In an interview with ABC’s Nightline news , singer Demi Lovato recalls her largely reported 2010 romance with Joe Jonas that ended much to Lovato’s surprise only a few months later.
“We were in a relationship and we broke up, and at one point, I was really mad at him,” Lovato said.
Indeed, not too long after their May 2010 breakup (which happened directly before the two former Disney stars were about to hit the road on their Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam tour), Jonas, 23, was seen getting close to Twilight actress Ashley Greene, whom he dated until March 2011. Now, three years later, the X Factor judge, 20, says she and Jonas have been able to get past their failed romance and maintain a friendship, although it can be difficult at times. “When you go through heartbreaks and things like that, you always have in mind somebody,” she said. “It’s like when you hear a song on the radio that reminds you of somebody, you’re going to be reminded. But keeping that in mind…it’s a delicate balance.” She continued, “Now, I can, fortunately, say, that him and his brother Nick, have always been there for me, and are literally family, and like brothers. We have a great friendship. And we may not be as close as we used to be, but that’s OK.”
