Scoop: Is Harry Styles prepping to leave 1D?

Is One Direction’s main heartthrob Harry Styles set to become Britain’s answer to Justin Timberlake by going solo? Probably… but not quite yet.

There’s still far too much money to be made by 1D.

“It’s complete nonsense,” a rep for Styles told the Daily Mail.

If Scoop! had to look into its crystal ball, it would see the beginnings of a PR machine planting seeds for his eventual departure.

Boy bands have about a five-year shelf life, and from there only one person typically successfully splits off and thrives. (Note: ’N Sync). The rest of the guys are usually left with fond memories and bad haircuts. Sunrise, sunset.
