Demi tells the mag that she always had a thing for Joe, and finally mustered up the courage to tell him one day. "Want to know what actually happened?" she says. "One night I asked him, 'What is the deal? We're perfect for each other. What are you doing?' And he was like, 'This is really awkward. I have to go.'"
Joe says he needed time to think, but Demi started to worry. "And I thought, great, I just ruined a friendship. But then the next day, he came knocking at my door."
What did Joe have to say about it all? "Once she confronted me, I kind of confronted myself," he says. Unfortunately, the romantic relationship didn't last long. Jemi parted ways in May, but both stars said they would remain friends.
"I kind of learned through this whole experience that having my private life public isn't as awesome as it might seem," Demi tells Teen Vogue post-split. Yep, breaking up is hard to do. Watch a behind-the-scenes video of Joe and Demi's cover shoot below, and score your copy of the mag next week.
