Jimmy Kimmel texted his niece about the One Direction break

Posted on


One Direction is taking a break “at some point next year.” And news of the band’s extended hiatus is devastating for any fan of the group, especially Jimmy Kimmel’s niece, Allison.

“She has all their birthday’s memorized. She definitely doesn’t know my birthday,” Kimmel said during Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday. The host then tried texting his niece to see how she was coping the band’s forthcoming hiatus.

“Now you can focus on your education,” Kimmel texted Allison. She responded with alcohol emojis and it only got worse from there.
