Jason Derulo and Daphne Joy have apparently split up. The R&B star and the model had been together for months; both had history of high-profile relationships and seemed to be doing fine but things are reportedly over after less than a year.
TMZ reports that it was Joy who decided it was time to part ways.
Derulo and 50 Cent’s ex started dating last year and “went public” at the People’s Choice Awards this past January. In March, Derulo talked about their relationship and gushed about how the two of them enjoyed simple pleasures.
“I love the simple things,” the 26-year old told People.com “I like just kicking back and getting that one-on-one time, watching a movie at the house, or she (Daphne) cooks dinner. She’s an unbelievable cook!”
Derulo and Joy began dating a little over a year after he split with fellow R&B star Jordin Sparks. That was a high-profile relationship that had lasted three years, and the breakup was highly scrutinized at the time. Derulo admitted in 2015 that he was frustrated with constantly being asked about what happened between the former couple.
“I understand why people ask but it’s a bit weird,” he said. “The strange part is it’s like a prolonged break-up. Instead of it being over and moving on, it keeps on going and going. That’s the strange part.”
Joy is the mother of Fiddy’s 3-year-old son, Sire Jackson.
