Well that rumor died fast! Just two days after Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall and Jason Derulo sparked romance rumors at Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball, she completely shut them down on Twitter. See her tweet here!
Jade Thirlwall, 22, isn’t afraid to admit she’s single! After her fellow Little Mix member Jesy Nelson hinted that Jade might be dating Jason Derulo, 26, at London’s Jingle Bell Ball on Dec. 6, Jade was quick to declare that Jesy’s comment was simply “banter gone wrong.” Despite Jade and Jason getting cozy during their JBB performance, it sounds like Jadeson shippers might be disappointed!
Fans totally noticed some flirting between Jade and Jason when he joined the Little Mix girls for to perform their collab, “Secret Love Song,” and suddenly Twitter was blowing up with excitement over the new potential couple. But the next morning, Jade made sure the rumor — started by her own band member — stopped spreading! “Guyyyys I’m not dating anyone! Me and the girls were joking around…banter gone wrong! xxjadexx,” she tweeted. Darn, Jade and Jason would’ve been so cute together!
In case you missed what Jesy said, she told The Sun backstage, “[Jade’s] got someone on the go. His name starts with a J… then a D.” She added, “He’s very hot. It’s early days.” Although it was Jesy who put the Jadeson idea in fans’ heads in the first place, it seems by the laughing emoji Jade included in her tweet that Jade wasn’t too mad about the romance rumors starting. After all, who wouldn’t want to be linked to Jason?!
While we’re sad to hear that the Jade/Jason couple isn’t actually a thing, it’s probably good that Jade cleared up the rumors early. Jason was just reported to be dating 50 Cent‘s ex Daphne Joy, so that could’ve made for one messy love triangle!
Besides, Perrie Edwards has said that she and Jade love having “a bit of banter with guys in nightclubs” since they are both single ladies, and we’d hate for Perrie to lose her wing woman! As much as we would’ve love to see Jade and Jason together, it sounds like everyone is happy with things just the way they are!
Do you hope Jason and Jade end up dating, HollywoodLifers?
