Bella Thorne‘s seemingly complicated love life is something everyone has feelings about when LOL what does it matter to the world who she’s dating? It’s her life after all. But there is plenty of drama so, you know, we’re all tuning in with our popcorn in hand. Well, Bella has shared her side of the story once and for all about what really happened during that super public, kind of confusing love triangle between her, her ex-boyfriend Tyler Posey and (maybe?) one-time fling Charlie Puth. Basically, everything just got taken way out of context and blown up into something it totally wasn’t, at least according to Bella.
The actress stopped by The Jenny McCarthy Show, when she asked how she dealt with everything once you know, she was spotted getting cozy with Charlie when everyone thought she was still dating Tyler. And Charlie then took to Twitter to vent his ~feelings~ on the matter, apologizing to Tyler since he too was then convinced B and Ty were still a thing, even though they weren’t. She explained detail for detail, how it all went down and it literally was one giant misunderstanding.
“Honestly, Ty and I stopped dating and that was really difficult for me. It was definitely one of the hardest breakups I’ve been through,” Bella explained. “Basically, Ty and I stopped dating and Charlie had been tweeting about me for a while. He was trying to reach out to me. I had hung out with him twice. We went to the movies. He was cool. I was like, ‘You’re really talented. Holy sh-t. You’re f-cking great, dude.’ And then he invited me to Jingle Ball to watch him perform, and I had never done that before. So I was like this is cool, I get to watch behind the stage, especially because I was thinking of maybe going back into singing. So I thought this was a cool experience and then everything just got way blown out of proportion.”
OK so, it looks like Bella just saw Charlie as a friend and since he’s a musician, she just wanted to hang out and bond over their love of music. Fair enough. Perhaps Charlie read into it all a tad bit differently than Bella did, but then the Twitter rant no can forget went down and everything went up in flames.
“We weren’t even kissing in that photo. That photo makes it look like we’re about to kiss and we’re straight-up not about to kiss. I was a little bit hurt in that sense that it got out like that. Obviously, I had to text, uh, call Ty. And Ty wrote me like, ‘It’s all good.’ He actually came over my house later when I had come back into town, we were chill. I didn’t think it was going to be any of a problem because I knew personally that me and Ty were cool,” Bella said.
“And Charlie saw an old news article and he didn’t look at the date. And the date is old and it’s about me and Ty. In Charlie‘s defense, when he read it, it sounded like it was about me and Ty still being together,” Bella continued. “So he didn’t even text me though or talk to me about it. I just woke up and my bestie Alexa called me and was like ‘Yo, Charlie’s crazy, like those tweets. Bella go on Twitter right now.’ I go on and I’m like ‘Oh my goodness,’ and then I felt super bad because he really thinks I was still with Ty. So I kept calling him, he wouldn’t answer my calls. Then he just starts texting me I was like, ‘Yo, that’s, like, straight up a lie. Like, why’d you tweet that?’ and Ty calls me like ‘What’s all this about?’ He should have just called me, Charlie!”
So there we have it. Basically, Charlie probably could’ve avoided this whole mess if he had just called Bella. In the heat of the moment, he was most likely feeling hurt himself, so he took to Twitter to vent his feelings. With millions of eyes there though, might’ve not been the best medium to share, but hey, clearly he wanted to get some things off his chest. Currently though, Bella appears to be single, although she’s been linked to Scott Disick for a little while now. She went on to say that she and Scott were never really together and they didn’t ever hook up. Plus, she’s still friendly with the Jenner girls, whose sister Kourtney Kardashian is Scott’s ex-girlfriend he has three children with.
“I’m very friendly with Kylie and Kendall. Kylie and I used to be really close, and as far as I know, they’re super chill. I didn’t have any problem with them,” Bella said.
A bit of a complex web Bella has weaved but it seems she just wants to be on good terms with everyone. Nothing wrong with that.
