JOE Jonas has told Demi Lovato he wants to “calm down” their romance.
The Jonas Brothers rocker apparently thinks their relationship — which was made public a few months back — is getting too serious, too soon.
“Demi loves Joe so much, and she knows he feels the same,” blabbed one insider.
“Joe and her had a conversation the other night about how quickly the seriousness of the relationship was getting, and wanted to slow things down a bit.
“Obviously Demi didn’t like what he had to say, but she respects him, and the two are calming things down.”
Joe, the source said, doesn’t like the fact Demi is so open about their private lives.
“He doesn’t like everyone knowing everything, and that’s what ultimately pushed him over the top,” explained the pal. “They both care for each other a lot, just need a little ‘time-out’.”
Demi recently revealed she’s glad her relationship with Joe is out in the open.
“Every time that I’ve started to date someone, I’ve had private relationships, and there’s just so much stress trying to hide it and keep it quiet, that if you just come out and say. ‘Ok, we’re together,’ you don’t have to worry about keeping it such a secret,” she said earlier this week.
“It was not only scary coming out to the public eye, but also the people who we work with, the people who are going to be on tour with us all summer, who are obviously nervous — because you never know what can happen.
“But, I think ultimately, everyone who knows us knows that we’ll always be best friends, no matter what happens.
“We’ve always had an incredible bond, an incredible friendship.
“He knows me better than I know myself, and I know him better than he knows himself.
“There’s been so many times where if it wasn’t for our fans, I don’t know if we’d be together, because they’ve opened up my eyes to seeing — because I thought I was the only one who had a crush.
“And then I would see Jimmy videos online, and feel like, ‘Oh my gosh! Maybe there is something.’”
