The social media site also posted an Instagram story post of Benny that he recently shared.
In the stories, he holds up a handwritten note that he says is from his girlfriend – as he holds it in the air, slightly blocking a woman sleeping in front of him – who apparently resembles Selena.
The handwritten note read: 'I'm so bloated, don't squeeze or hold my waist tonight or I'll shat a hole through the sheets. I love you', with a smiley face, a picture of a heart and air being released drawn on it.
He captioned the image of the letter and the woman who appears to be a sleeping Selena: “My girlfriend left this warning for me on my pillow.”
