Fans pretty much lost their marbles when One Direction confirmed Zayn Malik’s exit from the band on March 25. In a statement, 1D vowed to go on as a four-piece, but does Harry Styles have one foot out the door? HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned the truth!
Say it isn’t so! Hours after One Direction confirmed Zayn Malik‘s exit from the band, rumors started circulating, suggesting that Harry Styles would be next to leave the super successful group. Could it be true? Here’s what we know.
Harry Styles Leaving One Direction After Zayn Malik’s Exit? — Truth Revealed
“Harry is interested in acting, writing for other artists, and doing some solo work, but he has made it clear to the other guys in the band, as well as Simon Cowell, that he is down to do all that and still remain in One Direction. He is not going to leave the band. He is happily enjoying the ride and looks forward to continuing with them for years to come,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Phew! What a relief. After the traumatic day that One Direction fans have had today, March 25, we don’t think they could handle anymore bad news. We’re so excited to hear that Harry plans on staying with the group for “years to come.” And a big reason why is because he’s able to “branch out in all areas of entertainment” at the same time.
Harry Styles Will Stay With One Direction, But Wants To Branch Out
“Harry is a really creative guy, who wants to branch out in all areas of entertainment. He definitely wants to act, as well as write and sing music with other performers and musicians. But he will do all of this in addition to working and playing with 1D. He has no plans of leaving and there is no way Simon would let that happen. Fortunately, he has a very supportive team, led by Simon, and they encourage him to do other things like acting. He’s already been writing for other acts and with singers like Meghan Trainor. He knows all these opportunities have come to him because of 1D, so he doesn’t want to turn his back on that,” another source EXCLUSIVELY added.
Harry is one loyal guy! And that’s just one of many reasons why we love him.
