Jojo Siwa splits from girlfriend Kylie Prew after less than a year of dating

Jojo Siwa and girlfriend Kylie Prew have broken up after less than a year of dating, it has been claimed. 

The 18-year-old Dancing With The Stars contender and Prew, also 18, reportedly split two weeks ago, according to Us Weekly.

‘JoJo and Kylie did break up,’ a source said on Wednesday.  

It had previously been reported that the split was prompted by Prew feeling ‘jealous’ of the close bond JoJo had fostered with her married DWTS pro Jenna Johnson, but the Us source divulged it had ‘nothing to do’ with why they allegedly split.

DailyMail.com has reached out to reps for comment.

‘JoJo and Kylie did break up,’ the source said. It was noted that ‘Some [DWTS] cast are aware about the breakup,’ and that ‘Kylie had stopped attending the show so she hasn’t been seen in the audience since they split.’ 

‘JoJo is focusing on the competition and giving it her all. While it’s a rough time for her, she’s handling very professionally and still putting on a smile and giving 100 percent. She doesn’t want to let down her fans.’ 

The insider added that since the split JoJo has become very close to her same-sex dance partner, Jenna, 27, but she is more like a ‘big sister to JoJo’ and their bond had ‘nothing to do’ with why she and Prew called it quits. 

To complicate the now-bedded DWTS drama, additionally Jenna is married to fellow pro Val Chmerkovskiy who also found himself at the heart of rumors he was having an affair with his partner Olivia Jade this week.

Earlier this week The Sun reported that jealousy over Jenna was to blame for the breakup as well as Jojo’s ‘busy’ schedule.

‘They split. Kylie became jealous of the relationship JoJo has fostered with Jenna. JoJo is a mess. I think JoJo has always been a workhorse, but having a relationship and trying to keep up with a massive star schedule – it’s a challenge.’

In addition to not seeing Kylie in the audience in recent weeks, fans also began to speculate something happened between the pair on account of Siwa’s cryptic Instagram captions. 

She captioned an October 8 video in excerpt: ‘This has been a WEEK. My brain has never been so overwhelmed/overloaded with not only work but also personal life,’ and just days later she wrote in part: ‘Somehow I’ve smiled the most ever this week, while also setting my crying record.’

In an interview with PEOPLE last week the Dance Moms alum continued to speak about ‘missing a piece of me,’ and confessed to having gone ‘through something,’ which seemed to allude to a split. 

‘I struggle when anything is new, and I went through something that was new and I have never gone through before. It was tough and it is still tough. I cried about it last night and I’m probably gonna cry about it tonight because I’m 18 and I’m missing a piece of me that is the biggest piece of me, and that’s okay.’

Their last Instagram post together came on September 25 as Jojo wished their shared puppy a ‘happy daughter’s day.’  

The pair first met on a cruise ship and were friends for a year before things became romantic in early 2021. ‘After being my best friend for over a year, January 8 2021 I got to start calling this exceptional human my Girlfriend,’ she gushed in a post in February.

In late January Jojo came out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community and talked about Kylie and conversation about defining and unpacking her sexuality in an April interview. 

‘I still don’t know what I am. It’s like, I want to figure it out. And I have this joke. Her name is Kylie. And so I say that I’m Ky-sexual,’ she told PEOPLE

At the time she also gushed: ‘She [Kylie] never cares what the internet said about us,’ as she spoke about acclimating to being publicly out. ‘It’s nice to have somebody in my life like that.’
