerns here.

R122 Obviously I don't know, but the only thing I'll add is that Ben was a more frequent poster back then, and I don't remember one hint of him acting "upset" or otherwise differently in any way after they broke up. Like he has after other suspected relationships ended. Nope, after Rayana, I remember him always being his normal self.
Which, if he was the one to unceremoniously end it to leave her upset in the lurch. . . fits. But I don't at all think MeToo. That doesn't fit.

IMO he was more active then because 2016 was a busy year and a big turning point in his career with the airing of Westworld and the filming of the Punisher and being in a new city for half the year. Just because he (allegedly) got cheated on doesn’t mean he was necessarily severely depressed over it, he could have been like fuck it, fuck her I’m too busy to care. You can’t pick up those reactions from occasional Instagram activities. I think I remember in a recent S&B interview he said he listened to a lot of muse while preparing for the darkling role. I do wonder now if that was because he just enjoys Muse or if it had some moody and motivating dark vibes for that role lol

For what it’s worth, my take on the RR/BB situation is....
They hook up while she’s split up from D
She’s just a fucktoy for BB
She and D then go into on/off for a while during this time
BB finds out and even altho he’s not into anything long term with her himself, male ego demands he ghosts her (and unfollows)
She - probably on a break from D again - goes all ‘woe is me’ over this for a while, remember she’s got an ego too so how very dare he
She gets back with D, and her & BB are pals (only pals this time) again
Probably not as cut and dried as that, but there you go. Here endeth the first lesson and I for one don’t want to hear anything more about her!

THIS RIGHT THE FUCK HERE. And let's talk a moment about the ludicrousness of his stated "When I find someone I want to marry, I'll let you know" position. How is that supposed to work, Benny? You want to date someone for...years? In ABSOLUTE secrecy, never giving anyone a glimpse of this mystical woman. Then out of nowhere you'll spring an engagement announcement on us? Or will you not even do that? Keep the whole engagement secret and not let us know until the wedding? And this woman who you'll be treating like a dirty shameful secret is going to want to MARRY you?
I get it. I get it now. It's like a fairy tale plot. Princess and the Pea or Cinderella or Patient Griselda or some shit. Subject a girl to a whole lot of mind games and pointless suffering, and only if she willingly and happily goes along with it will she prove herself worthy to get Prince fucking Caspian in the end.

R101 While we’re trawling the BB Ex archives.... thanks for clarifying that he’d followed MY on his private IG. The sneaky little devil. Wish I’d known that at the time, could have gone snooping for likes etc and if/when he unfollowed. Yet again, as with most of his known relationships, it doesn’t appear to have been anything serious if indeed it was anything at all to begin with.
I wonder if he looks at TE and Josh and their little rug rats and thinks of what could have been? That was by all appearances quite a serious thing between them, going by length of the relationship. I always wondered why they split... he just wouldn’t commit or she cheated on him with Josh? I think she met Josh before she got with BB so maybe something rekindled there! And if BB wouldn’t commit.... buhbye BB.

R130 I’ve always wondered how Ben feels about Josh and TE too. The timing certainly lines up for TE jumping right from Ben to Josh but who knows if they were even together enough for it to be considered cheating. That seemed to be the last girl he was willing to do the more coy celebrity act with of being seen together but never confirming anything publicly, rather than just avoiding or hiding relationships all together. Josh has talked a lot about how glad he was to leave Hollywood and how proud he is of his wife and kids and enjoying how the roles available to him have gotten more interesting as he has gotten older and left behind the Pearl Harbor heartthrob imagine. It’s kinda like reading about an alternate reality of Ben Barnes if he had made some different decisions or moved back to London.

Ok, so sex life it is. Lol.
Seems like we’re detecting a pattern of women allegedly cheating on and/or leaving BB for a more emotionally available man. I will say this: doesn’t sound like his cock is made of gold and his tongue made of silver, ‘cuz if they were, keeping a relationship on the downlow wouldn’t be the biggest hardship. As a bf, the guy must be pretty lacking in a few areas not to compensate for a mere privacy quirk.

R132 I think you’re right. I think it might be a combination of totally ott paranoia (some of them probably thought, what? you ain’t that famous, man), dumping them if he thinks they’re posting ‘dangerous’ pix or getting the least bit clingy (hello Billy Russo), and an unreasonable sulky/ghosting reaction if the women are hanging out or seen with other guys. And complete lack of commitment on his part.
Of course, we are assuming he’s screwing these various women along the way, but what if Mama’s counselling from an early age messed up his head? He could actually be keeping it firmly zipped up in his pants (frightened of dick pics or little Benji baby claims) all this time and that’s why the ladies move on. LMFAO could you imagine if that was the case???!!!
BTW I still don’t buy the ‘family man’ claims, no matter how long he’s been making them. He’s that Peter Pan man child person- doesn’t want the responsibility or to interrupt his ‘hedonistic’ lifestyle.....

R133 I doubt highly that the guy’s been a monk, but he’s clearly a commitment-phobe with no desire to be obligated to anyone. On the one hand, it’s understandable why he eschews the messiness of attachments and wants to own his time when he is frequently uprooted for large stretches of time, yet on the other hand… he’s pushing 40, and other steadily working actors clearly figure it out. (Think Matthew Goode, or Tamsin/Josh.) And it’s not an all-or-nothing proposition. One can have an actual relationship without being married with a gaggle of kidlets.

In terms of BB love life we really know nothing. Everything can be manipulated on social media. RR can play the victim when she wasn’t, they could have just been friends and she was in NY, he had the same social media behavior with Alicia Sanz during punisher and no one said they were together, although I would not doubt it. We can look at patterns and it is clear he has commitment issues. Seems to be some selfishness there. Nobody wants to be with a selfish partner. Perhaps some maturing as well. You can have it all and I cannot imagine there was no one good enough for him. Hopefully he can be more generous in the future, with his fans and the people he loves. Being a secret I’m sure is not fun. I bet a relationship with a genuine woman would make him more popular, people love couples.

R135 yeah this might as well be a giant Ben Barnes fanfic story because we know nothing. He could be like Costa Ronin who had a very lowkey relationship with a normal girl who didn’t live in LA and didn’t really become public until they were engaged. Ben doesn’t come across as emotionally unavailable or selfish in his interviews and if anything I’ve thought he might have the problem that he’s TOO nice and emotionally available, which can be off putting and an automatic ticket to the friend zone, but maybe that’s just my taste 😄

R137 also he is an actor. I know people who on the outside seemed kind and supportive and like amazing, genuine humans and than come to find out behind closed doors they were cruel and abusive. It is very easy to fool people and Hollywood people are great at that. With a camera in front of you of course everyone is their best self. JH is actually masterful at that sort of manipulation so the fact that he aligned himself with her for so long makes me think they have something in common. Also he is rich, famous, good looking I doubt he is ever being friendzoned. He just clearly has commitment issues. He is old enough that if he wanted the family life is could have it.

