Louis Tomlinson Reveals Why Friendship with Zayn Malik Ended

Louis Tomlinson is revealing what happened between him and Zayn Malik.

The 27-year-old singer opened up in a recent interview that his relationship with his 26-year-old former One Direction band mate went south after Zayn didn’t show up to Louis2016 X Factor UK performance of “Just Hold On,” which was a tribute to his late mother Johannah Deakin – who had just died of Leukemia.

“Truthfully, [our relationship] never really got better,” Louis told The Dan Wootton Interview podcast. “I had a couple of calls with him after I lost my mum and all the boys had agreed to come to that performance and he didn’t show so that really bugged me.”

One Direction band mates Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan all attended the performance to show their support, but Zayn was a no-show.

“It was just seeing everyone there – Harry, Niall, and Liam — that was what I needed that night, that support,” Louis shared while adding he still hopes Zayn is doing “alright.”

    They just wont let the guy go. They used him like a prop most of his life, held him back from being his own voice and now they just refuse to let him go. Who is this guy to think he was a friend? we all remember how Zayn was treated by all of them.

    Lol get a life Zayn

  • dee

    girl please. he never wanted part of 1D from the beginning. now that hes free, he doesnt feel like he owes them anything. which is FINE. but shitty. he spent 5 years making a name for himself with this band, the least he could do was come see him during his performance which he couldnt even do… theres are no excuses. he would have nothing without 1D. and thats the truth. dont be butt hurt that zayn is a dick.

  • DeadP001

    Wait so…. if Im Zayn that means my girlfriend is Gigi Hadid?! HELL YES!

  • DeadP001

    He has every right to be a dick thats my point. He doesnt owe anyone jack. He paid his dues with 5 years of being a prop.

    Ok, but his “work colleague’s” (or whatever you wanna call it) mom passed away, don’t be a dick and at least attend the thing. It’s a shitty way to cut all ties, he doesn’t have to attend every single thing an ex band member does, but not showing up for this (unless he had a really valid excuse) is a shitty thing to do IMO

    Where does it state we have an obligation to attend peoples funerals of the parents of past co-workers that you dont even talk to much less see anymore?

    If you get invited to it and dont go it makes some sense but to expect people to show up just because you once worked with them is ridiculous.

    Nope they broke up months ago.

    He’s somewhere in a dark room masterbating to Pornhub, not making music and apparently writing in random message boards.

    It is just bad that Zayn doing like that…

  • Nithiya

    I miss when they are separated..

  • dee

    LOL, Ok?? But you might as well say that about all 5 of them then…?? And in any case, seems like were on the same page about Zayn being a dick.

  • dee

    its NOT an obligation, thats the WHOLE point. its simply a basic human decency, these 5 kids went through something together that cant be compared to anyone else, they might had a falling out or wtvr, but you still show up for moments like this. especially when your in the public eye. anyways, we get it, your a zayn stan.

  • DeadP001

    Im not a Zayn stan, whatever that means. I just remember how profoundly unhappy he ALWAYS looked and then saw how they were treating their token brown boy.
