Simon Cowell has revealed One Direction may have split up permanently.
In a recent interview with Billboard magazine, Simon Cowell dropped hints that One Direction may have broken up for good.
“I don’t know if it’s a hiatus or a break-up, to be honest,” he said.
“In a weird way, I don’t want to know.
“I don’t think they’ve had enough time to experience what it’s like not being in the group to really answer that.”
“Whenever I was with them, we talked about [going on a break], and I couldn’t argue with them,” he said.
“They had achieved so much in a short period of time, and I didn’t want them to get jaded.”
However, what ever happens, we will still be seeing a lot of the boys as all of the boys are said to be working on solo projects.
During the same interview, Simon spoke about a potential solo album for Harry Styles:
“He’ll work out what kind of record he wants to make because he’s got great taste – which is always a help.
“All the writers and producers want to work with him, understandably, but he probably won’t rush into it.”
Meanwhile, Louis Tomlinson has recently become a father to a little boy named Freddie and praises Simon for letting the band have time off:
“Simon was completely understanding when we told him we wanted to go on a break. Not once did he put any pressure on us…
“Most people would’ve tried to give us at least a nudge. But he didn’t.”
As for Niall, he plans to set up a his own golf agency, whereas Liam is splitting his time between making music and spending time with his new girlfriend Cheryl Fernadez-Versini.
In other news, Zayn Malik released his album Mind Of Mine yesterday, just over a year after he left the band.