There are very frequent fan girl requests for him to cover a Taylor Swift song especially her most recent stuff, but I seem to remember an interview where he was asked about his favorite song of hers and he seemed to not be able to remember the names of any and seemed kinda visibly annoyed she was brought up?

I wonder when and where he plans on celebrating his 40th since it seems like half of Hollywood is working or on epic vacations and he is just in LA. It looks like that girl Lizzy has a lot of music producer friends, so maybe he’s just trying to network and charm the music industry

I mean BB will never be a rockstar. That dream is not gonna happen for him. I know that is what he has always wanted to be, but it’s like Johnny Depp and his band. They all seemed old and sad. If the album of original songs was good he would have never said it was coming out soon, because there would be a marketing team and late night show performances lined up. It would have never made that comment of not doing any covers to then two weeks later do another cover. I doubt he has any of that. I think he is trying to be cool, hope he isn’t trying to have sex with any of those 20 somethings. Wish he would find an age appropriate woman and settle. This chasing relevancy isn’t cool, it’s so sad.

Maybe he’s just trying to make an album of collabs. If he does ever actually come out with an album it will probably just be something that was enjoyable to make and listen to that involved partnering with a bunch of different people like he did for the soundtrack music he’s on, but not meant to take him on a new career path. He has said he’s not a writer starting from a blank page and not good enough to attract and anchor a full band

R141 No, he always has those little "bald spots" in his beard. I mean all that white. . . powder that's so reflective in the sunlight? To the right of his mouth? Am I the only one seeing this? Did she bring powdered donuts?
R144 If you happen to remember the INFAMOUS Jackie & Ryan interview where he told the very gay interviewer that he wouldn't let a stranger into his mouth. . . he reacts with utter disgust when Katie starts singing Shake It Off. No, I'm thinking Ben definitely isn't a Taylor Swift fan. But I will give him points for covering it up serviceably enough in the interview at R147.
R154 No you see, as R152 pointed out, she has on a different outfit today! So the singing video was definitely filmed earlier! Ben only posted it today to throw us off the scent from him traveling anywhere!! *evil laugh*
Of course it's technically a good thing this was filmed earlier considering LA mandated everyone regardless of vaccination status to wear masks indoors today. And singing was early on one of the WORST ways to spread Covid. Not to mention they ain't social distanced..
R169 Or maybe he's been watching too much rightwing news and thinks the vaccine turns you into magneto? Of course now I'm going to have to shout out the nerds and make an inverse cube joke. Careful Ben, you double the original distance between you and your lady love, and that magnetic attraction drops to 1/8th its original strength. Triple the distance? You're down to 1/27th the strength. Of course, maybe that's why Ben keeps getting cheated on. . . he leaves for months at a time to film. Ouch.
Or. . . what if the secret message is to the posters here?!? (Whaaaaaaaaaattttttt??) Ben's never going to be able to make us love him again. But at least he hopes we're healing and have moved on to a newer MUCH BETTER celebrity crush. How sweet. Of course what actually would have worked in his favor in the goddamned beginning was if he actually owned what he did and apologized. That's all it would have taken for me. Instead he tried to cover everything up after it was all over the place. So shockingly, no. There's no healing and I ain't leaving him alone any fucking time soon.

Between you guys and Cdan hands down the best celeb goss, sleuthing, info gathering and trolling (although I dont condone some chat bits) overall its been the entertainment of lockdown life for me.

Oh and BB everyone told ya so! you were used by ur so called best friend to be a lockdown pit stop to something bigger and better and richer. God knows what you were thinking you could change JH!! You watched how it went down with brooks so no sympathy for you! You have a poor judgement of friends and no self worth to put your self in that position.

She has been in Europe for like 20 days now, almost a month. She has been on a yacht somewhere for most of her trip. How sad BB actually thought he had a chance. Brooks was worth what 30 million and that wasn’t enough so no doubt she is looking for a billionaire. There are 500 billionaires in the world. Benny B has like what 3-5 million if that. That is poor to most rich people. Hope he is learning all the lessons. From the Covid traveling, to his friend groups, to just how not to treat people. Sizing people up based on who they know or how much money they have doesn’t necessarily mean you surround yourself with good people. Maybe that is asshole behavior.

Thanks for the welcome everyone :) Im a daily poster on cdan have been for years and enjoy the overlap of goss about JH, BB and many other stupid celebs doing stupid things. Yes cdan celeb ratings are off it depends on awards and main role castings, which Ben has consistently done but due to his inept social media issues/OCD privacy settings its basically kept him back from having more prominent star status and general awareness from the average joe public.
He is his own worst enemy, he really shouldnt be in control of his social media (late night liking of porn hub material of young girls)...stop being stingy BB and hire a professional!!!! ps not JH's tho. There haven't been that many of JH and BB cdan goss other than the stuff revealed earlier in the year of them both with BB being described as being used...I wonder who is giving CDan the goss tho?
It must be a close but concerned friend of BB and JH giving BB the lowkey warning signals of JH and her tricksy ways of grifting/blackface shenanigans! Chike or Rob maybe?! I still cant believe BB got with a racist!!!!..I can imagine his friends taking a back seat to that choice. Interesting that he no longer posted frequent BLM stuff in stories, posts etc. after they had their 2nd pap walk/Montanagate until very recently, another reason to keep their fling on the down low.

