The Jonas Brothers announce breakup

The Jonas Brothers have split up, it has been confirmed.

Nick, 21, Joe, 24, and Kevin, 25, announced they're ending their highly successful run. The news comes after the brothers abruptly canceled their tour over creative differences earlier this month.

The breakup was first reported by People magazine. Publicist Jesse Derris confirmed the news and said no other details were available.

The brothers told People the breakup was unanimous and came after Nick Jonas told his brothers in a meeting earlier this month that he felt "trapped."

The brothers had already sparked speculation they were splitting after they deleted their shared Twitter account earlier this month. Nick and Joe then took to Twitter to ask fans to "bear with us".

The New Jersey brothers formed the band in 2005 and built a fan base through their association with the Disney Channel.

The band had been scheduled to release its fifth album later this year.
