It looks like the super-cute pairing between Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas is officially over.

The young couple announces their break-up late yesterday. Joe Jonas, 20, made it very clear that he was the impetus of the split, telling people.com:"Demi and I knew going into our romantic relationship that it may not be an easy one. I realize over the time we have shared together that I feel I care more about our friendship right now. It was my choice to break up, but I love her as a friend. She's been there for me when I needed her. I will continue to be her friend and be there for her."

Rumors circulated yesterday that Demi was already seeing someone new, which she immediately shot down via her Twitter account: "There are so many crazy rumors flying around today. I'd like to clear a few things up. First, Joe and I did split but it wasn't over the phone. Things didn't work out but we'll remain friends. Secondly, I am NOT dating anybody already. Nothing is more important to me than the relationship I have with my fans... Just thought you guys should know this."

It's great to see that the former couple are determined to remain friends, they're more mature than a lot of older couples we know!
