During the year before Selena Gomez got into a serious relationship with The Weeknd and after she'd (mostly) closed the book on her on-off ex Justin Bieber, the singer briefly dated fellow musician Zedd in the first half of 2015. (They collaborated on "I Want You to Know.")
Speculation they were an item started that January, when she posted an Instagram saying she missed him.
And he also posted one of her:
That being said, they didn't officially confirm or deny their connection. But they didn't need to for Zedd's world to turn completely upside down. "Reporters were calling my parents," he tells Billboard in the outlet's new cover story. "People were hacking my friends' phones. I was pissed. [Though] I kind of knew what I was getting myself into. She is one of the most talked about people in the world, but I had no idea how much that would change my life."
Gomez did admit they had a fling after it ended, during a July 2015 radio interview. The host asked about her response to Diplo's claims that her and Zedd's romance was a publicity stunt. "First off, it's very interesting that Diplo would think he knew about my personal life, but he doesn't," Gomez started then. "I adore Anton [Zedd] a lot and I definitely had a thing with him, which was nice."
Zedd declined to tell Billboard whether he's dating anyone now; understandably, he's keeping his love life under wraps.
