Dating one of the world’s biggest pop stars was always going to have its downsides, but dating Selena Gomez is clearly on a whole other level. Zedd‘s short but “nice” relationship with Selena Gomez was no picnic for his loved ones because of her massive amount of fame.
The pair first fueled romance rumors in 2015 after Selena features on his “I Want You To Know” single and music video, however never publicly admitted they were an item. While Zedd continues to remain quiet about his current relationship status, we all know Selena has been dating The Weeknd since January and made their relationship official by attending the 2017 Met Gala together in May.
In a new cover story interview with Billboard, posted online yesterday (August 10,) the 27-year-old hitmaker recalled the worst part about dating Selena.
“Reporters were calling my parents. People were hacking my friends’ phones. I was pissed. [Though] I kind of knew what I was getting myself into,” he said. “She is one of the most talked about people in the world, but I had no idea how much that would change my life.”
Zedd also spoke about creating hits for Selena, Kesha, and Liam, and why more DJs should ”speak up” on Donald Trump. Read the full feature on Billboard here.
