Kevin Jonas Finally Reveals What Really Broke Up The Jonas Brothers

One word: 'friction.'

Blood is thicker than water. But sometimes your siblings can be sooo annoying that you just have to put some water between you before some actual red stuff gets spilled.

It doesn't sound like things got that heated before the Jonas Brothers called it quits back in 2013, but to hear Kevin Jonas explain it, the tension about which direction to go in with their sound was just a bit too much to handle.

"Being able to play shows and travel together was great, but then once at the end there, the friction was too much and we just really needed to break away and kind of do our own things for some time," oldest JoBro Kevin told HuffpostLive. Things are all good now between Kevin -- who's entertaining a new tech career focused on apps -- Nick and Joe. "I think that’s why we’re close now, because we’re not in the band," he said, before jokingly responding to fellow guest Gilbert Gottfried's joke that "so much drugs" broke up the Jonas Brothers. (Note: That's a joke.)

"By not being in the band together... that constant butting of heads of working together and being family. We chose to be a family, not a band," said Kevin, who was just booted from the latest edition of "Celebrity Apprentice."
