Jason Derulo is setting the record straight regarding he and Jordin Sparks’ split.
Last week, it was confirmed that he and the singer ended their three year relationship. But since the news, there have been a slew of reports speculating the cause of the breakup. So on Monday, Derulo called into On Air With Ryan Seacrest and revealed the real reason behind the big split.
“I’m not one to throw my business out on the street, but I thought it was important because things are getting a little out of hand,” he told said. “I’m seeing all kind of stories about somebody getting pregnant, infidelity, things like me calling it off because of me being too busy and because of my newfound success.”
He continued, “What happened … in a nutshell, there was a lot of tension in the relationship for a lot of different reasons. Every relationship has ups and downs. There was a lot of pressures of marriage. There was a lot of arguing and stuff like that that just weighed on our relationship over time. When you stop having more good times than bad bad times, it’s time to call it quits. It becomes something that is unhealthy.”
Jason also opened up about where their relationship stands now. “I wouldn’t say good terms. I’ll be lying if I said that, but it’s not a bad situation. There’s no bad blood. We didn’t end off on a weird way or a negative way. It’s not like we’re hitting each other up, like, ‘Hey, what are you doing today?'”
He added, “Three years … very long time. I think sometimes you can be in a relationship so long, it becomes a part of your life and you feel like you’re obligated. And when you start feeling obligated and you start feeling like it’s something you have to do because it’s necessary, like breathing, that’s not a good situation either. It should be something different/”
Last year, Deulo released a track called “Marry Me” which is about getting ready to marry the one he loves. The video for the track features Sparks, so naturally, we all assumed that was the next step. “When the time is right, absolutely. It’s all about timing, and the right time,” Jason told us last year.
