Do These 6 Stars Just Want Attention? ’cause They Totally Dissed Charlie Puth
June 12, 2018
We all know that
is super talented and Charlie Puth all over the radio right now. However, just because he’s crushing it in terms of his career, that doesn’t mean he hasn’t gotten into his fair share of beef with other famous celebs. We know… what a bummer.
Although we always like to believe that our faves are not problematic at all, the reality is that that’s simply not true. In fact, there have been several celebs who’ve come at Charlie hard for many different reasons. Whether it was
an ex who felt slandered, a musician who accidentally shaded him or a washed-up boyband threatened by his fresh sound, Charlie’s been dissed more than a handful of times. Are you wondering which celebs dared to diss the “How Long” singer? Check it out:

Although she's certainly not an A-lister herself,
's mom, Selena Gomez Mandy Teefey, is very familiar with the entertainment industry. Of course, that's not all that surprising since Selena's been acting and singing from a very young age. However, what may be a little surprising is that Mandy has a lot of opinions about today's popular musicians, and they're not all great.
That being said, it seems like Mandy Teefey is not a big fan of Charlie Puth. How do we know? In October of last year, Mandy
went off on Instagram, saying, "I will drive my car into a wall if I hear Charlie Puth or Shawn Mendes one more time. We don't need to hear them every other song. Yes, I'm really mad about this lol." Ugh... why'd she have to bring Shawn into this?

Like her mother, it doesn't seem like Selena Gomez is much of a fan of Charlie Puth either. Since the two collaborated on their hit song, "We Don't Talk Anymore," rumors have been rampant that, at some point, they actually dated. Eventually, Charlie came forward admitting that the two did, in fact, have a
brief fling that was "short-lived" and "very impactful," but it doesn't seem like both parties were in agreement about that.
Interestingly enough, Sel didn't even have time to respond to Charlie's statement. Instead, her reps insisted that they
never actually dated. WTF?! To make matters even worse, the two unfollowed one another on social media, so we guess they really don't talk anymore. YIKES.

We know what you're thinking: Charlie Puth and
Wiz Khalifa collaborated on "See You Again," so how could Wiz have dissed him? While that's true in many ways, Wiz did mildly diss Charlie at the Billboard Music Awards back in 2016.
When it was time to go up and accept the award for "See You Again" in the Top Rap Song category, he seemed to have forgotten to thank someone. To be fair, Charlie's not a rapper, so he didn't really have anything to do with the win itself, but still, fans think it would've been the right thing to do. Instead, Wiz gave shoutouts to the other rappers in the category, as well as his management, his family and his friends... but not Charlie. Oops!

Although their friendship was brief, we pretty much all remember that short period of time when PDA-filled photos surfaced of Charlie and
. While we never exactly got confirmation on the status of their relationship, we watched it all go up in flames in an instant when the two engaged in a full-on Twitter feud. Bella Thorne getting cozy on the beach
When an old article surfaced online of Bella hanging out with her ex
Tyler Posey, Charlie apparently freaked out and went on Twitter to voice his frustrations. Of course, things got ugly between the two. Unfortunately for Charlie, though, Bella later opened up to Harper's Bazaar saying that Charlie "is publicly slandering my name and making me seem like I'm a whore." What a mess!

When Charlie put Bella on blast on social media,
immediately came to her defense. In one simple tweet, Keke wrote, "Why couldn't you have just texted @bellathorne in private if you were confused? The interview is dated. So sorry Bella, ignore." Wow... what a great friend! Keke Palmer
Apparently, Charlie jumped to conclusions thinking Bella was playing with Tyler's heart as well as his own, but really, he should've double-checked since the article was a bit outdated. Ultimately, when all was said and done, the whole debacle made everyone look bad, except for Keke, who's still an amazing friend in our eyes.

Out of all the celebs on this list, we have to say that the most savage Charlie Puth disses probably came from one of your absolute favorite '90s boy bands, the
. Luckily, their disses towards the "Attention" singer seemed to have been all in good fun since they were intentionally roasting him on the show Backstreet Boys Drop the Mic.
Throughout the show, the guys referred to Charlie as a "wanna-Bieber," and also called him a "Harry with no styles." Don't worry, though, because Charlie got his revenge. When it was his turn to roast, he dissed
Nick Carter directly, saying, "At one point you went solo, I know you were tryin'. But your songs just sounded like a German Shepherd dyin'" WOW.
