Breaking News! Rumor has it that the Jonas Brothers are getting back together and might likely go on tour.
The last time the trio was officially together was about six years ago, and since then they have launched their solo career.
The Sun's statement confirms the rumor of their reunion: "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."
Reports also say that they might be changing their name to Jonas instead of Jonas Brothers. So Kevin, Joe, and Nick might reunite! Here are some juicy facts about their lives.
The Original Band Name Was Not To Their Liking
Before the trio settled for the name Jonas Brothers, they were originally called J3.
Joe told Vulture,“ We hated the name... I remember turning to my brothers before that show and saying, 'Do you want our name to be J3 for the rest of our lives?'”
He further said that at one of their shows when they got on stage, he introduced the band with the words: “Hey, we’re the Jonas Brothers.”
We are glad the name stuck.
Their Experience With Disney
Thanks to Disney, the brothers were a such a huge teen sensation and had a clean image, but they confessed that the pressure was insane.
Joe told Vulture: “We didn't want to disappoint anyone...our parents, our fans, our employers...so we put incredible pressure on ourselves, the kind of pressure that no teenager should be under.”
Joe also said that the record company always made them change their lyrics if they were in anyway provocative.
The Grew Up In A Religious Household
Once upon a time, the Jonas Brothers wore purity rings, but in the long run that became an old gist.
Their mother Denise told Good Housekeeping that she and their father met in church.
Also, Nick's first solo album was quite religious, and the leading track is titled "Dear God."
They Left The Church After A Theft Incidence
The Jonas family left the church after an incidence of stolen money occurred.
Joe told Vulture: "We eventually left our church, Assembly of God, when I was 14. An issue had erupted including stolen money, and it caused a big rift in the church. After that, the concept of the church really upset me for a long time…”
The issue didn’t actually have anything to do with their family, but it affected the way they viewed the church.
Joe’s Purity Vow

Well, things got really awkward when the duo went on a date in Central Park.
On BBC radio 1 Nick said: “She was unhappy that her Central Park experience was ruined by the fact that I walked about 20 feet away from her…”
It seemed that was probably Selena’s first time at the park, and Nick did a terrible job.
The Show JONAS
Their show was conceived based on a completely different idea; they were supposed to be teen secret agents,
The title "J.O.N.A.S." was for "Junior Operatives Networking As Spies.”
