The Jonas Brothers have broken up for good just weeks after canceling tour


A few weeks ago, the Jonas Brothers canceled their new tour. Surprisingly, their publicist didn’t gloss over the fissures between the brothers whatsoever – the statements coming out of the tour cancelation were along the lines of “the brothers don’t agree on anything, there’s a lot of fighting.” And those were the official statements! As for unofficial… well, Radar/Star claimed that Joe Jonas is “dealing with substance abuse issues” and has been for a long time, and THAT is the real reason why they canceled the tour. And now People Magazine confirms that the Jonas Brothers have split up for good:

Nearly three weeks after the Jonas Brothers announced they were canceling their tour due to a “deep rift within the band,” the brothers tell PEOPLE that they’ve decided to call it quits.

“It’s over for now,” Kevin Jonas says.

“It’s really hard to say ‘forever,’ ” says Nick. “We’re closing a chapter, for sure.”

“It was a unanimous decision,” says Joe.

It came after a meeting on Oct. 3, where Nick Jonas confessed to his brothers that he had serious concerns about the future of the band.

“I was feeling kind of trapped,” he said. “I needed to share my heart with my brothers.”

For more on the Jonas Brothers’ decision to call it quits, including Joe’s reaction to false reports he had drug problem, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

So, Joe went to People to deny that he had a drug problem? And Nick is the one who pulled the plug on everything? And Kevin is the one with the pregnant wife. Sorry, I just have to keep them straight in my head. Anyway, considering I never gave a crap about the JoBros, I’m not particularly sad with this news. I am interested in conspiracy theories for the breakup though. I’m also open to any speculation about how their mother completely warped them for life. Have at it.

    Is it just me, or is Joe Jonas rocking a Wilmer Valderama look in a lot of those photos?

  2. Tessa says:

    Nick has a pretty new girlfriend that is putting ideas of Justin Timberlake like grandeur in his head, and convinced him that his brothers are dead weight, and he’s better off without them.
    There. Done.

    • Tiffany says:

      You hit the nail on the head. I watched the first season of Kevin’s show and Nick thought he was the 2nd coming of Paul McCartney. I think that Kevin is the one that is going to be alright because he has admitted he likes hosting tv shows. He is not all about the ‘music’.

    • Nono says:

      Is he the youngest one? (I can never keep track of them.) I know the youngest one is the one that actually wanted a career in the music business and who is the most talented of the three. If so, his girlfriend’s sort of got a point, no?

  3. wiffie says:

    The way nick pushes up his biceps to look more ripped in the first pic cracks me up.

    Bet their parents are frantic right now. Who’s going to pay for the compound now??

  4. Elisabeth says:

    i’ll bet Christmas is gonna be awkward

  5. DenG says:

    Why can’t these “guys” not open their eyes?

  6. Greyson says:

    They are so… unattractive!

    And yes, Joe has a HUGE coke problem. He needs rehab, not more denials..

    • DreamyK says:

      I’ve understood it to be heroin addiction as well.

      For all the poo-poohing of blind gossip, they hit the nail on the head with Blanda, Joe’s GF and his drug supplier. Her sister slept with Wilmer (because, of course, right?), saw nekkid pics of Demi Lovato on Wilmer’s phone, nabbed them and was shopping them around. The blind outlined all of this and lo, and behold : the nekkid pics came out but it was no big deal. SO..there is an inside source with the Jonas Bros. and I do believe the fake pregnancy story. Not sure if it will be a fake bump, a quickie adoption or a tragic miscarriage though. What a bunch of connivers.

  7. Eve says:

    Every time I see a picture of The Jonas Brothers my mind goes to that South Park episode and Mickey Mouse beating the shit out of Joe (when he refuses to wear the purity ring). I also love how they keep addressing him as “Mr. Mouse”.

  8. Dani2 says:

    Don’t know why they came back in the first place, they haven’t been all that popular since I dunno, 2008? They shouldn’t even have bothered.

  9. blue marie says:

    I know nothing about these people, how would their mom have warped them?

  10. Erinn says:

    “Pregnant” wife. If you believe the gossip surrounding them anyway. Apparently papa Jonas wanted some buzz for the album and they planned on faking a pregnancy and a miscarriage.

  11. turningviolet says:

    If any of the blind items doing the rounds about this little lot are true then my faith in humanity is lost. Well, not really, but maybe a little, if I actually cared about these sad people. Did any one truly, ever care about them? I honestly could not name one song they sang or had a hit with. Surely all this is for some sort of screwed up publicity (I’m not exactly sure what it’s meant to achieve though)?

  12. Greata says:

    Three not very talented boys who have had their 15 minutes. Three not very talented boys who like most of the mediocre celebs out there have a higher estimation of themselves, that their talent proves.

  13. wiffie says:

    Yeah I remember their fan base was insane, but I don’t remember anything on the radio, and don’t think I could pick out a song of theirs from a lineup. Almost like they convinced the world they were It and the world said, oh, ok!

    And Kevin’s hair ALWAYS reminds me of the south park episode!

    • Nono says:

      Disney owns enough media outlets that it’s easy for them to hype any of their “artists”. Cf Selena Gomez, Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato … Let’s face it: almost no one- not even children- would be buying their records if not for the marketing and media push of Disney.

  14. Ag says:

    I don’t care about these guys one way or the other, and don’t know their “artistic” output, but they do look hilariously constipated in that picture.

  15. Garrett says:

    Oh well. They’ve been done for a while. Their popularity died when Bieber came on the scene. If the rumors about Joe being a drug addict are true, then I hope he gets help or else it will end badly for him.

    • Jayna says:

      But touring is where you make your money. They are young enough to still have a lot of fans who would flock to see them tour after several years off. Their summer tour was successful, so to pull the plug when they picked back up for the winter leg of it last minute means something really big went down. I think he must be really off the rails drugwise.

  16. Relli says:

    I got a ring on my finger to remind me what I cannot doooo….

  17. tifzlan says:

    Wtf is up with Nick’s arms

  18. Bridget says:

    These characters have always been packaged and managed (and styled) to an almost absurd extent – they’re like the musical equivalent of Velveeta. I never really understood how girls could be into 3 guys in coordinating skinny jean ensembles smizing for all they’re worth. It’ll be interesting to see where they end up now that they’ve officially broken up since none of them have really taken off in their respective endeavors. And the middle one lost his pretty.

  19. Yelly says:

    Why are they always squinting?

  20. nicegirl says:

    I believe the blinds about the Joe kid and his famewh-rey gf – drug addiction is hardcore. Also the blinds about the Kevin kid (I think) and his wife faking a pregnancy are pretty upsetting. Praying for a safe and healthy outcome for all. Best wishes.

  21. Bread and Circuses says:

    That first photo is a perfect demonstration of why I’ve never been able to tell these guys apart. I mean, they don’t look alike–they really DON’T–

    But there sure is a family resemblance, and I’ve never cared enough to try to get their names straight, so for me, they might as well be triplets.

  22. VilodeMenus says:

    I’ll be all 75 fans will be so disappointed. I think it could have been lack of ticket sales as much as addiction issues, but brothers breaking up for life? Doubt it with the stage father they have. Anyway, it’s not like two of them can hire a 3rd and continue to buy some songs from the same writers. It’s a manufactured boy band, that has a sketchy background and one out of the 3 hasn’t handled their windfall of money very well. Dad will swoop in and fix this little problem to drag out a few more coins for the family.

    Those are three severely average looking dudes… is this what teenagers go in for these days?
