During her appearance Sunday on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, Rita responded to rumors that Nick Jonas wrote his song “What Do I Mean to You” about her.
“I have heard the song and I have heard that rumor and I really don’t know where it came from,” Rita said. ” [I] never [dated him]. I actually met Nick through a friend and it was a very weird situation because we were close, but it never went to that level and then I read the lyric and I kind of messaged him and was like, ‘I have no idea where this came from. If you want to talk about it, call me.’”
Rita continued, “He was like, ‘You know what, I just obviously didn’t put out how I felt across to you properly.’ And it was one of those situations. He never really told me that I think, but regardless we’re still friends and I still have a lot of respect for him.”
He calls her out in the third verse.
I can't embed the video of Rita talking about it but it's here. FF to about 2:50 in the video.
I sort of feel bad LOLing at Nick about this but I still am. Maybe he and Rob Kardashian can start a support group.
ETA: Just cause some people didn't watch the video--she was asked about it. The host took questions from Twitter for her and one of them was a question asking if she'd heard the song/rumors. She answered the question, didn't bring it up randomly on her own.
