Joe Jonas is caught in the middle of the throes of young love.
The hunky 26-year-old DNCE frontman is kind of crushed after his ex-girlfriend, blond bombshell Gigi Hadid, stepped out with a new man, former One Direction member Zayn Malikjust weeks after calling it quits. Most recently, the pair was spotted holding hands as they left a late-night eatery together around 2:30 a.m.
"Joe is doing well," a source revealed to E! News exclusively. "He was a bit upset how fast Gigi went out in public with Zayn, but it is what it is at this point."
While the show must go on, the insider also told E! News Jonas' heart still aches for the Maybelline cover girl.
"He still has feelings for Gigi that won't just disappear overnight. They did love each other and he still has a love for Gigi. He is not looking to rush into another relationship though just yet," a source told E! News. "He is focusing on his music and new projects that are in the works. He has some great friends and family around so, like anything, he knows his feelings for Gigi will pass with time."
While Hadid has clearly moved on to a new dark-haired singer, does the blue-haired crooner have his eye on a new lady himself?
"He has many options of women, but he is a pretty picky guy," added the source, which explained that it will have to be the right girl at the right time for him to jump back into the dating pool.
As for the runway star, she may no longer swoon over the Jonas brother anymore, but her friends miss him all the same.
"Her friends just want her to be happy, but feel she should be single for a bit. They loved Joe. They want Gigi to protect her heart though.
Despite her friend's continuous concerns, Hadid knows what she wants. "Gigi does very well like Zayn," including his style and charm, the insider shared with E! News. "Zayn is very different than Joe, but shares some similarities as well. Zayn has an edge that Gigi likes."
Still, her gal pals insist there are some red flags to keep an eye on. "Her friends think he has a bit of a bad boy attitude, so [they] want her to be careful," the source revealed. "Gigi is a relationship girl and likes the company of a guy."
