Nick Jonas Cause of Jonas Brothers Split

The Jonas Brothers' famous split in October 2013 had only one person to blame -- Nick Jonas.

The youngest member of the popular sibling boy band finally came clean on a recent episode of "Watch What Happens Live" with Andy Cohen and revealed that not only did he initiate the split of their band, he was the reason for it.

"It was a very tough conversation, and it left the family kind of shaken up for a little while. I mean we were about to start a tour. We were two days from starting a tour," he reflected. Of course, everything turned out well for Kevin, Nick and Joe Jonas.

"We're good now. I have a beautiful niece. My brother has a family. Joe's band DNCE is doing very well," Nick said. "It's good for everybody and it's good that it happened because I think we all grew from it, but it was very challenging for a little while."'

Back when the band first split up, Nick said he'd started the conversation about breaking up the group because they had been fighting a lot. Kevin Jonas, the eldest member of the group, handled most of the press around their breakup and even told "Good Morning America" that it was "time for the Jonas Brother to come to an end."

The news doesn't come as a huge shock since Nick, now 23, and the genius behind several major hits from "Jealous" to "Chains," has had a very successful solo career. Like he said, perhaps it was all for the best.
