Charlie Puth Addresses Selena Gomez Hookup Rumors: 'I'm Trying to Evade the Question'
By John Boone
Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez is the dating rumor that just won't die.
The 24-year-old singer collaborated with Gomez on his song, "We Don't Talk Anymore," which sent fans into a frenzy that the two may have been hooking up as well. Puth opened up about the rumors on 94.7 Fresh FM's The Tommy Show and said it was just that -- a collaboration.
"I'm trying to evade the question," Puth admitted after a hilariously bizarre segue. "We're friends, and I'm very happy to have collaborated with her. She's a really awesome singer."
"We did a song together and people think that there's more, but we just musically collaborated," he added. "I'm going on tour with her. She's gracious enough to let me come on a couple dates with her."
At which point, one of the hosts chimed in, "He said dates."
"Music!" Puth exclaimed.
"Selena Gomez going on dates with Charlie Puth," the host said with a laugh.
"Tour dates! Yes, tour dates," the Nine Track Mind singer clarified.
"She's really, really awesome and she's a really, really fantastic singer and kills it in the studio, and I love working with singers who just know what to do right away," Puth concluded.
Gomez, donning a flowy orange dress, New York Yankees baseball hat, and thigh-high black boots, was holding hands with Krost, a BFF of Gomez's close friend, Gigi Hadid, as the two left The Roxy music venue in Los Angeles, California.
