The American boyband, Jonas Brothers, is not only making headlines because of their music and acting efforts. Recent controversies involving Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas have caused Disney to lose some money to cover up bad publicity swirling around. From the buzz-making Jonas Brothers shirtless pictures to controversial dating rumors left and right, the teen group act has been receiving a lot of jabs from the media, paparazzi and currently, some disappointed fans.
The rumors were said to have been caused by the brothers’ various relationships with famous young stars in Hollywood. With the exception of the oldest sibling, Kevin, the rest of the Jonas Brothers have caused a stir because of highly publicized dates and affairs.
Joe Jonas’ highly sensationalized break up with country singer, Taylor Swift, caused a major buzz in Hollywood. To compound matters, Swift has been very vocal about her feelings towards the split. Swift said that the break up was sudden and only happened through a phone call. Joe, according to her, was the one who made the ‘break up’ call that only lasted for 27 seconds.
“When I look at that person, I’m not even going to remember the boy who broke up with me over the phone in 27 seconds when I was 18,” said Taylor in a talk show interview.
In response, Joe refuted the claims of his ex-girlfriend and said that the phone call only lasted as it did because Taylor wasn’t open to hear his side. He also denied other allegations that he cheated on Swift with 10,000 BC actress, Camilla Belle. Although Camilla and he are already dating, he insisted that he never cheated on any girlfriend.
Nick Jonas has also been the target of tabloids because of his relationship with Hannah Montana star, Miley Cyrus. The two apparently broke up because of Nick’s new fling, Selena Gomez, another Disney star. Selena starred in the Jonas Brothers’ music video, Burnin’ Up as the singer’s love interest. The incident caused the two teen actresses to cause cat fight rumors and the Youtube war between Miley and Selena also emerged because of Nick.
Despite these, the Jonas Brothers is taking the rumors in stride. They also have the support of Disney and their record label. However, Disney did some reprimanding to the siblings to avoid further damage on their squeaky clean image especially when there some jarring Jonas Brothers shirtless photos spread all over the internet. In some reports, it was said that Disney is alarmed with the issues that have been surfacing about their sweet, clean, and dandy young stars like Hannah Montana, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and just recently, the Jonas Brothers.
