Kevin Jonas Opens Up About Jonas Brothers Breakup
Kevin Jonas spoke candidly about the reasons the Jonas Brothers split up in 2013.
In an upcoming appearance on Oprah: Where Are They Now?, the 28-year-old admitted (via People) , “I think we had a different connection just because we were brothers. When we were on the road or at home, we were still together, and I think that made us stronger. But at the same time, I think that’s what pulled it apart, which I think is inevitable when you’re working with your family for so long.”
The eldest Jonas said they all knew it was time to break up. “It was just time. Like it or not, it was time for us to no longer be making music like that together and focus on our individuality.”
Both Nick and Joe have continued their musical careers, with Nick’s solo efforts and Joe forming the band DNCE, while Kevin has retreated to family life in the New Jersey suburbs with wife, Danielle, their daughter, Alena, 2 – and another baby on the way.
Kevin says the JoBros are “stronger” now. “For a long time, we were doing individual things [and] talking rarely. Now our relationship is much stronger.” And we can exhale.
