UPDATE: 1D SAYS "HIATUS" WON'T BE PERMANENT

Following People report that One Direction would be going on an "extended hiatus" starting in March, the band took to Twitter to assure fans the split was temporary.

 

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile, the U.K.'s Daily Mirror speculated that Harry Styles would nab a solo deal shortly into the break, citing a "Sony insider" who expressed the company's natural inkling to ink him.

The lads' next SYCO/Columbia album is due in November, with current single "Drag Me Down" now blowing up; People says the foursome will continue to promote the set through February.  

The story immediately ignited speculation about whether the band would be splitting up for good, though some observers recalled the marketing brilliance of another "four solo projects" hiatus.

Rumors that  Styles was fostering a solo career began to proliferate after the departure of Zayn Malik from the group last March.

Meanwhile, Joey Fatone had some sober advice for the group.
