Gotye Dumped By Girlfriend For Constantly Humming “Somebody That I Used To Know“
SYDNEY (TGE) – Australian music star Gotye, 31, lost his long-time girlfriend after she dumped him some time this morning. In her own words, she couldn’t stand “listening to him repeatedly sing and murmur the words to his greatest hit ‘Somebody That I Used To Know'”, world news agencies report.
“I really don’t understand why she left me, especially because she recently said she felt so happy she could die,” Goyte told reporters later in the afternoon. “I told myself that she was right for me, but I guess I was mistaken. It’s not my fault you can get addicted to a certain kind of song, like this one,” he added.
“But she really didn’t have to cut me off because of all this. Because of this stupid little thing, she treats me like a stranger now and it feels so rough. It seems that now, for her, I’m just somebody that she used to know,” Gotye claims.
Our reporters tried to get a statement from Gotye’s now former girlfriend, but apparently she was under so much stress from hearing the song over and over again that she was unavailable for comment. A source close to her said that “now and then she thinks of all the times he screwed her over by singing that annoying song, it’s a miracle she didn’t leave him earlier.” She also confided that “part of her was believing that it will pass. He said that he could let it go, but no, he just kept humming and quietly whistling the tune since January, it was really unbearable. She told him they could still be friends, but she also admitted she was glad it was over,” added the friend of the singer’s ex-partner.
Gotye also complained to reporters that his former partner already changed her number and sent some friends over to collect her records from his apartment.
