Rumors have been swirling that Liam Payne is working on songs without One Direction, collaborating with a '90s Britpop band called Longspigs on some solo tracks — but those reports are totally false.

The source is a publication that focuses on satirical celebrity gossip, so we don't think they're actually serious.

Besides, we'd never believe Liam would leave the band for his own personal projects. Even though he initially wanted to go solo on X Factor, he's been very vocal about the fact that he loves being in the band. If he was working on some stuff, it would either be for 1D or for his DJ alter-ego, Big Payno.

Do you think that Liam would ever go solo? Should he do more DJ-ing? Tell us what you think in the comments!
