R&B star Jason Derulo has moved to end gossip about his split from Jordin Sparks by insisting "infidelity, cheating or deceit played no part" in the breakdown of their relationship.
News of the split broke on Thursday (25Sep14) and the Talk Dirty hitmaker went ahead with a scheduled radio interview in which he confirmed they couple had parted ways and assured fans "everything is cool".
However, DeRulo's remarks failed to stop speculation about the reasons why the three-year romance ended, and he has now released a statement in a bid to silence the gossip.
He says, "I spent three great years with Jordin and she is one of the most amazing people that I have ever met. But 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 our relationship or our break-up, and I hope that people respect our privacy as we move forward with our lives."
