One Direction: Taking a Break

Aug 25, 2015

One Direction recently announced that they'll be taking a much needed year-long break in 2016, but some critics and fans suspect that the band is secretly calling it quits for good!

1D member Niall Halloran was the first to address the rumor on Twitter, saying: 

“Ok so Lots of rumors going round. We are not splitting up, but we will be taking a well earned break at some point next year.”

The break will apparently begin in March 2016 when the boys are done promoting their fifth album, and its possible they'll be pursuing solo projects - another rumor has it that Harry Styles already has a solo deal!
