This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Get those dollar bills, boys!
Why, you ask??!
Well, the bromantic duo write many of the fellas' hit songs, which could earn them 9% of the royalties from 1D's $100 million worth!
And Liam has confimed that he and his writing buddy are working on EVEN MORE material.
”Louis and I have a little partnership going on. We've been pretty keen to start writing straight away … I've been in the studio already, it's been going really well. Learning how to write is the best way of ensuring your career has longevity and that you have control over it. I really think the next album is going to be a game-changer for us. I'm excited.”
Liam and Louis totally deserve a little more if they're responsible for hits like Midnight Memories!
We just can't imagine how much more eargasmic their music can get, but we're willing to wait and find out!
