It was during an interview with Joan Rivers (of all people) on E!’s “Fashion Police” Friday night.
The weekly fashion-critique series originated from New York, where the garment industry’s annual Fashion Week was under way. All three Jonas Brothers — Nick, Joe and Kevin — appeared as guests on the temporary “Fashion Police” set that had been installed at New York’s Lincoln Center to cover the fashion shows.
It was there that Rivers raised the subject of Taylor Swift, who Joe Jonas dated in 2008. He reportedly broke up with her via text messages.
“Now, Joe, you’re the one that dumped Taylor Swift — broke her heart,” said Rivers to raise the subject.
"I think it's me - and a few others!" Joe said, implying that Swift has had many boyfriends who have broken up with her (and then became the subject of some of her songs).
"But you did it over the phone and you got three songs written about you!" Rivers said.
Then brother Kevin made this quip: “We still haven’t seen the royalty check – it’s weird!”
