Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros fire singer, melt down on social media
The couple started the band together and spent "five years on mushrooms" as Jade once said in describing their song duet song "home." The two broke up some time after the band started.
Ebert has a young daughter "Eartha" with his now-girlfriend.
Shorty after the band post, Ebert also posted on his own public page: "Only we must now explain that simply and sadly, we did not feel right doing this tour with Jade. That fact breaks my heart in ways I don't want to describe." That has also been deleted.
There is no further information as to why Jade was fired from the band, but fans have expressed plenty of concern about the change in the live performance without Jade on stage.
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will play in Telluride on June 12 and 13 without their front woman.
