Olivia Culpo’s boyfriend, Nick Jonas, admitted that he was “jealous” in the early stages of his relationship.
The couple, who attended Taylor Swift‘s birthday party on Sunday, have been dating for 18 months, and while Jonas said his relationship with the former Miss Universe is more stable now, he conceded it took some time before there was trust in their relationship.
“I think earlier on in my relationship, there were times where I would get jealous,” Jonas admitted to the New York Post‘s Alexa Magazine.
“I think with time and trust built up, a lot of that went away,” Jonas said. “We have a really strong relationship now. It takes a second until you feel really locked in with someone.”
On the other hand, the 22-year-old singer said his sex life is “healthy.”
“As far as the sexuality goes, I think that just happened for me over time, I think sex is part of a healthy life,” said the former Jonas Brothers singer.
“So I have tried to be, in my transition into adulthood, as honest with myself as possible with sex and sexuality and what it means to me so I can try to be as healthful as I can.”

Jonas, as you may recall, sported a purity ring as a teenager and was so afraid of destroying his reputation that he made his own bed when he stayed in hotel rooms. Although he has grown into a different view about sexuality, he told the magazine he doesn’t regret that decision.
“I don’t regret [wearing a purity ring]. I think that it was an important part of my childhood,” he said.
“As I grew up, I sort of figured out what was important to me, my own belief system, which we all grow up, we all live life and find out what’s important to us. I am now comfortable with who I am and what I believe in.”
