Yes, The Jonas Brothers have split.
The group made that official yesterday and then appeared as a united front today on Good Morning America, with each sibling explaining his side and all agreeing it was simply time to move on.
But, no, Joe Jonas insists: the band did not break up because of his substance abuse problem.
"It's ridiculous!" Joe tells People of talk that he's hooked on hardcore drugs, adding sarcastically: "We're not saying anything for two or three weeks and I'm a drug addict!"
Talk of Joe making like Lamar Odom surfaced earlier this month after he was photographed in Los Angeles with a sober coach.
Moreover, and most irritating, girlfriend Blanda Eggenschwiler was also dragged into the chatter.
"It's obviously not true. I've never touched heroin in my life. Neither has my girlfriend," Jonas says. "It's hilarious to me, but also frustrating as well. It pissed me off when it's about my girl and even about myself."
Joe says he "needed time to clear my head" and that's why he didn't shoot down this rumor the instant it sprang up.
But he has done so now, his brothers have made their break-up announcement and it's time to look ahead to a future that may include a solo career and/or an acting career.
"I'm genuinely excited," Joe says.
