Diplo does not know anything about Selena Gomez's love life.  

Gomez appeared on New Zealand's "The Edge Afternoons" radio show Tuesday and talked about her relationship with Zedd, who she dated earlier this year, and responded claims by Diplo that their romance was phony. Dilpo went on Radio.com in early June and said they were faking it.

"I’m actually not enemies with Zedd by any means," he said, after criticizing the 22-year-old's latest album. "I just think that he came from such a cool place, and now he’s been pegged as a money-maker for a major label to do EDM, which to me isn’t even a genre. But they’ve pegged him for that, they’ve marketed him, even the fake relationship with Selena Gomez, all the things to sell records took away from the music." 

The "Good for You" singer brushed it off as a joke, but questioned why Diplo would have any input on -- or knowledge about -- her personal life. 

"He said that was a joke!" Gomez said. "He said that was a joke cause I talked to him. 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." 

The 22-year-old sparked more dating rumors Monday when she stepped out for ice cream with Gigi Hadid's ex, Cody Simpson. 

Oh, to be young, famous and single.
