JoJo confirmed her split from Kylie Prew after almost one year of dating and weeks of speculation. Speaking on Paris Hilton's podcast on Tuesday (Nov 2), This Is Paris, JoJo said: "I have yet to talk about this officially, publicly, but we broke up. But she is literally still my best friend. I talked to her yesterday. She just got a new puppy. She's awesome. She's having the time of her life; I'm having the time of my life.
"I'm really lucky that I didn't lose her completely because, you know, even though relationships end, friendships don't have to end."
JoJo, who is currently a contestant on Dancing With The Stars, blamed their hectic schedules and ages for the breakup. And luckily, the former couple are still on very good terms. She added: "I was very happy that it can be, because that's all I wanted. But I'm really happy that I remember all the fun times, all the good times, and nothing bad happened, it just is the definition of a cheesy saying of 'right person, wrong time' and I hate cheesy sayings, but they're true."
The former couple were inseparable with JoJo getting a scene where she has to kiss a man removed from her upcoming movie Bounce partly because she was "madly in love" with Kylie. Kylie also moved from Florida to California and started homeschooling to be able to spend more time with JoJo.
However, speculation that their relationship was over started when Kylie failed to show up as one of JoJo's guests in the audience on Dancing With The Stars. JoJo then confirmed that she was going through it behind the scenes during an interview with her partner Jenna Johnson, which added more fuel to the fire.
JoJo continued: "We're both so young; she's 17, I'm 18, and we are literally best friends. And I would take a bullet for her, and I know she would do the same for me. We just – literally, right person, wrong time." Urgh.
