Ashley Benson denies co-star romance

Ashley Benson laughed at reports she is in a relationship with her Pretty Little Liars co-star Tyler Blackburn.

The 23-year-old actress took to her Twitter page in what appeared to be an effort to pour scorn on an American tabloid that stated otherwise.

Multiple sources had "confirmed" news of a romance between the co-stars to Us Weekly.

"Haha @usweekly what are you gonna come up with next???" Ashley wrote. "Hilarious. Although I do love you @tylerjblackburn".

The pair play teen sweethearts Hanna Marin and Caleb Rivers in US television drama Pretty Little Liars.

Ashley and Tyler were first linked in April after they were spotted kissing at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California.

And the star's comments to the magazine about Tyler appeared to hint at a romantic relationship.

"He makes me laugh," Ashley declared to Us. "I have such a crush!"

Ashley previously dated Justin Bieber's "swagger coach" Ryan Good and has since also been linked to her Spring Breakers co-star James Franco.

The actress previously said she would be open to another relationship if the right person came along.

"If it happens, it happens," she told Seventeen magazine in April.

"I'm 23 - I could have a boyfriend tomorrow. But relationships are scary, because once you're in one, you have to face the idea of breaking up or staying together forever."
