A lot of fans have shipped Selena Gomez and Zedd since the pair's alleged romance bloomed on the Internet. However, someone is not convinced about the musical artists' past relationship and claims that it's all just a ploy.

In a recent interview with Radio.com, DJ and producer Diplo dissed Zedd's new album and insisted that the much-publicized romance with Gomez was just for show.

"I'm actually not enemies with Zedd by any means. 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," Diplo told Radio.com.

He continued, "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."

According to E! News, several sources have confirmed that Gomez, 22, and Zedd, 25, are only good friends making music together. But flirty photos on each of their respective Instagram accounts have fueled rumors claiming that they are dating.

Diplo have called Zedd "an amazing producer and good songwriter" in his interview with Radio.com, adding that the Russian-German musician has learned to make great songs through working in the pop genre. However, Diplo slammed Zedd's latest album "True Colors" by calling it "flat," "expected," "easy for people," and a "stereotype."

On May 22, Diplo also dissed Zedd's "True Colors" on a tweet that was now deleted. According to Hollywood Life, Diplo wrote: "'True Colors' is such a pile of [crap]."

Gomez and Zedd, whose real name is Anton Zaslavski, were first spotted hanging out together in January at the Golden Globes, Hollywood Life reported. The duo was often doing studio sessions together for "I Want You to Know," a track from "True Colors" that they collaborated on. They were also featured on the song's music video.

The couple's rumored romance eventually died out in April, a separate report from the news outlet wrote. However, the former Disney star still showed her support for Zedd in a tweet posted on May 21, days after "True Colors" was released.

Fans who loved "I Want You to Know" shouldn't fret. In an interview with Billboard, Zedd revealed that he and Gomez collaborated on more songs together.

"'I Want You To Know' was the first one - we recorded a couple more songs that we haven't finished yet," the DJ said, as quoted by Hollywood Life. "And I loved the voice. I thought it had a really great energy, so I told Ryan Tedder, who I wrote the song with. He loved the voice, so to me, I didn't want to hear anything else on it, so I decided that this should be my first single."
