Listen to One Direction on iHeartRadio

One Direction is denying the most recent wave of breakup rumors. 

The latest stem from a comment made by member Liam Payne last week on the red carpet at the BRIT Awards, where he said he hadn't seen his band mates in three months. 

In a new interview with U.K.'s "The Sun," the group explains they are simply spending much-needed time with their families after a worldwide tour that had them on the road for most of 2013. 

Harry Styles tells the paper that the boys had "spent every day together for months" and that "[he] forgot what [his] mom looked like." 

Liam adds that the guys have stayed in touch throughout the vacation, messaging back and forth about ideas for their next album and upcoming "Where We Are" tour.
