Jason Derulo has split from his girlfriend Jena Frumes, just four months after they welcomed their first child.
The couple started dating in March 2020, and went on to welcome a baby boy named Jason King in May 2021.
Announcing the sad news on Twitter, Jason tweeted: “Jena and I have decided to part ways.”
Jena and I have decided to part ways.
She is an amazing mother but we feel being apart at this time will allow us to be the best versions of ourselves and the best parents we could be. Pls respect our privacy in this time.

“She is an amazing mother but we feel being apart at this time will allow us to be the best versions of ourselves and the best parents we could be,” he wrote.
“Pls respect our privacy in this time.”
The news came as a surprise to fans, as Jena had posted a sweet birthday tribute to Jason the day before.
In a since-deleted Instagram post, the model wrote: “You are the most handsome, hardworking, talented, silly, loving human ever.”
“You truly make me whole and I’m so grateful for the love we share. You and our mini make me the happiest girl in the world and I can’t wait to make more memories with you guys.”
“I know I’m a tough cookie but you make me soft and accept me for who I am and I’m forever grateful for that. Cheers to another year! I love you so much, forever.”
