Three relationship experts tell HollywoodLife.com that Ashley and Joe may have gotten to close, too fast…especially with Joe’s ex-girlfriend, Demi Lovato, still in the picture!
Joe Jonas has pretty much broken every relationship rule in the book. Not only did he screw over his best friend, Demi Lovato, by dating her and dumping her after two months, but then asked his NEW girlfriend, Ashley Greene, to join him on tour….the one that Demi is ALSO currently a part of! Talk about awkward!
HollywoodLife.com consulted three top relationship experts who all agree: Joe, 21, really shouldn’t have invited Ashley, 24, to travel around the world in the early stages of their relationship ESPECIALLY when he had unresolved issues with his ex still lingering in the background. Bad move, Jonas!
“It is a lose-lose situation,” New York-based relationship expert Amanda Kane, LSW, tells us. “An omnipresent ex-girlfriend is the ultimate poison for a new relationship. Nothing good can come of it. Jealousy and drama are inevitable.”
Not only is being on tour with your ex-girlfriend and your current girlfriend a high-drama situation, but one expert says that Ashley and Joe have definitely moved too quickly. In less than three months, the new couple had traveled all over the world together — plus, Joe took off his highly
publicized purity ring.
“Being with someone 24/7 is like being in a relationship pressure cooker,” Maryanne Comaroto, relationship expert and author of Hindsight: What You Need To Know Before You Drop Your Drawers, explains. “You will find out everything you wanted (and didn’t want necessarily) to know about someone quickly.”
Liz Langley — another leading relationship expert — also points out that Joe probably should have spent his energy on perfecting his tour instead of focusing on a new girlfriend.
“Both your love and your work deserve your full focus,” she says, adding, “Work at work and when it’s time to take a romantic trip you’ll be all in — 100% there — and get the most out of it.”
Despite all the potential heartache and the drama, we still think Demi is handling the situation like a champ. And she’ll be the one having the last laugh if Joe and Ashley’s fast-paced relationship fizzles out as quickly as it began!
Do you think Ashley Greene and Joe Jonas have moved too fast? Do you think they’ll last?
