Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Jason Derulo is again available as he and his model girlfriend for six months, Daphne Joy, reportedly called it quits.

Derulo and Joy first started dating rumors back in November 2015. An insider confirmed during that time that the two “really like each other” and that their relationship is carefree and easygoing. The 26-year-old singer and the 29-year-old model reportedly hit things off when they were in London.

It was not yet clear what led to the split but many are speculating that it had something to do with the model’s ex, rapper 50 Cent. 50 cent and Joy share a three-year-old son together named Sire Jackson.

Just this March, Joy and Derulo were spotted having a romantic vacation at Casa Aramara in Punta Mita , Mexico. The two packed on the PDA and showed off their beach bods while on the tropical destination. The singer even posted photos from the trip on his Instagram page. One of the photos showed him with his then-girlfriend and he captioned it with the words “Great Decisions.”

Last January, Derulo shared at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards that he is just enjoying life as of the moment and he want to keep his private life away from the public eye. He added, "I don't want to talk too much about it, but I'm definitely enjoying life right now."

Joy and Derulo got together a year after he and Jordin Sparks split in 2014. The split was very controversial as it was reported that Derulo broke things off via text. It was reported that the two split due to their busy schedules while others say Derulo cheated on Sparks.

In an interview with Billboard magazine in the past, Derulo talked about not wanting to be in a relationship as of the moment. He shared, “I do get tired of playing nice. Especially when people think I did something wrong, or that she broke up with me. But it’s so behind me.”

Derulo and Joy are yet to make a public statement confirming the split.
