We were so relieved to hear that Niall is not actually leaving One Direction! Even though the rumor was false, the boys spent the whole day pretending it was real to mess with Niall — so funny!
One Direction is made up of the silliest boys ever — HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learnt that Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson treated Niall Horan like he was no longer a part of the band after the rumors started swirling. Find out exactly what they did to prank him!
One Direction Pranked Niall Horan After Rumors That He Quit Band
A source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “Harry thought it would be funny if he had the whole band act like Niall was out of the band and started talking to him and treating him like he was in the past tense, they ran with it all day.” That is too funny!
This was after Yahoo Celebrity UK and Sugarscape both tweeted on Dec. 28 that Niall was quitting the band, which forced fans into a frenzy.
Obviously, the boys had a good laugh about the false claims. “They were texting him to come back to the band and making joke decisions that didn’t involve him. They all had a pretty fun laugh about it. They aren’t breaking up and they wanted to treat the news as it was, a complete joke,” our source added.
One Direction’s rep told HollywoodLife.com that there is “no truth to this rumor.” It was such a sigh of relief to hear that!
Sugarscape tweeted the reason behind the scary tweet. “Just to confirm, Niall is NOT leaving One Direction. We were hacked, innit. #reasonsniallleftonedirection,” Sugarscape’s tweet read.
Yahoo Celebrity UK, which tweeted the rumor just one minute after Sugarscape, also let their followers know what was up. “Morning everyone. Just so you know, Niall Horan isn’t in fact leaving 1D, our account was hacked last night. We repeat, Niall isn’t leaving,” they tweeted.
