2015 has been an interesting year in Selena Gomez's love life. Following her highly publicized heartbreak over Justin Bieber, we began seeing hints of a budding relationship with DJ and music producer Zedd through the form of cute Instagram posts and then a song collaboration released back in February. It was a young love we all were rooting for, only to have our hearts broken when Diplo claimed the whole affair was merely a publicity stunt to promote their track, "I Want You To Know."

Now, Gomez has finally, though rather belatedly, responded to the accusations that their relationship was fake, telling a New Zealand radio station,"First off, It’s very interesting that Diplo would think he knew about my personal life, but he doesn’t. I adore Anton [Zedd] a lot and I definitely had a thing with him, which was nice.”

So there we have it. Just as we'd suspected, Gomez and Zedd once "had a thing," after all. And now that we know for sure, is it too late for them to start back up again?
