One Direction Going On Hiatus

Yup, you’ve read that right. It would seem that the boys need some time off and that they want to focus on private matters for a whole year before they’re ready to climb the stage again. Ever since Zayn Malik’s departure from One Direction, fans have been unsure of the band’s future. At one point, Liam Payne admitted that they all need a break ASAP, which fueled the doubt of the fans even more.
However, everybody can take a deep breath and relax, as these were just paranoid rumours. Thanks to Niall, Louis and Liam’s tweets Tuesday morning (and no thanks to their publicists) we now know that they are simply going on a hiatus for a year to rest and charge their batteries. They claim they are “taking a well-earned break at some point next year.”
That point, it would seem, is March 2016. They will not tour to support their upcoming fifth album (which is odd) and who knows what will happen in the future. But they assure their fans that they will be back – we’ll see!
Ok so Lots of rumours going round. We are not splitting up, but we will be taking a well earned break at some point next year
