Nick Jonas Breaks His Silence on Split from Olivia Culpo: ‘It’s Very Tough’
Nick Jonas is finally opening up about his breakup.
I’m doing OK. It’s very tough and we had a beautiful two years together and [I have] nothing but love and respect for her. But it’s always hard and my thing now is focusing on my work and staying as busy as I can, as creative as I can be. These are the times you’ve just got to dive in and get lost in your work and that’s what I’m trying to do.
While he did not seem to hold any particular grudge against the former Miss USA, the 22-year-old did not elaborate on what happened between them. He did admit that dealing with a public breakup is difficult.
I have regrets about not being open with relationships in the past. That’s the thing that makes it actually more challenging. On many levels you try to hide the relationship or do things to make it more private but that just adds more stress on the relationship. Whereas this relationship I was in was open and public and there’s a lot of comfort in that and support. So yeah, I think it’s the opposite actually. But it’s this part of it that makes it all harder afterwards.
Culpo confirmed the breakup last week, writing on Instagram: “Your heart just breaks, that’s all. […] Yes I’m going to be okay.”
Jonas’s busy schedule may also have something to do with the couple’s decision to part ways. He has entered into a busy part of his life, adding acting to his ongoing music career. In the fall, he will play a leading role in the horror TV series, Scream Queens and his other series Kingdom has been picked up for another two seasons.
