It's a sad day in Teenybop Land. After weeks of speculation, the Jonas Brothers have confirmed their split to People in an article dated Tuesday, October 29. The news comes three weeks after they canceled their tour due to a "deep rift within the band," and a "big disagreement over their music direction." On October 17, their group Twitter was shut down, but Nick and Joe continued to tweet on their own accounts, though no hints of the split were given.
While fans are hoping that the break up is only temporary, it sounds as though the boy band most likely won't be quick to reunite.
"It's over for now," Kevin Jonas said.
"It's really hard to say 'forever,' " said Nick. "We're closing a chapter, for sure."
"It was a unanimous decision," added Joe.
Apparently the event that ultimately led to the group going their separate ways was a band meeting that took place on Oct. 3. Nick Jonas expressed to his brothers that he had "serious concerns about the future of the band."
"I was feeling kind of trapped," he said. "I needed to share my heart with my brothers."
The American Pop Rock band which was formed in 2005 gained their popularity from Disney Channel. Together, they topped the charts, toured the world, and became teenage heartthrobs and role models.
At this point, it is unclear if they have individual projects lined up. We have yet to learn of what the trio's future plans might be.
Do you think the Jonas Brothers split is permanent?
