Joe Jonas has slammed rumors he has a substance abuse problem.
The 24-year-old singer is upset about allegations that he and his girlfriend, Blanda Eggenschwiler's constant partying led to the breakdown of his band, The Jonas Brothers, with his siblings Nick and Kevin, and speculation he recently sought treatment in rehab for drug abuse.
"It's ridiculous! We're not saying anything for two or three weeks and I'm a drug addict! It's obviously not true. I've never touched heroin in my life. Neither has my girlfriend. It's hilarious to me, but also frustrating as well. It p***ed me off when it's about my girl and even about myself. I was walking down the street and people are asking me if they can give me a hug and how rehab is. I'm like, 'You tell me because I've never been,'" the "Pom Poms" hitmaker told People.com.
The brothers decided to call it quits after Nick, 21, told them he had doubts about the band and Joe is eager to set the record straight after taking a few weeks to deal with the split: "We all had to deal with it in our own way. I needed time to clear my head."
According to a rep for the 18-year-old actress/singer, Demi “left her tour early this weekend in order to seek medical treatment for emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time.”
The Sonny with a Chance star "has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help,” the statement read. “Demi and her family ask that the media please respect their privacy during this difficult time. She regrets not being able to finish her tour, but is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future."

Teenage girls around the world can stop crying: Joe Jonas has split from Demi Lovato.
The Jonas Brothers singer - who has previously dated singer Taylor Swift and actress Camilla Belle - has decided to end his relationship with the actress but insists the break-up is amicable.
“Demi and I knew going into our romantic relationship that it may not be an easy one. I realize over the time we have shared together that I feel I care more about our friendship right now. It was my choice to break-up, but I love her as a friend. She’s been there for me when I needed her. I will continue to be her friend and be there for her.”
It had been reported, Demi - who met Joe on the set of Camp Rock in 2007 and began dating him earlier this year - was dumped by Joe over the phone but she insists that didn’t happen: “There are so many crazy rumors flying around today. Joe and I did split, but it wasn’t over the phone. Things didn’t work out but we’ll remain friends.”
Demi, 17, had recently spoken about her love for Joe, saying, “He is my first serious relationship… He knows me better than I know myself, and I know him better than he knows himself.”
Sorry, ladies. There’s one less Jonas Brother to choose from now.
Earlier today, Kevin Jonas, the oldest of the trio, officially became a groom-to-be. After a long flight to New Jersey from Vancouver, BC (where he was on stage), the musician proposed to his girlfriend - on bended knee! - this morning.
“It was tough performing last night, knowing that I was going to ask the biggest question in my life to the most amazing girl in the world,” the 22-year-old told People magazine. Fortunately, he received an enthusiastic response. “She said yes, yes, yes like 500 times super fast in a row,” Jonas said.
Kevin and Danielle Deleasa, 22, met while vacationing in the Bahamas. They’ve been together for over two years now.

Family. They’re always willing to speak up for ya….even when you don’t want them to.
On Thursday’s broadcast of Larry King Live, the CNN host got to the truth on his hard news story of the night. During a chat with the Jonas Brothers, King asked what all of his tween viewers wanted to know: Are the boys currently taken?
Scroll to the 1:40 mark for the awkwardness.

Uh, let’s be clear—Joe Jonas shouldn’t be making plans to leave his boy band anytime soon.
To promote their upcoming album (Lines, Vines and Trying Times comes out on June 16), the Jonas Brothers have begun moonlighting as wish makers. This clip above has been dubbed by the trio as “long-awaited and long-requested.” Really?
My two thoughts on this? A) Justin Timberlake already channeled Beyonce last year…and he did it better. B) Is Joe the only person on Earth who doesn’t know the lyrics to “Single Ladies”?

Although most people didn’t know that Joe Jonas and Camilla Belle had been dating until late last week, it turns out the two had already been spending quality time together. According to Us Weekly, this picture of the actress with the brothers was taken in Mexico back on November 9. This means Joe and Camilla were vacationing together just weeks after the breakup with Taylor Swift. (I guess life moves a lot more quickly when you’re a celebrity.)
Interestingly enough, it looks as if Jonas may have been seeking out Camilla months before they ever met. After the jump, you can see the 19-year-old reference Belle in a video made back in March.

With the news of his relationship with Camilla Belle now out, Joe Jonas has been forced to go on the defense.
In a recent post on the Jonas Brothers’ MySpace page, the 19-year-old tries to address many of the questions currently being posed. While he doesn’t deny leaving Taylor Swift for another girl (he actually doesn’t even mention the country singer by name), he does deny ever cheating on her. Jonas also claims the infamous “27-second” phone call wasn’t his fault. (Apparently he thought Swift would had something more to say after hearing “I’m interested in someone else.”)
You can read Joe’s version of the story in its entirety after the jump.

NOTE TO THE LADIES: If a man spends less than 30 seconds breaking up with you, it’s probably because he already has someone waiting in the wings.
Back in early October, Joe Jonas put an end to his high-profile relationship with Taylor Swift. Despite several public outings, the 19-year-old eventually gave the country star the boot over the phone. Now it appears he might have had his eyes set on someone a little less blonde.

What never officially existed is now apparently over. Attention tweens of the world—Joe Jonas is now back on the market.
According to Us Weekly, the Jonas Brothers performer and his country singer girlfriend are now over. Sources claim the 19-year-old broke up with Taylor Swift last Friday over the phone.
Back in August, the couple were seen double-dating with Nick Jonas and his girlfriend, Selena Gomez. The two (as pictured above) even sat next to each other - in public - at the 2008 Video Music Awards.
While I’m sure Swift could easily find another man soon, Joe supposedly broke the 18-year-old’s heart. Sounds like good material for a new album!
