This comes after Horan, 22, denied rumors of a split in November. “We’re not breaking up,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “We’re literally taking time out to see our friends and see our family, and reflect on what we’ve done over the last few years.” 


Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Niall Horan of One Direction attend the BBC Music Awards at Genting Arena on December 10, 2015.

Not necessarily in front of a mic, though. “Liam is really interested in songwriting and production,” says a second insider. And Styles, 21, is looking toward the big screen. Adds the first source, “Harry is launching a career in acting and singing.”


As for Tomlinson, 24, he’s going to be busy as a first-time dad. As Us Weekly confirmed in July, the pop star is expecting a babywith stylist friend Briana Jungwirth.

The boy band, who got their start on the U.K.’s The X Factor in 2010, will still release a video for another song on their Made in the A.M. album.
