The Jonas brothers became one of the most successful boy-bands in the music industry and although they separated for a while, they found a way back to each other. While they were on sabbatical, the trio had incredible solo careers and even got married.
However, now, it seems like they have a lot of atoning to do with another member of their family.
Days after Frankie Jonas opened up during an interview, about the hardships he had to face growing up in the spotlight, his brother, Joe Jonas apologized to him.

The Jonas Brothers
This band was formed in 2005 and its members gained prominence after making appearances as child stars on Disney Channel.
Their first song titled “Please Be Mine,” got the attention of the then Columbia Records President, Steve Greenberg. From that moment, the trio became a force to be reckoned with in the industry.
Sadly, in late 2013, the group announced that their separation. Six years later, they decided to make a comeback with their first single since 2013 titled “Sucker.”
The Jonas Brother
While millions of people all over the world are familiar with the Jonas brothers who are singers, they may not know that there is a fourth Jonas brother.
Frankie Jonas was born in 2000 on September 28, and he’s the youngest in the Jonas family.
He made his movie debut in a film titled “Ponyo,” as the voiced character Sōsuke. After this, he landed a role in “Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam” alongside his brothers.
Frankie recorded his first song in 2017, which he titled “Shanghai Noon.” Other song credits include “Appa” and “Too Young” which he helped produce in 2019.
Growing Up In The Spotlight
It’s one thing to be a successful band-boy with your brothers and another thing to be the brother of successful band brothers.
Frankie was in the latter category. He was only five years old when his brothers formed their band and exposed their family to the spotlight.
Recently, Frankie recounted his struggles while growing up, which left to a number of bad decisions like alcoholism. He also spoke about the nickname the media gave to him, which he despised.
He was often referred to as the ‘bonus brother,’ and social media users created memes about him. As early as 12 years old, Frankie started battling with his mental health.
A Profound Apology
While it’s clear that his brothers meant him no harm with their respective successful careers, Frankie still had to go through a lot because of it.
After speaking out in a recent interview, one of his brothers, Joe, reached out.
He explained that after Frankie made it clear that the nickname was hurtful, he refused to use it on him again. Joe also went on to validate his brother’s feelings by saying that it wasn’t fair for anyone to feel like they’re‘second, third or fourth.’
Although his brothers got their fame early, it’s not took late for Frankie. The social media personality is currently the talk of the town for gaining over a million followers on his TikTok account.
