Nick Jonas On HIs Missing Purity Ring
Nick Jonas, 22, and his brothers Joe Jonas, 25, and Kevin Jonas, 26, emerged on the pop music scene as an unfailingly wholesome act. All three brothers, who grew up in the church, pledged to remain chaste until marriage and wore purity rings to show their commitment. In recent years, however, the still-unmarried Nick and Joe have stopped wearing their rings.
“This is a real growth in me and not something I'm doing anymore," Nick explained during a HuffPost Live interview. "But I've got my set of values, things that are important to me now at this point in my life and that's all that matters. I've had an incredibly intense journey with faith and religion and my own growth.
“My belief in God is still very strong and important to me as a person and I think that's all that should matter,” Nick, who is currently in a relationship with former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo added. “I grew up in a church environment and still have love for the church. What's important now is my relationship with God, and that I not judge and that I not be judged."
Nick’s brother Joe – who was last dating Blanda Eggeschwiler and has had relationships with Ashley Greene, Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift – revealed in December of 2013 that he lost his virginity at age 20.
Nick and Joe’s eldest brother Kevin, it appears, is the only one of the three to keep his vow of chastity until marriage. Kevin waited to have sex for the first time until marrying Danielle Jonas.
Nick has recently been doing the talk show circuit to promote his solo single "Jealous," for which he debuted the music video on Tuesday.
