Simon Cowell revealed in an all-new interview that One Direction might be ready ‘to take some time off’ and be ‘apart’ for a while. Could 1D be splitting up for good?!
Are the boys of One Direction heading in different directions? After a whirlwind year with Zayn Malik, 22, leaving and Louis Tomlinson’s baby bombshell, Simon Cowell, 55, confessed that the boy band might be ready to “take some time off.” He hopes they’ll have some time to pursue other endeavors and eventually want “get back together again.” Wait, what?!
“In terms of the band, they’ve got enough hits now they can take some time off and do some other stuff they want to do,” Simon told The Sun. “Then I hope they’ll have a little bit of time apart and want to get back together again. It’s a fun job, but it’s absolutely their decision.”
Whoa. However, Simon does have a point. The boys are finishing off their On The Road Again tour and working on their fifth album. A break might do them some good so they don’t get tired of each other. But just as long as they get back together!
The band — now Louis, Harry Styles, 21, Niall Horan, 21, and 21-year-old Liam Payne — has been rocked this year by some life-defining moments. After five years with the band, Zayn left in March 2015 and is now pursuing a solo career. Louis, 23, the band’s oldest member, is expecting his first child with Briana Jungwirth, 23, later this year. Rumors went wild on Twitter on July 18 that Liam and girlfriend Sophia Smith got engaged.
