This is supposed to be a “Jonas Year” according to a Trending Topic on Twitter just yesterday. But no one specified whether that would be positive or negative. So far, 2013’s shaping up to be the latter for the Jonas Brothers, since the trio was just slapped with a lawsuit by a fan.
In records obtained by TMZ, Ashleigh Johnson is suing the boy band family after being “agonizingly crushed” at one of their free concerts back in May 2010 at The Grove in Los Angeles. She claims that during their mid-day performance, she was “pushed by an uncontrolled crowd against a guard fence” and “suffered serious mental, emotional and physical injuries as a result.”
Ashleigh Johnson’s also suing Caruso Management Company, Ltd., the owners of The Grove, for negligence, suggesting that both they, and the Jonas Brothers, knew a large number of fans — both young and old — would should up to the venue, but proper security measures were not in place.
So far, no notice of how much she’s seeking, nor any comments from the band, has been released.
Currently, Kevin, Joe and Nick are preparing for their 2013 world tour in Latin and South America from February through March. For all of the details, visit JonasBrothersFanClub.com.
