On Thursday, Derulo, 32, announced that he and his girlfriend Jena Frumes have broken up, nearly five months after the former couple welcomed their son Jason King. The two started dating in March 2020.
"Jena and I have decided to part ways," Derulo tweeted. "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," he ended his note.