This is the only other thing that I’m aware of related to Ben on CDAN, but maybe there are a lot more that haven’t been revealed yet. I don’t frequent the site.
Maybe Ben started out with her in Paris (hence the coy social media and that heart/lion thing) then they had a falling out, he stopped in London on the way home to LA, and she went on her way to find a yacht husband and told the bachelorette she was even willing to take her hunt to national TV just to get it out there that she’s looking. Not that quality billionaires would even pay attention to that. Once she had her taste of the mega rich lifestyle at Davos she probably had her list of targets then, but the pesky pandemic got in the way of her networking so she settled for the emotional support of Benny B to heal. There was also a blind about Brooks and JH that pretty much confirmed JH cheated and I wouldn’t be surprised if that happened multiple times but Davos was probably her playground.
I feel like JH would break up with someone by saying she’s healing, growing, and ready to be magnetized to someone in a way that BB wasn’t able to offer her. I think the last line of BB’s last caption was meant for a specific person, not just a wellwish to all his followers

R193 I hear you, it’s definitely a possibility they were in Paris together. I did think at one point that he was with her, but now I’m not 100% convinced it was him.
I’m thinking it’s entirely possible she bumped into someone in LA or on her many covid travels who caught her eye. Someone who’s maybe European, rich and camera shy like BB. One of the Eastern European oligarchs? Since when does that attention whore move off the continental US - where all her pap contacts are - unless there’s a very rich prize at the end of the rainbow?
Or could possibly have met this person at the Family Film Awards she performed at/attended. Me and the IG Sleuth always felt that *something* happened that night, cos she went into total radio silence on social media the next day for several days. Could she have been flirting like hell with some other guy and BB went ballistic? Male ego and all that. Just wish someone would spill all the tea about that whole train wreck of a ‘relationship’!!!

I was for sure they were done then, he put out that cover the next day “where is the love” basically about a woman who used and lied. I can see them meeting up for him to say this is what I’m doing. Didn’t his brother unfollow her then, but then refollowed her again.
Idk if he was in Paris. I think after montanagate they both realized they could get some traction if they liked each other posts and pretended there was something. JH is all about presenting an image that isn’t real, her ex bf Chuck basically said she will lie and that it wasn’t his fault they broke up so as she always been a cheater? BB who is obviously insecure just fell for it all. She manipulated him and used him and he probably really thought she cared about him. People don’t discard people they care about. All with his therapist parents you think he would have seen her for what she is.

Therapists and empathetic people are notorious for wanting to find and believe the best in people and hoping people can change or be fixed in some way. Maybe Ben is still holding out hope she will eventually come around and that’s why he thinks he’s Harry Burns. But he’s really the Sally in this situation

What gets me the most is JH selling her pseudo-emotional intelligence/life and fitness guru persona is the biggest joke of all!!!
This white privileged racist prostitute feeding derivative wellbeing knowledge to the public and praising herself as a strong independant woman who owns her own multiple "businesses" and on the other hand being an old whore on a beach and rejecting an opportunity of love from someone (idiotic enough to fall for her) and not be secure in her own wealth and to have what...more money, to have fake likes on insta and to have (manipulated) pics of herself to stay relevant in a vapid industry.
Look im very aware of the entertainment industries code to social climbing to being a top level star, celeb or serious creative of your craft: actor, singer, dancer etc. there are certain exchanges of sex that has to be done to get to a certain basic level status of popularity and wealth. For all the opportunities JH and BB have to be positive role models and to do actual positive real work and support in communities with their social platform and influence pre and post pandemic...they're greed for superficial adoration from young vulnerable females and materialistic things makes them look empty and ignorant...Ben "climbing 500yr old Joshua tree for an insta pic" Barnes your not cut out for Hollywood your too soft in the head!

The way her friends treat him on social media reflects what they know of him from her. So maybe he’ll let her jerk him around some more, or maybe he’s wised up, but I can’t imagine his obsession will survive 6 months of Budapest.

Hasn’t it been said on here multiple times that he often stays in touch with and likes posts of his ex? I think this discord about him liking her posts is an overreaction IMO. If they went to great lengths to hide their relationship in the first place they (plus any decent PR team) would also do at least the bare minimum to make it look like the split was amicable and they are just back to being friends (because they want you to think they have just been friends this whole time).

R215 I mean this has been going on for over a year. His obsession and likes and covers that are exactly mirroring their situation has been going on for over a year. Even in a global pandemic this bullshit continues. During a time when you should be growing and releasing toxic shit because you could fucking die and not just die but die alone unable to talk or say goodbye or right wrongs or say I love you or anything!
JH has been traveling every month for this past year. She could give a fuck about anyone besides herself. She has not stopped or quarantined or anything. I think she sat at home for like a total of two weeks straight and then was in Hawaii, or Vegas, or some other random place.
He really needs to stop supporting her. Totally true about her friends, they never followed him or supported him. Why? That came from how JH presented him in her life and he was clearly not a priority. Not someone to be taken seriously or even be respected!
He seems to make her a priority and what does he get in return? Her saying how yummy things are with some other guy and running around flirting with richer men at some Cannes party.
Oh and maybe a like on a song he posts, but her friends will talk shit and make comments behind his back or on someone else’s insta post for everyone to see. Like we all knew who JH was with and than that person comments on Lizzy’s post about their duet. You know all of them are talking shit making fun of him and they have so little respect Darren knew he could comment. He knew he could publicly say anything, but of course it was never directly to Ben. Ben has allowed all of this. He has allowed them to treat him this way.
Ben stop! You look pathetic! Just stop! Take your power back, these people are walking all over you.

After her birthday - cos perish the thought he wouldn’t wish her a sparkly happy birthday - he should just gradually wind down the likes and then stop. We know he won’t go cold turkey. And it’s not like she’ll notice anyhow.

|by Anonymous||reply 236||July 17, 2021 12:58 AM|
R234 I’ll act as Devil’s advocate here, as I’m really not 100% convinced he was there....
BB posts that depressive Elvis song on Sun 20 June, and an IG story of a deer (no stickers) in the woods. BB looks tired and a very unhappy bunny. Radio silence ensues.
The Ho starts posting on 29 June - moody art shots and selfies (truly selfies! - no-one else in them) from museums and art galleries, and who likes going to them? Not JH!!!!
She posts a story walking across a bridge with a load of love padlocks on it, some thought you could hear BB talking/laughing in the background (have to say I didn’t think it was him)
She posts a story/selfie of her in a red dress and some eagle-eyed person on here spotted a tiny red heart emoji with a lion emoji on top of it stuck on her chest (the same emoji BB used in his England football stories)
All the above from the Ho were stories
She starts actually IG posting again on 4 Jul and suddenly she’s on yachts in Capri
Ben posts the hippy happy Beyoncé song on 5 Jul
So, the evidence for the prosecution is .... radio silence from BB over the time period we surmise she’s in Paris, her uncharacteristic coyness about posting who she’s with, the ‘getting some culture’ stuff, the heart/lion emoji, BB posts the day after she reappears on IG posts in Italy
All the above is undoubtedly true and suspicious-looking, but unlike Montanagate we have no photographic proof. BB’s lack of posts - nothing new. All the rest - could be totally coincidental and we’re reading things into it all that aren’t there.
The Ho was with someone that’s for sure - we just don’t know who.

