Joe Jonas Talks Losing Virginity to Ashley Greene in Candid Reddit AMA
Joe Jonas revealed quite a few truths last night (October 11) while participating in a Reddit AMA, where he answered fan questions -- ranging in topic from his past romantic relationships to the dissolution of his former musical outfit, the Jonas Brothers -- with surprising candor.
When asked who he lost his virginity to, Joe encouraged readers to do their research -- essentially confirming fans' years-long speculation surrounding his ex-girlfriend, Twilight actress Ashley Greene.
"I lost my virginity to this girl named Ashley," he wrote. "You can probably just Google it. It's pretty easy to figure out....It's quite the great story because I didn't have any condoms, so I went to our drummer, Jack's room, who was my roommate at the time and I demolished his room looking for them.
"Found them underneath his underwear drawer," he continued. "When he came home, he thought somebody broke into his room because his whole room was demolished because I was in dire need. Needed to happen then and now. Safety first, kids."
"I was seeing a therapist and I wasn't on speaking terms with my brothers. When it happened, we were focussing on going on another tour and we had plans to hit the road and do what we had been doing for a while," Joe wrote. "Nick brought it to the table that he wanted to focus on different things, like acting and doing music on his own."
Joe continued, admitting he felt blindsided when brother Nick first suggested the three of them go their separate ways.
"At first, it was really shocking to me because it was kind of all I had known was the Jonas Brothers, forever. So, I was pretty mad and confused because, I was like, I've been putting so much time and effort into this for so long and now I just have to stop and figure out what's next," he wrote.
The "Cake by the Ocean" singer also noted his upset stemmed from jealousy, as Nick seemed sure of his career trajectory outside of the group.
"And maybe I was a little envious of Nick because I knew that he already had kind of a leg up and had plans to work on music already and he was creating and producing," he continued. "So, I was probably mad at him, too. I remember kind of losing it a little bit and I didn't speak to anybody. I closed myself off and we cancelled the tour and didn't really know what was going on."
Ultimately, Joe says, splitting up was the right choice.
"We were honestly trying to figure out if it was the right decision to call it off or do a final tour or final goodbye, but I think, for all of us, we did it for ten years and it was a lot of time doing one thing," he wrote. "I think that I'm really glad I took so much time away because I'm able to find myself and create music that I'm proud of. I started a little bit of acting and opened a restaurant. I was trying to see if maybe there was a different career path that I would go into. Ultimately, I realized that I really enjoy the music stuff, so that's really where I found home."
And in case you were wondering whether there's any truth to those long-ago rumors that drug addiction tore the Jonas Brothers apart, Joe addresses that too.
"On the questions about the drug addition. That was all false," he wrote. "That probably would have made me look really cool, but unfortunately that wasn't real."
