JoJo Siwa officially announced how she and her girlfriend, Kylie Prew, have gone their separate ways.
On Paris Hilton‘s “This Is Paris” podcast, the “Dancing with the Stars” personality stated: “I have yet to talk about this — officially, publicly — but we broke up.”
But despite the breakup, Siwa says the two are still closer than ever.
“She is literally still my best friend,” the 18-year-old continued. “I talked to her yesterday. She just got a new puppy. She’s awesome. She’s having the time of her life. I’m having the time of my life.”
Jojo added that she is “really lucky that I didn’t lose her completely,”as it showed her “even though relationships end, friendships don’t have to end.”
Siwa went on to share how: “It just is the definition of a cheesy saying of ‘right person, wrong time’ and I hate cheesy sayings but they’re true,” and added that her “hectic schedule” didn’t give them a fighting chance.
Siwa also spoke on her DWTS pro dancing partner, Jenna Johnson, and how the two are working hard after a less than perfect score this past Monday night.
Jojo admitted she has a blister “the size of a quarter” on her heel, among other strains and bruises, but urges she is “having a blast” on the dancing show.
alongside a female partner, which will be the first time the show will feature a same-sex pairing.
“You’re making history, JoJo,” said the show’s host, Tyra Banks, told Siwa on Thursday at a Television Critics Association event. “This is history.”
Jojo, who shared in April that she identifies as pansexual, is elated for the opportunity.
“I think it breaks a wall that’s never been broken down before,” she said. “Not only do I now get to share with the world that you get to love who you want to love, but also, you get to dance with who you want to dance with. I think it’s really special.”
“There [are] a lot of barriers that we’re going to have to break through,” she said. “Who leads? How do you dress? What shoes do you wear? But I think it’s all something that I’m looking forward to.”
“It would be so incredible, it would mean so much to me — and I think so much to a lot of people around the world — if I partnered with another female,” Siwa said. “So right away, it wasn’t a question.”
