The Jonas Brothers have scrapped their North American tour due to a reported "deep rift" between the pop siblings.

The Love Bug hitmakers were set to kick off a series of shows in Pennsylvania on Friday (11Oct13), but an argument between Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas last weekend (05-06Oct13) has prompted the trio to abruptly cancel the 19-date trek.

Spokesman Jesse Derris tells, "There is a deep rift within the band. There was a big a disagreement over their music direction."

Ticketholders have been offered refunds for the scrapped dates, but the future of The Jonas Brothers is not yet known.

Derris adds, "It remains to be seen."
