Zedd Says He was “Pissed” During His Relationship with Selena Gomez

By  | 

Zedd & Selena Gomez kept their relationship short & sweet. In February 2015, Zeddlena made its couple debut at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party (the same one Jelena debuted at years prior), then followed it up with the release of “I Want You to Know” that same month. Two months later, though, the two called it quits.


But things reportedly ended amicably for Z (real name Anton Zaslavski) & S… according to the Wizards of Waverly Place alum, at least. “I adore Anton a lot,” Selena gushed in an early summer 2015 interview on New Zealand radio show The Edge Afternoons with Guy, Sharyn and Clint, “and I definitely had a thing with him, which was nice.”

HOWEVER, their whirlwind romance was far from glamorous. In an August 2017 interview with Billboard magazine, the 27-year-old German DJ opened up about his relationship with his 25-year-old former flame — and it was far from pleasant. “Reporters were calling my parents,” he began. “People were hacking my friends’ phones. I was pissed.”

“[Though] I kind of knew what I was getting myself into,” he added. “She is one of the most talked about people in the world, but I had no idea how much that would change my life.”


Since they fizzled out, Zedd’s been linked to his fair share of famous beauties, like Nina Dobrev & Bryana Holly. During the interview, though, he wouldn’t say if he’s currently dating anyone, famous or otherwise.
