The Jonas Brothers used pro-everybody mouthpiece PEOPLE to air their dirty laundry about how much they hated each other and that was the reason they cancelled their tour two days before it was supposed to start. However, now, sources are talking and claim the real reason for the conflict is Joe Jonas’ alleged heroin addiction.
This is in the new issue of Star, which, incidentally, doesn’t mention the word “heroin.” However, according to Blind Gossip, Joe has used heroin in the past. Which developed into addiction after he started dating illustrator Blanda Eggenschwiler (pictured above).
This is the same Blanda from the explicit tape that was allegedly floating around a few months ago of the couple doing the nasty while doing drugs. According to other sources, his addiction is really bad but his family is so desperate to keep this out of the headlines they won’t even let him enter rehab.
That probably would have worked, if TMZ.com hadn’t gotten photos of Joe in Los Angeles with addiction specialist and interventionist Mike Bayer, founder of CAST Recovery Services, who previously worked with Demi Lovato.
Star contradicts earlier reports a little, though, claiming, “He’s been dealing with substance abuse issues for quite some time. [His team] have been begging him to seek help… The tour would have never survived with how Joe was behaving.”
The 24-year-old’s rep denied the story, saying “There is no truth or validity to the story. It is completely false.”
However, Star’s source adds, if his team had addressed this mess when the tape rumours leaked this could have been avoided.
“At this point, Nick and Kevin don’t care what is going on with the band, they just want to see their brother healthy,” Star’s source added. “They’ve had discussions with Joe about their fears for him and the importance of getting help… Everyone is rooting for Joe to get healthy.”
