The Jonas Brothers call it quits

The signs have been out there ever since the Jonas Brothers canceled their concert tour merely days before it was scheduled to kick off.

Now it’s all over.

The trio of siblings announced Tuesday they had come to “a unanimous decision” — and “it’s over for now,” after eight years as one of the most popular groups on the planet.

The breakup reportedly has been coming for some time as Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas began going in different directions — musically. “With them wanting to make different kinds of music, and not being able to compromise about their ‘sound,’ it began to gnaw away at their personal relationship,” said a longtime Jonas insider.

“This breakup just finally became unavoidable.”

†Not surprisingly, the world of social media — especially Twitter — blew up with an avalanche of comments. Most mirrored @babyDEMlkens who tweeted, “My heart is shattered into millions of pieces. The Jonas Brothers were already a part of me. Why did this have to happen? :(“
