2NE1 fans went into panic mode last night when a gossip outlet reported that the group will no be returning to the charts any time soon and are planning to split up.
Korea's Chic News claimed to have spoken to a YG Entertainment insider, who told the website, "YGE is planning to disband 2NE1. The company is busy preparing for CL's American promotions and Dara will move into acting."
But a spokesman for the group tells IdolWow!, "The report is absurd... The group is not splitting up."
In fact, says a source close to the band, the group will make time away from their solo projects later this year for a 2NE1 comeback. "The story is nonsense," adds the source. "They have no plans to break up. It's a stupid story. They will have a comeback in 2015."

It's not the first time the group has been rumoured to split. In October, fans speculated an end could be near after Minzy removed mentions of 2NE1 from her Twitter profile (it has since been added again).
