Could Nick Jonas And Delta Goodrem Have Broken Up Because Of Her Fellow The Voice Judge Joel Madden?

Delta Goodrem Nick Jonas break up Joel MaddenOver the weekend, Nick Jonas and his older girlfriend, Australian singer Delta Goodrem, quietly ended their year-long relationship. The pairing always seemed a bit odd, as they started dating shortly after Delta ended her seven-year relationship/engagement to Irish singer Brian McFadden; not to mention the eight-year age difference.

The couple released a joint statement that was just the facts, ma'am:

“Nick and Delta have decided mutually to end their relationship.

“At this point in time, they are both focused on their careers as they go on different paths. They remain friends and wish each other the best for the future.”

However, ONTD and Dlisted have given us reason to believe that there could be a new twist in the story. You see, on Valentine's Day Dlisted picked apart a recent blind item from Crazy Days and Nights that seems like it can't fit anyone but this couple. As the blind tells it, there's a foreign-born singer/actress (A-list in her country but not really known in the States) who's pretending to date an A-list tween star so that she can get with her real lover, a hasbeen A-list celeb who's married to and has kids with a reality star. The foreign singer and her secret boyfriend will be filming a show abroad soon, which will let them decide if they should try to actually make a go of things.

Does your brain hurt yet? Despite the convoluted blind, it's actually pretty simple. Delta is Australian, and (up until this weekend) dating Nick; it would seem that she's secretly with Joel Madden, who's married to Nicole Richie. Joel and Delta will be judges on the Australian version of The Voice, for which they're filming now.

Yeah, that seems to sum everything up. Alternatively, you could also peg one of the show's other judges, Seal; but even though his soon-to-be-ex-wife Heidi Klum is known for her appearances on Project Runway, she was a supermodel long before she first dabbled in reality TV.

According to Delta fansites, she's been friends with both Joel and Benji Madden for a while; she and Joel got dinner in LA last month, as you can see below.

I for one hope the affair part isn't true; I've always thought he and Nicole Richie were one of the few young Hollywood couples who seemed grounded and actually content with their lives.
