They’ve been silent since their split made headlines, but both Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo are now addressing it.

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened,” the American Idol alum Tweeted Friday, appearing to allude to her breakup, which multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE this week.

And Sparks, 24, wasn’t alone in breaking her silence. When Twin Cities radio personality Big D addressed the breakup reports on air Thursday, the “Talk Dirty” singer was hesitant at first, telling the 101.3 KDWB host, “I’d rather not, man … ”

But after trailing off, Derulo, 25, said he and Sparks intend to stay friends. “Yeah, everything is cool,” he said, adding the split is “not a bad situation. You know, it’s not one of those kind of things.”

Still, there seems to be some heartbreak on both ends. Both singers may be channeling their story in the studio. Derulo told Big D he’s already working on new music. And on Sept. 15, Sparks Tweeted: “I just wrote the saddest song of my life.”

Sparks and Derulo were together for three years.

Bobbi Kristina wrote a letter to her mom about the movie saying:

Mom, I know that making the movie Sparkle meant everything to you.

You always told me and Nicholas and the family, “This is for you, this is for us, this is for the family. This is for you Bobbi Kris.” You told me that all the time. I’m so proud that you were able to finish making Sparkle before things happened. You did it for us. Mom, you had such a great time making the movie. You glowed throughout…you just glowed.

My mother being so happy was an absolutely beautiful thing for me to watch. I’m very proud of you.

“I’m taking it one day at a time,” Derulo, 23, tells PEOPLE in his first interview since the accident (which happened during a tour rehearsal) in Miami in early January. “It’s been really eye opening. It’s given me a chance to look at everything and realize how blessed I truly am.”
