Are One Direction breaking up? Simon Cowell comments on the likely future breakup of the band, branching into solo careers, while Louis Tomlinson gives a date for their split. Are One Direction heading for a breakup and solo careers?
Simon Cowell thinks so!
In a new interview with Billboard magazine, Simon predicts, "Eventually they probably will split and up and maybe want to have their own careers."
He added, "The choice is theirs, and we've got the opportunity to do both. But from what I hear, they're really enjoying what they're doing and we don't feel there's anything seriously wrong here. They're getting more time off and I hope they stay a band for a long time."
It doesn't sound like a split is in the near future, however, as Liam noted, "We just love what we're doing right now. We've got no intention to change that."
In a recent Australian interview, Louis Tomlinson commented on One Direction staying together for quite awhile, saying, "We're having a great time."
He did have a prediction for their breakup date, joking, "It's gonna be on the 31st of March, 2072 on Mars."
