As pop duo The Veronicas, Jess and Lisa Origliasso have been entertaining Australia for 15 years.
But the future of the band was thrown into doubt when the twin sisters recently endured a shocking 18-month estrangement.
Now, the recently reconciled stars, 34, are speaking about their rift for the first time, with Jessica telling Stellar magazine on Sunday: ‘We were so connected, so close. For that to be a threat to anybody has been one of the hardest things for me to understand.’

The twin sisters do not specifically name the person or persons who ‘threatened’ their bond.
Jessica stated: ‘I am so proud of how strong we’ve been… We have tried to handle ourselves as gracefully as possible. Nobody should feel like they can force themselves into your life how it suits them when it’s toxic and unwanted.’
Despite cryptic references to outside forces, the brunette singer told Stellar that she is still baffled by how she ever fell out with Lisa, considering their closeness.

‘It’s hard to comprehend. I still cannot understand it. There’s no way of explaining it,’ she poignantly told Stellar, adding: ‘I was watching baby videos our dad brought over the other day of Lise and I. We were so connected’.
The twins are now working on music together for the first time, with their new single Think Of Me set for release next month.
Both Jessica and Lisa are also in happy relationships.
