I’ve seen a lot of discussion by people claiming there is no way that OT3 didn’t know that Harry was going solo.
The question isn’t whether they knew, the question is if they knew to what extent he was going to roll out his career. Do you think they knew he was embracing his golden boy image? Do you think they knew he would get his album and output hyped for over a year, denigrating his output in 1D? Do you think they knew he and his team would continue to push H v OT3? Do you think they knew he would gladly accept accolades and opportunities that he did not earn?
Do you think they expected him to launch himself with an advert, a finished album, two tours, a new band that he gets to front?
I don’t believe they were as blindsided as most of us. But I absolutely do not think they knew the extent of his plans. You don’t disclose your launch strategy to your former employer or place of business, which in Harry’s case is/was 1D.
