ICYMI: This past week has shaken up One Direction fans in a major way. Why? Because Liam Payne broke away from Modest! Management and signed his own solo record deal, that's why.
Quickly, #OneDirectionIsOver started trending all over Twitter, and fans were damn devastated.
BUT nobody was as salty towards Liam's decision than the founder of 1D himself, Simon Cowell.
"The great thing about all these boys - well not all of them but most of them - they are incredibly loyal and you don’t always expect that," Simon said to Yahoo.
Simon added: "Niall, Harry, Louis - amazing.”
AWKS. But it's all G guys, Simon has been feverishly asked about the comments so he's taken it upon himself to explain why he was shady McShade towards Liam.
"You know look, not everything goes your own way. I was a bit surprised, but you know I wish him well. He's a good guy," he told Access Hollywood.
People are now speculating Niall will be the next to announce a solo deal, within the next few weeks in fact.
We guess solo 1D members are better than no 1D at all, right?
