One Direction

NOT BREAKING UP

Because They Owe, They Owe ...

One Direction is NOT breaking up -- despite reports to the contrary -- in fact, TMZ has learned, the group still has to complete 3 more albums under their contract.

Reports have been circulating that 1D is splintering -- especially after Liam Payne said he hadn't seen the other guys in months at the Brit Awards this week -- but sources tell us, the D is remaining a package deal.

We're told the group's been writing songs separately ... but the solo writing is just part of the process -- and the guys eventually compare notes with each other to come up with final versions.

And they better do a lot of that ... we're told 1D still owes the label 3 records before they can even think about calling it quits. So, a break-up just isn't on the table.

Earlier today ... Harry Styles told the UK Sun a similar story -- saying the group was just taking time to visit family and will be rehearsing again soon.

The Wanted fans -- sorry, you're still S.O.L.

Are u kidding? That band isn't going to break up until they start looking older, chubby, bald and not hot anymore. And if one goes to rehab and gets arrested it's a wrap on that cash cow.

One of these guys lives down my street,you can tell where because every day theres at least 15 photos outside his house. They're not breaking up anytime soon. But they're probably tired of the press!

I actually like them a lot. They are nice gentlemen. They are way better than bieber ever was. They don't get in trouble with the law. I honestly have no problem with them.
