One Direction fans had an emotional weekend after rumors of a possible break up began to surface. The rumors began after band member Liam Payne told the press, following last week's Brit Awards, that he hadn't seen his bandmates in months. Payne's statement led many to believe that there had been a rift amongst the boys.
However, band member Harry Styles debunked the rumors rather quickly. According to Yahoo, the singer informed print publication, The Sun, that the boys simply needed time apart to spend time with their families:
"We're not breaking up. We've spent every day together for months and I forgot what my mum looked like. It's just holidays. I miss the boys but if you don't see your family you would go mad"
According to TMZ, the One Direction boys are still contracted to produce three more albums, making a break up nearly impossible. This comes as a sigh of relief for the passionate fans of the boys who are all looking forward to the group's 2014 world tour.
