The Jonas Brothers confirm split

The Jonas Brothers have confirmed they are splitting up after weeks of speculation about the future of the band.

Rumors the brothers were preparing to go their separate ways were sparked when they axed their tour earlier this month (Oct13), with the musicians allegedly disagreeing about the future of the band.

The sibling group has now confirmed the split, with Kevin Jonas telling People.com, "It's over for now."

Nick Jonas adds, "It's really hard to say 'forever'... We're closing a chapter, for sure," and third brother, Joe Jonas, says, "It was a unanimous decision."

Nick, Kevin and Joe were signed as a trio by Columbia Records in 2005 and found fame with Disney movie Camp Rock in 2008, going on to win the Breakthrough Artist award at the American Music Awards the same year.

They have released four albums with a fifth, titled V, scheduled for release sometime this year (13). It is not clear if the record's release will still go ahead.
