It seems that ever since One Direction were formed, way back in their days on The X Factor, there have been continued rumours about the boyband splitting up, with plenty of suggestions as to which band member wants to leave and why. The bigger and more successful One Direction get, the more regular these One Direction split rumours become and they are showing no signs of going away.
Over the years we have heard rumours that Harry Styles is going to quit to become an actor, Louis Tomlinson is going to quit to become a football player, Liam Payne is going to quit to work on solo projects, and Niall Horan is going to quit to work with other artists. So, it is only fair then, that the latest One Direction split rumour is aimed at Zayn Malik, who is now rumoured to be quitting the band.
It has been claimed that Zayn Malik wants to quit One Direction as he wants to spend more time with his girlfriend Perrie Edwards, with the couple engaged and looking to get married in the future. There have also been suggestions that Zayn could make the move to Bollywood, where he is wanted to write and perform songs in some big Bollywood movies.
However, when the boys were questioned about the rumours, Harry Styles said, "Oh that's nice and light-hearted. If he is, he's not doing a very good job," while Liam Payne joked, "Yeah he's gone, he's on the next flight." Finally, Zayn added, "No, that's the first I've heard of that. I'm here, I'm fine, we're a band, we're a unit."
We never believed this rumour for a second and we will refuse to believe any One Direction split rumour unless it comes from the boys themselves.
