The 26-year-old actress confirmed she’s dating the frequently controversial vlogger and actor in a response to a fan tweeting, “I’m seeing rumors you are dating Logan Paul? Just wondering why you would do that.”
Despite the judgmental tone of the question, Bennet held back her own sass and gave a sincere response.
“Cause he‚Äôs kind, creative, funny, vibrantly curious about life, weird as f–k in all the best ways, a big dork, and he‚Äôs one of my best friends,” she tweeted back. “It doesn‚Äôt make sense to a lot of people, but it doesn‚Äôt have too. He’s changed my life for the better and I‚Äôve done the same for him.”
Paul was more tongue in cheek in his response.
hold on one second now. i haven‚Äôt confirmed anything. but. if i had the chance to date this so called ‚ÄúChloe‚ÄĚ girl, i would be an extremely lucky young man

Paul, who is 23, has 17 million YouTube subscribers. He generated national backlash earlier this year for posting a video featuring a dead body he found while hiking through Japan‚Äôs “Suicide Forest.” The video has been taken down and Paul apologized in a YouTube video titled “So Sorry.”
YouTube punished him by dropping him from the YouTube Red series “Foursome” and also prohibited advertisements on his videos.
Chloe’s response has drawn understanding and scorn from her followers. Here’s a sample of the debate unfolding in the replies to her tweet on Twitter.
He makes one mistake and he is criminal, let them live their life and love each other, as fans you should support their decisions no matter what do you think. If you really love and care about @chloebennet then let her love @LoganPaul.

There‚Äôs mistakes, and then there‚Äôs doing things you shouldn‚Äôt need to be told a wrong at his age. Spelling a word wrong is a mistake. Filming the dead body of somebody who killed themselves is heinous. Even at 10, I would have known that wrong.

As long as y‚Äôall are happy @cholebennet it doesn‚Äôt matter. I don‚Äôt see why people judging him still. He‚Äôs doing good. He‚Äôs owned up to his shit unlike most people. Y‚Äôall make a cute couple. @LoganPaul you‚Äôre a lucky fella! May y‚Äôall have a blessed relationship. ūüėĀūüôĆūüŹĽ
