After Simon Cowell insinuated boy band One Direction may break up soon, the X Factor judge had to go on his Twitter to clarify his words, so that 1D fans didn't get angry.

Was The New One Direction Single Just Revealed By Producer Naughty Boy?

On Saturday, Cowell tweeted "Just to clear up the rumours it is my guess and my hope One D will stay together for a very long time. The boys are having the best time. And as I said recently their new album is really really good."

Cowell told The Daily Star on Tuesday about 1D, "Bands don't stay together forever. I think they will make at least two more albums together and they are in the middle of one right now." This sparked One Direction fan concern that their upcoming fourth album could be their last. It's supposed to come out sometime this fall. Cowell put together One Direction after they auditioned separately for X Factor in England.

When asked if One Direction's Harry Styles would go solo this year, Cowell said he didn't think so, however. "No, I don't think that is going to happen for a while," But, he did say about the group, "Eventually I am sure they all will."

One Direction is currently on their Where We Are world tour across North America with 5 Seconds of Summer. They'll be hitting up St Louis, MO on Wednesday before going to Chicago, IL Friday.
