In the News: Joe Jonas-Addicted to Heroin?
After the Jonas Brothers cancelled their world comeback tour, celeb gossip websites are reporting that the cause may be Joe’s escalating drug use.
The Jonas Brothers have been extremely busy with promotion the last few months, and everything was in service of their ‘comeback’. Their comeback tour, their comeback album – it was supposed to be massive, and prove to audiences that they were still a global brand that could sell tickets and incite a mass frenzy wherever they went.
Jonas Brothers fans were shocked and bummed when they cancelled their tour, citing a “deep rift within the band.”
Rumors of a possible drug problem were sparked on Thursday when Joe Jonas was photographed with Mike Bayer, a well-known addiction coach that also helped Demi Lovato stay clean a few years ago after her infamous dancer punching breakdown on tour with the Jonas Brothers in 2010.
According to Blind Gossip, Joe has dabbled with heroin in the past but became, “fully addicted after dating Blanda Eggenshwiler, a Swiss illustrator and heroin addict.”
According to the site, the comeback tour was cancelled after Joe “drank and drugged his way through” an international tour earlier this year, and continued to struggle with addiction.
Celeb Dirty Laundry is also reporting that the Jonas family has been less than helpful to Joe Jonas. They say the family is afraid that if Joe goes to rehab, it will “shatter their carefully built façade as a wholesome family, and ruin any chances of profiting off of their dying brand.”
Will this be the end of the Jonas Brothers? Will Joe get the help he needs?