That’s why they are such good friends, totally there for the cameras and nothing else. The videos of nina posing with that dog are so awkward. Those girls brought their own photographer to that event? So weird. As for Nina not everyone can just leave LA and travel Europe for a month like JH.

And I think this reading into the likes and time of day of Instagram activities is frankly bizarre when I doubt anyone is that militaristic about their social media usage here and likes are hardly an insight into someone’s life when that’s the most minor of all human interaction on a site that shows the highlight reel of maybe 5% of a person’s whole life.

We all know his fangirls read these and report back to him. I get some of you are late to this game. You weren’t on these threads a year ago when everything went down. So welcome to the ways in which BB works. Welcome to the disappointment of who he really is.
oh and he will do everything in his power to bury the truth. That is why there are so many threads and accounts trying to hold him accountable and bring out the truth, but the truth is ugly. From what the truth looks like is he definitely was traveling in a pandemic when there were no vaccines and a lot of people were dying, oh and a lot of people are still fucking dying! When he preached for months about caring about keeping people safe. He didn’t even have a mask on in that restaurant. Then he aligned himself for 10 months with a woman who could give a fuck about anyone but herself, but she is gonna sell you on the idea that she is a healer and she cares about your well being. All the while she took 10 vacations before the vaccine ever came out.
I need all this judgement to take a fucking step back. You are clearly new, catch up.

The burying of the truth is exactly why the likes and timing don’t mean anything. If it’s in his best interest to make it appear like these are and have been nothing more than amicable acquaintances and friendships then why would he do anything publicly to indicate otherwise? The grave missteps of the last year were learning experience, people rarely make the same mistake twice once they learn how technology works, and once they are savvy enough they know people will only find what they want to be found.

I don’t understand your argument. He knows we watch everything he does so him liking stuff he knows people will know. We don’t know they are friends, he just likes posts and gets nothing in return so not sure how good of a friendship that actually is. If he didn’t want people to know anything about anything he could send a DM or like on his private account and not do it on a public account.
The timing is so we know what time zone he is in or did you miss that part? Yes people make mistakes and adults usually take accountability for those mistakes instead of play the victim and pretend it didn’t happen. He thought no one would find out about Montana. Yet here we are.
Are you BB? If you are, once again you still aren’t getting it.

Oh man, if BB does read these threads, then listen up. Choose better women, treat women better, recognize that lies of omission are still lies, prioritize having a grown-up relationship, be accountable for your mistakes and poor choices, and know that being a polite, charming conflict avoider does not make you a good person; it just makes you a polite, charming conflict avoider.

He has loyal minions who do read these threads (and we know who the main culprit is) then scuttle off and DM him, “Oh Benny, Benny, they’re saying mean shit about you again”. He acknowledged that in some interview, saying he sees several familiar fan pages who ‘always look after him’. I think he probably scrolls thru the first handful of the thousands of comments on his own posts, but on someone else’s? Nah. Not convinced he saw that DC comment as I don’t think he would’ve liked his post. Don’t forget the Ho was posing away in the first pic of that post.

Exactly. To all the naysayers, this is why you pay attention. According to IG, she posted about 3amish LA time. And according to R275, he had already liked it by about 6amish LA time. (I'm presuming you weren't watching to notice exactly when he liked it..)
Now, he does always get up earlier on Sundays lately, but not that early! And also to all the naysayers, just because *you* don't have regular social media check in times, do not presume that Ben doesn't. Those of us that have followed him for years know that he does, and what they are. And yes of course he can always change them, or be otherwise occupied, we are aware and we note it. Like now. Either he's not sleeping, or he's not in LA.
|by Anonymous||reply 280||July 18, 2021 3:47 PM|
Or he could be in the UK visiting friends and family or having auditions or fittings and other pre-production meetings for S&B there before filming starts in the fall. Considering the reports JH is husband shopping and her general behavior over the last month I think JH is the least likely reason Ben would be in Europe. Jack probably unfollowed her after a brotherly discussion in the pub about what a psycho she is. When he knows every online move he makes is tracked here why wouldn’t he be using that knowledge to manipulate the people following him and throw people off what he’s actually doing.

It’s almost like this thread doesn’t actually want to get off the subject of JH…..Maybe she needs her own thread?? When was the last time we actually had any compelling clues they were even a thing anymore besides some likes that are basically maintaining the status quo of their previous friendship. Also that “uhhhh” from DC could have been because he was the one who introduced them and didn’t get credit and he knows Ben isn’t in LA and that video was prerecorded and maybe there was also one that included DC she hasn’t posted yet. He wouldn’t have liked the video if he meant for that comment to be negative. I’m not sure why the assumptions here are that the people upthread suggesting alternatives or playing devils advocate are new and working on less information that everyone else, when it could in fact be the opposite and the little clues you all used to go off of don’t carry as much value now that they know who and how things are tracked

When he unfollows her and stops liking her shit or she shows up with some new guy, because he will probably like those pics as well being the simp he is, then it will be known she is out of the picture and then these threads will die because he lives a boring ass life.

R282 remember we had their first pap walks and then no more clues except the likes and comments before Montana. That was 9 months of just likes and comments and then Montana and then right after that the second pap walk. JH divorce wasn’t final so I get the we are just friends to get away from she cheated narrative. She did a pap walk all smiley with brooks right before her romantic vaca with BB over the holidays.

R290 Admittedly true.
Also just want to point out, some that now (again, but completely understandably) never want to hear about The Ho again were just a couple weeks ago freaking out because of the "social media signs" of a secret lionheart emoji and a secret name change to Harry Burns. We still don't know with certainly the "whys" behind all that, but I don't begrudge you your freak out. It was perfectly understandable as those felt like legitimate clues to you. So you talked about them here.
I only ask that we all be fair and not now "freak out" when others of us continue to notice other changes in patterns and little potential clues to what's going on and bring them up here. After all, it's entirely possible we could be noticing and confirming something that proves Ben and The Ho are fully separated and we don't ever have to talk about her toxic ass ever again. If we don't bring it up to each other to have more eyes looking, the likelihood that only one person will figure it out. . . .
Here I'll start a positive observation. Today's like was a break in his usual pattern. He only liked the post talking about missing red carpets. He *didn't* like her utterly over the top super sexy glam thirst trap post. Whereas previously the latter is the kind of post he *ALWAYS* liked (especially from his private account for other ex-girlfriends). The only time he didn't like sexy posts is when The Ho was using them to shill her businesses (his pattern indicates he doesn't support those). In today's sexy post, the only tags were the people/brands who made her look glam for her event. So unless Ben's jealous that those guys got to get close enough to make her that glam and he didn't, he would have no previously known reason not to like that post too. What does it mean? Absolutely nothing. But it's a change in pattern noted for the future record.
|by Anonymous||reply 293||July 18, 2021 6:15 PM|
R293 fair points. Also my impression on the red carpet post like (coming from my own viewpoints that they are romantically finished) was that Ben liked it because it was a caption in support of amfAR, a cause he supports, and not just because it’s a pic of her in a dress.

