Jason DeRulo Explains Questionable Comment On Jordin Sparks' Instagram Photo

Hmm...

Jason DeRulo had some 'splainin' to do, after Internet sleuths found a comment he wrote under the Instagram photo of his former flame, Jordin Sparks.

Apparently, the "Swalla" singer was a bit in his feelings while looking at Sparks' pregnancy announcement photo, as he reportedly wrote "I wish that was my boy. #allmysongsareaboutyou." It was announced in November 2017 that the American Idol winner was expecting a child with her husband, model Dana Isaiah.

While the comment was deleted shortly after, the Internet's quickest eyes were still able to screenshot the 'omg' moment. Although it seems like he was a bit desperate, DeRulo claims that he was hacked by jokesters from the reality show, Safeword.

"Relax ppl I was on the tv show #safeword smh," he said. "The show hacked me pages." The purpose of the show is to do on-air dares, all for the sake of a laugh. Ah, how fun. Young M.A., Kevin Hart, Ludacris, LaLa Anthony, Mack Wilds and Lil Rel are some of the famous faces who have participated in the television show.

DeRulo and Sparks dated for three years before calling it quits in 2014. She released a mixtape shortly after called #ByeFelicia, which featured the song "How Bout Now," believed to be aimed directly at DeRulo.

Florida Gunman Convicted Of Manslaughter In Fatal Parking Lot Shooting

A Florida jury convicted a white gunman of killing an unarmed black father during an argument over a parking space. Jurors deliberated for more than six hours before finding Michael Drejka guilty of manslaughter in the July 2018 shooting death of Markeis McGlockton.

McGlockton, 28, was gunned down in front of his 5-year-old son in the parking lot of a Circle K gas station. The father of three was coming to his girlfriend’s defense after she was confronted by Drejka for parking in a handicap space while McGlockton ran into the store. Drejka, who alleged self-defense, claimed that he opened fire after McGlockton took “one step” towards him and shoved him. Drejka attempted to use Florida’s Stand Your Ground law to justify the fatal shooting, and saw no fault in his actions.

“I followed the law the way I thought the law was supposed to be followed. I cleared every hurdle that the law had to put in front of me,” he told a local news station last year.

Prosecutors argued that Drejka provoked the confrontation and video surveillance confirmed that McGlockton was backing away from Drejka. The state’s self-defense argument doesn’t apply if the shooter caused the altercation.

Drejka, who faces up to 30 years in prison, had no reaction to the verdict, CBS News reports. He remains held without bond and is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 10.
