Chelsea Handler‘s late night E! talk show Chelsea Lately may have come to an end back on August 26, 2015, but that doesn’t mean the comedian has forgotten her many celebrity interviews during her stint as talk-show host. One, however, stands out a bit more than the others—and not in a good way.

While talking to Variety at Sundance on Saturday (January 23), Handler, 40, was quick to reveal that the worst guest she ever interviewed on the show was none other than Canadian pop star Justin Bieber.

The Chelsea Does star shared that due to Bieber’s flirting “schtick,” she felt like a “child molester” during their numerous interviews, especially when Bieber jokingly asked her out on a date.

“He was trying flirt with me and it was so uncomfortable,” she revealed. “Like, that’s his schtick. He would come on and flirt with you and you just felt like a child molester right away. And I didn’t want to feel that way.”

The interviewer then went on to ask Handler if she though his flirting with her was really a universal gimmick, to which she replied, “I think he does that to, like, you know—I think he probably does that with everybody. You think he really loves me?”

When asked if Bieber asked her for her phone number, she responded (obviously), “No, he did not… I was not sexually attracted to a child. Thank you for clearing that up on camera.”