Hi all, finally have the ability to post as opposed to just reading.

R340 from what I could tell from the name/email of these that are in production in MA, most have already announced the cast or are filming somewhere not on the coast, so I’m not sure he’s in any of these.

The fandom is still in meltdown with three camps established…..
The ‘I’m going to kill myself’ camp…. they think BB and FL are together and/or engaged (where did that come from?!) and are also bewailing the fact that she got a ‘forehead kiss’ and they didn’t. I didn’t see one of those, did you?
The “Rape Apologist/brown face’ accusers… how can he even be friends with her!? Some of them cross over into camp 1.
The “Leave them alone” camp. Or they will beat you.
Hopefully should calm down soon, once they see whatever it is they were shooting.
I could suggest a fourth of course - no social distancing. See link - this was issued on Sat 17th. There are restrictions still in place and one line caught my eye.
-Handshaking, kissing, hugging or other forms of close contact increase risk of transmission of COVID-19.
Still possibly covid spreading, Benny Boy?!

Ok the criticism for what he did at New Years was obviously warranted. There was no widely available vaccine and the time, it likely involved international travel, and we were in the middle of a massive covid wave. This in R381 is kinda ridiculous especially since the CDC guidance says it’s safe to go without masks as long as you are vaccinated and they were traveling for work it wasn’t even like it was a vacation, although that would be ok too as long as you are vaccinated and still following local guidelines. Plus the only evidence we saw of them together was outside which greatly reduces the risk of transmission. Do you expect everyone to just sit at gone and not work even if they are vaccinated? You are just grasping for something to be negative about at this point
|by Anonymous||reply 384||July 19, 2021 8:05 PM|
Plus the film industry has been one of the most careful about regular testing and contact tracing even if everyone is vaccinated in order make things work and continue production, and has been one of the only industries national governments have approved to cross boarders with strict precautions, so it’s also highly likely they were actually more careful than the average tourist, because they certainly wouldn’t be allowed to go back and forth between the US and Canada for work without those precautions, which Ben did last year for S&B final shooting and FL is doing for her show. I get that some people are content and have the means to just sit at home forever, but the tourism, entertainment, service, etc industries need to eventually move on to survive, and it’s not just the rich actors who participate in those industries
|by Anonymous||reply 385||July 19, 2021 8:15 PM|
R381 R382 No, I’m not just grasping for negatives, No, I don’t expect them to sit at home if they’re vaxxed, but I’d like to see some common sense involved. As far as we know he hasn’t seen her since Punisher days so that’s a risk for both of them right there. We don’t know what the project is but is it really necessary for them to film together? - especially if it’s just a music video for his album which seems to be the current speculation. That’s hardly a top priority.
My friend’s niece (age 31 and double vaxxed) has just caught covid and is pretty ill with it, vaxx or not. Another friend, who works for our health service (NHS), has lost several colleagues to it just over the past few months and they were not in the ‘vulnerable’ groups. Today is ‘Freedom Day’ here in England with the restrictions no longer being law, but at the same time the Govt. is saying ‘remain cautious, don’t do this, don’t do that and oh yeah we might need to review this’ so it’s a mixed message. The number of cases is rising again here - Covid has not gone away and the vaxx won’t miraculously stop you getting or spreading it.
The NHS is quietly preparing for a third wave and sadly they were right last time when they anticipated the second wave.
We can just agree to disagree on this, I know that not everyone agrees with my viewpoint and that’s fine. I’m just sick of celebrities doing what they damn well please, same as they have throughout this pandemic.

I’m not saying the concerns aren’t valid and I’m definitely not excusing his behavior around NYE, but I think the general consensus is covid is not going to go away for the foreseeable future and we are going to have to learn to live with it, which is going to look vastly different in each country. You are lucky to have the incredible NHS that’s free, quality care for everyone and a government that for the most part tried to take care of its people and businesses when they were forced to close and stay home. In the US healthcare, if you are lucky enough to have it at all, is tied to your employer or quite expensive to pay for yourself so when your job, income, and very minimal government benefits disappear there’s not much to fall back on. But we were also very lucky to have fast easy access to highly effective vaccines (for now) so the pandemic in the US has turned into a pandemic of the unvaccinated (for serious illness and death, I know breakthrough cases still happen). So if it’s relatively safe for the vaccinated to have more freedoms and that freedom might encourage the hesitant to get vaccinated, it’s become especially frustrating to see people still judging and shaming certain behaviors like there’s no vaccine at all, especially when it comes to your employment and employing others who need jobs. There will of course be more waves and variants, but right now the vast majority of cases and deaths in the US are due to our unfortunately numerous numbers of incredibly stupid people who choose not to get vaccinated and probably still think that orange piece of shit is present and has their best interests in mind.
|by Anonymous||reply 389||July 19, 2021 9:31 PM|
R389 I hear you! And your points are all very valid. The vaxx is definitely the way forward, we do need to move towards our ‘new normal’ and we have also been lucky in the UK to have had a fast rollout, although we also have ‘hold outs’ who think it’s going to make them grow two heads or something. (I checked this morning and I’ve still only got one!)
I think I’m just ticked off that BB could *possibly* be travelling on a vanity project which just seems really selfish? I - along with millions worldwide - lost my job thanks to covid so that is also not making me feel very happy about this little Cape Cod trip! On a personal level for them, FL is about to begin filming that series she’s on and he’s got S&B2 coming up so if god forbid either of them did catch it, that could screw things up big time for them.
My friend’s niece contracted it after meeting family members in a park and having a good old hug! If anything, BB should be out there on the vaxx campaign trail encouraging everyone to get it.
Then again, they both live in LA so there must be some reason for the Cape Cod location. She doesn’t post pix of her & her bf so we don’t know if this is their vacation and BB’s just hopped on that bandwagon, or if it’s an actual real proper honest to god shoot.
Let’s hope this Mystery Project is worth it! (The fan mock suicides, FL trolling, BB x FL x JH speculation!)

