Joe Jonas Tackles The Drug Addiction Rumors
Joe Jonas is tackling those drug addiction rumors. The allegation that Joe was battling a drug problem was initially cited as a primary reason for the "rift" between the Jonas Brothers. The band announced their split yesterday.
Regarding the gossip that he's been battling a heroin addiction, Joe gave PEOPLE Magazine the exclusive:
Now the 24-year-old singer 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 obviously not true. I've never touched heroin in my life. Either has my girlfriend," he said. "It's hilarious to me, but also frustrating as well. It pissed me off when it's about my girl and even about myself."
At one point, he said, people even approached him personally about it.
"I was walking down the street and people are asking me if they can give me a hug and how rehab is," says Joe. "I'm like, you tell me because I've never been."
And there you have it. Hugs not drugs, says the JoBro.
Do you believe him, Instincters?
