Looks like Niall Horan just made a HUGE decision about his solo career — and it's pretty unexpected!

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.

Look Away, Zayn Malik! Louis Tomlinson & Perrie Edwards Party Through The Morning Following The BRIT Awards!

Are Louis and Perrie sending Zayn a message?

Ouch. Zayn Malik might not want to see this.

Possibly reigniting their feud, former bandmate Louis Tomlinson was spotted with the PILLOWTALK singer's ex, Little Mix's Perrie Edwards, after the BRIT Awards on Wednesday night.

But before fans get any ideas, it seems the duo were just out as friends, as they were also at the Universal Music after-party with fellow Little Mixer Leigh-Anne Pinnock.

We can imagine Louis and Perrie have a few things in common though, considering they were both close to Zayn. Of course, as Gigi Hadid's boyfriend has said, "I guess certain phone numbers have changed."

Sad. At least both their splits didn't affect the musicians' friendship!

The Dr. will NOT see you now…

We thought American Idol would be prescribed a healthy dosage of music producer Dr. Luke as judge next season, but alas, it was not meant to be it appears!

According to a source, the doctor-who-would-be-judge had to back out due to a conflict of interest, and a busy schedule (aka too many patients).

Dr. Luke signed a deal with Sony Music back in 2011, which creates major issues since as judge on Idol he'd be working with and developing talent for Universal Music Group, which is direct competition with Sony.

In addition, a source also confirmed that Dr. Luke realized the time commitment would be too great:
