Sometimes love, attraction and happiness simply aren't enough to make a relationship work. This seems to be the case for Joe Jonas and Gigi Hadid, who called it quits after five months of dating, and ET is taking a look at what went wrong.
Two weeks ago, The Insider spoke with Jonas about the music video for his band DNCE's single "Cake by the Ocean," and the 26-year-old singer had nothing but praise for his then-girlfriend, who directed the video.
"She did a great job! It was really cool for people to see on set she's a boss," Jonas said of Hadid's directing. "She had a megaphone, she was in to it, she had her little notebook. She didn't half ass it. I think she has a passion for stuff like this."
On Tuesday, the night before news of their split broke, Jonas hosted a dinner at the Chateau Marmont to celebrate the start of Movember. Jonas "seemed really happy to be with his friends and brother [Nick]," a source tells ET. "He kept busy socializing throughout the night and was very much in the moment, he didn't check his phone that much."
"He's doing OK," the source tells ET. "He's doing good."
So it appears the split was amicable, and that the two still cared for each other in the days leading up to their break-up. So what went wrong?
According to ET's source, the problem stems from Jonas and Hadid's busy schedules and flourishing careers which have them flying across the globe. Despite often talking and Facetiming, the distance proved to be an insurmountable obstacle.
ET's source says Hadid and Jonas see the split as a chance for them to work on their individual projects and passions.
