Jason Derulo Blames Marriage Pressures For Jordin Sparks Split, Says Relationship Became An ‘Obligation’
Although he previously stated that he did not intend to speak on the details regarding his split from Jordin Sparks, Jason Derulo must have experienced a change of heart. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, the “Wiggle” singer credited marriage pressures for the breaking down of their relationship.
“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 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.”
And then, he went in for the kill.
“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,” he explained.
Many expected Jason to propose to Jordin after he expressed a desire to do so, released a song titled, “Marry Me,” and featured Jordin in the song’s music video.
During his chat with Ryan, Jason also expressed that he and Jordin aren’t exactly on good terms right now.
“I wouldn’t say good terms,” he said. “”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?'”
“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.”
Jordin also recently spoke out about the split and while she’s not blabbing like her ex-boyfriend, she did have this to say:
“I’m good, actually,” Jordin said during an appearance on “Today.” “The funny is that I read this book the other day. Actually, it was yesterday. It said when something unexpected happens in your life or you think something bad is happening, just say ‘plot twist’ and move on.”
