Bella Thorne and Charlie Puth React to Romance Rumors With Bizarre Tweets

By
Charlie Puth probably won't be talking to Bella Thorne anymore.
The 25-year-old singer took to Twitter on Thursday to address rumors that the two were romantically linked after pics of them locking lips in Miami were released last Sunday. Many fans were caught off guard by the steamy PDA-filled snaps, as the former Disney star was dating Teen Wolf actor Tyler Posey just a few weeks prior. At the time, Posey and Thorne never publicly announced they had split.
"I'm sorry… you know who you are," Puth, who denied Thorne was his girlfriend while chatting with ET at Y100's Jingle Ball 2016 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida, wrote. "I messed a lot of things up, I get it if we can't be friends… you know who you are."
"But if you could just come to your senses... you know who you are," his series of tweets continued. "I can't believe what I'm reading. No one should have their heart messed with like this, and I'm not going to be in the middle of it."
Even though he refrained from using Throne's name, he did mention Posey in a few of his posts.
"I don't know Tyler personally, but I know he shouldn't be treated this way," Puth exclaimed, adding, "she told me she was not with him anymore. This is all news to me" in response to a fan tweet. "I want nothing but peace for all," he continued. "I'm just removing myself from this."
Thorne quickly responded, sharing her side of the story in one brief tweet.
"Ty and I have been broken up for like over two weeks and Charlie and I ARENT DATING we are friends," the 19-year-old actress claimed. "That article was written forever ago."
Posey has yet to weigh in on the situation, but on Dec. 4, he replied to a Twitter post of a fan-created collage that featured pics of Thorne.
"What a f**king cutie," he wrote.
A few weeks later, on Dec. 17, Thorne tweeted, "I love you but I need another year alone." The post came just three days after she shared a "walking tumblr photo" of her and Puth side by side.
Thorne is featured in the latest issue of PAPER, and in her accompanying interview with the magazine, the Scream star got candid on her relationship with Posey, and explained why she's so open and honest on social media.
"[Friends and people I date] don't realize that social media is such a big thing in my life. So when you're in a relationship with someone who doesn't understand social media, it's a really big f**king challenge," she said. "If you're not willing to be down with that, I can't change that about me. You think I want paparazzi following my every move? You think I want people trashing me on the Internet all the time, talking s**t about me? No! But that is my life, and if you're dating me, you need to know that you have to take that on in a sense, too."
"For instance, dating Tyler, when we first started dating, paparazzi got a photo of us kissing outside and it sucked that people got that photo because we really didn't want it out at that time," she continued. "We were obviously dating and hanging out, but it just wasn't necessary to put that in front of everyone's face, you know? That one sucked."
