Joe Jonas may have earned a bit of a reputation for being a heartbreaker, but the handsome teen idol insists that he isn’t the one doing the heartbreaking.
The 20-year-old Disney star has had relationships with a string of famous ladies including Camilla Belle, Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift, the latter of which announced to the world on Ellen that Joe had dumped her with a 27-second phone call. However, Joe insists that he isn’t the love-crushing playboy type in an interview with The Toronto Star:
I know there’s people out there who say I’ve been breaking hearts, but listen to our songs. They speak the truth. If hearts have been broken, they’re usually ours. What happens in our relationships winds up in our songs and haters will be haters.
This isn’t the first time that Joe has defended himself against claims by ex-girlfriends: Following his split from Taylor in 2008, the singer insisted that he wasn’t a cheater and that the relationship had issues:
I never cheated on a girlfriend. It might make someone feel better to assume or imply I have been unfaithful but it is simply not true. Maybe there were reasons for a breakup. Maybe the heart moved on. Perhaps feelings changed. I am truly saddened that anything would potentially cause [my fans] to think less of me.
Joe’s most recent relationship with former BFF Demi ended abruptly earlier this year. Following the split, Demi allegedly made a dig at Joe during a concert in South America, telling him to “go back to playing tambourine.” The two are planning on touring together for the Jonas Brothers and Camp Rock 2 summer tour in August.
