Joseph Adam “Joe” Jonas (born August 15, 1989) is an American singer, musician, and actor. He shares the lead singer role with his younger brother Nick of the Jonas Brothers, a pop-rock band made up of he and his two brothers, Nick and Kevin. He currently stars as Joseph Lucas in the Disney Channel original series JONAS. He has guest judge on American Idol Season 9 in Dallas.
In 2006, Jonas dated AJ Michalka, as confirmed by Michalka on her MySpace blog. In 2008, Jonas was in a high-profile relationship with country pop singer Taylor Swift. On November 11, 2008, in an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Swift claimed that Jonas broke up with her in a 27-second phone call.In explanation, Jonas wrote on his MySpace blog (in a post that has since been removed): “I called to discuss feelings with the other person, and obviously these feelings were not well received. I did not end the phone call. Someone else ended it for me. Phone calls only last as long as the person on the other end is willing to talk.” Furthermore, Jonas says that he has tried to call her since the breakup, in an attempt at reconciliation, but received no response. But as of early 2010, it has been rumored that Joe and Taylor has “reconnected” as quoted by Joe. During the same interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Swift revealed that the heartbreak song “Forever & Always” on her album Fearless, recorded in late September/early October 2008, was inspired by Jonas. He then began a relationship with Camilla Belle after she starred in the band’s music video for the song “Lovebug”. After almost a year together, it was announced the couple had split.
