Joe Jonas knows there’ll be no drama when he hits the road with ex Demi Lovato this summer – because their friendship has been stronger since they split up in May.

The Jonas Brothers star ended their brief romance three months before they were due to tour the U.S. together, but he insists the former couple has remained pals and spending time together just as friends has “definitely been cool”.

He tells U.S. DJ Ryan Seacrest, “I think that our friendship is so strong that it surpasses a lot of things and I think touring will be a lot of fun.

“(It’s) definitely been cool. (We’ve been) trying to get together and hang out before we go on tour together.”

And Jonas, 20, dismisses rumours he’s back on the dating scene after being linked to Twilight beauty Ashley Greene, stating, “I’m just a single dude about to go on tour.”

The Jonas Brothers will kick off their tour with Lovato in August.
