Who was Benjamin Keough dating before his death?
Prior to his tragic passing, Keough was in a relationship with Diana Pinto.
At this time, details about her personal life are unclear as she tends to stay out of the spotlight.
However, it was reported by PEOPLE back in 2020 that she worked as a post-production coordinator at Fox.
A week after Keough’s passing, Pinto wrote a touching tribute, stating that he will always be the love of her life.
“To the most beautiful boy I have ever seen,” Pinto began, via PEOPLE.
“You make everyone around you light up the second you step into the room. You touch every single soul around you. You love your Sunday morning toons and chocolate milk. I promise to always honor you on Fancy Fridays.
“Your laugh is heard all over the world now. You made me the luckiest girl in the world, to have you, to hold you, to love you and to be loved by you are the only things that have ever mattered. You are my whole world and my whole life, you live with me now every day in my heart, in my soul and in my mind.”

“I feel your silliness within me still making me laugh. Every second of every day I think of you, now I know the true meaning of grief. Please give me strength to keep going because I don’t know how I’m supposed to do this life without you.”
“You will always be the love of my life, my everything,” she concluded.
“Big pies little pies, te amo mas que el sol y la luna mi amorsito [I love you more than the sun and the moon my love].”
PEOPLE notes that they had been dating since at least September 2017.
