If this is true, it is absolutely crazy!

For a band named after a single direction, they sure do go their separate ways a lot…
Well, that's exactly what he did very early Thursday morning when he suspiciously favourited a hopeful tweet from a fan, reading:
Directioners never say die!
But despite all four members diving into solo projects, their loyal fanbase started a social media frenzy on Tuesday when it appeared that the chart-topping boyband might actually be reuniting!
That's because for some reason or other, the band's website added a "future events" tab to its tour page — and 1D fans went totally ballistic!
The possibility that Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan would be performing sometime in the near future was enough to send fans into hyperdrive, generating the hashtag #ThisIsNotTheEndOfOneDirection.
Unfortunately, the excitement was short lived as the mysterious tab was removed from the website shortly after it appeared. Ugh!
Ch-ch-check out the best Twitter reactions to the fake announcement (below)!
Earlier in the week, the America's Got Talent judge dished to reporters his true feelings about his lack of involvement in the 1D members' careers since announcing their hiatus. Awkward!
The industry vet dished:
Looks like Niall Horan just made a HUGE decision about his solo career — and it's pretty unexpected!
Everyone long thought that he'd work with Simon Cowell and Syco on his next record deal, but the former One Direction star has majorly flipped the script — and signed with Universal Music, according to media reports!
Horan, 22, has reportedly now followed in the footsteps of former bandmates Harry Styles and Liam Payne with his solo deal, which appears to be a "big money" offer in the surprising jump to Universal.
The company — which lost out on Harry — didn't waste any time by making a HUGE offer to Niall to pull him right out from under Cowell's nose, with a source saying:
According to reports, the Like I Would singer is set to write an explosive memoir about his time in the chart-topping boyband, and will be blowing the lid off his former bandmates' clean image!
The 23-year-old, who spent more than five years with the band, will allegedly talk about his more WILD experiences with Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Harry Styles in the new tell-all! Yikes!
Apparently, 1D's boss Simon Cowell will be "furious" with the book, as it intends to shatter the illusion of the 1D's PG image. A source told the Daily Mail on Sunday newspaper:
On Monday, the Irish popstar slammed a fan on Twitter for snapping a pic of him while he was sleeping on his flight from London to Chicago.
Reposting their caption and snap, he shared his disdain:
We all knew this was coming, we just didn't know when!
While it's not 100% official that 1D is breaking up, most people on Twitter are already reacting to the news and it didn't take long for #OneDirectionIsOverParty to start trending!
However, we're not quite sure if "party" is the right word for it because most people seemed pretty bummed out:
