Jonas Brother Threatens Legal Action Over Sex Claim
Blogger threatened with lawsuit by Joe Jonas...
The Jonas Brothers’ appeal is in part due to their clean-cut reputation. Joe and his brothers have taken vows of abstinence and have spoken openly about their decision to remain virgins until they marry.
The star, who turned 21 today, 15 August, instructed his lawyers contact Canadian blogger Zack Taylor after he allegedly claimed Joe and Demi were “friends with benefits”.
TMZ has obtained a copy of the letter from Jonas’ legal team, ordering the blogger to stop posting stories that claimed the stars "are involved in an illicit relationship".
It reads: "Your repeated posting of fabricated stories regarding our client must be viewed as evidence of your wilful or reckless disregard for the truth and reflect a malicious attempt to attack and devalue our client's good name and reputation."
The claims would not only tarnish Joe’s reputation, but could get him arrested as Demi, at 17, is below the legal age of consent in most US states.
The couple split in May after dating for just two months. They claim to still be good friends and appeared together on Good Morning America on Friday to perform tracks from the Camp Rock 2 soundtrack.
“Demi has been a friend of mine for a long time,” Joe explained. “I think our friendship is so strong that it surpasses a lot of things.”
