Was Lewis Capaldi ever in One Direction?

It's a question that die-hard fans and well-wishers want to know. After all, in the past, Lewis has made jokes and comments about reuniting the group. In fact, there was a time that Lewis's song "Pointless" went number one in the U.K.

"So many people have told me this song sounds like it should've been a One Direction song and now I'm thinking about all the money I could've made if only I had written it in 2014," he wrote in a TikTok video.

ABC also reported that the musical Scottsman told his pal Niall Horan, who is also a former One Direction frontman, to "round up the troops at once," but those words apparently didn't yield much results. Safe to say that Lewis wasn't a member of One Direction, after all. sigh!

Lewis is taking a break from music — here's why.

Beyond his music, Lewis has been known to be a down-to-earth personality and has been candid and vulnerable about his mental health struggles, particularly with Tourette Syndrome, a nervous system disorder involving repetitive movements. The syndrome is triggered in childhood and involves uncontrollable repetitive movements.

Lewis recently took to social media to share with fans that he wouldn't be touring "for the foreseeable future" because of the condition. Lewis's fans support him and only want what's best for him long term. We all wish him well in his journey both musically and personally.
