When we last heard from Jordin Sparks, she revealed a lot about the end of her relationship with Jason Derulo. Sparks noted Derulo told her he loved her while bidding her a safe trip as she prepared to travel for work in September 2014. Since then, the “American Idol” winner turned actress has not spoken to him. In her latest interview with our sister site Bossip, Sparks provided more details on their disturbing breakup and shared what she would say if she were to see her old flame today. Here are a few highlights:
If She Is Over Talking About Jason
“It happened and it’s a part of my history. Someone will mention it and I’ll answer. I’m pretty much an open book— I don’t shy away from things. It was just funny how the whole situation played out…everyone said it was turning dirty. But that’s not what was happening, [y’all are spinning it to be that]. I was just speaking on facts that I was given (referring to her January 2015 Power 105 Breakfast Club interview). And if they weren’t, all he had to do was call me and I would have been like ‘my bad guys!’”
If She Has Anything To Say To Jason
“If he called, I don’t know what we would have to talk about now. It’s one of those things that sometimes you don’t get closure [from]. You just move on…you just keep going. If I saw him, like at Clive [Davis’ Pre-Grammy] party the other night —it was really funny, I said ‘hello’ to his security guard but I think he (Jason) tried to avoid me. That’s okay, whatever! I’m open, I would be like ‘Hey! How ya doing? I wish you all the best’ I wish him all the best and don’t wish any ill will towards him. Some relationships work, some don’t.”
If Her Mixtape, #ByeFelicia, was about Jason
“Yes! The crazy thing is, it’s funny when you release a song that makes people [gasp] and say “Oh my gosh, I know who that’s about!” And all of a sudden it’s weird to people that someone does that. But that’s what all songs are inspired by. Whether you’re an artist or songwriter, you’re inspired by the things that happen in your life. So that’s going to happen and I want to be able to express myself in that way. It was very therapeutic for during that time period. Some days it was like “yeah girl, you rock! Girl Power!” Some days I was really sad and some days I was like, “I don’t eff with you!” It came in all different forms and that’s how it came out on the mixtape. And that’s how it will be on the record as well because I got to write a lot.”

Looks like the battle between Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks is far from finished. This week when Jordin had a sit down interview with Angela Yee and then The entire Breakfast Club, she spilled a bit more tea about her breakup with Derulo. Even explaining that when they were done with each other, he wouldn’t even come retrieve the car that he’d given her. And since he was being petty or irresponsible, she drove the car back to the dealership and left it in the lot…because, according to her, it was leased anyway.
Well, honey after his own extensive media tour, discussing the breakup, we should have known that Derulo wasn’t going to take that lying down. And since it’s Jordin’s turn now, the singer took to Instagram to “prove” that Jordin was lying about him leasing the car he gave to her.
He posted a bill of sale on his Instagram page with the following caption.
Notice how he made sure to @ mention Jordin and all the members of The Breakfast Club. Lol Petty Patty.
As some of you may know, only a title can undoubtedly prove ownership. So this may still be irrelevant. And many people flocked to his page to say so and suggest that’s what he post. They also let him know that he’s lame for trying to drag Jordin this way.
So what does Jordin think about all of this?
She’s basically unbothered. Right around the same time Jason posted this little piece of unvalidated evidence, she posted a series of crying laughing emojis and then liked The Shade Room’s repost of Derulo’s photo.
Are you surprised to see these two going at it like that, especially when Jordin tried to take the high road in the beginning?
Last night we had the chance to hear Jordin Spark’s side of the story concerning her and Jason Derulo’s break up last fall during the singer’s listening session with Power 105’s Angela Yee. At her #JordinGetsIntimate event, Jordin said she and Jason had a small argument, for which she apologized afterward and, despite the awkward vibe, he said he was okay. The next day Jordin was scheduled to fly away for work and during her Power 105 Breakfast Club interview this morning she revealed that before she departed for her flight, Jason helped her with her luggage, kissed her goodbye and told her he loved her. That was the last time Jordin heard from him. Ever. In fact, in order for Jason to get his belongings out of their house and his BMW he contacted Jordin through a third party.
