Jason Derulo may have broken ex-girlfriend Jordin Sparks’ heart all over again after confessing he was never truly in love with the singer.
The two 25 year olds ended their longtime romance in September and Sparks has found new love with rapper Sage The Gemini, and now her ex has told DuJour magazine he walked away because he realized he hadn’t found true love with Sparks.
The Talk Dirty singer says, “I think everything happens for a reason. I think I was in that relationship for a reason, and I don’t regret anything, but at the same time I know how good it feels to be on my own right now. It’s pretty clear that I’m not ready for that. I’m just not in the right space.
“I think true love can never be broken, so I don’t think that I have found true love.”
He previously claimed the pressure of marriage weighed a lot on his decision to end the romance, adding, “There was a lot of arguing and stuff like that… When you stop having more good times than bad times, it’s time to call it quits. It becomes something that is unhealthy.”
Meanwhile, earlier this week, Sparks told Access Hollywood Live she spent 21 days mourning the end of her romance and then decided it was time to get on with her life.
She explained, “I was like, ‘I’m gonna give myself 21 days’, and I let myself feel everything that I needed to feel. I woke up on the 21st day and I was like, ‘Alright…’”
And now Sparks insists her romance with DeRulo is very much in the past: “It wasn’t the right thing for either of us, and sometimes you’re in somebody’s life to make them better for the next person.”

Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini has the fastest-selling album of 2014 so far.
Paolo’s Caustic Love has topped the charts with more than 100,000 sales, just seven days after its release.
Nutini’s record sales knocked previous record-holder Sam Bailey, with 73,000 copies in one week, off the top slot.
Paolo recently hit the headlines when he confessed that ''walking on stage scares the s**t'' out of him.
The 'Last Request' hitmaker - who will be on tour in the UK between May and June this year - insists his ''nerves'' drive him to take to the stage despite fears about performing in front of an audience.
He told The Sun: ''It's a challenge stepping out in front of all those people. It's never felt entirely natural and I don't think it ever will.
''Walking on stage scares the s**t out of me, big time. But it's not a bad thing because those nerves drive me.”
He added: “Now I'm ready for it.''

Heidi Range is enjoying being 30 as she feels more comfortable with herself.
The Sugababes star - who celebrated turning 30 last year with a birthday trip to Rome, Italy - insists she isn't worried about getting older as she now feels more confident in her own skin.
When asked how she feels about being 30, she said: ''I'm loving it. You get a bit more comfortable with yourself don't you?''
The blonde beauty - who says her current relationship with property developer Alex Partakis is ''going great'' - is currently starring in a touring production of 'Happy Days: A New Musical', which is based on the popular US sitcom.
Though Heidi has found appearing on stage a ''challenge'', she has quickly got to grips with the process because of her dance background.
She added to Hello! mag: ''You're putting yourself out there for people to comment on what you're doing. It's all a challenge, especially with it being a new show. But I trained as a dancer when I was younger so in a way it's a bit like getting back on a bike.''
Heidi tweeted yesterday "Suitcase packed, and so it begins...@HappyDaysUKTour First stop, Brighton, who's coming to see us? X"
