Nick Jonas told PEOPLE that when the breakup moment came he went ‘into a bit of trance. You prep a million ways.’ Once he admitted to his brothers how he felt, he wasn’t sure the band could continue as it was. ‘There was sort of a shut-off that happened. It took some time, about 24 hours or so, before we could really talk about it.
Joe: ‘Kevin and I thought we were going into a meeting about releasing some of the music we’d been working on.’ Instead, Nick told them he was considering quitting. Joe says he didn’t say much at first, but Kevin and Nick talked late into the night. By the next morning, they were crying. Nick: ‘There were tears and yelling from everybody.’ Kevin: ‘It was the most real, the most intense conversation that we’ve had in our lives together.
Prioritizing our family is really important to us. We’re choosing our family because it was becoming toxic.’ His relationship with his brothers was suffering, in part, because his focus was elsewhere.: ‘I wasn’t contributing to the music the way I should have.’ Kevin is more interested in shopping with Danielle.
