Kevin Jonas Opens Up About Being Bullied When He Was A Kid in 'Chasing Happiness'

A ton of things were revealed in the Jonas Brothers‘ new documentary, Chasing Happiness and one of the biggest was eldest brother Kevin revealing he was bullied as a kid.

The 31-year-old musician admitted that when he was young, while both Nick and Joe were steering towards entertaining careers, he was more interested in “kinda odd” activities including gymnastics, pole vaulting and magic.

“I became a target. Kids were cruel at that age. They would call me gay. They would call me a f*g. They would call me p*sshead,” Kevin recalls. “It would break me down. I remember coming home from school and crying to my parents.”

He adds, “I think what was really hard was I never felt like I could find the place where I fit in. Even though I had things I loved, I just never felt like I connected with anyone, like, truly.”

He ended up finding a place in commercial acting, which then led to him, Nick and Joe starting to make music together. They wrote “Please Be Mine,” which they released in 2006, in 10 minutes in their basement.

“I think that was the moment we all looked at each other and we’re like, ‘This could be something,’” Joe says of writing the track.

“Very few feelings in my life as sure as that,” Nick agrees.

Chasing Happiness is streaming now on Amazon Prime.
