One Direction Splits with Longtime Tour Manager - Report

Harry Styles and Zayn Malik make their way out of the airport after arriving ahead of the 2014 Aria Awards on Wednesday (November 26) in Sydney, Australia.

The guys joined their One Direction band mates Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan, who touched down in the country the day before.

1D reportedly just split from their longtime tour manager Paul Higgins.

“There have been issues behind the scenes for a while, and they’ve finally come to a head leading to Paul‘s relationship with the band coming to an end,” a source told The Mirror. “In many ways he has completely run the show while they’ve been on tour – they even call him Daddy. He became a friend as well as a key part of their management set-up.”

The insider added, “He’s always been at the heart of the One Direction team, and it’s hard to think of them going on tour without him there.”

FYI: Zayn is wearing a Native Youth bomber jacket.

    “longtime tour manager!” They’ve been a boy singing group for all of 4 years! They aren’t a band! They’re a Simon Cowell project that got extremely lucky. Their popularity is baffling to me; a serious head scratcher.
