Liam Payne tells fans that One Direction aren’t splitting up
One Direction will definitely continue as a fourpiece, band member Liam Payne has confirmed on Twitter.
Speaking to fans yesterday evening (Thursday March 26th), Payne said: “In light of recent events I think this is important to say. For the past five years now, I’ve been part of something so special I don’t think any of us really understand, something that can mean the world to people and put a smile on the face of our fans even in the darkest times.
“To a lot of people, it’s just a bunch of silly kids in a band but to the people involved it means so much more. This last week has been some of the worst times, possible the worst, it’s some we are all deeply saddened by.
“it’s sad to think for the time being we won’t grace the stage as five bros or have the same fun on a tour bus or laughs in a hotel together that we have [had] over the years, but I’m super sure us and Zayn will always remain the closest of friends. I guess what I’m really trying to say is it’s far from over.”
Malik revealed his decision to leave the massively successful pop group earlier this week, after previously pulling out of the band’s tour of Asia citing stress as the reason.
One Direction released their most recent album ‘Four’ in November of last year.
