Charlie Puth is about to deliver his most emotional song to date. In his song, jokingly titled “That’s Hilarious,” the musician sings about a “tough” and terrible breakup. “It simply rears its ugly head every time — sorry — every time I hear it,” the “Light Switch” singer said on Instagram, tears streaming down his face. “I’m also excited for you to hear it because I just heard the master, but it immediately transported me to 2019, which was the f—king worst year of my life.”
Charlie went on to declare that 2019 was the “worst year of [his] life,” and that he experienced “the worst breakup of [his] life.” “All I wanted to do was sweep it under the rug and start again,” he explained. Charlie looks to be in a better place now, however, we’re curious as to who he dated in 2019. What’s more, who harmed him? Let’s take a look at some of Charlie Puth’s previous partnerships.
Charlie Puth dated Selena Gomez in 2016
In 2016, Charlie Puth dated singer Selena Gomez for a brief time. Despite the fact that it is unknown how long they dated, she was the inspiration for his hit song “We Don’t Talk Anymore.” “I don’t kiss and tell,” he said in an interview with Billboard, “but the only way a song like that can come across as real is if something else is going on behind the scenes.” He said, “And that was what was going on with Selena.” Very brief, very insignificant, yet very important. And that had a big influence on me. Working with her was a joy since she conveyed so much passion in that song. That’s why, despite its roots in a trying time in my life, I’m always grateful for it.
Charlie Puth hung out with Bella Thorne in 2016
Although Bella Thorne and Charlie Puth never dated, he accused her of cheating on her ex-boyfriend Tyler Posey. In the end, it was all a massive misunderstanding that turned into a full-fledged disaster that we need to address. On SiriusXM’s The Jenny McCarthy Show in 2017, Bella explained what occurred with Charlie. “I stayed with him for two nights.” We went to attend a movie at the theatre. “He was cool,” she continued. “I said to myself, ‘Wow, you’re a genuine artist.'” What the f—k is going on with this place? ‘You’re a f—-ing legend, dude.’ He then asked me to Jingle Ball to see him play.”
However, after they were seen together at Jingle Ball, speculations that they were dating began to surface (despite the fact that they were not). Bella was unmarried, but she had recently split up with Tyler, and the rumours that she was seeing Charlie were getting unpleasant. Charlie had merely stumbled across an old story regarding Bella and Tyler’s relationship and felt compelled to intervene (despite the fact that he had not seen the date). “I don’t know Tyler personally, but I know he shouldn’t be treated this way,” Charlie commented on Twitter at the time, according to People. In a since-deleted follow-up tweet, he stated, “She told me she was not with him any longer.” “I’ve never heard of anything,” says the narrator.
Charlie Puth and Danielle Campbell allegedly dated in 2017
According to Hollywood Life, Charlie said that he was “in a relationship” but was “done with dating people in public” during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October 2017, meaning that his relationships will henceforth be kept private. At the time, many who followed Charlie’s Instagram activity assumed his secret girlfriend was actress Danielle Campbell. Charlie and Danielle have never publicly confirmed their brief affair.
Charlie Puth and Halston Sage began dating in 2018
According to BigTop40, Charlie made his Instagram debut in September 2018 alongside actress Halston Sage in a now-deleted image. It’s unknown how long they dated or if their relationship extended into 2019. Halston, on the other hand, isn’t the girl referenced in “That’s Hilarious.”
