NEW YORK (AP) — Is there trouble within The Jonas Brothers?

They were supposed to start a tour tomorrow outside Philadelphia but they have called it off because of creative differences.

As of Tuesday, they were still planning on going, even tweeting a picture of a poster for the first stop.

The Jonas Brothers had intended to release their fifth album sometime before the end of the year — but the future of that is unclear.

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

Ticket holders 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.”
