Jonas Brothers split up –‘for now’, says representative

The Jonas Brothers, the pop-rock band who formed in 2005 and soared to fame as members of Disney’s stable of teenage stars, have decided to call it quits for now, a band representative said. The decision by the brothers Kevin, Joe and Nick came less than three weeks after they cancelled their concert tour, citing a rift in the band. They told People magazine it was a unanimous decision. “We can confirm the news,” a representative for the band said in an email. Kevin, 25, the group’s oldest member who is expecting his first child with his wife, said it was over for now. The announcement followed a meeting on October 3, when Nick told his brothers about his concerns about the group’s future. – Reuters
