One Direction fans' hearts are about to be broken into a thousand little pieces, because, according to a new report, their extended hiatus is actually a permanent break.
The band, which now only consists of four members, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, previously announced they would be taking a break from their busy schedules this year but promised fans that it would not be forever. However, new reports contradict this claim as a source close to the band told Us Weekly that they will split.
Horan, Payne, Styles and Tomlinson reportedly decided "not to renew their recording contract" after they complete their tour in October, the source revealed. Adding, "The 1D thing just ran its course. They'll remain friends, but they are exhausted and want solo careers."
Which doesn't come as too much of a surprise since the fifth member of the group, Zayn Malik, made a dramatic exit in March 2015. Or maybe it does come as a massive surprise — because there are countless heartbroken One Directioners taking to Twitter to voice their disappointment.
