Rumors popped up online earlier this month that Nick Jonas was working on a solo album apart from his famous family act, the [artist id="2088128"]Jonas Brothers[/artist]. All was hush-hush about the side project — until Nick's mom spilled the beans.
"Nick is working on a solo act — it's called Nick Jonas and the Administration," Denise Jonas told Parade.com. "Shhh! He's at the photo shoot for the album cover right now."
The rumor started when E! News' Ken Baker tweeted that he had heard from inside sources Nick was busy working on his own music, according to SawfNews.com. Baker has since removed two of the tweets, leaving only the one that said the JoBros were not breaking up.
"A source tells me: Nick Jonas secretly working on solo album. May tour alone in 2010. Will you see him?" he wrote. "This time 4 real. They deny it, but it's in the works. JB is not ending or even breaking. Just a side project between JB albums."
This isn't the first time Nick has talked about doing his own thing without Kevin and Joe. Over the summer, he told MTV News he'd like to attend college when he has more free time on his hands.
"I did go see the college, just to go check it out," he said of Northwestern University, just outside Chicago. "I've always been interested in going to school in Chicago. I love Chicago. It's one of my favorite cities. And it was great just to see it. And that's where it's at right now." He added that "it'll be a while before I end up going anyway, because we're obviously very busy."
In the Parade.com interview, Mama Jonas also dished about Kevin's impending wedding to Danielle Deleasa, noting she approves of her son's choice. "Kevin and his fiancée Danielle have set their wedding date — but it's completely private," she said. "Danielle, bless her heart, is from a great little Italian family. She is everything I ever prayed for and hoped for Kevin."
