Zedd Opens Up About The Downside Of Dating Selena Gomez

Remember when Selena Gomez dated Zedd? Their romance may not have lasted very long, but it certainly made an impact—on Zedd, at least.

In an interview with Billboard, Zedd (real name Anton Zaslavski) opened up about the effect his high-profile relationship with the former Disney Channel darling had on his life. "Reporters were calling my parents. People were hacking my friends' phones," the 27-year-old told the magazine. "I was pissed."

"[Though] I kind of knew what I was getting myself into," the DJ, who collaborated with Gomez on the song "I Want You to Know," admitted. "She is one of the most talked about people in the world, but I had no idea how much that would change my life."

Zedd and Gomez, 25, were first rumored to be dating in early 2015—though music producer Diplo would claim that the entire courtship was just on big PR stunt.

Gomez later denied that her relationship with Zedd was anything but real, telling People in July 2015, "I adore Anton [Zedd] a lot and I definitely had a thing with him, which was nice."

Gomez has since moved on to singer The Weeknd. As for Zedd? Who knows! He wouldn't tell Billboard if he was currently dating anyone.
