Charlie Puth Says He Was Abandoned By Ellen Degeneres’ Record Label: “They Just Disappeared”

Charlie Puth has spoken out about his time signed to Ellen DeGeneres’ record label.

The singer  recently appeared on the Rolling Stone Music Now podcast where he  responded to a former teen pop star Greyson Chance’s claims that he was “controlled” then “completely abandoned” by Ellen DeGeneres after she made him a star.

Puth told Rolling Stone Music Now, “We both have different experiences, me versus Greyson. But I do agree with him that no one was present, certainly, after the creation of my first demo EP. Not putting any blame on one person, but from a collective … all the people that were in that room, they just disappeared. I didn’t hear from anybody.”

He shared that he felt “fortunate” enough to be able to return to school, saying: “It was a real blunder that it didn’t work out… I never heard those songs again, but I don’t know how good they are… I was a YouTube artist, I don’t think I was a very good singer.

“So I was happy to not hear those songs anymore, but I do agree, I didn’t really hear from anybody after I put those songs out. But it was a different situation for me, because I was glad I didn’t hear those songs.”

The “Light Switch” winger was signed with eleveneleven in 2011 after DeGeneres saw a viral clip of him singing Adele’s “Someone Like You.”  He told the outlet he never spoke with DeGeneres about his time on the label.
