In case you missed it, Greyson recently did an interview with Rolling Stone where he says he has “never met someone more manipulative, more self-righteous, and more blatantly opportunistic than her.” Ellen signed a singer for her label eleven in 2010 after a video of him performing Lady Gaga‘S Paparazzi went viral online.

But rather than being a dream come true for Greyson, the experience is actually a nightmare. He claims the 64-year-old “became overly authoritarian and controlling” with every aspect of his career before “completely” giving up on him when his music was on display:
“I cannot know her. Can’t talk to her. Whenever I come in on the show, it’s a fake smile. She won’t even ask, ‘How are you? How are you? ‘ It was like, ‘This is what we’re going to talk about. We will meet you there. ‘”
Now, Charlie has addressed those allegations. As you may recall, the 30-year-old singer first became famous after YouTube video of him singing Someone like you via Adele with Emily Luther went viral in 2011. The two ended up singing the above song The Ellen DeGeneres . Show and was signed to her record label. However, a year later, Charlie left at the age of eleven. Why so? Well, it looks like he’s also been spooked by Ellen and her label like Greyson!
In a new interview with Rolling Stone published on Saturday, he shared that he often feels abandoned by Ellen’s agency shortly after signing with them. And although Charlie has no problem with Looking for Nemo Well, he’s had a problem with the team that’s been running for 11 months. Charlie explains:
“We both have different experiences, me versus Greyson. But I agree with him that certainly no one was present after creating my first demo EP. Not blaming one person, but forming a group… All the people present in that room, they disappeared. I didn’t hear from anyone. “
While Ellen did not respond to the statements, a source close to her team said Rolling Stone that they don’t remember this happened. Charlie also mentions to the magazine that he has never told these issues to Ellen and never dealt with any toxicity from her:
“People describe Ellen as rude. I’ve never been through that. Maybe she likes me.”
