Both Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo are opening up about what lead to the end of their nearly three year relationship.

The "Battlefield" beauty first spoke on this morning's Today show after she was asked how she's been handling the split.

"I'm good, actually," she explained with a smile. "The funny this is I read this quote, 'When something unexpected happens in your life or you think something bad happens, just say, plot twist! And move on.'"

 Sparks' response echoed her earlier sentiments late last week, when she broke her silence on the breakup in a tweet that read:

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."

Meanwhile, Derulo stopped by On Air With Ryan Seacrest and was way more candid about what was really going on between the famous duo.

"Every relationship has ups and downs. There was a lot of pressures of marriage. There was a lot of arguing and stuff like that that just weighed on our relationship over time," he explained.

When asked if he and Sparks were in a good place yet, he answered extremely honestly.

"I wouldn't say good terms," he admitted. "I'll be lying if I said that, but it's not a bad situation. There's no bad blood. We didn't end off on a weird way or a negative way. It's not like we're hitting each other up, like, ‘Hey, what are you doing today?'"

The two first made their relationship public back in January 2012, but they were first romantically linked as a couple in September 2011.

But alas, it turns out that their onscreen love story didn't quite pan out in real life.

Just hours after E! News exclusively broke the news of the split, Derulo opened up to KDWB-FM's Big D about the ultimate decision to pull the plug on his romance with Sparks.

He explained that there's no bad blood between them and adding that the former longtime couple will remain friends. 

"Yeah, everything is cool, man," he said. "It's not a bad situation. You know, it's not one of those kinda things."

The two first made their relationship public back in January 2012, but they were first romantically linked as a couple in September 2011.
