Ashlen Diaz is an American music promoter who is best recognized as the former girlfriend of singer, rapper, songwriter, and record producer Austin Richard Post, a.k.a. Post Malone, known for the multiple award-winning single 'Rockstar'. She worked for Cashaveli TX from 2013 to 2016, and later began working as an independent concert promoter. She also promoted her ex-boyfriend Malone prior to his rise to fame in February 2015 with the release of his debut single 'White Iverson'. During the time the couple was together, she supported him in his endeavors and was often seen with him in public. While she is a shy and reserved person who is not very active on social media, she also often used to promote his music on the internet.
Rise to Stardom
Ashlen Diaz got her share of fame primarily because of her relationship with rapper Post Malone, whom she had supported since before he had earned widespread recognition. She was still working as a music promoter for Cashaveli TX when she met the future musical star, and had helped him book nightclub shows, thus furthering his career. They eventually began dating at some point in mid-2015. The news was first made public by him via a post on Twitter in December in which he wished her happy birthday and professed his love for her. This instantly created a media-frenzy about her identity and she has remained a favorite for tabloids due to her tumultuous relationship with Malone.

Family & Personal Life
Ashlen Diaz was born as Ashlen Nicole Diaz on December 19, 1995 in Dallas, Texas, United States. She has Spanish ancestry. She has mentioned in an Instagram post that she is actually very shy and suffers from anxiety, but is trying to be more open.
Ashlen Diaz began dating rapper Post Malone sometime in 2015. According to reports, she knew him since before he became famous following the release of his debut single 'White Iverson'. In fact, as a music promoter, she had enough faith in his talents to book a few of his nightclub shows during the time the now-popular rapper was struggling early on in his career. While both of them were initially quiet about their relationship, it was eventually revealed by Malone after he wished her happy birthday by twitting on December 19, 2015: "happy Texas time birthday to most wonderful thing to ever happen to me Ashlen Nicole Diaz. I love u".
Even in the following months, they remained tight-lipped about the affair, but she continued to support him by appearing alongside him at various events and occasionally posting images of them together on social media. However, during an interview with 'The Breakfast Club' in 2016, Malone admitted that they were having an on-and-off relationship by stating "It’s tough having a balance, between dedicating my life to music and dedicating time for Ashlen." While speaking to her fans in a Q&A in June 2018, she also reiterated the same by revealing that despite being together for years, they sometimes "take breaks".
Ashlen Diaz, however, made a post on Instagram following his performance at the '2018 MTV Video Music Awards' in August 2018 and congratulated him on his award win for the hit single 'Rockstar'. She also posted "Thank God" on her Instagram story after his broken plane safely landed following his VMA win. Nevertheless, by the end of the month, Malone was spotted getting cozy with a woman aboard a yacht while on vacation in St. Tropez. This caused rumors that he was cheating on her, even though 'US Weekly' subsequently reported that the photos were taken during a music video shoot.
Controversies & Scandals
In November 2018, 'US Weekly' revealed citing sources close to Ashlen Diaz and Post Malone that they had finally called it quits a couple months ago after dating for about three years. While some stated that the split was mutual, others noted that she was "pretty upset about their breakup". There were also rumors that she had shared details about their break-up drama on Instagram, but deleted the post later. Interestingly, she soon went on a deleting spree and removed most of their pictures together from her social media accounts, but a few survived the onslaught, like an image of them side-by-side on bed from March 2017. Soon after the news of their split broke, Malone was spotted with a mystery woman, who looked quite like the girl on the yacht, while walking through George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. The fact that he had a new girlfriend was confirmed after Malone ranted on Twitter in late February 2019, blaming some of his fans for trying to ruin his new relationship after they found out and revealed risqué images of her from an Instagram account that was later deactivated.
