Tyler The Creator apologises to Selena Gomez for past tweets: “Didn’t wanna offend her”

He's addressed the past controversy on new track 'Manifesto'

Tyler, the Creator has apologised to Selena Gomez for a series of controversial tweets he made about the singer 10 years ago.

On ‘Manifesto’, taken from Tyler’s new album ‘Call Me If You Get Lost’, he raps: “I was a teener, tweetin’ Selena crazy shit. Didn’t wanna offend her, apologise when I seen her. Back when I was tryna fuck Bieber, Just-in.”

Tyler, who is close friends with Bieber, also previously admitted that he wasn’t a fan of Gomez – who memorably dated the singer until 2018.

“No, we don’t like each other,” Tyler admitted. “‘Cause, you know like kicking it with Justin, that’s my homeboy – she always be mean mugging me. Like why are you hating on me?”

Gomez is yet to respond to the track.
