Few bands have fans as obsessive as One Direction, so it’s no great surprise that even the smallest hint of the band’s reunion has sent their followers into total overdrive.
Despite announcing their hiatus earlier this year, a button labelled “future events” recently appeared on One D’s official website and fans are taking it as a major sign that their beloved Liam, Niall, Harry and Louis are planning to regroup.
It is unclear as to when exactly the button appeared, but according to The Express until recently the tour section of their site only included a “past events” section.
But just as a “ThisIsNotTheEndOfOneDirection” hashtag began to produce gold on Twitter, fans were floored as the “future events” button was once again deleted.

And as if that wasn't bad enough, it has now been reported that the lads could be headed for the Irish High Court.
While it is not yet known what the case relates to, the Irish Independent has reported that a County Louth law firm has issued action on behalf of a client named David Lewis in which all five of the band’s original members as well as three songwriters who worked on Story of My Life are named.
This news has further rocked the band’s so-called “fandom”.
