Charlie Puth has denied he was ever romantically involved with Selena Gomez for years but now, the singer finally admitted there was something between them back in 2016. Rumors that they dated have been going around ever since they collabed on the song ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ that same year. However, both artists have been denying it until now.
During a brand new interview, the man admitted while discussing their duet song, that they briefly dated.
‘I do not kiss and tell, but the only way a song like that can come across as real is if there is something going on behind the scenes. And that is what was happening. Very short-lived, very small, but very impactful. And it really messed me up. I am trying to put this the best way possible: It was not like I was the only person on her mind. And I think I knew that going in — what I was getting myself into,’ Charlie said.
It sounds like Puth is claiming that Selena’s inability to forget about Justin Bieber took a huge toll on their short lived relationship.
In fact, back in 2016, while performing the song at a concert, Chalrie made it very clear that he was feuding with the Biebs when, amid the lyrics, he said ‘F*** you, Justin Bieber.’
Now, he went on to say that the song ‘is about a particular moment in my life when someone close to me wanted the attention of someone else. When I found that out and we ended it, I might’ve done shady things, too, and she might have asked me, ‘How long has this been going on?!’’
