The Jonas Brothers broke the hearts of their teenage fans everywhere when they suddenly announced that their tenure as a swoon-inducing boy band had come to an end — at least for now. They canceled their fall tour, explaining to “Good Morning America” that “we feel like we’re best suited to do our own individual things.”
Nick Jonas — who was the one who initiated the band’s breakup — started doing his own thing immediately after, closing on a $3.2 million L.A. home just two days after the brothers’ “GMA” appearance.
Previously, Jonas was renting an apartment in New York while starring in the Broadway play “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” His rental was owned by hockey player Scott Gomez and was also previously home to designer Marc Jacobs.
Although Jonas could have stayed in the Big Apple, the West Coast may have been more appealing to the New Jersey native as a fresh start.
His new place is set behind large gates above Sunset Strip in L.A.’s Hollywood Hills neighborhood. Boasting views of the ocean and city lights, the Spanish-style home was built in 1938, but “renovated to exacting standards.”
Abounding with indoor and outdoor living space, the white-washed stucco home has 4 bedrooms and 5 baths on a 2,305-square-foot floor plan and includes high-end details such as a gourmet kitchen, steam shower in the master suite and a celeb favorite: state-of-the-art security.
