Miley, Selena, Taylor and Camilla — oh, my! For three guys who have famously pledged their abstinence , the [artist id="2088128"]Jonas Brothers[/artist] have had an excellent year dating, dumping and denying romances with some of the hottest girls on the scene. In 2008, they became the heartthrobs that tween girls everywhere hung up on their bedroom walls and locker doors. And thanks to a select few starlets, and one regular girl (lucky her!), the brothers seem to have been receiving some personal adulation too.
It’s like they say, don’t hate the player, hate the game. Let’s take a look at how the “Lovebug” bit the JoBros this year.
Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus
He may be only 16, but he knows how to pick them. It all started innocently enough when he was dating fellow up-and-coming Disney star [artist id="2408193"]Miley Cyrus[/artist]. For the two years they were together, neither party officially acknowledged their relationship. But after their breakup, when she was promoting her new album over the summer, Miley told Seventeen magazine all about it. (She highlighted her hair for him!) And for the video to her ultimate breakup song “7 Things,” she opened up to director Brett Ratner . “She started showing me all of her personal items from under her bed that her ex-boyfriend gave her,” Ratner told MTV News. “The necklace she’s wearing in the video is the necklace he gave her. She’s wearing his diabetes or medical necklace.”
Nick Jonas and Selena Gomez
Like many boys before him (including his older brother), Nick seems to think the best way to heal a broken heart is by finding new lady. And he found himself back in the relationship saddle with “Wizards of Waverly Place” star Selena Gomez . The pair never confirmed their relationship, but Gomez does have a cameo in their Then again, in October, both Nick and Selena declared in separate interviews that they were single.
Joe Jonas and Taylor Swift
Really, where do we start with Joe? The 19-year-old went from 0-60 in the romance department when rumors started spreading that he was dating country crossover queen Taylor Swift . Over the summer, they were seen going out on a supposed double date with Nick and Selena. They were seen canoodling at the VMAs. And then, out of nowhere, Joe dumped Taylor. It was a surprise to everyone, especially Taylor, who went around town sullying Joe’s good name . After he allegedly ditched her for Camilla Belle in a 27-second phone call (which he denied on his MySpace page), she used the whole thing as fodder for a song, “Forever and Always,” on her hit new album, Fearless.
Joe Jonas and Camilla Belle
Joe Jonas and Camilla Belle reportedly caught the “Lovebug” when she starred in the song’s video. With the exception of one vacation in Mexico, they refuse to be seen out in public together, and Camilla has been seen around town with “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson. Perhaps it’s karma.
Kevin Jonas and That Regular Girl
Unlike his younger brothers, Kevin doesn’t date famous girls. The 21-year-old was caught on a date with some non-celebrity named Danielle Deleasa in Los Angeles. He later said he was “always dating, but in the end, single” — no doubt giving regular girls everywhere hope for their own Jonas romance.
