    Harry Styles Not Going Solo: Reports of Singer Leaving One Direction Are "Complete Nonsense," Rep Says

    Don't worry, fans: Harry Styles won't be going off in his own direction any time soon.

    The One Direction stud's camp has shot down claims that the 19-year-old U.K. singer is planning to step away from the hit boy band this coming year to work on a solo project, telling The Daily Mail that the reports are "complete nonsense, of course."

    Additionally, the rep tells E! News, "There is no truth to this, the sold out One Direction world tour kicks off in April."

    The denial stems from a recent article which has a source saying, "Harry really wants to record his own stuff and put out in album now that this one is done. Trust me, he's going to do it."

    This isn't the first time Styles was the center of such rumors. In April of this year, media reports had claimed again that Harry had written several of his own tunes and was even recording solo songs for an album without his fellow One Direction crooners.

    "The boys are all working on the new 1D album together and sometimes sessions are recorded separately," the rep clarified at the time, after explaining that there was "no truth" to the story.

    However, Harry does draw from his personal life when it comes to writing songs for the band. "I think when you're writing songs, it's impossible to not draw on personal experiences, whether it be traveling or girls or anything. Just emotions," he told E! News.

    "You're always going to write and draw inspiration from things that you're feeling, things that you've felt," he noted, adding, "It's kind of impossible not to unless you're writing a song and there's an exact scenario that you're trying to write a song for."

    Styles and the 1D gang recently wrapped their huge world tour and were busy promoting the band's third studio album, Midnight Memories, which was officially released last month. The group's flick One Direction: This Is Us is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on Dec. 17.
