It was way back in 2010 that the British boyband One Direction began on their journey to becoming the biggest boyband on the face of the planet, and arguably the biggest boyband of all time. Along the way, there have been a lot of different split rumours going around but it looks like One Direction could actually be on the verge of falling apart.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that One Direction member Zayn Malik had decided to quit the boyband, leaving the other four to continue on together. We know for a fact that One Direction will continue on as a four piece for the rest of their On the Road Again world tour, while we also expect that they will release another album but what after that.
One Direction have had five long, hard working and very successful years together, making household names of the five boys, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and of course Zayn Malik. While the four remaining members have insisted that they have no plans to split any time soon, it could just be words said to keep the fans onside.
Zayn Malik quitting One Direction was a huge step and, while we would love to see One Direction continue on for many more years, we can't help but think that it is only a matter of time before one of the other lads decides to call it a day too. A One Direction split would be devastating to many people around the world but it is going to happen eventually.
When do you think One Direction will split?
