It’s over! JoJo Siwa and her boyfriend Mark Bonempo have called it quits after a short-lived romance.
The songstress confirmed the heartbreaking news in an Instagram comment from November 17, which was reposted on the TikTokRoom Instagram account. After JoJo revealed she and Mark had split, the blonde beauty defended her ex from internet hate.
“Mark doesn’t deserve hateful things like this. He deserves to have people support him,” the “D.R.E.A.M.” singer wrote, according to screenshots. “You have NO idea about Mark and I’s relationship. How much fun it was. How happy we both were, and how happy we both are. We decided it’s best for us to not be in a relationship … that’s all.”
She added, “We’re teenagers. And our relationship didn’t work out right now. He did nothing. I did nothing. Just better being friends. Relax.”
JoJo further addressed the split during a December 2020 interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“I am single as a Pringle right now. But Mark and I did break up. We were together for three months and it was great. We had fun, we drove through Taco Bell, I think, 450 times. We had some really fun nights. We never actually had any hard times, we never fought, we never were mad at each other. It was honestly a great time,” she explained. “It just, we had to work. He had to do some things in his life that I wanted to be there for him, but he had to be there 250 percent for himself. And I didn’t want to take away from him being able to be there for himself.”
JoJo first told fans that she was off the market in July 2020. The Nickelodeon star posted a video of herself participating in a “put a finger down” challenge on TikTok. When the recording told her to put a finger down if she was single, she kept all of her fingers up, seemingly letting the world know that no, she was not single!
After that, fans quickly went into a frenzy trying to figure out who her mystery man was, and she finally revealed his identity! But wait, who exactly is Mark? How long have they been dating? How did they meet? When did they make things official? What have they said about their relationship so far? Have they posted anything together? Not to worry, people, because we’ve got you covered!
