One Direction NOT BREAKING UP Because They Owe, They Owe …
One Direction is NOT breaking up — despite reports to the contrary — in fact, TMZ has learned, the group still has to complete 3 more albums under their contract.

Reports have been circulating that 1D is splintering — especially after Liam Payne said he hadn’t seen the other guys in months at the Brit Awards this week — but sources tell us, the D is remaining a package deal.
