Hollywood Nation: One of the biggest boy bands of all time, Nick, Joe and Kevin abruptly canceled their tour and deleted the group and a Twitter account in October 2013.

The Jonas Brothers have opened up about their sudden break-up years ago and the behavior under the famous brotherly trio, the cause of the boy band to split.

The brothers, Kevin, 31, Joe, 29, and Nick, 26 — reunited earlier this year after a six years ago, and spawned the hit single “Loser.” The group said they disbanded in 2013 after they were seemingly at a breaking point in their relationship with each other.


“We all wanted to create something on our own and were just trying to force, in what was going on,” Joe told Billboard in an article published Thursday. “We went through the motions without the heart.”

The second-oldest child, added: “The way we communicated with each other was not healthy anymore.” In 2016, Joe told Vanity Fair he was seeing a therapist and he “was not on speaking terms with my brothers.”

Joe added it was Nick who brought the idea of a split to “focus on other things, like acting and doing music on his own.”

And each of the brothers venture out on their own: Kevin founded his own real estate, construction company, Jonas/Werner Custom Homes, and started a family with his wife, Danielle; Joe created popular pop-rock group DNCE, a separate band entirely, and became engaged to a “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner; and Nick started a solo career in which he has three studio albums and an EP, and married former “Quantico” star and Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra.

But Nick, the “Jealous” singer, who previously revealed he initiated the split, told Billboard the band is excited for the ‘second round’ of the Jonas Brothers.


“It feels like a second bite of the apple is possibly going to be even bigger, because we are in a healthy place, we enjoy the ride,” he told the news outlet. “And I think the music is a reflection of that.”

The Jonas Brothers are set to make a new studio album, “Happiness Begins”, on 7 June, and said that they plan to tour later this year.
