Jason Derulo Reveals Real Reason On Jordin Sparks Split: ‘There Was A Lot of Pressure Of Marriage’


Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks shocked just about everyone when the two announced their split last Thursday after three years together. 

But although we’re certainly sad to see the musical duo no longer together, the “Wiggle” singer revealed during an interview with On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Monday morning to set the record straight. 

“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 new found success. 

So I thought it was important for me to call in and clear the air. 

“What happened … in a nutshell, there was a lot of tension in the relationship for a lot of different reasons,” Jason continues. 

“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.” 

Although the split was acrimonious, he and Jordin are not in a good place just yet.

 “I wouldn’t say good terms,” Jason admits. “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?'” 

Jason also opened up about what caused the two to break up. Although he did write a song called “Marry Me” and Jordin even starred in its music video, becoming husband and wife wasn’t something he was 100 percent about at this point … yet Jordin has been for some time. 

“Yeah, and to be fair, it was not just from her either,” he clarifies. 

“It was kind of from everybody. That’s not the sole reason, but it definitely played a part.” 

But don’t expect Jason, who performed during the halftime show at the University of Southern California’s football game this past Saturday, to cut songs like “Marry Me” out of his set lists any time soon. 

“I think it will be tough to perform a lot of different songs, but maybe it will be special in a different way,” he explains. 

“That was a huge time in my life. It doesn’t go away. Those times in my life when I felt like that, I really did feel like that. A song like ‘Vertigo,’ that was a duet, I think it’s important for me to address the situation. I’m not going to not perform the song.” 

Jason also says that their busy schedules kept them apart so much, and it was especially tough on Jordin. 

“It weighed on the both of us. We think it may have weighed on her more than it weighed on me. Yeah, she got frustrated a lot. She was in that frustrated space a lot and I think part of that was part of my problem. There’s different stories, like me just having too much going on right now, but it’s a combination of a lot of things. No, there was no infidelity.” 

“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.” 

For now, Jason is trying to focus on his work, namely his next single, “Trumpets,” and his Talk Dirty Tour, which is about to kick off this week. 

“I’m literally having rehearsals every single day,” he says. “My mind is occupied on that, so it’s always good.” -
