Forget Angelina Jolie vs. Jennifer Aniston: Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas are in the middle of an excellent battle of words over their recent breakup. Swift alleges that Joe dumped her in a 27-second phone call and immediately leapt into a relationship with actress Camilla Belle (who was reportedly in 10,000 BC, though nobody actually saw that movie to confirm it). “They’ve been together since we broke up,” Swift told Us. “That’s why we broke up — because he met her.” Belle and Jonas met on the set of the Brothers’ “Lovebug” video. Joe and his siblings quickly issued a response.
“Several things I will state with all my heart…I never cheated on a girlfriend,” Joe tells the tweeners displeased by his lothario ways. “It might make someone feel better to assume or imply I have been unfaithful but it is simply not true. Maybe there were reasons for a breakup. Maybe the heart moved on. Perhaps feelings changed. I am truly saddened that anything would potentially cause you to think less of me.” As for that 27-second phone call, “I called to discuss feelings with the other person. Those feelings were obviously not well received. I did not end the conversation. Someone else did. Phone calls can only last as long as the person on the other end of the line is willing to talk.” And just to twist the knife a little more, Joe adds “There were later attempts at communication that had no response. I wish the best for the other person but could not sit back any longer and leave our fans with a wrong impression of the truth.” Swift, it’s your turn to blog post.