Maybe the sun just doesn’t look that low to me, but I don’t think it’s Malibu because the sun would be setting in the west behind him and over the water. That pic looks like the sun is just high or setting in the opposite direction of the water, which makes me think east coast. Who knows

R406 Not saying you're wrong, I obviously don't know, and apologies for getting way too into the weeds, but in mid-July (close to the summer solstice) the sun sets in the NW, not the west over the water. Similar to this video, which Rob took in late September, so the sun is pretty darn close to setting due west. (also I'm assuming that's Malibu cause it looks like it)
However, to me the sun in the sky is correct for 7pmish east coast, not 4pmish west coast, which would mean you're correct. Unless of course it's not a photo from today. Who knows!

Also, apologies in advance but I’ve got three thoughts re the sunset pic….
1. I can’t find that sticker on Giphy, Google or Insta. If Create was used (not sure BB would venture there to make this but…), I can’t get that solid pink colour only gradient, so I’ve hit a dead end. Maybe he did just find it on the internet somewhere.
2. The lyrics don’t appear in the song in that order. Adapted by BB for his own unknown reasons.
3. This one’s tenuous! The pendant’s on prominent display in this pic (it’s called ‘Be Here Now’). It was hidden under his T in yesterday’s posts.
So, no emojis but more hidden messages? Rolls eyes. If he posts a cover of this tomorrow……

R433 Good spot! Ties in exactly with his ‘Rise Up’ and music notes sticker on his story. And Benji’s liked it. The clapperboard doesn’t give any details of course, but it says the shoot was 18 July, daytime and interior.
Hmm… Rise Up and what, exactly? Sprinkle sparkles around and be kind to unicorns?
Well, if it is his music video rather than some commercial venture and if our Flo’s in it - and there seems no doubt she will be - there’s gonna be outright war in the fandom!
They were bad enough when he posted a 15 second IG story with her. A music video with them (probably) kissing and/or fucking? Head to the nuclear bunkers, people!

Love it how the fangirls are like we should support him if he is happy and this thread is horrible for speculating about JH, then he is seen with a woman who we all know has been in a relationship for years, Ben said they were working together on a shoot (so she is not his girlfriend) and they freak out and give her hate. 🙄

Could it be a variation of this project that was likely put on hold due to covid? Maybe she has switched from staring in it to directing it or both? The “single camera” line and the fact that it sounds like something BB would be interested in make me think so. FL seemed to only be there for a day or two in between traveling with her mom and going back to LA so maybe she is just making a guest appearance, but I think Ben has been there for longer, starting with his first sunset pic at the beginning of this month. It also sound like it could have a modern day When Harry met Sally “soulmates” vibe which is why he’s using his old private account and various hearts to send hints to his ??? (We need a Ben equivalent to swifties, I suggest for Ben’s barnacles)

R439 For shame Sylvia, Ben is a perfect angel, he would NEVER lie to his fans! He loves and appreciates them as much as they love and support him! They're sure of his honesty! He definitely cut his own hair while hanging with his girlfriend for New Years, he said so!!!!
Of course for me, the most utterly *hilarious* part of all Ben's lady troubles lately is even I know how much the fangirls ***HHAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTEEEE*** Floriana. I know it because they *flooded* Ben's pages with their hate back in Punisher2 days. There's no way Ben didn't see any of it, it was extreme and constant. So Ben knows how much they hate her, and he chose to shove it in their collective faces by first (probably) choosing her for his project, and then calling her a wonderful person as he squeezed her awfully tightly in an embrace like they wish he would do for them. At least for Punisher2, it wasn't his fault, he didn't cast *HER* as his love interest. But if this truly is his project now? He absolutely DID. Choose. Her.
Because Ben does not give one single fuck what you think or want fangirls!!! He does not actually care about you At. All.

R447 Of course it's a possibility, I obviously have no idea. But the only Aye I can think of in support is Ben said he found a RomCom that he wanted to do this year but the timing wouldn't work.
The Nays in no particular order are this says it's a series for ABC. It doesn't say limited series, so that should be 22 episodes ("11 episodes" if you count they're actually only a half hour long) and that would take a LONG time to film. They only just started filming and 8 eps of S&B took over 6 months. Unlikely. If this was something official like that there should have been an announcement before cast and crew are posting anything at all from the set. ESPECIALLY if Disney (ABC) owns this show! Unlikely. Also don't think Ben has been there all this time given that he seemed to be watching the Euro match from his house, some of his recent social media activity took place in late night if LA time, but would have been over night if east coast, and Georgia was apparently doing studio work in LA after the "sunset pic" you mentioned and was having brunch with friends just fiveish days ago. All makes me think unlikely.
Though I would just like to mention, P-town just issued new mask guidance given the massive covid outbreak going on there even amongst the vaccinated. And Truro, Flo's location tag from Saturday, is apparently about five miles away. Well at least Georgia and the cinematographer were wearing masks in their photo. *rolls eyes*

Alright. . . I mentioned before that Flo had posted pics from Truro last year up thread. And honestly, that video from Ben seemed to be way too tropical looking to be Cape Cod to me, but I've never been so I wasn't sure. But this pic? That's a proper palm, not one of the cold hardy varieties that *can* grow on the cape.
Do we think we're still sure they were ever in Cape Cod? Or did we just assume because of Flo's picture tag? Did they randomly film there for two days but are now continuing in California?
I have growing doubts.

I don’t know I guess I’m basically the same way with my HB posts without meaning it. Like if it’s a long distance friend I haven’t seen or talked to in a while I might post an old pic or a comment and wish them happy birthday, but for my closest friends and people I see regularly I would call them or wish them a happy bday in person so then also doing something on social media at that point would seem to just be for attention. Also if I were a normal person and friends with Ben I would most definitely NOT want him posting anything about me just to have the fan hive storm in and all this speculation. So it might be more out of respect than lack of pride in friendship…

 If she played a woman of color once I’d get it but all the time? She knows it’s meant for women of color so that’s her fault. In The Punisher her character was meant for a latina, which she is not… like most of her roles. She didn’t abuse anyone but she dates/dated a sexual abuser for years and went far enough to shame his victims and call them liars, that’s why she’s an abuse apologist. The way some of you talk about the fanpages totally passes off as like you think they’re crazy for not liking her.

