Joe Jonas has split from Blanda Eggenschwiler.
The 24-year-old singer hopes to ''remain friends'' with the 30-year-old graphic designer and model after they ''mutually decided'' to end their romance after 20-months of dating.
A spokesperson for the singer told UsMagazine.com: ''Joe and Blanda have mutually decided to part ways. The split was amicable and the two remain friends, with great respect for one another.''
A source close to the duo also told E! News: ''It was mutual. They both wanted to do new things. Joe wants to be single right now and they thought it was better if they are just friends.''
Joe claimed in December that he really cared about Blanda.
He said: ''Now I'm with someone I really care about. We get each other.''
But an eyewitness claimed there appeared to be tension between them a Hollywood party in June.
The source said: ''He posed for photos by himself and then stormed inside.''
The BBC drama starring Aidan Turner returns to BBC One on September 4th.
