Joe Jonas appeared to walk back some past shade about his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift. The singer just showed support for his friend Taylor by changing the lyrics to a song the Jonas Brothers wrote about the pair’s breakup more than a decade ago.

On Saturday, a fan shared a video of the Jonas Brothers performing the song “Much Better” on stage at their Friday show in Las Vegas. In the video, Jonas sings the opening lines to the song as, “I got a rep for breaking hearts / Now I’m cool with superstars / And all the tears on her guitar / I’m not bitter.” The original lyrics, which seemingly refer to Swift’s debut album hit “Teardrops on My Guitar,” include the line, “Now I’m done with superstars.”

The pair, who dated for three months back in 2008, spent years at the center of public attention after Taylor’s infamous revelation that Joe had brutally dumped her over the phone, in a call that lasted just 25 seconds. During an appearance on The Ellen Show in November 2008, Taylor, who was 18 at the time, and promoting the release of her album Fearless stunned the audience as she blasted Joe on television.

“When I find that person that is right for me, he’ll be wonderful. And when I look at that person, I’m not even gonna be able to remember the boy who broke up with me over the phone in 25 seconds when I was 18,” 

Roughly seven months later, Joe who’d received a ton of hate from supporters of Taylor, released the infamous song titled “Much Better” with his and his brothers’ band, the Jonas Brothers. In the track, he appeared to throw some shade at her. Although, he never officially confirmed who the track was about, fans had plenty of reason to believe that Joe was referencing Taylor. 

Over the years, the two went back and forth with digs about their past, including Taylor’s memorable Saturday Night Live monologue in 2009 and Joe’s infamous quip that “the girl likes to date” a few years later. In recent years, the pair have remained super amicable. Joe said that the two were “cool” with each other after they were spotted hanging out at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. It appears, the pair have buried the hatchet for good.
