As anyone who spent years making voodoo dolls of their brothers or sisters (not speaking from experience or anything), sibling rivalry is rife during our teenage years. So, perhaps it's not too out there that Nick Jonas has admitted that he regrets spending his youth enmeshed in The Jonas Brothers.
The 23-year-old, who has now branched out into acting as well as music, opened up in his autobiographical documentary entitled Last Year Was Complicated and explained that life on the road with his two big bros wasn't always a fun-time buddy comedy.
Instead, their time as a bad was fraught with typical sibling squabbles and Nick reflected that:
“There were probably some family issues that needed to be sorted out. At some point, I need to be able to look at it with a positive angle."
After attending counseling to work through issues stemming from his time in the back, Nick realized that maybe it wasn't the best idea to make a career with family members when he was still developing as a person, he explained:
“It does suck that my 13-to 20-year-old years come with a lot of regret, almost, in a way."
You can watch the trailer for Nick's upcoming documentary that documents his struggles below:
Nick's comments support a quote from his eldest brother Kevin who spoke to Huffington Post back in 2015 and opened up about how tension had torn the Camp Rock band apart, he said:
"We were really lucky. Being a band that was able to tour, travel the world and make music that we love, and then be received well I think was great. At the end the friction was too much. We just really needed to break away and kind of do our own things for some time."
Let's just hope that some day Nick can look back on his Jonas Brother days with the same wave of warm nostalgia as his fans do now he has had time to grow as a person.
Would you ever consider working with your siblings?
