Directioners up in arms over potential hiatus

Published 24/08/2015

Fans simply won’t accept the possibility of One Direction splitting for a year to work on solo efforts.

Reports emerged Sunday suggesting the pop group, which is comprised of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson, have decided to disband temporarily in 2016.

And Directioners are not having it, as they can’t bear to see their favourite singers part.

“Nope nope nope nope nope nope nope if one direction split up I'll never be happy again (sic),” @_mirrinn wrote on Twitter, with user @EmmaEllis_ sharing similar sentiments with her tweet which read: “Not to be overdramatic but one direction is over and so is my whole life”.

News of One Direction disbanding comes just a few months after their fans experienced yet another heartbreak when Zayn Malik decided to leave the boyband to pursue a solo career in March.

But it’s claimed One Direction’s future hiatus hasn’t arisen from personality conflicts.

“The guys have been together for five years, which is an incredible run for any boyband. They fully deserve to have at least a year to work on their own projects. There is absolutely no bad blood between them and they are all 100 per cent behind the decision,” a source told UK newspaper The Sun. “It is definitely not a split and they fully intend to get back together at some time in the future.

“But for now it is the end and they go out on top as the world’s most popular music act.”

One Direction are currently performing shows worldwide as part of their On the Road Again Tour and they are also working on their fifth studio album. However if disbanding rumours are true, they will not be putting on a concert tour in connection with their fifth LP, which means their final show for the foreseeable future would take place on October 31 at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield.
