·2 min read

Four months after welcoming their first child together, Jason Derulo and Jena Frumes have called it quits.

The "Cats" star announced on Twitter Thursday that he and the model "have decided to part ways" after more than a year of dating.

"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," Derulo, 32, wrote. "Pls respect our privacy in this time."

Derulo told People magazine in August that he and Frumes, 28, met at the gym just before the coronavirus pandemic began. The two started dating shortly thereafter, and Frumes has been a constant feature on Derulo's Instagram and TikTok, where he has nearly 50 million followers.

They welcomed a baby boy, named Jason King, on May 8, 2021.
