Jonas Brothers OFFICIALLY ‘Over’

jonas-brothers-breakup
The Jonas Brothers revealed to People Magazine exclusively that they are officially over, for now. 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.

Kevin Jonas: ‘It’s over for now.’ Nick Jonas: ‘It’s really hard to say ‘forever, we’re closing a chapter, for sure.’ Joe Jonas: ‘It was a unanimous decision.’ It all 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, Nick Jonas admitted, “I was feeling kind of trapped, I needed to share my heart with my brothers.’

The Jonas Brothers will be on Good Morning America tomorrow at 7AM ET to talk about the breakup. How do YOU feel about the Jonas Brothers officially being over? Do YOU think Nick broke up the group or one of their girlfriends influenced it?

UPDATE: Source told E! Online: ‘There are no personal issues. They just all wanted different things. They love each other. They always will. Joe wants to do acting and art and his own music. He’s passionate and has his own set of goals.’ Kevin is busy doting on his pregnant wife and focusing on fatherhood.

‘Kevin wants to focus on being a dad. He can’t wait for Danielle to have their baby. His priorities have changed. Nick wants to focus on music and Broadway. The rumors about Joe having any substance abuse problems are totally false. He is fine and he’s the sweetest kid ever. They have different career aspirations now. They are not the same people they used to be. Family comes first which is why this was the best decision for them as brothers.’

    I never thought I’d be this sad to hear about this… Let’s hope at least that it’s not effecting their family relationships as well !

  • anon

    Nick is actually hilarious, he was the one in charge this time around. If anything Kevin and Joe should have felt trapped. What was Nick trapped about? Trapped in the closet for sure.

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      PREACH. Nick not only is a douchebag but is going to look like one on GMA tomorrow with that jerseyboy BUZZ CUT. lolol

        YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE THIS STATEMENT?COME ON….NOBODY PAYS TO RECORD A CD AND PLAN A TOUR AND THEN BAILS LAST MINUTE….THIS WILL BE A POLITICALLY CORRECT STATEMENT TO SAVE FACE…SOMETHING ELSE HAPPENED.

        • ejt3

          everyone said Nick and Joe fell out. The first time those two will be seen together in weeks will be tomorrow. I think Joe probably is heartbroken about it ending or Nick needing more time. Kev does nothave time for drama. He is going to have a baby in 3 months.

          • anon

            LOL what? Aside from the first few days when everyone was accusing him of being on drugs, Joe has been looking pretty damn content lately. I don’t think he’s broken up over this at all tbh.

  • theyllbeback

    This was going to happen eventually with Nick. I mean it was his project first. He’s always wanted to be strictly a solo artist, but I guess he felt obligated to the other boys. Nick’s last solo project was #3 on Billboard and sold 82,000 copies that is as much as Ariana Grande has sold with her album and it did not have any promotion. Miley’s new record sold 242,000 (which is a hit nowadays). It’s been a little over a year since they said they were getting back together. It proved to be too much especially with the baby on the way. Also, Nick was writing most of the songs and producing the album anyways. I just hope they can still have Thanksgiving together this year because Joe and Nick still have not been seen together and they are the best of friends. Kevin has been seen with both. They will be back though. It just was not long enough both Hanson and BSB took off 5 years. They only took off 2.

    • anon

      You do realize they didnt want Nick solo? The whole reason they signed Nick was because he brought his brothers. Nick’s two solo albums flopped and the one with administration was released at the height of their fame. lol

      I wont even mention the fact that they only wanted Joe for Camp Rock but I guess I did.

      • dani

        you are wrong, Nick decided to signed with his brothers, but it’s dumb to talk about that now because they’re all different people than they were back then.

        • anon

          No the producers wanted Nick only with his brothers. It’s relevant! He should never forget that without his brothers he would working at Mcdonalds.

          • anon

            LOL you are aware that Nick had a pretty successful career as a child star on Broadway long before his brothers became part of the picture, right? Nick was working and earning way more than Joe and Kevin combined up until he decided to leave Broadway.

