Benji Krol was born to an Argentine mother named Alejandra and a British and Polish father named Aleksander. He also has two siblings; his siblings' names are unknown. Shortly after he was born, the family moved to Canada and later Switzerland, where Benji grew up. He now lives with his family in Madrid, Spain, where he also completed his schooling at a local high school. Benji is currently enrolled in a private university in Spain but has not yet revealed the major he is pursuing. He has always wanted to be an actor and a model ever since he was young.
In August 2020, Benji and his boyfriend Jorge Garay were embroiled in controversy after a 15-year-old boy revealed his encounters with the two influencers through an anonymous Twitter account, in what was deemed a child grooming effort. Jorge, he claimed, had emailed him intimate FaceTime screenshots of Benji. The youngster said that "they took advantage of my friendship and exploited and pressured me, a minor, into doing what they wanted for sexual satisfaction." To back up his assertions, the individual produced screenshots of call logs and communications. On Twitter, the allegations got a lot of traction. Following a suicide attempt, Benji made his first public statement at the end of August. It wasn't his first try, he added, and it wasn't because of the claims. Jorge had shared intimate images of Benji with his other friends without his permission, according to Benji. Following the scandal, the two broke up.

Benji has had a difficult time since the grooming claims surfaced. The news has sparked outrage from millions of people, and his reputation is likely irreparably damaged. According to various sources, he has recently stated that he had attempted suicide as a result of the rumours, although he claims the attempts were for unrelated reasons.
He claims to belong to the LGBTQ community. In his tweet in October 2019, he said he finds everyone attractive when one of his fans asked him if he dates boys or girls. Moreover, in his YouTube video titled My Dating Life, he confirmed that he is bisexual.
Benji hasn’t been in the spotlight for something he’s embarrassed about only because of the grooming situation. His nudes were exposed to the internet earlier in 2020 after he was hacked. He wasn’t the only social media influencer to experience this, sadly.
