One Direction may have split up permanently, Simon Cowell has admitted.
The boys then announced they would all be taking a break but it could be an infinite one.
In a new interview with America's Billboard Magazine, Simon confessed that One Direction may never get back together.
Speculating about the future of the now four piece, Simon said: "I don't know if it's a hiatus, or a break up, to be honest."
He added: "In a weird way, I don't want to know. I don't think they've had enough time to experience what it's like not being in a group to really answer that."
Whatever happens, there are no plans for 1D's members to disappear with all of them working on individual projects including music and TV.
There's rumours that Louis Tomlinson could become a judge on this year's X Factor although he said recently that no official conversations had taken place yet.
As for their future together? We guess time will tell but it's been an awesome five years.