        • pily

          Actually she is right the producers didn’t want to sign nick but when he make a performance with kev and joe they gave them an oportuty. I think they don’t work as solo artist but they are really goood As a band

        • pily

          And well, disney didn’t want nick or kevin for camp rock they actually make auditions and joe didn’t

      • theyllbeback

        Nick was way toooooooooo young for what they wanted for camp rock. The boys that star in those movies are always at least 17 to look more manly. Also, he had a christian contract was never terminated. Also, most first cds flop if you have no name recognition. Columbia was offering a better career with only his brothers. Actually, the height of their fame was 2008. He released this in 2010. Also, he had no promotion. They are still “die hard” fans that did not know he had a “side” project. Joe’s was promoted like crazy and failed miserably. Also, Nick is the one with movie deals, 2 rumored recording contracts on the table, etc. Not Joe. Also, just because someone is serious and distant does not make him a douche. I love all boys equally but facts are facts.

        • anon

          They peaked in 2008 yes but they were still very famous when Nick released his solo album and were still with Disney. Disney even showed his video.

          • anon

            Also the general media (even though they’re all fading) has always mostly cared about Joe.

          • alkkr

            because he does crazy things to get attention and dated Taylor Swift… Nick on the other hand is more respected by his peers as an artist

          • anon

            To be fair #diabeticsinshape is trying to get attention and Taylor wasnt even that famous when she dated Joe. She got super famous after Joe and then Kanye.

          • kdely

            nick dated miley cyrus and selena gomez…..selena also shoed up at shows…..thats not crazy? OK

          • Pace

            to (most) children who don’t listen to or understand his genre of music…. it would have been way better promoted to alternative outlets because it was an alternative sound— they did not do that and only sent him on like 5 tv shows and only had a very short (SOLD OUT) tour- Joe was EVERYWHERE— Also, Joe’s was more mainstream so it should’ve had mainstream sales

      • ashleyofcourse

        lmaooo but i guess i did…

    • RegReach

      no arriana has already out sot sold him and debuted bigger

    • ashleyofcourse

      actually they might be back together sooner than that. when the jonas babe is born, theyll have to be in the same room. and there better not be a fight with a baby in the room, God forbid.

  • Dani

    Are you stupid? Nick is the one doing everything, he is the hardest working and he is in charge of everything, it’s too much pressure for someone that young, of course it was gonna get to him eventually, he is strong but he is made of stone, it was too much for him, writing, singing, producing, preparing the show, imagine someone that young being in charge of 10 people way older than him, with great power comes great responsibility, they guy was stressed of course he feels trapped, he didn’t mean trapped bc of his brothers he meant trapped bc of the situation, bc of the responsibility.

    • anon

      Hey Nick was the one that decided to produce the album, if it was too much responsibility maybe he should have gotten an actual producer and left his ego at the door.

      • rejrkw

        Yes, this may be true, but he even said that he is a perfectionist ad prideful (he said those are his biggest flaws). Remember, this guy is a work-a-holic. He was starring on Broadway, going through a breakup, guest starring on 4 shows, producing and recording a Jonas Records, as well as helping Ariana Grande, Zenedaya, and greyson chance on their music all in 2012 at the same time. He said that he took on too much well it seems he has done that again. However, as much as I love them, Joe and Kev are no help. Kev helps on the business sides of things but mostly focuses on Dani. Joe has been vacationing all year. And, the boys said they gave their dad less responsiblity so he could focus on being a dad with them and frankie and his other businesses because “they could do it themselves”

  • in jesus name i pray amen

    It’s About Time. (no pun intended, but how punny)

  • Anon

    I call bullshit. Although I’m sure Nick felt trapped. Who wouldn’t when you’re the only one in the band working hard on the music. Kevin’s worried about his wife and baby, which is understandable. But this entire year Joe has put B and promoting her and her shitty career first. Who would want to deal with staying in a band that only cares about their personal lives when they supposedly made a commitment to the band?? And the fans blaming the girlfriends, just think logically for a moment…For the past year Blanda has done nothing but ruin the Jonas name and begging for attention constantly, so yes a put partial blame one her. But Olivia?? She’s only been around for about 4 months and most if that time she’s been out of the country, so putting blame on her it just stupid. All 3 of the boys are to blame for letting things get to this point.

    • anon

      Nick never felt trapped before Olivia came along. He was pumped about the album, tweeting lyrics to it on his twitter etc. After she came along Nick started to pull away.

      So yes I am putting partial blame on her.

      • Anon

        That could a possibility too. My main point was people putting all the blame on Nick when he’s been the most involved. Where as Joe was missing some days of tour rehearsals all year cause he was out of the country galavanting with Blanda.

        • kdely

          i’m not trying to be mean with this but maybe nick was a little too involved yes i get its his personality but he had every chance to chill out before going back to it all

      • ashleyofcourse

        LMFAO “so yes i am putting partial blame on her” x’D i love the way you guys comment i love OU
        anyhoo, its weird though. cause i mean i dont want to blame anyone since we still dont know whats up. but its still something to think about that the moment olivy pops up, all the scandals and PR and now break up happens. i mean that ish didnt even take place when blandie was around….so i do believe the girlfriends are in some part in this but i dont know for sure. none of us do.

    • parishiltonsbff

      “Blanda has done nothing but ruin the Jonas name and begging for attention.”

      how so because I think I missed it?

      • Anon

        I do believe he started ruining his own name during Fastlife but I also believe that Blanda has only made it worse and contributed to it immensely. And it’s not a Blanda hater thing, it’s an intelligent person who doesn’t believe the boys and their gfs do no wrong thing.

  • Anon

    I hope things get better, I’m hear to support Nick

  • GirlFromYourDreams

    :’-( Well it’s been fun guys. 8 years over. Wow. Ugh I don’t know why I’m crying right now. They were just supposed to be a band but I guess they became much much more to me. And I have to stare at their tour poster today for 6 hours at work. fml

    I just wish they would release the stupid album. It complete and they should do it so fans can have closure.

    Kerosene, Meet You In Paris, What Do I Mean To You, Wedding Bells. After waiting so long the fan should have studio versions.

    I wish them all the best.

    Nick has the performance bug in him. He might take a break for awhile but he’ll be back rocking the stage one way or another. I love NJ&A. He’s not going to retire at 21. No way. At least now we know why he shaved his head.

    Kevin I hope he has a beautiful life. I MTJ is renewed than I don’t know if I’m going to watch it. I’ll skip the next season. They’re going to have to talk about the split and there’s no use picking at a scab.

    Joe. I really hope he finds his place. His solo record was so perfect for the dance/club scene. If he enjoys that type of music he should make it! Once upon a time he really liked acting. I he still does hopefully we’ll see him on the stage or the screen!

    Well I guess it’s come to this. I’ll be a lifelong fan, individually or together. I’ll have front row tickets to their 30th and 50th reunion tour. Here’s to dreaming

    I’m (still) burnin’ up for you boys

  • anon

    I call BULLSHIT too….NO WAY a band records a CD, plans a tour, hires staff, rehearses which is all EXPENSIVE then decided 2 days before the tour to Cancel…most bands would have stuck it out through the tour and then disbanded…they are pro’s….NO WAY they are hiding something or it had too do with very poor ticket sales….

    • jwkjnw

      local news outlets interviewed a couple of venues.. they said they were making money…. other shows were sold out or almost sold out

  • anon

    Whatever though I’ll support all three in their solo careers. Even though I havent been happy with Nick’s arrogance lately.

  • GirlFromYourDreams

    OK HOLD ON. If this meeting took place October 3rd what about Joe’s tweet the same day stating “Don’t worry It’s part or a plan :-D”

    The meeting could of happened after the tweet but still…

    Nick has the same haircut now as then.

    Olivia Culpo is the new Yoko Ono.

    • Anon

      if you wanna call anyone Yoko Ono it would be Blanda, but Olivia could very well be a Yoko too.

      • anon

        If blanda was Yoko, the band would’ve broken up months ago. All these problems surfaced when Nick started dating Olivia. Before her, he was excited about the album and tour.

        • Anon

          Actually if you paid more attention you’d know that problems started to surface at the end or last year. But I’m not here to argue with anyone, just stating my opinion and what I’ve noticed over the past year.

          • anon

            What problems? No one knew this was happening until they announced it. Up until Nick started dating Olivia they WHOLE band all three guys were pumped about the tour. Even though Joe was always around with Blanda he showed up for shows and appearances. That never changed.

          • anon

            I think the problems started during the SA tour.

          • Anon

            I agree, you could see tension then. And Joe was never with his brothers in SA unless it was press or a concert.

          • Anon

            he showed up because he had no choice. And Joe hasn’t been pumped about anything Jonas related since their comeback show last year and he became so disconnected with the fans.

          • anon

            It was only a few months ago when the boys were doing press that they were saying “we’re brothers we can’t break up” and they were making their big come back. I don’t know how you could “see” this was happening a year ago

    • Vanesa

      *HIGH FIVE*

  • PerrieEdwards

    Why couldnt they at least have completed the tour. The last tour. Why ouldn’t they just release the finished album? It was so damn close! For 4 years they left and did solo projects… Why didn’t they just continue like that? Why did they have to give our hopes up and tell us that they were coming back. Ffs. I hate how much I love these guys.

