One Direction's New Direction is to Breakup After 5years' Success


Finally the group One Direction who were formed on the UK X Factor in 2010 and have gone on to conquer the world - made the decision during crunch talks in London last weekend for each of the band members to go their separate ways for at least a year. But indications are that they will never come back again.

The boyband - comprised of Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson -
have reportedly decided to take at least a year out to focus on solo projects and will not tour their upcoming fifth album.

According to reports from The Sun newspaper UK, 'The guys have been together for five years, which is an incredible run for any boyband.
'They fully deserve to have at least a year to work on their own projects. There is absolutely no bad blood between them and they are all 100 per cent behind the decision.'
