At this point in their pop comeback, the Jonas Brothers don't appear to be holding anything back when it comes to their highly-publicized reunion and how the three-piece worked through their issues to arrive at a healthy headspace. In the band's new episode of Dr. Phil's Fill In The Blanks odcast, the act also got candid about a topic near and dear to their hearts: how the trio's fame (and accompanying breakup) impacted their parents.
"I think it shook him, for sure," Nick said during the podcast of how the group's troubles impacted their parents. At the time, Paul Kevin Jonas, Sr. played both the roles of father and manager, but Joe said that he has moved onto new ventures and has been able to take a step away from the entertainment industry after beating cancer in 2018. "He opened a restaurant in the same few months of finding out that he had cancer, so the restaurant business is like buying a boat. It's a pretty scary and bad idea, but he opened up a beautiful restaurant in his hometown and employed all of his hometown friends from childhood," he explained. For us, that's kinda become a nice escape."
Dr. Phil went on to urge the brothers to be as open and honest with their parents, specifically because of how much they helped make their dreams come true. "[Paul Kevin Jonas, Sr.] couldn't be more proud and I think what he says in the doc is probably the thing that hurt him so much was seeing us have issues with each other when the band broke up," Joe continued. "But the healthy relationship that we have now, he's like 'That's the most important thing.'
