Joe Jonas Claims Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato Introduced Him to Weed

Joe Jonas claims Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato peer-pressured him to try weed.

Joe Jonas has claimed Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato encouraged him to try marijuana.

The squeaky clean star has said his fellow Disney Channel stars, who are both three years younger than him, pressured him into smoking a joint when they were teenagers.

Joe, 24, told Vulture magazine: "The first time I smoked weed was with Demi and Miley. I must have been 17 or 18. They kept saying, 'Try it! Try it!' so I gave it a shot, and it was all right. I don't even smoke weed that often anymore."

The singer also opened up about his rocky relationship with Demi, claiming the X Factor USA judge, who went to rehab for "physical and emotional issues" in 2010, was actually struggling with full-blown "drug abuse" and he only stayed with her because he wanted to help her.

Joe recalled: "I really got to know her and got to see the ins and outs of what she was struggling with, like drug abuse. I felt like I needed to take care of her, but at the same time I was living a lie, because I wasn't happy but felt like I had to stay in it for her, because she needed help.

"I couldn't express any of that, of course, because I had a brand to protect."

The Jonas Brothers star hinted he lost his virginity to his first "serious" girlfriend Ashley Greene, for whom he ditched his purity ring aged 20.

Joe, who also dated Taylor Swift as well as Demi, joked he was glad he waited for the right girl and not his "bats**t crazy" ex.

In the revealing Q&A, he said: "I lost my virginity when I was 20. I did other stuff before then, but I was sexually active at 20. I'm glad I waited for the right person, because you look back and you go, ''That girl was bats**t crazy. I'm glad I didn't go there.'''

Joe's band The Jonas Brothers split in October.
