Liam Payne to Become Stateside Solo Star — What’s the Rest of One Direction Doing?

One Direction’s decision to take a “break” at the beginning of 2016 could be called controversial at best by their fans.

While everyone involved swore the “hiatus” wasn’t permanent, their increasingly important solo careers suggest something else is up.

Take a look at the gallery above to see the very separate directions the lads are going in — Liam Payne might become a dad-slash-American sensation, Louis Tomlinson already is a dad, and more.

David Beckham’s more youthful doppelganger is preparing to turn himself into a stateside pop star.

Liam, 23, just signed on as a solo artist with American label Republic Records and is expected to start making music ASAP.

On a more personal note, British tabloids are constantly questioning whether the hunk is expecting a baby with his older girlfriend, X Factor judge Cheryl.

The new dad has decided he’d rather be more Simon Cowell than 1D, and is managing a girl group in between feedings.

While the girl band’s official name hasn’t been released, it’s rumored they’re called Did Alice Call.

It’s also believed Louis, 24, has been fielding baby questions from Liam, adding fire to the speculation Cheryl is pregnant.

1D’s only Irish member also seems to be the only one convinced a reunion is around the corner, claiming, “It's in the foreseeable (future)," during a talk show appearance.

Still, the adorable blonde, 23, is taking care of his own career. Niall released his first solo single — titled “This Town” — just a few weeks ago.

He’ll also appear at iHeartRadio's NYC Jingle Ball in December.

Gigi Hadid’s boyfriend, 23, isn’t returning to 1D no matter what, but he’s too gorgeous not to mention.

The R&B star already has his first solo album under his belt and is now hard at work producing a boy band drama for NBC and penning his first autobiography.
