Like the boy bands that came before them, Simon Cowell seems well aware that One Direction will probably break up one day.

“I think they will make at least two more albums together, and they are in the middle of one right now,” the music mogul is quoted as saying in a new interview.

Cowell, who put the group together on “The X Factor” in 2010, reportedly noted that “bands don’t stay together forever,” and acknowledged the likelihood that the guys may pursue solo careers “eventually.” “I don’t think that is going to happen for a while,” Cowell reportedly said.

Fans, however, are already taking the alleged remarks quite seriously, sending out mass tweets about the devastation they’ll feel with Direction-less lives. The community even made “#HalfAHeartWithoutOneDirection” into a worldwide trending topic on Monday morning.

And we’re sure the reported comments will be twist to sparked a dozen more sensational “Harry Styles Going Solo!” articles. So, let’s be clear: One Direction is NOT splitting any time soon.
