There were a lot of devastated One Direction fans recently, when a rumour emerged claiming that One Direction singer Harry Styles was looking to leave the British boyband and go off on his own with a solo career. The rumours began to spread when Harry was spotted heading into the recording studio with rockers Kodaline, who made some intriguing comments about their jam session.
Frontman Steve Garrigan was talking to Digital Spy, when he explained, "He just turned up to a show, and he likes our music. We had a bit of free time and so we went to the studio and wrote a song. It was good fun. (The track) could be on his album if he does something, but I don't know. Nothing is set in stone."
However, a spokesperson for One Direction has now spoken out to quash these rumours, "There are no plans for Harry to release any solo music at this time, any writing that he is doing is for potential One Direction songs. It's common knowledge that the boys write separately and bring to each other for the album," the rep explained.
This is not the first time that there have been rumours of a One Direction split, with other members of the boyband going off to work on solo material in the past. Over the years we have seen Niall Horan head off and work with fellow boyband McFly, while Liam Payne has previously been in the studio with Pharrell Williams. Fortunately for One Direction fans though, the boys are still very much together.
Who do you think will eventually be the first member to leave One Direction?
