When the moment came to break up the Jonas Brothers on Oct. 3, Nick Jonas tells PEOPLE that he went "into a bit of trance."
"You prep a million ways," says Nick, 21. But once he admitted to his brothers how he felt, that he wasn't sure the band could continue as it was, "there was sort of a shut-off that happened. It took some time, about 24 hours or so, before we could really talk about it."
On Tuesday came the exclusive announcement to PEOPLE that, as a professional music team, the sibling trio are "over for now."
At first, Joe, 24, and Kevin, 25, said they were shocked by what went down.

After the Jonas Brothers abruptly canceled their tour three weeks ago – and went silent as they contemplated the band's future – reports surfaced suggesting that Joe Jonas had a drug problem.
Now the singer, 24, wishes to set the record straight, telling PEOPLE: "It's ridiculous!"
"We're not saying anything for two or three weeks and I'm a drug addict!"
What upset him even more is that his girlfriend, Blanda Eggenschwiler, was also dragged into the rumors.

"It's over for now," Kevin Jonas says.
"It's really hard to say 'forever,' " says Nick. "We're closing a chapter, for sure."
"It was a unanimous decision," says Joe.

The latest Jonas Brothers change-up is decidedly less dramatic.
The eldest Jonas, Kevin, 25, is in the process of building a new home in New Jersey, where his current Denville digs is on the market.
Jonas and expectant wife Danielle are asking for $2.2 million to move into the 7,200-sq. ft., five-bedroom house, which serves as the backdrop of their E! reality series, Married to Jonas.

Don't hold out hope for a reunion, JoBro fans.
"They are not getting along at all. It's uglier than you think," a music industry source tells PEOPLE.
"They are each looking into solo projects. Nick and the Administration are working on another album. They are moving forward away from the Jonas Brothers. I think this is the beginning of the end."
Still, a source close to the band maintains that the guys are still talking, at least. "The idea that this is acrimonious is wrong," says the source. "The guys are all talking and haven't stopped talking ever."

The Jonas Brothers are canceling their tour – two days before it was set to begin, PEOPLE has learned. The reason?
"There is a deep rift within the band," their spokesman, Jesse Derris, tells PEOPLE exclusively. "There was a big a disagreement over their music direction."
Over the weekend, an argument between the trio – Nick, 21, Joe, 24, and Kevin, 25 – regarding the direction of the band and its music led to the decision to cancel their 19-date tour, which was to kick off Friday.
Ticket holders' money will be refunded.

Whether on- or offstage, the Jonas Brothers have always presented a united front. But there's apparently one topic that spurs dissention in the ranks: Miley Cyrus.
In the latest issue of Out magazine, the siblings – Kevin, 25, Joe, 24, and Nick, 21 – tackle a variety of buzzy subjects, but when the conversation veers toward the controversial "Wrecking Ball" singer, the brothers aren't quite on the same page.

Call it a love game.
Nick Jonas and his rumored girlfriend, Miss Universe Olivia Culpo, made it clear that they're a couple when they were spotted kissing courtside at the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York on Tuesday.
The pair – who reportedly met when the 20-year-old co-hosted the Miss USA pageant in June – were on a double date with Joe Jonas and his girlfriend, Blanda Eggenschwiler.
