Just hours after Zayn Malik released a statement announcing his departure from the boyband, we’ve learned that Styles is also thinking about making the transition into a solo career.

An insider tells E! News, “Harry has told his friends that he wants to get into acting. He loves Los Angeles.”

Styles has also been working on some solo music projects. “He’s been writing with other artists like Meghan Trainor, Kodaline and Ariana Grande,” the source adds.

While figuring out his future, another insider says, “Harry has distanced himself from the rest of the band over the last year. He considers himself to be on a different path to the other boys.”

The source continues, “He certainly has hopes of doing solo stuff, branching out on his own, and so this might be the natural juncture in which to do that.”

Meanwhile, after several months of speculation, Malik gave his goodbye to the band today, and though the boys all said they support his decision, that didn’t stop the emotions from running at a concert today. Watch Styles cry while performing after news broke about Malik:
