UK MUSIC NEWS: JLS STAR BREAKS DOWN ON TALK SHOW OVER SPLIT / WHAT’S THE REAL STORY HERE?

JLSSPLIT

Yesterday it was announced that after five years together boy band JLS will split up after the release of a Greatest Hits album and their farewell tour in December.

Today Digital Spy reports that JLS star Oritsé Williams broke down in tears while discussing the group’s split during a taping of this week’s edition of Alan Carr: Chatty Man.

Asked by Carr if he had been against the split, Williams replied: “It is what it  is, I guess. The decision was made and we all felt it was the right thing to  do.”Explaining his emotional reaction, he continued: “It’s only because  I saw the fans literally as we were coming in to see you and just seeing them  cry and seeing them upset really evoked that emotion in me. “But you  know, it is a celebration. At the end of the day we’ve had an amazing six years  together. We’ve been on a journey.”Nobody else may have seen the hard  times as well as the good times, but we’re the luckiest four boys in the  world.”

“It is what it  is, I guess. The decision was made and we all felt it was the right thing to  do.”

Who made this decision? What is REALLY going on here?

It doesn’t sound like any of the group members had anything to do with this decision or were ready to split up yet. I would not be surprised if Sony Music ruthlessly dropped them months ago after their last album and single performed poorly. Plus Sony has One Direction now.

  1. One common theme I noticed on The Big Reunion, there was either one who thought they were too big for the group and caused the split because they wanted a solo career or just couldn’t handle the fame and wanted out. Wouldn’t be surprised if Marvin or Aston were the cause of the split.

  2. Oritsé is probably crying because he’s the Anthony Costa of the group, least popular who probably hasn’t saved his money and will have a hard time post JLS like the other bug eyed one to get decent work to afford the lifestyle he’s been used to in recent years.

  3. He was at an event on Sunday looking very somber. Hat pulled down low, ignored all the giggling little girls who kept walking past. Those tears were not for ‘fans’ he is devastated.

    This is a sad time. Can you stop making me laugh please? lol.

    I agree perhaps this split is down to Marvin or Aston who have both managed to bag well paying jobs on TV and radio. They probably wanted a “break” away from the group to do other things.

  5. I heard that Oritse has been writing songs for Jedward and still manages that girl group (I can’t remember their name)

    I don’t know what JB is doing outside of the group. I only ever see him photographed with his “fiance”.

  6. I don’t know what JB is doing outside of the group. I only ever see him photographed with his “fiance”. LMAO please stop Janice! JB has apparently bought a deer farm in Scotland so will be focusing on that…

    They may have been dropped, but it was only one single that flopped most of their songs have done well. Maybe the record company knew there wasn’t anywhere else for them to go as they probably wouldn’t be able to crack America…unlike One Direction.

    Also Oritse was the brainchild behind JLS, he put found the other guys and put the group together so it is understandable he would would take it harder than the rest of them.

  7. Simon Cowell is the devil. I will be surprised if one direction lasts very long either. This x factor happens every year and every year there’s a potential winner who might make the company more money than the previous one. They are as if they are on a conveyor belt and soon one will drop off and be replaced by another. It is a fast money making machine. They have no time and money to waste on keeping them at the top. If they do not hit straight away then it is over. If Marvin and Aston went their ways, it might be because they saw this whole thing coming to an end and jumped on the next best opportunities. Not surprising that they are the ones who have bagged something on TV and radio. I hope they got something out of it ultimately, and there will be few regrets and hopefully will go on to do whatever they see fit.

    I don’t know where the hell Leona is, but that is x factor.

    Agreed. He know’s he’s the ugly, kinda fat, untalented one that will have to do reality TV shows to make money now.

    Untalented. Wow.
    Oritse can sing. He’s not ugly either. It’s just he’s in a group with pretty (not handsome) light skinned/ mixed race guys. Shadism is real y’all.

    Good luck to them. I like JLS.
    They weren’t riddled with scandal. Hard working and focused. I hope they’ll do well in their next adventure.

  10. wow some comments are unnecessary but i hope they have invested their money wisely, and no doubt One D is the ultimate cash cow for Sony(they are known for being absolutely ruthless)

  11. not a fan of this but this really a surprise, especially after Marvin started the radio show but should be interesting to see where they go with this, they were all the young musicians rich list so here’s hoping it works out for them.
