Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane has finally put an end to recent chatter that connected him to Hollywood actress and Spring Breakers co-star Selena Gomez.
Despite the steamy rumors, Gucci said he has never had a romantic relationship with the 20-year-old hottie.
"I don't know why they made such a crazy cruel rumor. Cause I think she was dating Justin Bieber at the time. Really I don't have no idea what was going on with Selena Gomez cause I only know her briefly from doing the Spring Breakers movie, and from what I know of her she's a nice young lady. I don't know her personally, I never dated her. I wish her the best, she's a talented actor and a nice girl, but she and I never dated." (The FADER)
Recently, "Spring Breakers" star Vanessa Hudgens admitted Gomez is a fan of Mr. Guwop.
Who on the set of Spring Breakers had musical tastes similar to your own? I'd say [co-star] Selena [Gomez] because like me, she's down with hip-hop and older hippie music. What kind of hip-hop would you guys listen to? Gucci Mane, Selena loves Gucci. He's like her favorite artist. What music has helped you get over a break-up or a hard time? As cliché as it is, probably Beyonce's "Single Ladies." That's basically my theme song. (SPIN)
Gucci's estranged pal Waka Flocka Flame recently gave his thoughts on why rumors about him and her hooking up emerged.
"That's just fans and I'm a friendly person, fans [felt] like I should mess with Selena," Waka said, explaining how it started. "I guess that's what my fans want me to do, but I [tweeted] out that you should respect her, [because] she got a career. "That was real random," he added, explaining that he hadn't actually known her name before the tweets began. "Honestly, I knew what it was but I never knew her name or nothing, till I put two and two together, then I Googled her and was like damn 'she look good.'" (MTV)
Back in March, widespread gossip suggested Gomez may have tore Gucci and Waka apart.
Not necessarily best known for staunch commitment to his declarations, Gucci Mane has made the executive decision to relieve Waka Flocka Flame of his Brick Squad 1017 post. The reasons for this are still vague, but we have heard that Waka too had a thing for Spring Breakers actress Selena Gomez, whose intimacy with Wop on set had been rumored. (Complex)
