The noisy romances of One Direction after 3 years going solo
One Direction is a famous boy band consisting of 5 members: Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. They signed with Syco Records after winning the third spot of British X Factor season 7 in 2010. After 6 years of operation, One Direction officially disbanded. The band's two most impressive albums were "Up All Night" and "Take Me Home", with huge hits like "What Makes You Beautiful", "Live While We're Young", "Little Things", "Story of My Life"...
Zayn Malik was the first member to split the group to pursue a solo career. Experts said that it was his wise decision, because before the 26-year-old singer once shared he did not sing the music he liked when he was a piece of One Direction. In 2016, he released his first single "Pillowtalk", which ranked No. 1 in both Billboard 100 and UK Singles Chart. Last year, Malik released the "Icarus Falls" album, drawing attention to remarkable songs like "Let Me", "Entertainer", "Sour Diesel"...
Malik dated Victoria's Secret Angel Gigi Hadid from the end of 2015. The famous beauty even appeared in the singer's "Pillowtalk" MV as well as a cover image with her boyfriend on Vogue magazine in August 2017. They joined a campaign for Versace while Hadid was a photographer. In March 2018, both announced their breakup but reunited shortly thereafter. Previously, Malik once had another romance with Little Mix's Perrie Edwards. He was even said to be the boy behind Little Mix's hit "Shout Out To My Ex".
After a year of disbanding, Harry Styles released his first single, "Sign of the Times", which was followed by his album in May 2017. The songs with rock colors in this album were highly appreciated by professionals, giving the 25-year-old voice huge revenue. In 2018, he had no outstanding products. In addition to singing, Styles also took part in acting. He joined Christopher Nolan's World War II blockbuster "Dunkirk".
During the past 3 years, he was seen staying overnight at stylist Pandora Lennard's house, dating chef Tess Ward for a while and having a 1-year romance Victoria's Secret Angel Camille Rowe. In January 2019, The Sun reported that Styles was in love with Japanese model Kiko Mizuhara. But both still have not confirmed this information.
Liam Payne found his place in the music industry with regular product launches. He signed with Republic Records in 2016 and after just one year, the singer released "Strip That Down" single in collaboration with Ed Sheeran. This song reached number three on the UK singles chart and ranked 10th on the US Billboard Hot 100. Last year, the 25-year-old singer released other songs "For You" ("Fifty Shades Freed" soundtrack), "Familiar", "First Time" and was popular with music lovers.
The former One Direction member had a deep love affair with singer Cheryl Cole, who is 12 year older than Payne. They broke up in July 2018 after two years together and had a child together, Bear Gray Payne. Recently, Liam Payne in love with supermodel Naomi Campbell. Campbell is also 23 year older than the "For You" singer.
Niall Horan is the only Irish member of the band. He had a very successful solo career after releasing single "This Town" - which took the No. 9 spot on the UK charts and No. 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. Apart from singing, he was also known for musical composition. While in One Direction, Horan wrote lyrics for "Story of My Life" and "Night Changes".
In terms of love story, Niall Horan seem to be little quieter than other boys of 1D. The 25-year-old singer was in love with a girl named Celine Helene Vandycke in 2016. By 2018, Mail On Sunday confirmed that Horan had a romance with actress Hailee Steinfeld. But they broke up after a year of dating.
Louis Tomlinson was the oldest member of One Direction. After the group disbanded, he didn't make many music products. Tomlinson has only a few singles like "Just Hold On" (in collaboration with Steve Aoki), "Back To You", "Miss You"... and has achieved certain achievements. In 2018, he was invited to take part in the British X Factor. And Dalton Harris - the contestant whose mentor was Tomlinson - was the champion of the season.
In 2016, the singer suddenly announced that he had children with his ex-girlfriend Briana Jungwirth. He shared this happiness on Twitter. After Jungwirth, Louis Tomlinson is dating the beautiful model Eleanor Calder.
