It seems like every few months a new story surfaces that One Direction is breaking up. Most recently, the fact that the guys didn't spend much time together in the months leading up to the BRIT Awards led some people to speculate that there could be a rift in the group.
Luckily Liam Payne is shooting down the breakup rumors — and has a very good explanation for what the boys have been up to lately. They've been working on songs separately, which is just part of the music making process!
"We're not splitting up, we're writing our next album," he told Capital FM. "People say we don't work hard and it's all a game and whatever."
"We just wanna make good music, and this album – honestly, every lad out there tonight who’s thinking One Direction are this and that," he continued. "Literally, next album – pick up our album and see what you feel."
Meanwhile Harry Styles was equally reassuring.
"We’re not breaking up," he told Metro. "We've spent every day together for months and I forgot what my mum looked like. It's just holidays... We're on WhatsApp messaging each other all the time, talking about song ideas and just funny stuff from our day."
"I miss the boys but if you don’t see your family you would go mad," he added.
Are you glad to hear that 1D's bond is stronger than ever? Are you as excited as we are for the boys to start rehearsals for their tour? Sound off in the comments!