When asked at her intimate gathering if she reached out to Jason, Jordin said no and at this point she’s not interested in doing so since it’s been five months since the breakup. Jordin did say, however, that the split taught her a valuable lesson.
“The infatuation stage can be so exciting. Everything goes out of your head that you say you’re going to do. And instead you kind of just dive in…which is great because when it comes to love, sometimes you have to do that; but my biggest lesson for myself is: I need to slow that process down. Let’s get to know each other first and then we’ll decide if we want to dive in to make a commitment to one another or be boyfriend and girlfriend. And I have to take my biggest lessons and apply them to the now. I plan to go slower and I’m going to have to talk myself through things like, ‘Jordin, remember what you did last time…just take it slow.’ Also, I’ve learned to really evaluate why I’m attracted to that person. Is it really because they are going to complement me, not compliment like ‘you look pretty,’ but complement in the sense that is this person going to be like ‘something came in and I think it’s a great opportunity for you’ or ‘I saw a book you would like to read’ or ‘I see you really enjoy charity work, how can I get involved too?’ To be more grounded on different things than just being cute.”
Well said and sage advice!
Are you surprised at Jason’s juvenile behavior at the end of their relationship?
While Jason Derulo was out on his infamous breakup tour, Jordin Sparks opted not to say much about what led to their very public split. This of course, is why many were shocked when the former “American Idol” contestant released a diss track about the “Marry Me” singer.
On the song, which was released last month and titled, “How About Now,” Jordin aired out her feelings about their relationship and breakup.
“Once you blew up, head got big and you started changing.
Can’t believe all the things that you started saying.
Like I’m with you for your fame and your name. What?”
During a recent chat with E! Online, the 24-year-old beauty spoke on why she released the song even though she knew it would be controversial.
“I knew it was going to get crazy,” she shared. “I was nervous to put it out there because no one had ever heard me like this before.”
“Every day was different and every day something new came out [during writing and recording sessions], and that day I was having one of those days where I was like, ‘I’m just going to do it and I want my fans to hear this side of me. They need to hear it.’…
My fans wanted to hear something but at the same time it wasn’t really planned and I just went into the studio and whatever came out, came out.”
Jordin also says that she has not heard from Jason since releasing the song. In addition to being featured on her mixtape, #ByeFelicia, the track will also appear on her new album, Right Here, Right Now.
“Once You Blew Up, Head Got Big” Jordin Sparks Goes In On Ex Jason Derulo In New Song “How Bout Now”
When news of Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo’s breakup first hit the internet. It was clear who was taking the high road and who was trying to use the ending of their relationship as a marketing tool. In case you’re not sure which was which Jason was out here doing more press than ever before talking about what led to their demise.
Jordin basically said she wasn’t going to go too deep into it. And up until the release of her mixtape, “#Bye Felicia” that was true.
But now she has a new song called “How Bout Now” and in it she says all the things she’s been keeping inside for the past couple of months.
Check out a couple of the lyrics and listen to the whole song, which sounds like it would fit perfectly on an old school Aaliyah album, in the video below.
First she explains how he showed himself to be ungrateful.
“Member I deleted all my other guys numbers on my phone for you.
Remember when you broke your neck and I had to wash your back for you.
You probably don’t remember half the shit that I did for you.”
And then the reason their love didn’t last.
Once you blew up, head got big and you started changing.
Can’t believe all the things that you started saying.
Like I’m with you for your fame and your name. What?”
Well, there you have it.
But the biggest insult in all of the lyrics? “Cuz I’m up right now and you suck right now.”
Breaking up is certainly hard to do, especially when it’s done via phone call or text. Check out 10 former celebrity couples whose relationships came to an end over the phone.
Joe Jonas and Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift never forgets a breakup and she doesn’t want you to either! Remember back when she admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that her relationship with Joe Jonas ended in a 27-second phone call? Jonas was the one who called to do the dumping. Yikes!
