Rumors that the Jonas Brothers are breaking up gained a bit more fuel Thursday after People.com reported the “rift” is worse than people thought. At first, it was said the boys couldn’t agree on the music, but there seems to be much more going on than just creative differences.
The guys made headlines when they canceled their 19-date tour just days before it was supposed to take off. But their concerts weren’t the only thing they canceled. They’ve backed away from social media, too.
The band’s official Twitter account @JonasBrothers was deactivated, which only heightened speculation that the Jo Bros are over as a trio. Even though the guys haven’t said why the group account was deleted, their solo accounts @nickjonas, @joejonas and @kevinjonas are still active.
"They are not getting along at all. It's uglier than you think," a music industry source told People.com. "They are each looking into solo projects. Nick and the Administration are working on another album. They are moving forward away from the Jonas Brothers. I think this is the beginning of the end."
The source added, however, that Kevin, 25, Joe, 24, and Nick, 21, are still talking despite the rumors of a breakup. "The idea that this is acrimonious is wrong," the insider said. "The guys are all talking and haven't stopped talking ever."
On Oct. 9, the band’s spokesman Jesse Derris told People.com a "deep rift within the band" had happened regarding the direction of their music.
When Derris was asked about the future of the group, he responded: "It remains to be seen."
Eldest brother Kevin currently has a baby on the way with his wife Danielle, but the band denies that has anything to do with the “rift.”
