Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas Aren’t Friends Anymore, But She’s Staying Quiet About Why They No Longer Speak
Remember the good ‘ole days when Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas were the definition of #friendshipgoals? Well, it appears that those days are long gone because the two sadly aren’t BFFs anymore.
During a recent interview, Lovato revealed that she and all three of the Jonas Brothers are no longer in touch.
While its clear the pop star is forging ahead in her new life path, we can’t help but wonder, why did she stop being friends with the “Chains” singer in the first place?
Lovato and Jonas were once inseparable
In the early years of Lovato and Jonas’ friendship, it was apparent that these two had a bond like no other.
Though she had an on-and-off-again relationship with Joe Jonas from 2008-2010 (pre- and during- Camp Rock), the Sonny With A Chance star grew exceptionally close to the youngest JoBro during their Disney Channel days and the two remained friends long after the couple’s break up.
Since there was no attraction between them, Lovato and Jonas became friends naturally and maintained their close bond over the next six years.
“[Demi and I] became even closer because it was never going to be romantic,” Jonas told Billboard in a joint interview with Lovato in July 2016. “[We] were productive — we’d write songs about [their relationship].”
Throughout their friendship, the pair proved time and time again that their relationship was unbreakable. In addition to being spotted often together, the singers would also speak highly of — and roast — each other while in the public eye.
The pop duo even embarked on a joint tour, the Future Now Tour, and harmonized like absolute ANGELS on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden, all in 2016.
Though we were all convinced that these two were going to be friends for many years to come, that turned out not to be the case once 2017 rolled around.
Fans started to see a shift in their friendship in 2017
Even though she considered Jonas more like a brother than a friend, fans began to believe that the singers weren’t as close as they once were following the release of Lovato’s 2017 album, Tell Me You Love Me.
The record featured a song called “Ruin The Friendship,” in which the pop star talks about a friendship she’d like to “ruin” by becoming more than friends.
Though many thought that Jonas inspired the song, Lovato didn’t confirm or deny this theory when asked about it on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2017.
“You know, something that I will always keep to myself is? Who I write my songs about,” she said.
After that, it appeared to fans that Lovato and Jonas’ friendship had shifted drastically, especially since they were no longer showcasing their relationship in the public eye.
However, there appeared to be a light at the end of the tunnel when Jonas urged fans to keep Lovato in their thoughts and prayers following her apparent drug overdose in July 2018.
“Like all of you I am reeling at the news about Demi. All of us love her and need to pray for her to get well. She is a fighter,” the “Jealous” crooner tweeted.
Unfortunately, that didn’t mend their friendship because four months later, Lovato surprisingly unfollowed Jonas (among other former A-list besties) on Instagram.
But it wasn’t until Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s lavish wedding in December 2018 that we could tell his friendship with Lovato (who wasn’t invited to the event) was officially over.
Why did they stop being friends?
Since Jonas’ wedding, many have wondered what exactly caused the demise of his and Lovato’s friendship?
While some believed that Chopra’s budding romance with Jonas was what led his friendship with Lovato down the drain, it doesn’t seem like the actress had anything to do with this once solid bond crumbling.
Instead, it appears that Lovato and Jonas just grew apart.
Though she didn’t open up about why she stopped being friends with Jonas and his famous brothers while recently sitting down with Harper’s Bazaar, it seems like Lovato’s just moving on with life and wants to build new relationships rather than hold onto old ones.
While we hoped Jonas and Lovato would have eventually mended their friendship, it no longer seems like that’ll happen.
But despite not being friends anymore, at least we got to experience the singers’ adorable friendship for the time we did!
