Rumors that the Jonas Brothers are breaking up began to swirl Wednesday when it was announced the boys canceled their tour just two days before its scheduled kickoff. TMZ wrote that the group -- Kevin, Joe and Nick -- are all going in different directions and that the band doesn’t have an identity anymore.
"There is a deep rift within the band," their spokesman, Jesse Derris, told People. "There was a big a disagreement over their music direction." Nick, 21, Joe, 24, and Kevin, 25, apparently had an argument over the weekend, which is what led them to cancel their tour. Fans who purchased tickets will have their money refunded, People wrote.
Each brother reportedly has a different idea of where he thinks the band should go, ranging from pop to hard rock. But what the JoBros have agreed on is that they need to take a break, because if they released any new music it would probably be a disaster since they don’t have any set vision now.
As far at the band calling it quits for good, sources told TMZ “it could go either way.” No official decision has been made yet, but the guys are supposed to meet over the weekend to try to figure everything out.
The JoBros shot to stardom after they signed with Hollywood Records in 2007. They have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide as a trio. The guys have begun to pursue different projects recently, with oldest brother, Kevin, and his pregnant wife Danielle getting their own reality show on E!, “Married to Jonas.” Nick and Joe released solo albums and even tried their hand at acting.
The guys recently released the single “Pom Poms” and “First Time” from their new project “V,” but it’s uncertain what will happen with their music now.
A source told People that Kevin and Danielle becoming parents has nothing to do with the band’s disagreement and added that canceling the tour strictly was about “creative differences.”
