Here’s a video of Joe Jonas taking a casual stroll to his car, nothing more, right? Not exactly.
Hanging in the wings and accompanying the Jonas Brothers singer is a well-known addiction specialist, Mike Bayer, who founded Cast Recovery Services—a company that swoops in and helps with “quickly responding to crisis situations,” generally of the drug abuse and mental health variety.
Mike has coincidentally worked with Joe’s ex-girlfriend Demi Lovato, so the specialist runs in a tight-knit circle. Joe, not feeling the surrounding presence of paparazzi, was not in the mood to talk, which he made clear in this video footage of him leaving a West Hollywood recording studio yesterday afternoon.
This specialist’s appearance arrives in a year where rampant drug use rumors have circled the middle Jonas brother and more recent strife within the group, suggesting a possible breakup for the band.
