Simon Cowell Doesn't Know if One Direction is Done for Good

Simon Cowell flies into the wind while riding a jet-ski during vacation on Tuesday (August 25) in Capri, Italy.

The 55-year-old X Factor UK judge recently opened up about One Direction‘s split and whether he thinks it will be permanent.

“I don’t know if they’re going to split up to be honest with you, Simon told Yahoo UK. “Even though they were young, that was a grueling schedule and after a while I could see they were exhausted so when they asked how I felt about it I said for them to do whatever they want. I’ve known for a while that they were going to take 2016 off, and they had to on their workload.”

He continued, “I said, ‘Make your own decisions, I hope you stay together but you’ve got to want to do it for yourselves.’ But they’re smart guys and they’ll work it out.”

Liam Payne has taken to his Twitter account to slam reports that he is homophobic after he made a comment during one of his recent One Direction concerts that was misconstrued.

“This is my favorite song off the last album, and it is about trying to find that number one woman of your life, which none of you can relate to, ’cause most of you are girls. Except for the boys in here, you know what I’m talking about,” the 21-year-old singer reportedly told the crowd while introducing the song “Girl Almighty.”

“lol think some people take things to literal these days not gunna comment on it anymore you guys know what I meant it was meant in general,” Liam later tweeted. “I am in no way shape or form homophobic that’s a ridicules thing to say and I’m not here to offend people so take it as you will.”
