Ex-lovers Joe Jonas & Camilla Belle reunite at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Inaugural Gala tonight in Beverly Hills. More candids of Joe HERE & HERE. Via @lovanas. A representative for the Jonas Brothers has denied rumours the band split earlier this month because Joe is battling addiction.
A rep for Jonas Brothers told Entertainment Tonight that the addiction rumours are completely false, stating, ‘There is no truth to it whatsoever.’ After Joe was spotted with addiction specialist Mike Bayer, rumors started swirling last week the Joe was headed to rehab. Bayar helped Demi Lovato get clean.
Source told E! News long before Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas started their 2013 summer tour, there were discussions among the brothers about how they wanted to resurface the band. The debate was over whether or not they would rebrand with an edgier look and sound to reflect that they were all now twentysomething-year-old guys, or whether they would simply continue to extend the wholesome Jonas Brothers image.
One idea focused on slightly changing their name, by dropping Brothers and simply going by Jonas. The brothers, along with their father, Kevin Jonas Sr., discussed the thought, but the collective decision was to continue going by Jonas Brothers. The bigger conflict was deciding their style of music.
Nick continued to write and produce most of the songs on their album V and the songs reflected what was ultimately a compromise between Joe, who wanted a new rock sound, and Nick, who wanted a development of their old sound with a jazzy feel, including horns and all.
Their first single ‘Pom Poms’ a double entendre about girls shaking their body parts, was a representation of this evolution. + marthazulema_15 10 hours ago I just meet Nick Jonas from the Jonas Brothers while having breakfast! OMG my heart just dropped! #nickjonas #thewaffle #LAlife
