The 24-year-old singer quit the boy band in March 2015 before they went on a hiatus, but since departing the Drag Me Down hitmakers he has not spoken to Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan or Harry. Zayn – who is in a relationship with model Gigi Hadid – previously opened up about his struggles with an eating disorder while in One Direction, but these days he insists he’s in a better place.
When it was first announced that Briana Jungwirth was pregnant with Louis Tomlinson’s baby following a one night stand she was insistent that she wanted her life to remain private.
It is well-known among One Direction fans that Louis Tomlinson is a patron or ambassador for a whole load of charities and spends a whole lot of his time (and money) doing whatever he can to help those less fortunate than him. Sarah Hext is the mother of one of the children who the 24-year-old singer has helped during his time in the spotlight, and following a load of negative press she decided to speak up and shed some light on Louis’ true nature - and be warned, you might need a few tissues for this one. Sarah is the mother of twin boys, Harvey and Spencer, who were born in 2006 with Down Syndrome.
Last month, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles took to their Twitter pages to thank the dedicated One Direction fans who clubbed together to take out an A4 advert in Billboard magazine that congratulated the boys on the release of their fifth studio album, Made In The AM, and reassured them that we’ll all still be here after their well-deserved 2016 break.
Harry Styles allegedly had a secret romance with the Pussycat Dolls star when he was just 19. The fling is believed to have started in late 2013 when Nicole was on a break from Lewis Hamilton and Harry was blown away by the now 37-year-old Hawaiian when they hung out at the X Factor final. They were said to be “wildly flirting” at a Brits party not long after with a source telling the Sun: “It was very clear there was electric chemistry between them and something had gone on.” “They were openly all over each other.”
Forget every other mystery in the history of the world, what we are really, desperately, dying to know is what the ‘eck is going on with Rainbow Bondage Bear and Sugar Baby Bear at One Direction’s shows? Although nobody has any concrete evidence on who is dressing the bears each night, it has been widely speculated that Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson are the boys behind them - and with their drummer, Josh Devine, posing for pics with the stuffed toys backstage but denying any involvement with their placement each night, we are convinced that it is at least one member of the famous fourpiece. After the bears appeared last night, holding a pamphlet about couples’ train fares and posing next to a framed photo of a hard-to-identify drag queen, a fan took to her Twitter account to reveal that she’d asked security who was in the pic, only to be told the surprising news.
Okay, this stuff with Rainbow Bondage Bear is frazzling our minds more and more by the day, but last night really took the biscuit when another official page for the rainbow stuffed toy appeared on Twitter. For those at the back, Rainbow Bondage Bear and his small little pal, Sugar Baby Bear, appear to be the mysterious One Direction mascots who have been appearing at random shows as though they are trying to tell the fans something about what’s going on behind the scenes for over a year. In the last couple of weeks alone the toys have been positioned next to a framed photo of closeted TV personalities Larry Grayson and John Inman, as well as Liberace and Quentin Crisp.
If you recall, just last week we were lucky enough to welcome One Direction back to the UK as they performed an intimate first London gig at the Apple Music Festival, supported by Little Mix.
In case you missed our entire STREAM of tweets on Tuesday night (erm, sorry about that), we were lucky enough to pop along to Apple Music Festival to watch One Direction, supported by Little Mix, perform LIVE. 1D performed in Camden’s Roundhouse Theatre, which has a capacity of just 1,700 people, and the intimate venue meant that we were able to get up, close, and personal to the boys as they performed their socks off for our viewing pleasure. From our location in the venue, we spotted none other than YouTubers Alfie Deyes and Louise Pentland, also in attendance were Olly Murs, Selena Gomez, and Suki Waterhouse.
“So I said, ‘Okay, Harry and Louis on my left please and Liam and Niall on my right’, and they got in their places. “Then Liam was right next to me, and then Niall and Louis on the outsides. Then I said, ‘Okay, so can we please ALL hold hands please… And kind of hold them up’, and there was a a slight pause and my sis, who was taking pics, said Louis looked hesitant and nervous at first to take Harry’s hand.
Put those hankies away and wash those tear-stained faces, reports that One Direction are set to ‘disband’ in March 2016 are nowhere near as sinister - or as disheartening- as they sound. Earlier tonight it was reported by The Sun that Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan were planning on ‘disbanding’ exactly one year after Zayn Malik sensationally quit the group - but the small print reads that they are just going on an “extended hiatus of at least twelve months”.
