Aww! Nick Jonas told Ellen DeGeneres that it’s been hard readjusting to life without his ex, Olivia Culpo, and our hearts break for him. He said he feels ‘alone’ — is that Nick denying that he’s dating Kate Hudson?
Nick Jonas, 23, has been getting cozy with Kate Hudson, 36, but on the Ellen Show on Oct. 22, he confessed to Ellen DeGeneres that life’s been tricky since he and Olivia Culpo, 23, ended their 2-year relationship. After revealing that he lives in one of Ellen’s houses and pays her rent — hilarious — the “Levels” singer admitted that getting back to music and acting on multiple TV shows hasn’t been so easy without Olivia at his side.
“It’s an adjustment,” Nick revealed in his interview with Ellen. “I was with my ex now for two years and then [my] life dramatically changed.” Nick admitted he’s doing okay”-ish”, and is just trying to stay busy by focusing on his music, as well as his starring roles on the shows Scream Queens and Kingdom. “I started touring and doing all these projects. It was an adjustment kind of doing it alone,” he said, but Ellen disagreed. “You don’t seem to be alone,” she winked, referring to his relationship with Kate Hudson. “There’s someone who ends up being in the same city as you all the time coincidentally!” Nick’s cheeky reply? “I’m never alone. I have you.” Ha, so cute! WATCH the clip below:
So Nick’s still mum on the subject of him and Kate, but he was happy to talk about living under Ellen’s roof. “I don’t know if anyone knows this probably not, but I am your landlord,” Ellen told the audience. Don’t worry, Nick pays his rent on time and takes care of Ellen’s (probably very expensive) furniture. “I have everyone that comes in my house use a coaster so there’s no rings on the tables,” Nick claimed. Ellen got a “healthy deposit” out of him just in case! We can’t help but wonder if Kate has seen the house, which is gorgeous enough to feature in Ellen’s new book Home, out Oct. 27.
