We wish this was #FAKENEWS... but it isn't.
THIS IS HOW DICTATORSHIPS START!!!
CNN immediately (and rightfully) protested the decision saying:
Wilmer Valderrama isn't the only one with a friendly ex!
You may recall the former Camp Rock alums dated for a few months back in 2010 — and it sounds like they've continued to remain close even after going their separate ways.
And considering the Stone Cold singer is touring with Joe's baby bro Nick Jonas, we can't say that's a huge surprise!
Talking to E! News on Monday, the DNCE front man explained his amicable relationship with the 23-year-old beauty:
"She's family. We've known Demi for so many years. We've performed with her, toured with her. She's just incredible."
"It's not always the case. Sometimes you have to know when to fold the cards. I don't think of her as an ex. We're really good friends. We've gone through so much together and we're really close now."
As for his personal life these days, the JoBro said he's focusing on releasing his band's debut album this fall, being an uncle to his older brother Kevin's baby girl Alena, and staying fit (that one's a given!).
When it comes to his 17-month-old niece, Joe gushed:
"It's the best feeling in the world. I love my niece. I'm thrilled to be able to be an uncle and be the fun uncle. I can play with her, hang out with her whenever I want and then just hand her right back when things get too crazy."
And don't think we forgot about all those steamy hot shirtless selfies — which the heartthrob insisted aren't a way to compete with Nick:
"I try to stay away from a competition. For us, we're both pretty healthy and active and train quite a bit so we do our best to make sure we stay on it."
If you're looking for any extra motivation, you know where to find us! LOLz!
