According to the Sun, an insider source has confirmed that the boys have decided to take a year long break from the record-breaking boyband. Speaking about Zayn Malik's exit earlier this year and how it has affected their decision to take a break, the source said: “Of course, they would have preferred that he had stayed in the band, but they would have taken this extended hiatus even if he hadn’t left.”
Although One Direction reps haven't confirmed the news, they certainly haven't denied it either, leaving Directioners everywhere slightly worried about the future of their favourite band (to put it lightly). Here are some of the reactions from the infamous fandom...
Some were truly sincere
Some were in denial
Some were panicked
But most were really, really dramatic
Then, of course, there was the smug Nineties kids who knew the misery of boyband splits all too well...
Don't worry guys, it'll be alright in the end! What do you think about the boy band's potential split? Tweet us @sofeminineUK!
