A "deep rift" between the Jonas Brothers?! It seems that way.
E! News confirmed that the boy band has decided to cancel their upcoming tour two days before it was set to begin due to "a deep rift within the band," their rep tells us. "There was a big disagreement over their music direction."
The idea that the trio are fighting may come as a shock to many fans, but there might have been some overlooked signs that trouble was brewing between Nick, Joe and Kevin recently.
E! News spoke to Nick Jonas during their charity soccer game at L.A. Galaxy in August, and although the youngest Jonas brother didn't hint at any conflict with the family, he did reveal that there are personal goals he's striving to accomplish in the near future.
"I think for me, there is still a lot of what I want to do. I see producing music for other people as a part of my future, so prioritizing that is important to me, and doing great things with my brothers."
However, fast forward a couple months and the tension seemed to grow.
During an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Sunday, Joe Jonas had this to say about the band getting back together.
"There are days that are tough. You try to relive what what we used to be, but you have to remind yourself that it's a different music. It's a different vibe. We are our own bosses these days and have to build our own relationships and businesses and continue to craft our sound, and not just be a band that plays to a certain market."
The Jonas Brothers showed a united front on stage for their performance at We Day Minnesota yesterday, but it seems their backstage presence was a different story. A source tells E! News that Joe ended up having dinner with his dad Paul Kevin Jonas Jr. last night. Nick and Kevin had dinner separately.
Our backstage source tells us, "You could tell something was not right between them. They didn't have the same energy they normally have."
Regardless, another source tells E! News that this is 100 percent about the music. "They are brothers and that will never change. This isn't about personal issues. The guys recorded a lot of music and there was broad disagreement within the group about what direction to take with the music."
