Jason Derulo, who has split from his girlfriend Jordin Sparks, said that their break up has nothing to do with cheating or infidelity.

Reports were doing the rounds that the duo called it quits due to infidelity, but Derulo rubbished the rumours.

"Though I think it is a private matter and intended to keep my break-up [with] Jordin personal, due to bogus and irresponsible lies being reported by insensitive media outlets it became necessary for me to comment," the "Wiggle" singer told ABC News in a statement.

Sparks and Derulo, who dated for three years, have reportedly decided to part ways amicably. Their split came as a shock to their fans.

"I spent three great years with Jordin and she is one of the most amazing people that I have ever met. But as in all relationships there are ups and downs and at this time we have decided to amicably part. Infidelity, cheating or deceit played no part in our relationship or our break-up, and I hope that people respect our privacy as we move forward with our lives," added Derulo.

Sparks took to Twitter to tell her fans that she and Derulo have split.

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened," she wrote. 

The couple has always maintained a cordial relationship during their public appearances and have never shied away from showing their love for each other. They seemed to enjoy each other's company at the MTV Video Music Awards held in August.

A report by Hollywoodlife claimed Derulo's success caused the split, as he had to stay away from Sparks. It was also reported that the delay in their marriage plan led to the beak-up.
