Earlier this week, we reported that Bella Thorne was dating Charlie Puth.
Yesterday, Puth broke things off with Bella in very public fashion via his Twitter page.
So how did things implode so quickly?
Well, it had more than a little to do with the fact that Bella was allegedly still dating Tyler Posey when she started hooking up with Charlie.
To hear Puth tell it, the actress attempted to juggle both relationships for a time, but the situation blew up in her face when Charlie found she had never broken up with Tyler.
"No one should have their heart messed with like this, and I'm not going to be in the middle of it," Puth tweeted on Thursday.
"I don't know Tyler personally, but I know he shouldn't be treated this way."
In case anyone remained under the delusion that he and Bella might still have a future together, Puth spelled out his decision in his final tweet on the matter:
"She told me she was not with him anymore. This is all news to me ... I want nothing but peace for all, I'm just removing myself from this."
Puth apparently based his based his accusations on a Paper magazine interview in which Bella spoke about Tyler in glowing terms.
Bella defended herself, tweeting that while it was just published this week, the interview took place before she met Charlie:
"That article was written forever ago," Bella tweeted.
"Ty and I have been broken up for like over two weeks."
Even if she speaks the truth, Charlie probably would have preferred to hold off on going public with Bella if he had been aware that she was just in a relationship "like over two weeks" ago.
Anyway, Tyler and Charlie both have pretty loyal online followings, so not surprisingly, social media quickly turned against Bella, with Twitter stans roasting her in one of their customary "over" parties.
However, it looks as though Bella has a loyal supporter in actress Keke Palmer, who came to her fellow Nickelodeon alums defense with the a tweet reading:
"Why couldn't you have just texted @bellathorne in private if you were confused? The interview is dated. So sorry Bella, ignore."
Thorne retweeted the sentiment and added a comment of her own:
"Charlie and I were hanging out..he saw an old interview and got butthurt but instead of texting me and asking about it he put it on Twitter."
When a fan tweeted that she thought Bella and Tyler were broken up, Bella commented:
"Thank youuuu finally someone's paying attention."
Not surprisingly, the tweet hasn't earned her much sympathy, especially since she went from claiming that she and Charlie were platonic pals to suggesting that they were "hanging out" in a romantic sense.
Something tells us her story might change a few more times before this is all sorted out.
