Dating a celeb comes at a price!

Zedd is no stranger to stardom. He’s teamed up with some of the industry’s biggest names — including Alessia Cara, Hailee Steinfeld and Liam Payne — on huge smash radio hits! But even he was shocked by the complete and utter lack of privacy Selena Gomez lives with.

In his latest interview, the German-native DJ got real on all things Selena. The two artists, who collaborated on “I want You To Know,” briefly dated back in 2015, and even though their relationship was short lived, Zedd says it had a lasting impression on his every day life, sky-rocketing him into the public eye:

“Reporters were calling my parents. People were hacking my friends’ phones. [Though] I kind of knew what I was getting myself into…She is one of the most talked about people in the world, but I had no idea how much that would change my life.”
