Ellen DeGeneres has been accused of abandoning Greyson Chance after taking him under her wing in 2010.
Shortly after the appearance, DeGeneres set Chance up with agents and a label, according to the musician.
However, Chance alleged that he was "completely abandoned" by the talk show host after his career failed to take off.
The "Ellen" team had a different experience, Fox News Digital has learned.
Chance also accused DeGeneres of being "controlling," which was corroborated by his mother in the interview.
Couldn’t talk to her," Chance told the outlet.
Despite being dropped by Interscope shortly after the failed project, Chance continued to appear on "The Ellen Show" until 2019.
"I've never met someone more manipulative, more self-centered and more blatantly opportunistic than her," Chance added in the interview.
According to a source close to DeGeneres' team, Chance didn't complain about his relationship with the talk show host during the years they worked together.
Chance added that "what happened to [him] as a kid was not cool" and claimed he has "PTSD" and "trauma."
