Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato have been friends since their Disney days. Both 23, they are now co-headlining the "Future Now" tour proving it is possible to escape the child star curse but you won't escape without obtaining a few bruises along the way.

During an interview with Billboard, Jonas and Demi Lovato's manager Phil McIntyre admitted that Nick's experience with the Jonas Brothers left him "bruised and a little jaded." Meanwhile, the "Confident" singer just marked four years of sobriety after a long battle with mental illness and addiction.

Check out these 5 things we learned about Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato from their Billboard interview.

1. Demi Lovato didn't like Olivia Culpo while she was dating Nick Jonas.

Following his split from Olivia Culpo, Nick Jonas called Lovato to tell her about the break up. The "Cool for the Summer" singer revealed, "I go, 'Honestly, I didn't like her anyway.' It's not because she's mean or anything, but he has such a great sense of humor and I want him to be with someone that makes him laugh. I can tell if something's up because he'll close off. "

2. Demi Lovato doesn't think of her Disney days as fun times.

The songstress told Billboard, "We joked around that it was Disney High, except we all were shooting shows and really overworking. I joke that I sometimes have PTSD after leaving the channel, because if my schedule starts to get too busy, I rebel and I get b****y..."

3. Nick Jonas was upset with Demi Lovato when she left the 2010 Jonas tour after she punched a dancer in the face.

Jonas explained, "That we were going to get sued. I mean, it was bad. On top of losing a friend, we have seven dates left, it's a big production, people are expecting to see Demi and that's not going to happen. I was angry, because a week before I pleaded with her to confide in me. We talked on the plane for two hours."

4. Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas' romance made Nick feel uncomfortable.

The two reflected on their friendship during their "Camp Rock" movie days. Jonas explained, "Well, for a couple of years there was the Joe and Demi romantic thing, so I'd be this emotional bridge for them. But she and I were productive -- we'd write songs about it. We became even closer because it was never going to be [romantic]."

Lovato added, "There's a song on my first album called "Gonna Get Caught" about how I thought Joe was a player. I remember we were on the bus writing the bridge, and Joe is like, "I think it should have a happy ­ending." I'm like, "No, I don't think it should." And poor Nick is sitting there like, 'What are we actually deciding here?'"

5. Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas insist that they are not stringing along the LGBTQ community for fan base purposes.

Jonas confessed, "Of course. Think about my past and where my love for performance comes from -- musical theater. And playing this gay fighter in a very macho world for Kingdom, it requires me digging really deep, and I do it with respect and honor."

Lovato revealed, "For me, it's a little personal. It's obvious what my ["Cool for the Summer"] lyrics are about. Just because I never said anything bluntly [about experiences with women] doesn't mean I'm exploiting it."
