The Wanted

Breaks Up!!!

It's curtains for The Wanted after their upcoming tour -- the boy band just announced they're breaking up as soon as it's over.

The group just released a statement, saying, "This tour will be their last for a while as Tom, Max, Jay, Siva and Nathan have collectively decided to take time to pursue personal endeavours following the tour's conclusion."

Sources close to the group say Max and Nathan have already started solo projects ... and we're told Nathan decided he wanted out after collaborating with Ariana Grande on "Almost Is Never Enough."

The Wanted formed in 2009 and released their debut album in 2010, which included hits like "Glad You Came" and "All Time Low." Their upcoming Word of Mouth tour is set to wrap in May.

The statement goes on to say that "The Wanted" will continue to exist ... just not actively ... which is management speak for "That's all, folks!"

So we gotta ask ...

They did not break up, they are taking a BREAK. Do not read everything TMZ posts, sometimes they are accurate, sometimes they are not. It's like the News, it can be one sided or bias. Of course there are people who may not know The Wanted. And there are people who simply continuously hate and they may even know them, but who wants to be judged. I know the whole freedom of speech and I believe people have the right to express their opinion, but I always find it interesting; if not funny, that people who are not fans can say some negative things and post on that person page or information on them. It would appear they may be more of a fan than actual fans. I am a fan of The Wanted and I expressed my opinion like everyone else. Thank you and everyone have a great day.

I think they were managed by Scooter and have opened for Justin B more than once. They were ok, but not big time. They had no class and acted liked thugs at times always wanting to fight One Direction the Other boy band. They were SO jealous of their success it was funny. How do I know so much. I got bored and watched their "E" reality show. lol

I'm thinking they're just taking a break. It's a common thing among music groups. And although I LOVE The Backstreet Boys to death, why are they in the photo gallery? Might wanna fix that lol.
