Okay Directioners, you’ve made it this far, and now you can breathe a sigh of relief — Harry isn’t going anywhere! A rep for the band told the Mirror that the boys have no plans to go solo just yet! “No discussions about solo deals are happening with any members of One Direction currently,” the rep told the U.K. website. “Sony are fully committed to all of One Direction and are looking forward to the release of the group’s new album.”
Phew! It sounds like we got all worried for nothing! Besides, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson all guaranteed fans via Twitter that the band really is just taking a much-needed break and this isn’t the end.
Your support is truly indescribable! It’s just a break :) we’re not going anywhere !!

Although Harry hasn’t tweeted the same reassurance, he did tweet the day after the hiatus announcement thanking Chicago fans for their support on the night of the news breaking. We’ll take that as an indication that he loves being part of 1D!
Are YOU relieved to hear that Harry isn’t working on a record deal, HollywoodLifers? Do you think he should put out a solo album during the band’s break? Let us know below!