R476 That still didn’t answer the question….how do you know any of these roles were MEANT for a Latina? Particularly if the casting details aren’t public. Not sure if you know how auditioning works but it’s up to the casting director, showrunner etc for who is selected for a role, the actor has no power in the decision. Also not sure how you are using the term Latina. If the role was looking for someone with Latin origins or that could reasonably fit into a story line of being the daughter of immigrants or something then having Latin European heritage (she has stated she is a mix including Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, etc) is technically fitting especially considering the historical ties between Latin European and Latin American countries. It’s not exactly the same as casing a white person in a role meant for a black person. And I’m sure we have all had friends who have dated people we don’t like but I’m not sure what that has to do with Ben. Was he supposed to quit the Punisher season 2 because his coworker was dating someone who may or may not have done something bad in the past? Have you guys ever actually held a job?

In equal amounts, we are both laughing and annoyed at the fact that he, having had numerous little bumps in the smooth road of his public persona so far this year, has chosen a controversial person to appear in whatever this project is.

He knows we don’t like her or JH and he just doesn’t care, he’s still friends with them so let him get on with it and take whatever backlash that creates. We already know he didn’t like the heat he got after Montanagate but he still didn’t get out of the kitchen. No doubt he’ll just do the same when this all blows up in his face.
You’ll be pleased to hear I’m finished commenting on this ridiculous allegation that we’re defending Ms Lima.

R506 She’s in Portugal now, not quite over the ‘Grand Tour’ vibes yet. He probably sent her the sunflower bouquet (hence his IG story) and you’ll note she doesn’t say who sent those. Then she’s in a field of sunflowers and quoting Here Comes the Sun.
But - crash! down comes that fantasy - she quotes *that* line.
I feel like that’s an insult to him right there! ‘Here I am frolicking about in a whole *field* of sunflowers, you loser, go fuck off with your tiny little bouquet of them. I’m husband-shopping.”

The baiting of JH with that video right after his story with that song and the fucking stupid tiny emojis, I’m so done with her and honestly both of them! She has been traveling for over a month, that must be costing so much. If this is some secret signs they are giving each other I just once again want to throw up. Him liking her posts again, furthering this shit. So right he doesn’t care about his fans or anything. Like I said before selfish!

R510 At least one person called her out on the Covid travelling, and another (a BB fan) asked her if they were speaking in code. And told her to go off and get a Greek god, lmao.

Dear Ben - should you be reading this thread and think it‘s funny to feed the trolls with emoji bs etc, think again. You are upsetting your faithful fans too, they are following this as well, those who are willing to pay for things you produce. You can be friends or lovers with JH, I don‘t care, but don‘t endanger your career by riling up people who probably know more about you than you‘d like and in the meantime disappointing those who loyally support you. This thread comes up very early on Google for you, and you have a lot of presence through S&B at the moment, so don‘t think your antics will only be noticed by the few active posters here. If you‘re not reading this and all of that stuff is purely coincidental I just wasted 1,99 on you.

Why do I get the feeling this formerly obscure BB thread on a site most people haven’t heard of has suddenly gone main stream lately? And yes there may be more trolling on here than other places but you all wouldn’t be here if you weren’t all mostly fans and R512 is correct it is very easy to find now and there are definitely people here who know Ben better than others. I don’t think he’s intentionally trolling his trolls, but if so he will soon learn that playing stupid games wins stupid prizes. His desire for privacy his valid and respectable and hints about professional projects can be fun for people to speculate and figure out, but if all this stuff is actually related to a real or fictional relationship with JH he’s playing with fire and it might come back to bite him.

It does not all have to be about JH - but after the girl account follow and unfollow, when he was alerted, he defo realised what was going on here. It was even announced on this thread that a post would be coming after the semifinal and boom: there was the lionheart. Just like the sunset and name and heart change on the Harry Burns account were immediate reactions to whatever went on in here. Just too many coincidences. And everybody can read it and follow up on it on Instagram because the fangirls save every story and every post ever made like an encyclopedia.

Well, since we know he keeps up with his reviews and iMDB, etc, it’s a safe bet he reads this thread. So Ben, hi! We would love to get back to liking you. But a lot of your behavior & life choices are akin to a teenager or early 20s who has no awareness of the impact of said decisions. The company you keep calls your question into character— this holds true at any job, public or private sector. And this is a group that wants to hold you accountable for having a private persona in hypocritical juxtaposition to your public one. It’ll only get worse if & when you achieve the level of professional success you crave, because with that comes heightened scruitiny.

If someone wants to keep their privacy private, fine. But don‘t toy with people who are impacted by you. You chose a profession were people will be impacted by you and the way you handle yourself and they will react. Especially if you are aware of the scrutiny. You can whatsapp, signal, smoke sign, drum, phone, videosnapchat with JH and all of your female friends. But Instagram is public and meant to be public, and if you act as your blue hook account, it‘s all on you what you do there. So stop the bullshitting please. It‘s upsetting and alienating the wrong people. Maybe even potential employers, friends or lovers. Everybody is an internet stalker these days.

All the while she is vaca flirting with other men, sounds like the best relationship ever.

In my fantasies of Benji, he's on his knees with my cock down his throat. I'm holding him by his hair and fucking his face hard. He has tears running down his face and his cock is so hard it's dripping, but I won't let him touch it, because he's my little bitch. When I let him have some air, he begs me to fuck his asshole, so I tell him to bend over and present himself to me for my approval. Then I spread his tiny cheeks apart and ram my cock in his fudge hut, and he screams in ecstasy and shoots his wad while I fuck him hard until I'm ready to come, then I have him open his mouth and cum all over his face and have him clean my cock.

I mostly agree with you all but also how sad would it be if those hints Ben was trying to drop were actually related to his new project just like he has done in the past with things like hinting at his audio book, then JH independently happened to pick that song and bam now suddenly people think it’s related to JH and are furious about it when it’s actually not lol. I definitely think that song change is related but who knows if it’s trying to correct an accidental misunderstanding created by a poor song choice at the request of Ben or if they see the negative backlash and are trying to correct it.

R539 I still can’t believe she chose that line to quote. Firstly because of all the suffering *other people* have been through with this pandemic, and as usual with her, it’s all about Meeeee. And secondly as mentioned it’s not very complimentary to BB when he spent part of it with her.
I’ve been down the rabbit hole and back, with all the emojis/hidden message shit. Let’s face it, it can be pulled about and made to fit whichever scenario we want to suggest.
If you want to think they’re still together or are hooking back up, I just think it’s telling that she’s out there partying and posing and air kissing and all that shit and he’s stuck at home singing his hidden message covers as usual and posting IG stories with emojis. Get back on your private IG ffs.
If you want to think he’s promo-ing this Rise Up thing (featuring another toxic female) then yeah, that fits too. He’s definitely been a hint-dropper in the past (audio book recordings springs to mind). I wish I’d paid more attention to his pre-S&B posts, as I didn’t notice any little eclipse emojis at the time but if so, then that sets a precedent.
I can’t make up my mind whether it’s a music video for him or a short for the two film-makers. Or totally something else.

