On October 9, the band’s spokesperson canceled their 19-date fall tour, saying that “There is a deep rift within the band. There was a big a disagreement over their music direction.” That’s a pretty direct way of letting fans know that the brothers aren’t getting along so great. Last night, they took another decisive step towards disbanding when they deleted the Twitter account for the band. Each brother maintains his own feed (@kevinjonas, @joejonas, @nickjonas).
Even stranger, Joe Jonas was spotted out with a sober coach yesterday. The founder and CEO of Cast Recovery in Santa Monica, CA, Mike Bayer is a pretty recognizable figure because he was also employed by Joe’s ex, Demi Lovato, while she had her own struggles with mental illness and addiction. If Joe is dealing with addiction, he hasn’t made any moves to discuss it publicly at this time.
What do you think is going on with the Jonas Brothers? Why do you think they’re fighting so much? Do you think Joe could be struggling with addiction? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