    • GirlFromYourDreams

      I know It all seems like a slap in the face That girl that won the “First Time Contest” received a copy of “V” I think we should all find her and message her like crazy until she post the album on YouTube

      • PerrieEdwards

        What? She did?!! Did she win it, so she would get it before anyone else? or would she just get it when everyone else got it? We need to hunt this girl down! Or find those directioners who leaked 1D songs!!!

        • GirlFromYourDreams

          idk in the YouTube video Kevin says “Wauway phone and you get the new record. She gets a copy of the new album but nobody else does”

          • PerrieEdwards

            Well they can’t just say that she’ll get it, and then never give it to her. Urgh this is so frustrating. I can’t wait to hear what they’re gonna say on GMA.

          • GirlFromYourDreams

            True but I’m still going to try to find her. It doesn’t hurt to ask

    • lols

      It’s just so stupid what they did, I mean, ok they could have said: we decided to break up but we’re gonna do a LAST TOUR so we can say goodbye to our fans. THIS is real consideration with fans.

  • anon

    All Nick cares about is his dumb ass pageant queen girlfriend. He’ll have no career left. Bad move. I feel bad for Joe and Kevin. They both seemed very exxcited about the tour. Nick didn’t.

    “Joe wants to do acting and art and his own music”

    Art what does that mean? Like painting or? I bet it was Blanda’s influence.

    “Kevin wants to focus on being a dad,” the insider explains.

    This is so sad… I mean i cant even believe this…i hope they realease the album…i will miss them :(

  • anon

    Demi’s influence

    What strikes me much more than the hateful attacks, are young women who write to me that they feel ugly when they see a photo of me. I know the feeling of insecurity, as indeed every woman in our society. So I try to strengthen these young women in their self-esteem, as I write them, that about a campaign make-up, styling and PhotoShop includes, or that beauty of a huge portion of character evidence and based not only on external appearance.Sounds like clichés, but basically they are true.

    -Blanda

    • anon

      RME. I don’t dislike Blanda, but I can’t stand when pretty girls are always “Oh, it’s not about beauty it’s about who you are on the inside.”

      It’s very easy to say that WHEN YOU ARE PRETTY! But the fact of the matter remains, we are a very lookism based society and pretty people will always have advantages over less attractive ones. Like, does she think if she wasn’t pretty but still had a great character/personality that she could be dating Joe Jonas? She’d like to think so but let’s be honest no she wouldn’t. She might have kept him with her personality, but it was her looks that caused him to approach her in the first place.

      Same with Olivia. She might be the sweetest, kindest person on the planet, but I guarantee you if she was the sweetest, kindest person on the planet who also weighed 350lbs and had stringy hair and acne, Nick would not have asked her out.

      You are never going to change this fact until you change the media’s influence over what is attractive.

      • anon

        That’s true, but if you have a really great personality and are sexy in the way you carry yourself that beats any pretty girl or guy out there. You can always improve your looks with a hairstyle, exercise and taking care of your skin. And a good personality can make even the ugliest of folks appear attractive.

        • anon

          btw I once met a guy that I thought was not good looking at first before knowing him and then when I befriended him I started crushing on him hardcore because he was funny, flirty and fun. I crushed on him harder than any pretty boy at school.

      • ashleyofcourse

        forget nick, she wouldnt even have made it to miss rhode island.

  • ANON

    I don’t know why they’re doing this after everything we’ve (their fans) have done for them. Nothing has made them do this in the past. They’re brothers and need to work things out. Not give up! This is really disappointing.

  • shanghai

    Still more to this I think WHY cancel two days before a tour and with a new album. They have been in this business a long time now and should be professional enough to at least complete a tour and not disappoint fans. If I was to call it I would say Danielle was the deciding factor as they prepare to have a baby and she is not willing to travel and wants to settle in one place. The guys took that break too early when they were at the top and that is an opportunity that few artists ever get and most never get it back. Sad day.

  • truthdare

    I keep asking myself, maybe their popularity REALLY was in a critical moment. I mean, POMPOMS was a flop, wasn’t it? Even their fans didn’t like it. Idk how much they managed to sell in this tour, but still, I think they should’ve continued at least the tour to say goodbye to their fans, instead of just cancelling everything.

    Plus, so many people were hating on them because of Blanda and Joe’s behavior, because of drugs rumor, so basically their image of christians was gone. Even fans were sick of them… No wonder why they had to break up. People shouldn’t be THAT surprised.