So many celebrity couples called it quits this year let alone within the last couple of months. We recently compiled a list of celebrities — like Ciara and Future — who called off their engagements. But since this slideshow’s publication, there have been not only more engagement call offs, but celebrity breakups and divorces. Here’s another list of celebrities who gave up on their marriages, engagements and relationships. What’s really going on, Hollywood?!
“He Lied To Me The Entire Time” Model Carmen Ortega Says Jason Derulo Was Cheating On Jordin With Her
Jason Derulo swears that he didn’t cheat on Jordin Sparks. But model, Carmen Ortega, has a different story.
Ortega told STAR Magazine that she had a one-month fling with Derulo while he was still dating Sparks.
Ortega said she met Derulo last summer through mutual friends at a recording studio. She claims shortly after meeting, the two quickly began an intimate relationship.
“We dated for a month. We went out in public with friends a few times, so I assumed he didn’t have a girlfriend.”
Ortega said that when she finally realized that Derulo, at least publicly, was still very much involved with Jordin, she called things off.
“I cut ties with him immediately. He tried telling me their relationship was strictly fueled by management teams. He lied to me the entire time.”
The story is a little different than the one she told last summer when the two were first photographed together, on two separate occasions going into IHop at 3 am in the morning.
I kept going back and forth asking him ‘Are you with Jordin or are you not with Jordin?’ One day he’s like “we’re back together” the next he’d say “we’re not together.” He acted like they were on and off. With Jason I asked him about an interview where he said he and Jordin were discussing marriage and he told me, ‘It’s not even like that, we’re not that serious. I was like ‘You’re going on interviews and saying certain things’ and he was saying, ‘It’s all fake it’s just press.’
She seems like a good person and a good girl and that’s why I want nothing to do with that situation anymore because I look at it like what a piece of isht of a guy to be doing that to her for so long. She is really in love with him – I feel bad about it.
If I was in a room with Jordin, I would tell her straight up your man is not a good man for you. You are too good for him. I just feel like she’s being played really bad. Men in Hollywood, he’s not the only one, there’s a lot of them.
For someone who claimed not to be dating him, she seemed really in her feelings about a co-worker, even back then. So it makes sense that now, the full story is coming out.
Who knows who to believe with these type of shenanigans. But Jason Derulo seems like the least trustworthy person in this story.
On the total opposite spectrum of the current Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa saga, are Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks who are no longer item. Derulo, who was recently on Power 105’s Breakfast Club and Sparks, who was recently on the Wendy Williams show, have given very light details on what led to the demise of the relationship. There were reports that Derulo said the pressure for marriage was a factor in their breakup, despite him stating on numerous occasions that Sparks was “the one” and writing a song about the “American Idol” titled “Marry You.” Some women feel as if Derulo made a mistake in making his feelings about marrying Sparks public, while others feel there must’ve been some infidelity on Derulo’s part that negatively affected the relationship. Personally, I don’t think either was the case, but I’d like to address those assessments while offering my own opinion of what happened based on the limited amount of information I’ve gotten from both during their public statements.
Derulo, at some point during the relationship, thought Jordin Sparks was the woman he was going to marry. And said so. Publicly. There are some who are of the opinion that he likely should’ve kept that tidbit of information to himself unless he was absolutely sure he was going to pop the question. During his Breakfast Club interview, Derulo explained the song, stating he felt that way about her, but wrote the song as a sign of his commitment to the relationship and his hope that his future with Sparks would lead them to that point. That’s not necessarily the wrong thing to do, though Sparks said during her Wendy Williams interview that whatever pressure he might’ve felt, was probably self-inflicted. To a degree, Sparks is probably right. Derulo did mention there was pressure from family members with regards to him marrying Sparks and while I have no way of knowing that pressure was there prior to him making the song, public proclamations to do anything aren’t a good idea unless you’re 100% sure you’re going to do it.
