It looks like the One Direction break is going to be heaps longer than we expected.

Music Mogul and the man who formed the band on the UK X-Factor, Simon Cowell has spoken out about the boys saying that their break is FAR from ending their hiatus any time soon.

Simon told Variety magazine ” I don’t think we’ll see as a group for a while now, if I’m being honest with you.”

While it doesn’t provide any answers as to whether they will be back, or whether they are breaking up, it does put an end to the rumours they were going to reunite for a performance on America’s Got Talent.

Initially the One D break up was supposed to be for just 18 months but following Zayn’s decision to leave, sources say it has lead to a domino effect amongst the other members, who are keen to move on.

Currently, Harry is developing his acting career, Niall is experimenting with new music, Louis has a new son and Liam is spending heaps of time with his new girlfriend Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

It looks like they all have too much on to make more bangers anytime soon.. but we still have our fingers crossed.
