Who is Delta Goodrem, Nick Jonas’ (Rumored) New Girlfriend?
First things first: where did Delta come from?
Born in Sydney, Delta rose to fame in her native Australia by starring in the soap opera Neighbours (aka, the show where pop goddess Kylie Minouge got her start) as Nina Tucker. Delta released her first album, Innocent Eyes in 2003 at the tender age of 18.
So, is Delta as big of a star as Nick Jonas?
Well, some would argue that she is an even bigger star than Nick Jonas in her native Australia! Delta is one of Australia’s highest-selling female recording artists and she has eight No. 1 singles under her belt. Her debut album also spent 29 weeks at No. 1 on the Australian charts. While Nick and the Jonas Brothers have enjoyed considerable success, they have yet to have a No. 1 single on the US charts.
Hm ok, but has Delta ever dated a celeb as big as Nick?
Well, not in the States at least. Delta was famously engaged to Westlife singer Brian McFadden but the two called it off earlier this year after Brian was accused of being drunk on an airplane. (Delta is very outspoken about her “clean” lifestyle.) After dating a member of a boy band, Delta knows how to handle the girls fans who may be jealous of her relationship!

Uh oh, does this mean that Nick might be her rebound man?
Maybe! Or maybe they are just friends, who knows! Nick was previously thought to be dating British actress Samantha Barks whom he met while performing Les Miserables in London last year. Delta and Nick crossed paths in March when Delta employed the JoBro to write a song her her new album, which she is currently recording in Los Angeles.
So if she is dating Nick, are they a good fit? The age difference seems a little troubling.
Don’t worry JoBro fans, Delta is as squeaky clean as her rumored new beau. After surviving a battle with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2003, Delta has committed herself to living a sober and clean lifestyle. Delta is also very involved in charity work, particularly causes that help children suffering from leukemia.
Is Delta ready to take over the US?
Yes! The fact that Delta has relocated to Los Angeles to work on her upcoming album hints that she may be looking to achieve the same level of success in the States that she has enjoyed in Australia. Maybe Nick will help convince Delta to permanently stay in the States…
Fans may also remember Delta from when she performed “Natural Woman” on Dancing with the Stars last week. Watch the performance below.
