Supportive exes? While Joe Jonas Taylor Swift have both moved on from their whirlwind teenage love story, he has seemingly proved there’s no bad blood.

During the Jonas Brothers’ Las Vegas residency concert on Saturday, June 4, the 32-year-old DNCE frontman was caught by eagle-eyed fans changing the lyrics on the group’s “Much Better” track. (The song is allegedly about their split.

In Jonas’ original iteration, he crooned: “I got a rep for breaking hearts / Now I’m cool with superstars / And all the tears on her guitar / I’m not bitter. … Now I’m done with superstars.” The line about “tears on her guitar” seemed to align with Swift’s song titled “Teardrops on My Guitar.”

According to Twitter footage, the New Jersey native switched up the words, singing, “Now I’m cool with superstars.”

While Jonas — who performed with bandmates brothers Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas during the gig — has not further addressed why he changed up the lyrics, eagle-eyed Swifties had plenty of theories.

“Joe Jonas performed ‘Much Better’ for the first time in YEARS the other night and the lyric was changed from ‘now I’m done with superstars’ to ‘now I’m cool with superstars’ to show how he’s grown up and friends with Taylor Swift again and I can’t get over it,” one social media user tweetedThat was the night.

Another added: “This is GROWTH.”

Joe and the “Exile” songstress, 32, previously dated for three months between July 2008 and October 2008. Their messy split was headline-grabbing after Swift accused them of cheating during an Ellen DeGeneres Show appearance that he dumped her via a 27-second voicemail.

“[Joe]Unfortunately, it’s not in my life anymore. That’s ouch. … Someday I’m gonna find someone really, really great who’s right for me,” the Valentine’s Day actress told Ellen DeGeneres that November. “When I find that person that is right for me … he’ll be wonderful. And when I 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.”

Joe, on the other hand, claimed at the time that it was because he tried clearing the air post-voicemail.

“For those who have expressed concern over the ’27-second’ phone call … I called to discuss feelings with the other person. These feelings were clearly not well-received. I did not end the conversation,” the “Sucker” performer wrote via MySpace at the time. “Someone else did. Phone calls are only as long as the person at the other end is willing to talk. When someone else ends the call, a phone call can be very short. … The only difference in this conversation was that I shared something the other person did not want to hear. There were later attempts at communication that had no response.”

Joe has since married. Sophie TurnerIn May 2019. The couple share Willa, a 23-month-old daughter, and are currently expecting their second baby. Swift has been dating actor Joe AlwynSince May 2017.

Since their breakup, Joe and the “All Too Well” musician have reconnected and buried the hatchet.

“It’s something that I probably was feeling bad about when I was younger, but at the end of the day, I’ve moved on and I’m sure Taylor’s moved on and it feels nice,” he said on the U.K.’s Lorraine in June 2019. “We’re all friends and it’s all good.”
