How many times do you look to celebrity news these days and see stories of scandal involving former Disney child stars (Lindsey Lohan, Vanessa Hudgens, Miley Cyrus)? It’s nice to see a story like this that has a nice ending.
Billboard reports that the Jonas Brothers have ended their working relationship with Disney and their record label, Hollywood Records. They’ve also bought back the rights to their master recordings, merchandising and publishing for an undisclosed amount.
This isn’t the end of the musical trio’s career though. Johnny Wright, their manager, tells fans that they can expect a new album (there hasn’t been one in over three years) by the end of 2012 or early in 2013.
When contacted by The Hollywood Reporter, a Hollywood Records spokesperson commented: “Hollywood Records and Jonas Brothers have amicably ended an amazingly successful partnership after six years. … We couldn’t have asked for better partners or nicer people to work with. We wish Nick, Kevin and Joe all the best in their future endeavors.”
