Jason Derulo is a far cry from the happy man he was one year ago when he recorded the romantic ballad “Marry Me” for his then girlfriend Jordin Sparks. The couple split last month after three years together, and while they insist there is no bad blood, Star can reveal the real reason behind their breakup: Jason’s chronic cheating!
The “Talk Dirty” singer, who gushed about Jordin as recently as early September, first cheated on her last summer with model Carmen Ortega, who claims in an exclusive Star interview that they met through mutual friends at an L.A. recording studio and quickly began an intimate relationship.
“We dated for a month,” the brunette beauty reveals. “We went out in public with friends a few times, so I assumed he didn’t have a girlfriend.”
When Carmen realized that Jason was publicly dating the American Idol winner, she called things off. “I cut ties with him immediately,” she says. “He tried telling me their relationship was strictly fueled by management teams. He lied to me the entire time.”
Jason has denied all rumors of a wandering eye, calling the claims “lies,” but insiders say he’s already let it slip that something is amiss. “I wouldn’t say good terms,” he recently admitted when asked how things currently are with Jordin. “I’ll be lying if I said that…It’s not like we’re hitting each other up, like, ‘Hey, what are you doing today?'”
As for Jordin, pals say she’s trying her best to be the bigger person. During an appearance on the Today show on Sept. 29, the “Battlefield” singer said, “I’m good, actually. I read this book the other day. It said, ‘When something unexpected happens in your life or you think something bad is happening, just say plot twist, and move on.”
