Jason Derulo Denies Dating Jordin Sparks

While promoting his just-released LP Future History, Jason Derulo is getting asked all kinds of questions — like this one from CBS News, about whether or not his latest “collaboration,” with Jordin Sparks, is a romantic one. In the short video clip, Jason’s eyes light up and his head slightly jerks back upon the mention of the Season 6 American Idol winner’s name. Catch his response to the inquiry below. “Jordin Sparks is an absolute sweetheart. She’s a very, very nice, sweet girl,” Derulo told CBS. “We’ve been friends for awhile now, but we’re just friends.”

Aww, shucks. Guess that dashes our hopes for any upcoming lovey-dovey “J-J-J-J-J-J R!”/”Jason De-RU!!-lo!”/”J-J-J-J-J-J-Jordin SpAArrrRRRrrrrKKKKKKKsssSSSssssSSS!!!!” collaboration.
