Is Demi Lovato to be blamed for Nick Jonas’ breakup from Olivia Culpo?
In a new interview with Billboard, the “Stone Cold” singer admits that she wasn’t a fan of Jonas’ former flame and urged him to dump her. The “Jealous” crooner dated the beauty queen for almost 2 years before calling it off in August 2015. Lovato however, felt that he was better off single.
The reason being?
“He’s a guy in his 20s and he’s famous and he likes to have a lot of fun. Listen, even when he was in a relationship, I was like, Get out of that. You could f**k anybody that you want right now, so have fun and do that,” said Lovato. After his split from the former Miss Universe, Jonas confided in his father and brother Joe, before calling Lovato.
He explained, saying, “I internalise things, so we have this rule that we never want to hear about it in a tweet or something. She’d read me the riot act, so she’s the 3rd person I call — my dad, Joe, then Demi. She was like, ‘Just go, create, and be free.’ She also said some other things…”
The 23-year-old songstress wasn’t shy in making her feelings known about Culpo. “Honestly, I didn’t like her anyway. It’s not because she’s mean or anything, but he has such a great sense of humour and I want him to be with someone that makes him laugh. I can tell if something’s up because he’ll close off,” she told the publication.
Jonas also shared that he finds his current single status rather weird, explaining, “I’m in a bizarre time in my life where I’m single, but that has been tricky. And she likes drama, so I’m able to talk about my dating shit without feeling bad.” Lovato added: “I’m like, Soooo, what’s the gossip? Who is it? Tell me everything!… I give him a lot of advice. He doesn’t always take it.”
Perhaps that’s why American hunk wasn’t shy in revealing his sexual fetishes during a recent interview last month.
As for Lovato, who called it quits with boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama after 6 years of dating, says she’s not quite ready for anything serious just yet. “It’s not on my mind, but I welcome anything. I’ll have fun. But a relationship … I won’t want that for a long time,” said the pop diva.
Despite their close bond, Lovato and Jonas, who have teamed up together for their “Future Now” tour (and recently paid a touching tribute to the Orlando shooting victims and Christina Grimmie), insist there’s never been anything romantic between the pair.
