Well, this is enlightening!
We realize their once relatively equal rivalry with One Direction had devolved into a Harlem Globetrotters/Washington Generals-esque lopsided contest, but being second best at a thing is no reason to quit that thing, right?!
So why did they throw in the towel? Why now? Was it really to "pursue personal projects"?
Will Jay McGuiness return to school so he can study up to become a world-class archaeologist?
Is Nathan Sykes going home for good because he's tired of sleeping in hotel rooms on the road every night & eating mediocre room service?
Maybe Siva Kaneswaran decided he'd try his hand at fanfic writing and plans to start by penning a Larry Stylinson masterpiece!!
As it turns out, all of those guesses are way off! Max George revealed the real reason for The Wanted's break-up and, honestly, it surprised us!
We feel like they're breaking up with us in an "it's not you, it's us" style!
It looks like fans will have to say goodbye to Siva Kaneswaran, Max George, Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness, and Tom Parker as a group, for now!
The Wanted has officially announced that they'll be taking a break "for a while" to pursue personal projects after their U.S. Word of Mouth Tour wraps!
Hey, at least they didn't cancel it all together like the European leg!
The boys sugar-coated the important announcement by saying they'll be debuting their new single and music video for Glow In The Dark off of the group's latest album - but that barely cushions the blow.
In a statement on the site, a rep for the band explained:
Well, this is shocking…
Actually, Jai was never Nariana's biggest fan since she supposedly dumped him for Nathan back in September.
Jai told Us Weekly:
This interview must sting extra-hard for Nariana fans!
Post-breakup #sadsies, for realz!
The Way singer revealed adorbable deets about her spectacular first date with The Wanted cutie…which is now a distant memory:
What a sad, sad day for Nariana lovers!
It looks like we can double confirm Ariana Grande is officially back on the market!
We're getting more news about the songstress parting ways with her beau, Nathan Sykes, after she hinted that the two were just friends!
A source said of the once blossoming relationship:
Looks like fans of The Wanted across the Atlantic won't be able to say "I'm glad you came" in whatever Romance language they speak, because they just cancelled their European mainland tour!
The boy band posted the sad news on their website:
"To all our fans in mainland Europe, we’re really sorry but due to some unforeseeable changes in our scheduling, we’re having to cancel our European tour dates in February/March. Rest assured all tickets are refundable, and we do hope to see you again really soon! The UK, Ireland & US legs of the tour are not affected. Thanks for your ongoing support. Lots of love, The Wanted xx”
At least good ole U. S. of A. will be getting exactly what we Wanted!
Although they mentioned that the cancellation was due to "scheduling," they sent out another explanation on their Twitter:
