Balancing life as both a regular teenager and a star influencer isn’t always easy!
That’s why Maddie Ziegler has made a conscious decision to keep her romantic life to herself — and we totally support it! The 17-year-old dancer, who’s set to star in the upcoming “West Side Story” remake, has been linked to Australian singer-songwriter Eddie Benjamin for a couple of months now, but that doesn’t mean she’s ready to pile on the PDA.
During a recent interview, Maddie got real about learning a valuable lesson after her split with a previous (and very public) boyfriend threw the internet into an out-of-control, shade-throwing tizzy. Moving forward, she plans to be a little more discreet with her relationship and encourages fans to do the same:
“I had a public relationship for two years, and I am never, ever going to make any relationship public as much as I did…On Instagram, people have assumed certain people that I am dating, but I’m just like, give it a rest,” she said.
