“You’ll only know 1 side of the story RE Teen choice awards because I choose not to talk to the papers about every aspect of my personal life,” Calvin tweeted to his approximately 4.6 million followers. “But just know I had a damn good reason”. He then used the “bye” emoji. Cold. To be honest, the Scot’s response doesn’t make him look any better. Unless Rita emptied his bank account or killed his cat, this still feels mean-spirited.
