One Direction Latest: Niall Horan Single Is A Hoax, Liam Payne Engaged?

Many fans of One Direction do not know which way to turn at the moment. Day after day, fans are bombarded with claims that One Direction members’ solo plans mark the end of the world’s most loved band. Yesterday it was reported in The Inquisitr that claims that Harry Styles new solo deal may prove to be great news for One Direction fans. Harry has signed with Columbia Records for his solo work, and Columbia is the label that released all five of One Direction’s hit albums. Whilst Styles has moved away from One Direction’s management in recent months, that in no way implies that Styles is done with One Direction.

It is bizarre how every piece of news about various band members solo projects leads to claims that One Direction are history. The facts are clear, One Direction are not distancing themselves from their management teams. Louis Tomlinson is reportedly to be Simon Cowell’s “right-hand” on the new season of America’s Got Talent. Niall Horan has set up a sports management company in partnership with Modest Management, One Direction’s management team. Harry Styles could have chosen any record label on the planet but chose to stay with One Direction’s label. Whilst many One Direction fans would love to see the band under new, and more sympathetic management, the signs are that this is not on the cards.

Yesterday saw many One Direction fans in a spin after it emerged that Niall Horan was set to release a single as early as next week. According to J-14 a post appeared on indie outfit Oh Honey’s Facebook page claiming that they were set to release a single that features One Direction singer Horan. Predictably that led to claims that Horan had quit One Direction. Movie News Guide was one of those leading with the claims that Styles and Horan’s solo music spelled the end for One Direction.

Fans would be forgiven for thinking that some media outlets just do not understand that One Direction are on hiatus. That break was announced back in August and it was made very clear that the boys wanted some time out to explore solo projects. Why then are people seemingly surprised when a member of One Direction does exactly what they said they wanted to do?

Even more frustratingly for One Direction fans claims that Horan was set to release a single in collaboration with Oh Honey appear to have been a hoax. According to Unreality TV, Oh Honey removed the post from their Facebook page and replaced it with one that said their account had been hacked. Doubtless, claims will now emerge that Oh Honey were hacked by One Direction fans.

UK tabloid the Sun is rarely far for a One Direction rumor and once again they enter the realms of wild speculation. They report that Liam Payne has bought Cheryl Fernandez-Versini “a huge black diamond and ruby ring.” Interestingly, they point out that it is Cheryl’s birthday this week and then go on to claim that they may have a double celebration if the ring is meant as an engagement ring as well as a birthday gift. They offer not a single shred of evidence to support that claim, not even the Sun’s legendary “unnamed source close to One Direction” gets a mention.

The Daily Mail shares a more light-hearted One Direction story with us today, as they reveal that Harry Styles has a 15-year-old Texan doppelganger. Bailey Davila is apparently stopped in the street by One Direction fans who are convinced that they have just bumped into heart-throb Harry. Apparently, Bailey’s friends and family noticed his resemblance to the One Direction singer when he decided to grow his hair last year. Bailey claims that he does not listen to One Direction’s music, but he does write songs and is learning to play guitar.
