Jason Derulo and model Jena Frumes met at the gym at the beginning of 2020 and grew close during the pandemic
Jason Derulo announced his split from girlfriend Jena Frumes four months after they welcomed their son.
The 32-year-old and Jena started dating in March 2020 and welcomed their son Jason King on May 8.
He took to his Twitter to share the news and asked fans for “privacy in this time”.
“Jena and I have decided to part ways,” Jason tweeted. “She is an amazing mother but we feel being apart at this time will allow us to be the best versions of ourselves and the best parents we could be.
“Pls respect our privacy in this time.”
The former couple both have their birthdays on 21 September and Jena took to Instagram to share a cute post days prior to their breakup.
“Blessed to share the same day of birth with my lover. You are the most handsome, hardworking, talented, silly, loving human ever,” she wrote on their birthdays.
“You truly make me whole and I’m so grateful for the love we share. You and our mini make me the happiest girl in the world and I can’t wait to make more memories with you guys.
“I know I’m a tough cookie but you make me soft and accept me for who I am and I’m forever grateful for that. Cheers to another year! I love you so much, forever.”
She later deleted the birthday post but has kept other photos and videos of the two together on her Instagram page.
After welcoming their son back in May, Jena took to social media to announce the exciting news.
She wrote: “A glimpse of my first week with our healthy handsome little king.
“Life now has so much more meaning & I am so grateful. I’m so so so in love with this little boy he’s everything I never knew I needed.”
Jena finished the gushing post: “I love you forever @jasonderulo.”
Shortly after Jena’s post, the singer shared an emotional video of the pair’s journey to the hospital and labelled his son’s birth as the “happiest day of my life”.
Announcing his son’s name, Jason finished the post by saying: “He’s so lucky to have such a strong caring hero of a mother @jenafrumes.”
Among Jena’s reel of photos included a snap of her holding her newborn son’s tiny hand.
The pics that followed showcased the new mother during her stay in hospital.
