Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato Lied About Being Trapped in an Elevator: ‘It Was a Total Prank’

Joe Jonas came clean and revealed he and Demi Lovato didn’t actually get stuck in an elevator last week after all.

Jonas admitted to People that his distressed elevator snaps with Lovato and his band were nothing more than a prank. “It was a lot less dramatic. It was a total prank and we fooled everyone,” said the singer. “I made the video saying we got stuck in the elevator, but we really weren’t.”

Now, Jonas hopes his prank doesn’t come back to haunt him, “But I guess it’s bad karma to say that because I don’t want to get stuck in the elevator anytime soon.”

Jonas and Lovato’s prank came just a few days after Kendall and Kylie Jenner were stuck in an elevator for over an hour and had to wait for the New York Fire Department to come and rescue them. While Jonas didn’t suffer the same fate as the Jenner’s he can still completely relate, as he confessed, “I have been stuck in an elevator before and it was terrifying,”
