In January, a source told ET that despite all the speculation that the band has officially called it quits, the foursome are not permanently splitting.
"There's no truth to this," the source said. "[Their break] remains a hiatus with the intention of reuniting at some point."
ET caught up with One Direction last November, when they themselves set the record straight surrounding their status as a band.
"We're not breaking up," Niall Horan said bluntly. "We're literally taking time out to see our friends and see our family and reflect on what we've done over the last few years."
"I think it's important for us to take the break and have it as a break," Styles added. "Obviously, it would be naive of us to think that people aren't going to read into that in a ton of different ways, but we're just gonna take a little break next year."
