Were his One Direction bandmates as forgiving though? HollywoodLife.com reports that they teased him over the rumors – and this is one piece of gossip that we can believe.
A source told HollywoodLife: "Harry thought it would be funny if he had the whole band act like Niall was out of the band and started talking to him and treating him like he was in the past tense, they ran with it all day."
The insider added: "They were texting him to come back to the band and making joke decisions that didn't involve him. They all had a pretty fun laugh about it. They aren't breaking up and they wanted to treat the news as it was a complete joke."
Do you think the 1D guys really pranked Niall about the rumor?
