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.”

Rauner Denies Involvement in Springfield Reporter’s Resignation

Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate businessman Bruce Rauner participates in a Republican gubernatorial candidate debate Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014, in Springfield, Ill. The four Republican gubernatorial candidates said that they’ll be willing to work with unions if elected but differed on how to approach the relationship during a downstate debate that largely focused on pension reform, taxes and just briefly on personal issues that have dogged some of the candidates.

Bruce Rauner says his fingerprints are not on the Chicago Sun-Times.

Durbin: Sun-Times Reporter’s Departure “Worrisome”

Republican state Sen., Jim Oberweis, right, offers to give Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, more paper after Durbin joked about only getting one page of paper for notes before their first of two televised debates prior to the Nov. 4 election Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014, in Chicago. Oberweis, a dairy entrepreneur from Sugar Grove, has acknowledged it will take a big GOP year to unseat Durbin, the second-ranking Democrat in the U.S. Senate who's represented Illinois on Capitol Hill for more than three decades.

Bruce Rauner’s campaign is being accused of bullying the Chicago Sun-Times, and U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) says that should be a troubling sign to voters.
