FANS have been left devastated tonight after it was reported One Direction will go on an extended break for at least 12 months.
The band, made up of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan, will perform their last live concert on October 31 at Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield before going on a break in March next year.
There has been no fall out between the boys, who recently dropped their new single and video for Drag Me Down, and they still plan to release further material, according to The Sun newspaper.
The lads, who have been together for five years after finding fame on The X Factor, are said to have had a top secret meeting in London last weekend where they decided to ‘split’.
Rumours have been rife for a while that the band could be set to split but they continued to tour after Zayn left the group and Liam thanked fans for “not thinking it’s finished”.
The news of the ‘split’ comes after it was revealed Louis is expecting his first child with Los Angeles-based stylist Briana Jungwirth. – Mirror
