Singers Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez started dating after the latter had just broken up with Justin Bieber. However, in a recent interview, Puth opened up about his relationship with Gomez and said that it had really ‘messed him up’.
In an interview with Billboard magazine, Puth admitted it was hard to date her because she had someone else on her mind.
Puth said, “It’s 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 some shady things too, and she might have asked me, ‘How Long has this been going on?’”
“I don’t kiss and tell, but the only way a song like that can come across as real is if there’s something else going on behind the scenes. And that’s what was happening.
The pair had worked together on the hit track called We Don’t Talk Anymore which was released back in 2016.
After this interview, one knows that the lyrics of the song meant much more than just what was being sung.
Talking about his romance with Gomez, the See You Again crooner revealed, “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.”
Puth continued, “And she evoked such good emotion on that song, it was a pleasure working with her. That’s why I’m always happy to sing it, even though it came from a dark point in my life.”
According to reports, Gomez and Bieber are back together after a long split.
