Jonas Brothers reportedly planning reunion six years after split
Rumors are swirling that the Jonas Brothers are plotting a reunion six years after they called it quits.
Nick Jonas, 26, Joe Jonas, 29 and Kevin Jonas, 31, are said to have secretly met in London last week to plan the release of new music alongside a documentary about the reunion, according to The Sun.
“This is going to be one of the biggest music reunions in years,” a source told the UK paper. “It’s no secret that things weren’t great by the end of the Jonas Brothers, but blood is thicker than water and they’ve healed their rift in the years since the split.”
And speculation only grew more intense on Tuesday after fans discovered that the band’s Instagram account had been reactivated.
The “Love Bug” group skyrocketed to fame in 2005. Three years later, they starred in the Disney Channel movie “Camp Rock” and won the award for breakthrough artist at the American Music Awards and were nominated for Best New Artist at the 51st Grammy Awards in 2009.
The band broke up for the first time in 2010, with each brother choosing to pursue different ventures like family life, solo albums and stints on Broadway. But in 2012, the Jonas Brothers announced their reunion and held a concert together at Radio City Music Hall.
However, the group canceled their highly anticipated 2013 comeback tour two days before it was scheduled to start, due to a “deep rift within the band” over “creative differences,” according to People. They announced their official split three weeks later and scratched a planned album.
After their split, Nick — who recently wed actress Priyanka Chopra — released two solo albums and appeared in “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” Joe — who is engaged to “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner — reclaimed the spotlight as lead singer of DNCE, while Kevin focused on his family and was featured on the final season of Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice.”
“After enjoying solo music success and taking time to work on passion projects, they feel that now is the right time to get back together,” a source told The Sun.
A rep for the band did not return a request for comment.
