The sexy singer addressed their breakup during a sit-down with On Air With Ryan Seacrest and, unfortunately, it appears things didn’t end so well.
“I’m not one to throw my business out on the street, but I thought it was important because things are getting a little out of hand,” the 25-year-old said. “What happened…in a nutshell, there was a lot of tension in the relationship for a lot of different reasons. There was a lot of pressures of marriage. There was a lot of arguing and stuff like that that just weighed on our relationship over time. When you stop having more good times than bad times, it’s time to call it quits. It becomes something that is unhealthy.”
One major source of those bad times? Jason revealed that Jordin was ready to take their relationship to the next level. He, on the other hand, was not.
“To be fair, it was not just from her either,” he added. “It was kind of from everybody. That’s not the sole reason, but it definitely played a part.”
Admittedly, Jason wasn’t the only one affected by these pressures.
“We think it may have weighed on her more than it weighed on me. Yeah, she got frustrated a lot. She was in that frustrated space a lot and I think part of that was part of my problem,” he said.
Though he said there were many issues that contributed to the relationship’s ultimate demise, he maintained that cheating was not one of them.
“There’s different stories, like me just having too much going on right now, but it’s a combination of a lot of things. No, there was no infidelity,” he said.
Which lines up with a statement he made to Us Weekly regarding the split last week:
“As in all relationships there are ups and downs and at this time we have decided to amicably part. Infidelity, cheating or deceit played no part in out relationship or our breakup, and I hope that people respect our privacy as we move forward with our lives.”
Though Jason said the breakup was mutual, he also revealed that he and Jordin aren’t exactly on speaking terms at the moment.
“I wouldn’t say good terms,” he said. “I’ll be lying if I said that, but it’s not a bad situation. There’s no bad blood. We didn’t end off on a weird way or a negative way. It’s not like we’re hitting each other up, like, ‘Hey, what are you doing today?'”
We hope both Jason and Jordin can move past this to happier times.