I checked a couple of big fan accounts, and one had a little snark about FL but nothing on JH, and of course BBG and her followers are still all up on their "BEN IS AN INFALLIBLE GOD" bullshit in lockstep.

Fuckboys don’t travel to Montana for double date vacays during pandemics, or do restaurant brunches with your friends. They expend bare minimum effort & keep the non-bedroom activity under wraps and to a minimum. Booty call on speed dial, if you will. So I suspect that he leads a somewhat inflexible life due to long location shoots, and while he wants something steadier/more stable, isn’t ready or willing to commit prematurely to cohabitation or marriage in order to achieve that. The secretiveness absolutely does not help, as it doesn’t foster security or confidence in what is there. That’s my take.

|by Anonymous||reply 561||July 21, 2021 8:33 PM|
Why do people think S&B isn’t a proper job? Just because it’s fantasy? Maybe it’s just because I’m a fan of the genre but I think Game of Thrones, Westworld, and the eye watering amount of money Amazon is pouring into Lord of the Rings has gotten rid of the notion that big budget fantasy/sci-fi shows are somehow less prestigious than movies. First season shows usually have cautious budgets and don’t get emmy’s but Netflix is definitely investing in S&B at the expense of some of their other shows. If you look at the graphs of how many people watched the first season of GoT vs how many watched the last you will see why streaming companies chase that kind of trajectory and potential and the first season is just about building momentum. It was relatively well received before they even got into the fan favorite content of the other books. With the tech giants like Apple and Amazon investing in this space (especially the MGM acquisition) data is going to become a much bigger factor in how decisions are made and speaking from the inside, this increased chatter across a variety of platforms is actually doing him more favors than harm. So keep it up little darlings because we are all still secretly rooting for Benny B as the underdog James Bond pick.
|by Anonymous||reply 562||July 21, 2021 8:58 PM|
I think it is more the basis of the show that people feel it is not exactly a leg up in his career. The fact that the content is more in line with twilight than these other epic fantasy’s dramas. It did well, but honestly I don’t see Netflix giving it more than two seasons. Honestly there are people who will watch anything on Netflix. If we weren’t in a pandemic, idk if it would have done as well.
Benny B as James Bond ha. He is not cool enough and the A listers will have way more of a chance than him. Now he has aligned himself with an influencer/reality tv star and not some A list actress, or even someone respectable, that doesn’t make him popular in those circles. I was still seeing that Candice pic in the happy birthday messages to JH, people really think that is her. Those models are more connected to those bigger projects than BB. He had a chance and made stupid decisions because he is insecure and I’ll be surprised if he gets past the old man in fantasy dramas with problematic content concerning young woman and older men phase.

R562 100% agreed. S&B is a hit and has raised his profile with a new generation, so nothing to sneeze at. BB from 2015 onward is an entirely different actor, IMO, than pre-2015.

And Netflix have already had to have short delays on two shows (Bridgerton being one of them) due to positive tests amongst the cast?
Things ain’t what they used to be, folks.
But one thing never changes - BB’s IG awol moments. C’mon guy, drip us the next few hints.
Is it just me or does GMK seem a bit too enthusiastic for this project to be a BB music vid? Beginning to think it’s one of her projects rather than BB warbling stuff for 3 minutes. Whatever it is I hope we’re not getting a reprise of TP S2 between BB and FL as that was heave-worthy, I hated that whole storyline.

The Netflix Geeked acc reacted harmlessly to a post that said Ben looked like Jessie‘s dad by posting three skulls and now the fans think that it was an ageist slur against Saint Ben. I don‘t envy him for those stans. No sense of humor whatsoever.

Yeah the children seemed a bit riled up. He does look like Jessie’s dad, it’s creepy. Also knowing in real life he is old as fuck and they are taking bts pics of him right in her face. Creepy, just no. We all know Ben likes them young, but just no.

Ouch. Well, he’d have a better handle on 40 if he hadn’t dragged out his 20s for an extra decade.

I actually think he only gets them young. When I watched the Westworld group interviews I always thought he had a thing for Lisa Joy and him liking most of her posts now… well … but the elder ones probably see the manchild that he is. His older co-stars like Heigl and Reevah etc treat him like a puppy.

R587 Because women of the same age as him who are moms recognize that he’s putzing around like an overgrown child.

I don’t know when 40 became old as fuck lol but he still looks like he’s 30 and probably attracts younger women. I’ve been dating 40ish year olds since I was 25 though so I guess I just grew into my taste over the last decade haha but I think BB has only really become attractive in the last 5 years. He was too pretty before that. I also thought he had a thing for Lisa Joy especially the way he talked about her writing. Most of his costars who are his same age like FL and Heigl and Revah were all in relationships or married when he worked with them but at least they are all friends after so he can’t be that horrible of a human that some people here make him out to be. It seems like he’s more comfortable with that age group or older like Lisa but can more easily get the younger ones

R587 Yeah I noticed he was liking just about every one of her posts. Thought he might be angling for a spot on WW4??!

R590 I think so too and the (at least) two random BB appreciation posts from various HBO social media accounts seemed to be hinting at something but nothing has been announced yet

I don‘t think he‘s a bad person, I just think he‘s bad at his PR and still trying to be popular with the cool kids. Which never works.

I’m not sure why, but I have it in my head that I don’t see him partnering with someone who already has kids or a kid. I could be basing that on absolutely nothing of substance.

He said in some interview that Golddigger made him think about what if some has kids already but that there are priorities and blabla. Very romantic.

R587 R589 I always got a ‘schoolboy with favourite teacher’ vibe between him and LJN. He’d need to be careful not to upset Jonathan if he *was* simping over Lisa!!

R594 Ah yes, he was trying to diplomatically tiptoe around it the topic of a woman who already has kids. I think he also said he like to have his own kid(s).

R595 haha yeah getting on the wrong side of the Nolans would definitely not help his career

Well, dude, if it‘s love, real love, all of that doesn‘t matter. If they have kids, or don‘t have them, or don‘t want them or can‘t have them. Seen it all. So many couples who did the kid thing and it broke them apart. So just roll with it and stop searching for the ideal female for breeding, just find someone who enjoys being around the real you. Amen.

So this is getting dangerously close the the limit in record time…will a new thread be started or is this the end of the BB DL saga for now?