  • WickedlyMiserable

    I am so mad and disappointed with them. I’ve been a fan for 7 years none stop. As I grow up I’ve keep living my live and meeting new people but I can assure you the every single day I use my computer I dedicate 5 minute to know what they have done in the days. I alway knew this moment would come but what actually make me mad is the fact that they make us wait 4 years for nothing, they could’ve have ended 4 years ago not now after we literally wait without music for them to came with a new album and the fact that they wait more than 2 weeks to come straight with us after the rumours started, make me even more disappointed. I promised I would never give up on them, THEY give up, so now I MOVE ON. They would never receive a single dollar out of my pocket in their individual careers because I love them as a group, as a band, not as individuals thinking only in their success and making money on their own without even thank us after all give have gave to them.

  • SweetSweetLife

    Nick is sexy, but he’s an ass. Truth is the album wasn’t going to sell and their fans don’t care about them anymore. They will do the GMA interview tomorrow and then JB DUNZO! Nick & Joe will get married to their sluts and Kevin & Dani will pop out a bunch of kids!

    • Amanda

      I care about them and I loved the new album. I went to see them this summer (thank God) and absolutely LOVED their new music.

  • BrainFlower

    I used to be a die-hard Jonas fan, since they started until they told about going on hiatus. I waited as much as any Jonas fan did but then I realized or felt that they were never coming back. One year became two and three and so on. I was just tired of waiting for something that might not happen, I felt that they were focused on their personal lifes rather than their careers as musicians. It was hard to let them go since I was there from day-1, I only talked about them, I only saw them, they were everything in my life but I started to open up for new things. It’s just sad that this ended and how it ended since fans were always there for them but it seems they never were here for the fans, if they did, at least, THEY should have told everyone in a official statement explaining all, and clarifying all this mess they did themselves. I thank them for all they did while they were active and all the friends I made through them.

  • Amanda

    I have never crushed on any celebrity like i have with the Jonas Brothers. This is absolutely heartbreaking, and it’s so terribly sad to see them go out this way. I always had so much respect for them and was sooooo proud to be a Jonas fan, and now this? I honestly feel like I’m getting slapped in the face for supporting them, and i also feel like a super big idiot for believing in them so much and for cherishing them so deeply. By going out this way they are doing an injustice to themselves and to all the fans that care about them. This is truly unfair, hurtful and embarrassing!

    • lalalal

      couldn’t of said it better girl

  • JJ456

    I knew it was all Nick’s fault, lol. I think it is for the best, you could clearly see their hearts were not into it the last few months. I dislike that now they are going on a “break up media tour”- it just smells of self promotion instead of really caring about the fans. Anyway, I’d follow Joe in whatever he does in the future (even if it is just walking, lol)

  • kdely

    sucks that not one of them has a degree….they’re gonna run out of money sometime…their fame will fade quickly

  • pily

    So…basically i wait 4 YEARS for them to breakup…i mean this is not even fair!! At least they should have breakup 4 years ago! This is really stupid and mean…i hope they have a really good excuse tomorrow! This is not fair for the fans

  • ally

    i think im 100% done with them
    and thats sad i have been a fan forever and then this happens :/

  • KRP

    I agree with the people saying they should at the least release the album. I mean its only fair. But honestly I think they will have better careers separately. Kevin has said that he’s wanted to go to college and study education and he could do that now. Joe is actually a really good photographer,I think thats what was meant by the “art” comment. Nick has been in this business long before his brothers and has proven he’s talented in all facets of the industry (except dance). But even if he doesn’t continue with music,he’s really intelligent all of them are and with some college education could be really successful beyond the music industry. On a personal note I am looking forward to their individual projects,I really liked Nick’s solos project, more music like that needs to be on the Radio. Still I am sad they are going their separate ways after working so hard these las few years. Ultimately though they are brothers and whatever “rift” has surfaced in their family needs to be addressed. Family before career.

  • UGH!

    wow, going out in true “new jb” style……being famewhores.

    cant even have the decency to be straight up with fans about it.
    how do they announce this decision? in a paid interview for a tabloid.

    NICE jb.

    what (VERY few) fans you had left, i’m sure won’t be around when a “reunion” gimmick tour or album comes along in a few years….

    • Ann

      well in all fairness, Papa and Mama J aren’t gonna be earning as much $$$$$ off of whoring their kids out as they would have had they stuck to the concert tour and album release and all!
