Want him to want true love! R&B sensation Jason Derulo opened up to DuJour about his so-far unsuccessful quest for true love, reflecting back on his failed romance with his ex–girlfriend Jordin Sparks.
"I think everything happens for a reason," the "Want to Want Me" singer told the mag in its July 2015 digital cover story. "I think I was in that relationship for a reason, and I don’t regret anything, but at the same time I know how good it feels to be on my own right now."
The "Talk Dirty" crooner, 25, and Sparks, also 25, dated for three years before they ended their relationship in September 2014. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest last fall, Derulo dished details on their not-so-amicable split.
"There was a lot of pressures of marriage," he said. "There was a lot of arguing and stuff like 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."
Since then, Sparks has moved on with rapper Sage the Gemini — and things are getting serious between the two. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight this week, the American Idol winner hinted that she's seeing forever on the horizon. "I'm not the type of person who stays in a relationship if I can't see it going further than a casual relationship," she explained. "I could see marriage, but we haven't really planned anything. He does call me his wife, though."
Derulo, however, has yet to meet his match. "It’s pretty clear that I’m not ready for that," he said of an everlasting commitment. "I’m just not in the right space."
That doesn't mean he's closed off to true love. "I think true love can never be broken," the singer told DuJour. "So, I don’t think I've found true love yet." Check out more from DuJour's July 2015 digital issue.
