According to London’s The Sun, One Direction are set to part ways in 2016. The four guys in the band – Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan — are set to part company for a year to focus on solo projects.
A source reportedly said, “They fully deserve to have at least a year to work on their own projects. There is absolutely no bad blood between them and they are all 100 per cent behind the decision.
“It is definitely not a split and they fully intend to get back together at some time in the future.”
The plan had been on the cards “with or without Zayn” Malik, who left the group in March.
The source claimed: “Of course they would have preferred that he had stayed in the band but they would have taken this extended hiatus even if he hadn’t left.” It is believed the break was decided in a meeting in London last weekend.
