Nick Jonas‘s romance with Australian pop star Delta Goodrem is officially over.

“Nick and Delta have decided to mutually end their relationship,” Goodrem’s rep confirms to PEOPLE in a statement. “At this point in time, they are both focused on their careers as they go on different paths.”

The statement continues: “They remain friends and wish each other the best for the future.” Jonas’s rep declined to comment.

News of their split comes about a week after Jonas told PEOPLE he was savoring life in New York City, where he’s currently starring on Broadway’s How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying in a role previously played by Daniel Radcliffe and Glee‘s Darren Criss.

“I’m enjoying love, life and friends,” the 19-year-old said in a Feb. 10 interview.

Jonas first stepped out with Goodrem, 27, holding hands on a movie date last May.
