Charlie Puth is set to release his most heartfelt ballad yet. The artist sings of a “difficult” and traumatic breakup in his song, which is sarcastically named “That’s Hilarious.”
“It just rears its ugly head every time — sorry — every time I hear it,” the “Light Switch” singer said on Instagram, wiping away tears. “I’m also thrilled for you to hear it because I just heard the master, but it just sent me back to 2019, which was the f—king worst year of my life.”
Charlie went on to say that he had “the worst breakup of [his] life in 2019,”. “I simply wanted to sweep it under the rug and start anew,” he said.
Thankfully, Charlie appears to be in a better place now, although it does make us wonder who he dated in 2019. Who harmed him, even better? Let’s look at Charlie Puth’s past relationships.

Charlie Puth dated Selena Gomez in 2016 and then wrote “We Don’t Talk Anymore” about her.
Charlie Puth dated singer Selena Gomez for a short period of time in 2016. Although it is unclear how long they dated, she was the idea for his popular song “We Don’t Talk Anymore.”
In an interview with Billboard, he remarked, “I don’t kiss and tell, but the only way a song like that can come across as authentic is if there’s something else going on behind the scenes.” “And that was what was going on with Selena,” he continued. Very brief, very insignificant, but extremely significant. And that had a significant impact on me. … It was a delight working with her because she created such good emotion in that song. That’s why, despite its origins in a difficult period in my life, I’m always glad to sing it.”
Charlie Puth hung out with Bella Thorne in 2016 and things got messy.
Although Charlie Puth and Bella Thorne never dated, he did accuse her of cheating on her ex-boyfriend Tyler Posey. In the end, it was all a big misunderstanding that escalated into a full mess that we need to talk about.
Bella revealed what happened with Charlie in 2017 on SiriusXM’s The Jenny McCarthy Show.
“I spent two nights with him.” We went to see a film at the cinema. She continued, “He was cool.” “I was like, ‘Wow, you’re a true artist.’ What the f—k is going on here? ‘Dude, you’re an f—-ing legend.’ He then invited me to watch him perform at Jingle Ball.”
However, after they were seen together at Jingle Ball, rumors began to circulate that they were dating (despite the fact that they were not). Despite the fact that Bella was single, she had recently broken up with Tyler, and the rumors that she was dating Charlie were becoming unbearable.
Charlie had simply chance to come upon an old article about Bella and Tyler’s relationship and felt he had intruded (despite the fact that he had not seen the date). According to People, Charlie said on Twitter at the time, “I don’t know Tyler personally, but I know he shouldn’t be treated this way.” “She told me she was not with him any longer,” he said in a since-deleted follow-up tweet. “I’ve never heard of anything like this.”
Charlie Puth and Danielle Campbell allegedly dated in 2017.
Charlie acknowledged that he was “in a relationship” but was “done with dating people in the public” during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October 2017, according to Hollywood Life, implying that his romances will now be kept secret.
Fans who followed Charlie’s Instagram activities at the time thought his mysterious girlfriend was actress Danielle Campbell.
This short-lived romance has never been verified by Charlie or Danielle in public.
Charlie Puth and Halston Sage began dating in 2018.
According to BigTop40, Charlie made his Instagram debut alongside actress Halston Sage in September 2018, in a post that has since been deleted. It’s unclear how long they were together or if their romance lasted into 2019. Halston isn’t the girl mentioned in “That’s Hilarious,” however.
Charlie Puth’s song, “That’s Hilarious,” is supposedly about his breakup with Charlotte Lawrence.
While Charlie’s social media has been stripped of all proof of his courting with Charlotte Lawrence, E! confirmed via this tweet that the couple made their love public on Valentine’s Day in 2019.
After a few months of dating, Charlie declared on Twitter in September of that year that he was riding solo.
Only because I want ppl to stop asking the question….Yes I am single now…and please dont believe everything you read…thank you.

So, how did things work out between them? Of course, that’s a competition between Charlie and Charlotte! However, considering Charlie’s fragility in “That’s Hilarious,” we may presume this breakup was as traumatic as it gets.
