One Direction in management riddle

One Direction are at the centre of speculation they have parted from their management company after the British boyband's name was removed from a list of clients on the company's website.

Modest Management's online site contains a list of acts they represent, including Olly Murs and McBusted, but the What Makes You Beautiful hitmakers are no longer named on the roster.

The band recently became a four-piece after Zayn Malik quit last month (Mar15), insisting he wants to live like a "normal 22-year-old".

The remaining members have since said they plan to have a long career as a four-piece and are continuing with their current world tour, which resumes in June (15).
