Yesterday, Directioners around the globe simultaneously melted down upon hearing rumours about their favourite boys going separate ways. At that time, several media outlets reported that One Direction plans on taking an extended hiatus starting March 2016.

Although it wasn’t confirmed by an actual source (One Direction’s rep or members), fans were under the impression that it may lead to an eventual break up.

Alas, 3/4 One Direction members have reassured the group’s passionate fanbase that, yes, they are indeed going to take a break but no, they had no plans to split up.

The comments followed a report in British newspaper The Sun citing a “1D source” that the band was to separate for at least a year, leaving the band’s enormous global teenage following devastated.

Niall Horan officially responded to the news via Twitter. The 21-year-old One Direction member wrote to his 23 million Twitter followers:

And if that’s not enough to reassure fans, fellow band member Louis Tomlinson, 23, also wrote:

While 21-year-old Liam Payne said, “Thank you so much for everything you have done for us it’s been the most amazing five years and there’s so much more to come.”

A spokesman for the band had declined to comment on the report in The Sun, which followed speculation the band might break up after popular former member Zayn Malik, 22, quit due to stress in March.

The band is due to release its 5th album before Christmas, and fulfil promotional commitments by the end of February 2016, the report in The Sun said. There is no tour scheduled for the new album.

It’s not that bad, you guys. The boys just really, really need a break after working hard and almost non-stop for 5 whole years. Let’s continue to give them love and support, shall we? 🙂
