A new report claims to know exclusive details about the “timeline” of a One Direction reunion, but the story is entirely bogus. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this report.

HollywoodLife, which routinely claims to have insight into situations when it doesn’t, is now purporting to have the lowdown on when Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan plan on getting their band back together. The site quotes a supposed “British music insider” as saying, “In the future there’s a definite possibility of a reunion. But not for some time.”

The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to claim the group will “probably follow” in the footsteps of ’90s English pop band Take That, who reunited in 2006 after a decade apart. The “source” further says the members of One Direction will likely “wait a decade or so before considering touring or recording together once again.” Of course, this is all very vague and nonspecific, so Gossip Cop looked into the seemingly phony story.

A reliable source close to the situation assures us that no one with knowledge of One Direction’s future plans is speaking to HollywoodLife. The so-called reunion “timeline” is nothing but unreliable guesswork from the repeatedly discredited outlet. Perhaps the group will reunite in a decade, or perhaps sooner, but the webloid simply doesn’t have the answer. Of course, we’ve repeatedly debunked the website’s many inaccurate stories about the popular boy band, so this latest fabrication comes as no surprise.

Gossip Cop recently called out HollywoodLife for making up a story detailing Harry Styles’ supposed feelings about a One Direction reunion. We also busted the site for wrongly reporting Gigi Hadid was urging Zayn Malik to reunite with One Direction. Peculiarly, the webloid published that bogus story months after the group had already went on hiatus. This latest article is similarly unfounded.
