The Jonas Brothers have canceled their upcoming tour over creative differences.
Brothers Joe, Kevin and Nick Jonas were scheduled to begin their 19-date tour Friday in Upper Darby, Pa. Spokesman Jesse Derris confirmed the cancellation and said fans can get a refund at the point of purchase.
They had been scheduled to release their first album since 2009 soon, but the future of that project is unclear.
There is a deep rift within the band, Derris told People.
People magazine first reported the cancellation.
Fight over Kasem
The three adult children of radio host Casey Kasem have filed a legal petition to gain control of his health care.
The filing says Kasem is suffering from advanced Parkinson’s disease and is being isolated by his wife.
The petition for conservatorship filed Monday brought a long-running family feud into the courts. The applicants, Julie, Kerri and Mike Kasem, contend that Kasem’s wife, Jean, refuses to tell them the name of their father’s primary-care physician and they are unable to check on his condition.
Julie Kasem, who has a master’s degree in medicine, and her husband, Dr. Jamil Aboulhosn, presented papers signed by her father in 2007 giving them power of attorney over his health care.
