It was not too long ago that One Direction were the biggest boyband on the face of the Earth and could do no wrong in the eyes of millions of fans around the world. However, over the course of the past few months, we have seen the British boyband beginning to slowly but surely fall from grace, with a number of controversial issues taking place within the band.
At the start of the year, One Direction star Zayn Malik decided that the time was right to quit the boyband and pursue his own projects, while more recently it was revealed that Louis Tomlinson is set to become a father for the first time. With all that has happened this year and with all that is going on, there have now been talks of the band taking a bit of a break.
It has been claimed that, when the baby is born, Louis Tomlinson will want to take some time out to spend with his first child, and that the band would take some time off until he was ready to return. It sounds very much like this could be the next step towards a One Direction split, despite the fact that the boyband have insisted that they will stay together for a few more years yet.
With all that said, there is a new One Direction album coming our way, which would result in a new One Direction tour, so we cannot see the boys splitting up any time soon and, if Louis Tomlinson was to take it break, it would no doubt be a very short one indeed. One Direction are still the biggest boyband on the planet and will be for as long as they stay together.
