According to Daily Star insiders, Styles has become a "virtual stranger" to the rest of the band while they take a hiatus to spend time with their friends and family.
When One Direction does reunite in the near future, a source says the "atmosphere will be toxic.”
“The bad blood stems from the rest of the group’s suspicions that Styles is planning to go solo after four years in the band,” claims The Daily Star, adding cryptically:
“It’s as if Harry isn’t part of the group. It’s going to come to a head now because for the first time in months they are going to be spending every day together as they rehearse for this summer’s tour.”
The newspaper even alleges that Styles is "desperate to break into movies," although he's never made this assertion on record.
“The boys want reassurances from Harry that he’s in the group for the long haul," the insider concludes. "They won’t let him just use them for his own career ambitions. They want to know what’s really going on."