I’m not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, and pop-culture is number 1000 on my list of “100 things I’m good at,” but after watching Sparks’ and Derulo’s interviews, I’m not sure why this is such an issue. Sparks is 24 and Derulo is 25. They’ve been together for three years. And then they called it quits. To quote Cam’ron from the classic movie Paid In Full, “(relationships die) everyday, b.” While it seems folks are searching for any reason to drag Derulo’s name through the mud (he was the one who initiated the break-up), he seemed to be very respectable in his handling of the questions during his interview. He claimed that he still loved her, didn’t rule out the chance they’d possibly reconcile, said he still stalks her Instagram photos and said he’d be hurt if she started dating someone else. I’m assuming in 2014, online stalking qualifies as a form of romance. In any event, it seems like two young people were involved in a serious relationship and quite possibly got in over their heads with one person opting to leave instead of stay beyond the point of no return. Seems like a smart decision to me.
At the end of the day, Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo broke up and nobody knows why, but them. Yeah, it probably wasn’t the smartest idea on the planet for Jason to make public proclamations of his desire to marry Jordin but it doesn’t seem like that’s what broke the relationship up. With that said, I could definitely see how making that thought public could add an unnecessary pressure to a relationship with two people like Sparks and Derulo, who are already suffering the pressure of being celebrities in the celebrity-crazed era we live in now, especially at 24 and 25.
Jason Derulo Explains Why He Wrote “Marry Me” And Had Jordin Sparks In The Video If He Wasn’t Ready For Marriage
If you didn’t get the memo, Jason Derulo is on his 2014 breakup tour, and is speaking to whomever will interview him about why things didn’t work out with Jordin Sparks. Despite all the theories, including that he let his new much bigger dose of fame get in between his relationship because he wanted to be “outchea,” and that he led Sparks on about marriage, he says that’s not true. Derulo claims that they argued about a lot of things, including marriage. The 25-year-old and Sparks, who is 24, couldn’t see eye-to-eye on that. So the big question has been, why write a song called “Marry Me” and put Sparks in the video?
That’s what Peter Rosenberg and Laura Stylez asked him when he visited Hot 97 yesterday. This was his explanation:
“I wrote the song because of the pressure. I wanted to say that we’ve got time. You know what I’m saying? There’s NO rush. When the time is right, I will say, ‘will you marry me?’ When the time is right.”
Derulo also spoke more about why things didn’t work:
“It was a situation where there was a lot of arguing going on. Different pressures of marriage, not just from her perspective, but from the world in general.”
If he thinks they will reconcile:
“It’s not too far gone, I wouldn’t say that.”
And whether or not he thinks she hates his guts right now:
“I don’t know, I haven’t talked to her in a little minute. Like two weeks. The last conversation was dinner. We was sitting in Katana. We had a argument about a specific something that I don’t want to mention. That argument just kind of did it for me. After that point, I didn’t really want to talk to her at all. After that specific argument–it wasn’t like it was all because of that, but it was the last straw. Something can get so unhealthy that at some point you have to walk away. If you’re arguing all the time and it’s more bad than good, you just gotta make that decision. ‘What are we doing here?’
He also addressed whether or not he was talking so much about their split for attention knowing that he and Jordin will probably get back together sooner than later. Here’s what he had to say.
“I wish that was what it really was. I don’t need that kind of stuff. I always keep it about the music and the music has always done its thing. I’ve never been that kind of person to just muster up something so that people could buy my music.”
As for Sparks, she spoke to Wendy Williams this morning about the split. Well, kind of. When asked how she is doing, she said she’s doing great. And she looked great by the way:
“I’m good. Really, I’m good. I know you don’t think I’m good, but I’m good.”
After Wendy told her that she’s way too young for marriage anyway, she was asked if she and the public put pressure on Jordin about marriage after the “Marry Me” video:
“We set ourselves up for that.”
And she was asked whether or not infidelity played a part in the end of their relationship. She didn’t say yes, but Sparks didn’t say no either…
“I actually don’t want to comment on that.”
I would like to see these two work things out because they were adorable together, but all this talking? It’s probably not going to make coming back together very easy…
