We were all pretty sad to hear the news that Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson had split back in April of last year.

Sartorially dreamy and just plain adorable, we were always very behind Benevingne (although apparently we didn't work on the name mash-up with the same gusto).

More than a year on from the split Delevingne has finally opened up about the break-up for the first time, explaining that the stress and claustrophobia of lockdown had an effect on the relationship.

In an interview with Cosmopolitan US for the July/August issue Delevingne spoke out about past relationships, explaining that she tends to stay friends, or at least in good terms with previous partners.

'I don’t feel like I've ever left a relationship so f***ed up that it's been like, "I never want to speak to that person again",' she explained. 'I just love all the people I was ever with and want the best for them, you know what I mean? I want to see them grow, see them happy.'

She then briefly spoke about her much publicised split from Ashley Benson in April of last year, after two years together. While she didn't go into the details of the breakup she spoke about the toll lockdown had on the couple.

Acknowledging the impact the pandemic had on our lives and relationships Delevingne described it as 'the most trying time,' adding that it 'really makes or breaks you.'

She also touched on the experience of dealing with a breakup in the midst of lockdown and prolonged periods of isolation saying that it 'made me deal with it more, which was harder... or better. I don't kn0w. Everything is magnified in a pandemic.'
