The Jonas Brothers are not feeling very brotherly these days.
The trio has canceled a planned 19-date U.S. tour that was slated to start on Friday (October 11) in Upper Darby, Pa., with a spokesman Jesse Derris telling “People” magazine that it's due to "creative differences...There is a deep rift within the band. There was a big disagreement over their music direction."
Derris also denied rumors that the cancellation is because oldest brother Kevin Jonas and his wife Danielle are expecting a child.
The future of the group, which has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide, "remains to be seen," according to Derris.
The Jonases released a couple of new singles this year, including "Pom Poms" and "First Time," and have been on the road since last fall.
A new album, "V," was in progress, but it's uncertain what will happen to that. Earlier this year Kevin Jonas told us that making the album has been a bit difficult and even had to stop at one point in order for the trio to regain its bearings:
"I think it just meant where our heads were at, our focus, what we were thinking...It made a difference because we were able to say, 'OK, yeah this isn't right for us yet' and that was fine. Now it changed to a sense of, 'Alright, this will definitely be the benefit' and all of that stuff, so I'm really looking forward to all of those moments for people to hear, 'cause it really is, it's a special album. We poured our heart and soul into it, and I can't wait for people to hear it."
Kevin Jonas and his wife started a reality show called "Married to Jonas" last year but have not yet committed to a new season.
