Charlie Puth: From Serial Dater to Finding Happiness with Childhood Friend

Charlie Puth, one of the biggest pop stars in the world today, has been romantically linked to several beautiful women such as Selena Gomez, Bella Thorne, and Hailee Steinfeld.

Charlie Puth, born in 1991, has a string of hit songs to his name, including “See You Again,” “We Don’t Talk Anymore,” “Attention,” “How Long,” “Cheating On You,” “One Call Away,” “Dangerously,” and “I Don’t Think I Like Her Anymore.”

On July 22nd, Charlie Puth will make his first appearance in Vietnam, performing at the 8Wonder music festival in Nha Trang. Besides his music career, fans are also interested in his personal life. He has gained a reputation as a ladies’ man in showbiz, having had tumultuous relationships with renowned beauties Selena Gomez, Bella Thorne, Charlotte Lawrence, among others. However, Charlie Puth has now found happiness with his childhood friend Brooke Sansone.

His relationship with Selena Gomez was associated with the chart-topping hit “We Don’t Talk Anymore.”
In 2016, the collaboration between Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez on the song “We Don’t Talk Anymore” took the world by storm, dominating charts in the United States and internationally. During this time, rumors circulated that the two had developed a romantic relationship while working together. However, both Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez denied the dating rumors.

But in February 2018, Charlie Puth unexpectedly revealed details about his relationship with Selena Gomez in an interview. “The only way a song like that is real is if there is some real-life experience that’s gone on behind it—and that’s what had happened with me and Selena. It was very short-lived, very small, but very impactful. And it really messed me up,” the singer candidly admitted.

He explained that their relationship ended abruptly because Selena’s heart was still drawn to someone else. “I feel like I’m not the only person in her mind. And I think I knew that going in—what I was getting myself into… It’s just kind of a whirlwind when you’re with somebody like that and you want to attract some attention to yourself. And when I realized that, I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just hanging out. This is just friends,'” Charlie Puth revealed.

Although Charlie Puth did not mention the name of the person Selena was still attached to, fans speculated that it was Justin Bieber. In March 2016, the singer had even cursed at Justin Bieber while performing “We Don’t Talk Anymore.” Charlie Puth later had to apologize for his outburst.

Because Selena couldn’t move on from Justin Bieber, she couldn’t progress further with Charlie Puth.

Although Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez did not have a long-lasting relationship, he cherishes the beautiful memories they shared and finds happiness whenever he performs “We Don’t Talk Anymore.” The singer expressed, “It’s brought back great feelings for me. I was really happy when I was singing that song with her. It was a very short-lived relationship, but it was still very impactful. And I thought she was really cool.”

After his brief romance with Selena Gomez, Charlie Puth publicly dated Disney princess Bella Thorne in late 2016. The couple’s first public display of affection was a beach kiss in Miami. Fans welcomed the new couple, but their relationship didn’t last long either.

On his personal social media account, Charlie Puth was devastated to discover that he was the “third party” because Bella Thorne hadn’t broken up with Tyler Posey before starting to date him. He expressed his disbelief, stating, “I can’t believe what I’m reading right now. No one should have their heart messed with like this, and I’m not going to be in the middle of it. I don’t know Tyler personally, but I know he shouldn’t be treated this way. She told me she was not with him anymore. This is all news to me. I want nothing but peace for all, I’m just removing myself from this.”

Six months after Charlie Puth accused him of being a “two-timer,” Bella Thorne finally spoke up and clarified that it was all a misunderstanding. She had broken up with Tyler Posey two weeks prior to her relationship with Charlie Puth, and their interactions were purely friendly. Bella Thorne stated, “I went on a dinner date with Charlie only twice. We didn’t even kiss in that picture everyone has seen. It wasn’t like a real-life-making-out kind of kiss. It was like a friendly, ‘Hey, I’m gonna leave.'”

Nevertheless, Charlie Puth poured his bitter feelings into the song “Attention” about his ex-girlfriend, with lyrics that expressed his resentment: “You just want attention, you don’t want my heart/Maybe you just hate the thought of me with someone new/Yeah, you just want attention, I knew from the start/You’re just making sure I’m never gettin’ over you.”
