The pair 'mutually' decided to end their relationship after 20-months of dating but 'remained friends.'
Joe Jonas is now single again after splitting from graphic designer/model Blanda Eggenschwiler. The former lovers have called it quits after being together for nearly two years.
"Joe and Blanda have mutually decided to part ways," a representative for the 24-year-old singer told Us Weekly, "the split was amicable and the two remain friends, with great respect for one another."
A source told E! News that the two remained in good terms since the split was "mutual." The source said, "They both wanted to do new things. Joe wants to be single right now and they thought it was better if they are just friends."
The former Disney star and the 30-year-old beauty started dating in November 2012 after getting to know each other through a mutual friend. In the following months, the singer and his Swiss-born lover frequently stepped out together at various Hollywood events. However, the passion seemed burnt out when they appeared together at the Cadillac & Refinery29 party on June 19. "He posed for photos by himself and then stormed inside," an insider told Us Weekly.
The former member of the disbanded Jonas Brothers previously dated celebrities including Demi Lovato, Camilla Belle, Ashley Greene and Taylor Swift. Taylor's split from Joe inspired her to write the songs "Forever and Always" and "Last Kiss" in 2009.
Joe made no mention about the split when talking to VH1 at Lollapalooza over the weekend. The singer said that he's "focusing on music, acting and writing" his own material. He also said, "The last year there's been a lot of different changes, so I've been able to have a lot of time for myself and do different things- things that I enjoy doing- like DJ-ing, or starting a cooking show, or getting a house. Getting things like that started. That's been a lot of fun."
