Joe Jonas, who has been the center of negative publicity after former girlfriend and fellow multi-platinum singer Taylor Swift dished about their recent breakup, is now trying to defend himself.
The 19-year-old singer,who was believed to dump Taylor Swift after meeting actress Camilla Belle, wrote a post on MySpace.com celebrity blog page Thursday, to give his side of the split, though he didn’t mention the 18-year-old country star by name. (It had also been posted to the Jonas Brothers’ own MySpace page but had been removed by Friday afternoon.)
Joe Jonas wrote: “I never cheated on a girlfriend. It might make someone feel better to assume or imply I have been unfaithful but it is simply not true. Maybe there were reasons for a breakup. Maybe the heart moved on. Perhaps feelings changed. I am truly saddened that anything would potentially cause you to think less of me.”
As for the “27 second” phone call, he revealed: “I called to discuss feelings with the other person. Those feelings were obviously not well received. I did not end the conversation. Someone else did. Phone calls can only last as long as the person on the other end of the line is willing to talk. A phone call can be pretty short when someone else ends the call. The only difference in this conversation was that I shared something the other person did not want to hear. ”
According to Joe Jonas, he has tried to call Swift since then and gotten no response, saying: “There were later attempts at communication that had no response”. He said he wishes the best for “the other person but could not sit back any longer and leave our fans with a wrong impression of the truth. Hope this helps enlighten a little.”
Taylor Swift has said Joe Jonas inspired at least one heartbreak song on her new CD, “Fearless,” and in a recent interview, she revealed: “If you don’t want me to write about the things that you do, then don’t do bad things for me to write about!”
But in response to Jonas’ online posting, her publicist, Paula Erickson, simply said Friday night: “Taylor [Swift] has moved on.”
