Ummm...Justin's manager, Scooter Braun, jumped in to clear things up before the rumor got off the ground, tweeting: "@justinbieber @RyanSeacrest @onedirection lol. April fools I guess"
And, for further clarification, there are no plans to replace Zayn in One Direction. Rumors of Simon Cowell developing a reality show to find a fifth member were shot down and TMZ reports that sources close to Simon and 1D's record label say there is "absolutely zero" talk of bringing another member on board. They will continue as a four-piece and are working on their next album.
