- Justin Bieber shared a video of himself confronting Charlie Puth about FaceTime on Monday.
- He told put it hurt his feelings when the singer yelled “Fuck you, Justin Bieber” onstage in 2016.
- “You can’t be serious. That wasn’t real,” Puth replied. “Bro, I was being facetious.”
Justin Bieber shared footage of a FaceTime call with Charlie Puth on Monday, during which he confronted the “Light Switch” singer for dissing him onstage six years ago.
“We never really got to talk about years ago, when you said ‘fuck you’ onstage to me,” Bieber said.
When Puth started laughing, Bieber replied, “I don’t think it’s very funny, to be honest.”
During a 2016 show in Dallas, Puth quipped “Fuck you, Justin Bieber” while performing “We Don’t Talk Anymore,” a duet with Bieber’s ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.
Puth and Gomez were rumored to be dating at the time, which Puth later confirmed in an interview with Billboard, describing their relationship as “very short-lived, very small, but very impactful.”
However, when the clip from the concert began circulating online, Puth issued a public apology on Twitter and said it was “meant to be a joke.”
He echoed this sentiment during the FaceTime with Bieber, but the “Love Yourself” singer insisted, “It hurt my feelings.”
“You can’t be serious. That wasn’t real,” Puth said. “That was like, a fucking thing that was completely blown out of proportion.”
When Bieber asked him to explain, Puth continued, “Bro, I was being facetious. I was being completely sarcastic.”
He added: “I also can’t tell if you’re joking right now.”
The video ends with Bieber mumbling that he doesn’t “appreciate it,” then bursting out in laughter.
It’s unclear whether the video was meant to be humorous — or whether the call was preplanned — but Puth said in 2017 that he and Bieber had already made amends.
“There might have been a lot of emotion that night, a lot of thoughts going through my head and maybe just, sort of, maybe I shouldn’t have said that. It’s not really fair to him,” he said during an interview on Dan Wootton’s “Bizarre Life” podcast.
“We’ve come across each other since then and he posted that he liked my song ‘Attention’ on his Instagram, so we are good,” he added.
