The google translate split "付き合ってられん" to words as "付き合って られん" but it seem is not a regular word I can't understand what do "られん" meaning or find out explain in dictionaries(jisho.org and tangorin.com)

付き合ってられん is colloquial and blunt variation of 付き合っていられない. You cannot find られん alone in dictionaries because it's part of a conjugation.

  • 付き合う: "to deal with it", "to keep talking with you" in this context
  • 付き合っている: to keep talking with you (progressive)
  • 付き合っていられる: to be able to keep talking with you (potential-progressive)
  • 付き合っていられない: not to be able to keep talking with you (negative-potential-progressive)
  • 付き合ってられない: not to be able to keep talking with you (see this)
  • 付き合ってられん: not to be able to keep talking with you (see this)

So 付き合ってられん in this context means "I can't deal with this any more", "I've had enough", "I'm outta here", etc. (付き合う has other meanings, so the context is important.)
