JoJo Siwa splits from girlfriend Kylie Prew again: ‘It’s not deep’
JoJo Siwa and girlfriend Kylie Prew have broken up – again – after briefly rekindling their romance.
In a recent Instagram live, Prew, an 18-year-old social media influencer, confirmed that she has been single for almost two months.
She insisted that there was no bad blood between the pair but had kept quiet about it as she doesn’t like “drama”.
“Someone asked me just now if I was single. I am,” Prew said in the video, re-shared on Tuesday (16 August) on TikTok.
“I been single for almost two months and it’s OK, it’s not deep, I promise.
“Everything’s fine. Not everything has to be messy and gross. Because it’s not. And I just wanted to clear the air.”
Pew said she and the 19-year-old Nickelodeon star are “both safe and happy” and called it quits on good terms.
“It doesn’t need to be drama because that just gives everyone unwanted anxiety, especially if they’re like me,” she said.
Siwa, who came out as pansexual in 2021, has yet to publicly comment on calling it quits.
The So You Think You Can Dance judge first announced that she was dating Prew in February 2021 with an Instagram post celebrating their one-month anniversary.
They paired up after being “best friends” for a month and never leaving each other’s side.
But the Dancing with the Stars runner-up split up with Prew in October 2021 after dating for a year. She was the “right person, wrong time”, Siwa told Paris Hilton on the This is Paris podcast in November.
“I’m really lucky that I didn’t lose her completely because, you know, even though relationships end, friendships don’t have to end,” Siwa said. “I was very happy that it can be because that’s all I wanted.”
In May, the pair took to Instagram to tell their millions of fans they were giving their relationship another try.
“If you love something, let it go, if it comes back,” Siwa wrote on Instagram, sharing an adorable photo of the pair embracing at Disneyland Orlando.
Ever since she came out by proudly wearing a t-shirt reading “best gay cousin” in a social media video, JoJo Siwa said her young fans have come to view her as something of a “gay icon”.
But it’s a title she takes very seriously, stressing that it’s not about being “comfortable” about being a representative of the community, but knowing it’s an “honour” few have.
Speaking at the GLAAD Media Awards in April, she said: “I think it’s really cool now that kids all around the world who look up to me can now see that loving who you want to love is totally awesome.”
She added: “If you want to fall in love with a girl, if you want to fall in love with a boy, if you want to fall with somebody who is a they/them or who is non-binary, that is incredible.
“Love is awesome. You can be in love with whoever you want to be in love with and it should be celebrated, and amazingly now, today in the world, it is.”
