Didn’t they almost have it all?
In news that will send Tweeners Tweeting in sorrow, the Celebrity Hotwire is ablaze with reports that Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato have called time on their virginal love affair less than six months after going public with the romance.
On Monday, Hollywood tattles dished the dirt to ZackTaylor.ca that Joe dumped Demi in a tearful conversation last week — after being pushed to the brink by the 17-year-old’s excessive blabbing to the press about their relationship.
“He doesn’t like everyone knowing everything, and that’s what ultimately pushed him over the top. They both care for each other a lot, just need a little ‘time-out’…” says an insider. “Joe and her had a conversation the other night about how quickly the seriousness of the relationship was getting, and wanted to slow things down a bit. Obviously Demi didn’t like what he had to say, but she respects him, and the two are calming things down…..”
The Jonas Brothers star — who famously dumped Taylor Swift by phone in 2007 — and Lovato made their relationship official in March, with Joe telling Idol Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show: “We’ve been best friends for the longest time and now we’re just kind of taking the next step and it’s been really fun. We’re having a great time. …. I guess we kind of figured that one day it would happen but we didn’t feel like it was the right time.”
Demi — Joe’s Camp Rock co-star — added: “Being best friends for a while, over time feelings grow, and for me, as much as I wanted to deny it, the feelings were always there.”
This new arrangement could prove a bit wonky for the former lovers. In July, The JoBros will be embarking on a three continent world tour with Lovato as their special guest.
