Jason Derulo and girlfriend split - report

Singer Jason Derulo has reportedly split from girlfriend Daphne Joy.

The 26-year-old singer started dating the model, who is 50 Cent's ex, last year (15), and the pair made its red carpet debut at the People's Choice Awards in January (16).

However, according to TMZ.com, the couple has parted ways after Daphne ended the relationship.

Jason opened up about the romance in March (16), revealing details about the pair's date nights.

"I love the simple things," he told People.com "I like just kicking back and getting that one-on-one time, watching a movie at the house, or she (Daphne) cooks dinner. She's an unbelievable cook!"

The former couple also shared a love of fitness, with Jason and Daphne both showing off their buff bodies on holiday together in Miami back in December (15).

Jason began dating Daphne a little over a year after his relationship with fellow singer Jordin Sparks, 26, came to an end in September, 2014.

The stars had dated since 2011, with fans expecting the pair to get engaged, not break up.

The suddenness of the split led to many questions about what went wrong between them, and Jason told British newspaper Metro in May, 2015 he was fed up of being asked about the breakdown of the romance.

"I understand why people ask but it's a bit weird," he said. "The strange part is it's like a prolonged break-up. Instead of it being over and moving on, it keeps on going and going. That's the strange part."

Meanwhile, No Air singer Sparks attempted to move on with rapper Sage The Gemini, real name Dominic Wynn Woods, but they split earlier this year (16).
