Nathan Sykes from The Wanted has confirmed he’s happy in a relationship with Yours Truly singer Ariana Grande, but he is now admitting he had a big crush on Selena Gomez at one point.
Sykes said he couldn’t pursue his crush because of her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, whom Sykes’ band shares a mutual manager with.
"[Max George] follows someone on Twitter, then he is in the tabloids saying he is in a relationship. I started following the Selena Gomez and nothing. Where is my relationship?!” he joked of his bandmate’s game.
“To be honest, I always liked Selena, but I really did not want to go that side because Justin would kill me! I would probably receive a call from [mutual manager Scooter Braun] telling me to stay away!" he said, Perez Hilton reports.
Sykes continued that when he saw Gomez out, he froze and couldn’t say anything.
“I must have looked like a complete idiot [when I saw her out and about]. My friends were like, 'Just say hi,' but I could not even talk to her! But that's how I am. I'm very, very nervous around girls that I really like. I need to improve my game,” he said.
Last month, however, Sykes tweeted about his relationship with Grande, saying “So, I guess it’s obvious now … thanks to everyone who is being so lovely. I’m so happy #butweareterrified #pleasedontkillme #orariana.”
Grande added, “We hesitated saying anything as people can be a bit insensitive but thank u we value all of your happiness, thank you for valuing ours :)”
