Jason Derulo's relationship has lost its sparks - Jordin Sparks that is! The 25-year-old singer confirmed he and Sparks have separated after three years together.
Reports of their separation began circulating earlier this week but Derulo confirmed the news on Thursday (25th September). Derulo was hesitant to discuss the news whilst appearing on a radio show, Minneapolis' KDWB, but finally admitted he and Sparks had gone their separate ways.
Whilst Derulo did not divulge a reason behind their split it seems it was amicable. Derulo said, as Us Weekly reports, "Everything is cool man. It's not a bad situation, it's not one of those kinds of things."
The same website also spoke to sources close to the couple who believe the split to be the result of work commitment and pressures. The source said "They are both upset. It just wasn't working. It was a lot of travel and hard to work with their schedules."
Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo have split after 3 years of marriage.
It seems the former couple, according to People, have spent the last few weeks apart. Sparks and Derulo were last spotted at the end of August when they attended the MTV Video Music Awards together. The former couple wore matching white outfits and were reportedly greatly enjoying each other's company. An eyewitness said "They [Sparks and Derulo] were loving each other's company as they sat in the front row and danced together."
The news of their split has come as something as a shock for many of their fans especially as things seemed to be heading in the way of marriage. These rumours were prompted by Derulo's song 'Marry Me' which he later admitted was written for Sparks. As E! reports, Derulo said "It is about Jordin, actually. And it's talking about how amazing it will be when I get down on one knee and it will be the greatest moment of my life."
