Selena Gomez is one of the most famous women in the world, and people will talk about any and every aspect of her life, whether it鈥檚 reacting to the star opening up about her 90 days in treatment or the controversy around her choice to appear in a Woody Allen movie. And fans *really* love it when there鈥檚 a tidbit or two about the 25-year-old鈥檚 romantic status. Just ask Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, or super producer Zedd, who just revealed how dating the 鈥淔etish鈥 singer changed his life (and NOT in a good way).

The two first sparked relationship rumors when they collaborated on Gomez鈥檚 鈥淚 Want You to Know鈥 single back in 2015 (which reached number 17 on the 鈥淗ot 100鈥 in March of that year). Now, in a new interview with Billboard, the 27-year-old producer 鈥 who has also worked with Kesha and Liam Payne (among many other top stars) 鈥 is opening up about why the brief romance wasn鈥檛 all sunshine, roses, and heart-eye emojis.

Zedd told Billboard that interest in their relationship, and in him, specifically, became very invasive, very quickly. 鈥淩eporters were calling my parents,鈥 he revealed. 鈥淧eople were hacking my friends鈥 phones. I was pissed.鈥

Though he says he 鈥渒ind of knew鈥 what he was getting himself into, he didn鈥檛 realize the magnitude of it. 鈥淪he is one of the most talked-about people in the world, but I had no idea how much that would change my life.鈥

These days, he prefers to keep his life relatively private. And after an experience like the one he went through with Gomez, we can鈥檛 say we blame him.
