One week after the Jonas Brothers world tour was canceled due to “a deep rift within the band,” multiple sources are reporting Joe Jonas’ heroin addiction is the real problem.
According to Blind Gossip, Joe dabbled in heroin in the past, but developed a full-blown addiction after he began dating illustrator Blanda Eggenschwiler (pictured together above in September). Joe and Blanda previously made news together when it was reported they made a graphic sex tape together and were filmed doing drugs. Joe’s reps denied the existence of the tape and nothing ever surfaced.
Celebrity Dirty Laundry verified the report with an inside source and added the Jonas family is so desperate to keep the addiction a secret they don’t even want Joe to enter rehab.
That plan may have backfired after Joe was pictured with a known addiction specialist in Los Angeles: TMZ identified Joe’s new companion as Mike Bayer, the founder of CAST Recovery Services and former aide to Demi Lovato. Based on CAST Recovery Services’ website, Mike is an interventionist who has more than a decade of experience in the addiction and mental health field.
“Mike and his team at CAST understand the personal and confidential needs required to support high-profile clients at home or at work in order to minimize disruption to their careers,” his bio explains.
The Jonas family hasn’t addressed the reports.
