The Record Is Going Straight About JoJo Siwa & Kylie Prev’s Breakup!
As we previously reported, fans have been speculating that the two have been at it for weeks now, when the 18-year-old Nickelodeon star shared an emotional Instagram post on October 9 about having a rough week. And though the two haven’t publicly confirmed anything, JoJo has since continued to drop little hints on social media and in interviews. Perhaps the most telling clue was when he told People last week:
“I struggle when anything is new, and I went through something that was new and I have never gone through before. It was tough and it is still tough. I cried about it last night and I’m probably gonna cry about it tonight because I’m 18 and I’m missing a piece of me that is the biggest piece of me, and that’s okay.”
An insider then told The Sun that JoJo and Kylie split, claiming it was because of the Boomerang singer’s close bond with her Dancing With the Stars partner, Jenna Johnson:
“They split. Kylie became jealous of the relationship JoJo has fostered with Jenna. JoJo is a mess.”
Oh, is that so!
And on Wednesday, Us Weekly confirmed the sad news that he broke up with his girlfriend after less than a year of dating, while clearing the air about some of the rumors floating around. A source told the outlet that the split happened two weeks ago — when fans began to notice Preev’s absence from DWTS viewers and that some of his co-stars were aware of their split. The insider explained:
“Kylie stopped attending the show, so she hasn’t been seen in the audience since they split. JoJo is focusing on the competition and giving her all. While it’s a rough time for her, she’s handling DWTS very professionally and still putting on a smile and giving 100 percent. She doesn’t want to let down her fans.”
Honestly, no one would blame JoJo if she had a moment on the competition series, especially since this was her first serious relationship and breakup! It’s definitely tough!
Also, JoJo has reportedly been dependent on Jenna during this time. The insider explained that the professional dancer is “like a big sister” to the actress, before that she had absolutely “nothing to do” with the split. Who knows, jealousy can be a powerful thing — and we don’t know how Kylie really feels about their partnership until she says something. For now, though, it looks like Jenna may be in the clear!
