Jonas Brothers fans can breathe a sigh of relief as singer Joe Jonas has brushed off rumours the group is splitting up after younger brother Nick took a time out to form his new band The Administration.

The youngest Lovebug hitmaker debuted Nick Jonas and The Administration in November and 20-year-old Joe admits he too has started writing his own music, sparking rumours of an impending solo project.

But Joe insists they have no plans to disband the group they share with older brother Kevin.

He tells People.com, "We are happy being a band, and it's what we've always wanted to do. We are not breaking up. There's no reason for us to do that."
