The truth will set you free, Charlie Puth!
In a new interview with Billboard, the 26-year-old FINALLY admitted once and for all that he was romantically involved with Selena Gomez back in 2016 when the pair worked on the aptly-titled hit We Don’t Talk Anymore together. We could have told you that!
But here’s another tid bit… Charlie alludes to a certain Justin Bieber as to why things fizzled out!
When asked about his relationship with the 25-year-old songstress, the Attention singer revealed:
“I don’t kiss and tell, but the only way a song like that can come across as real is if there’s something going on behind the scenes. And that’s what was happening [with Gomez]. Very short-lived, very small, but very impactful. And it really messed me up. I’m trying to put this the best way possible: It wasn’t like I was the only person on her mind. And I think I knew that going in — what I was getting myself into.”
Charlie added of the song they created together:
“[The song] is about a particular moment in my life when someone very close to me wanted the attention of somebody else. When I found that out and we ended it, I might have done shady things, too, and she might have asked me, ├óΓé¼╦£How long has this been going on?!'”
Case closed. Carry on, bbs!
