With the future of the Jonas Brothers in peril ... and a big decision looming ... Joe Jonas ventured out alone today -- rollin' solo in L.A.
As we've reported ... Joe, Nick and Kevin are deeply divided musically and are expected to decide the fate of the band this weekend -- whether they'll stay together ... or go their separate ways.
24-year-old Joe -- the middle brother -- hit up SoHo House in West Hollywood this afternoon ... sans brothers.
Maybe he's trying it on for size.
We May Break Up
We've Become Totally Schizo!
10/9/2013 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Jonas Brothers -- Kevin, Joe and Nick -- are close to breaking up ... they are going in 3 different directions and the band has lost its identity ... sources close to the group tell TMZ.
The Brothers Jonas just cancelled their entire upcoming tour -- 19 concerts, which was supposed to kick off Friday.
Our sources say ... the rift exploded over the release of their next batch of songs. Each brother had a different vision of where they wanted to take the band, ranging from pop to hard rock. They all agreed on one thing -- releasing anything new would be a disaster, because the style would be all over the place.
The concert cancellation may be a precursor to an official breakup, but so far no decision has been made. Our sources say the guys are meeting this weekend to try and hash things out.
We're told, "It could go either way."
The JoBros performed last night in Minneapolis ... and gave what could be their last interview as a group.

Would You Rather?

It was a former Disney dude buff arm battle, as "High School Musical" hunk Zac Efron, 25, flashed his tan, ripped muscles before hurting his wrist while filming his new movie in L.A. this week (left) -- while musclebound "Camp Rock" boy bander Joe Jonas, 23, pumped up his God-fearing biceps in a funny new video clip (right).
They've both grown up to be fine young men, so we gotta ask ...
THERE IS NO SEX TAPE
3/21/2013 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sorry you creepy weirdos ... Joe Jonas did NOT record a raunchy sex tape with his Swiss model GF ... despite reports to the contrary ... Joe's rep tells TMZ.
Reports have been circulating that Joe -- who once wore a purity ring espousing his virginity -- filmed himself doing the nasty with gf Blanda Eggenschwiler while under the influence of pot and alcohol. The reports claim the sex footage features some crazy BDSM stuff, including paddles and ball gags.
But Joe's rep tells TMZ, it's total BS ... no such tape exists.
The rep says, "There is no truth or validity to the story. It is completely false."
Fan Sues -- They Have
A Huge Crush On Me
1/2/2013 4:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
A Jonas Brothers fan has sued the group, claiming they're so popular, she was crushed during a concert by crazed groupies.
Ashleigh Johnson filed the lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- in which she claims she was at The Grove in L.A. back in May, 2010, watching the boys perform an early bird special (3 PM), when she was pushed by an uncontrolled crowd against a guard fence.
Ashleigh says she was "agonizingly crushed" into the fence and suffered serious mental, emotional and physical injuries as a result.
Ashleigh -- who didn't ante up her age -- is suing the group as well as Caruso Management, the folks behind The Grove.
Here's a good defense. Who knew The Jonas Bros. were still popular?
Ignores Fan's Pic Request
... In Saddest Video Ever

This video ... IS SOOOOOO SAD!!!!
A passionate Jonas Brothers fan waited outside Katsuya in Hollywood last night -- in the cold and the rain -- for a moment with her hero, Kevin Jonas ... only to learn what rejection feels like.
It was SOOOOOO SAD!!!!
FYI -- Kevin DID take pics with a bunch of fans as he left the restaurant with his wife ... trying to please everyone ... but the superfan got lost in the crush and never got a chance to pose with her hero.
Still, SOOOOO SAD!!!!
Rushed to ER
With Pain in the Abs
12/19/2011 7:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Joe Jonas checked into an emergency room in L.A. while doctors inspected his abs -- for severe stomach pains -- 48 hours after Joe did some late night partying in Chicago.
A rep for Joe confirms he went to the emergency room at Children's Hospital L.A. on Sunday. We're told Joe was only at the hospital briefly ... and it's not clear what was wrong with him.
One potential hint -- on Friday night (into Saturday morning) Joe was out at a Chicago hot spot Board Room Nightclub (above) partying ... and performed the next night in Chi-Town.
Whatever the problem was ... Joe felt good enough to eat out -- we spotted him and his bro Nick leaving Katsuya last night. Sushi after stomach troubles? Risky, Joe.
