One Direction is going on ‘at least’ 1-year break beginning from March 2016, it has been reported.
According to several media reports on Sunday night, the group decided to take a break from each other so that they can pursue their own solo projects. Their upcoming fifth album will not be supported with a tour.
Sources close to the group insist that the decision was not influenced by Zayn Malik quitting One Direction earlier this year to go solo, but many observers are interpreting it as a sugar-coated way the group is announcing their break up for good.
Come March 2017, we will know.
