The problem when you have a highly publicized fake relationship is a party in the relationship who wants a hookup. The former A+ list tweener turned silent adult singer had to go into hiding to make that happen which then led everyone to believe she had split with her fake boyfriend.
It's nice that in every interviews about their "relationship," both the foreign born hasn't been heard from in a decade singer and his A- list singer "girlfriend," always manage to work in a plug for both of their music. Every single time. But yeah, it's love.
It is the PR people of the former A+ list tweener actress turned A-/B+ list adult singer who are leaking what a song is supposedly about, to fit the current narrative. The reality is it was finished months ago and long before a split. Plus, her contributions to it writing wise were minimal despite what any credits might say.
Umm, you would think after all these years that this former A+ list tweener actress turned A-/B+ list adult singer would know the rules. You sign the dotted line and agree to perform on the award show and you get nominated. If your team is good enough you make sure it is a win rather than just a nomination. That is how it has gone for the entire existence of the cable award show.
