One Direction NOT Breaking Up Over Liam Payne Solo Deal (EXCLUSIVE)
One Direction are still on a “break” and have not broken up, even though Liam Payne has now signed his own solo deal, Gossip Cop confirms. We’re told the guys are just “doing their own thing” for the time being.
As Gossip Cop reported, it was announced earlier on Thursday that Payne he had signed a solo record deal with Capitol Records. The singer and songwriter revealed in a series of tweets, “Happy to have signed to @CapitolUK. They have an amazing history of artists, I hope I can follow in their footsteps.” “One direction will always be my home and family but I’m very excited to see what this chapter brings,” he added in a second message on Twitter.
Not surprisingly, Payne’s tweets were analyzed and scrutinized by fans, with some interpreting them as the end of One Direction. Speculation that the band is done has further been compounded by the recent announcement that Harry Styles signed a solo record deal. But as Gossip Cop exclusively noted in late June, Styles’ record deal doesn’t mean One Direction is breaking up. We’re told the lads still plan to reunite at some point.
Nevertheless, fans convinced the group has now disbanded got the hashtag #OneDirectionIsOverParty to trend on Twitter. As Gossip Cop reported, one support tweeted, “What about 1D they promised and I’m honestly getting scared.” Meanwhile, another expressed, “Honestly just tell us if it’s over other then slowly dropping these bomb on us…it hurts more.”
Gossip Cop can confirm, however, there are no plans to break up. Our impeccable source tells us, “It remains the same as Harry… They are on a break and doing their own thing.”
