Zayn Malik Says He & Harry Styles Were Never Close Friends

Zayn Malik is opening up about how he and Harry Styles were never as close as some fans may have thought they were.

The singers shot to fame together as members of One Direction, but Zayn left the group at the peak of the group’s success and the rest of the guys eventually went on to launch solo careers as well.

“We’re in touch,” Zayn told Us Weekly about him and the other 1D members. “Everything is on a civil level. It’s not the way it used to be, obviously, because we were spending 24 hours a day in the band and now we’re growing as individual men, but we still check in.”

When asked if he talks to Harry, he said, “To be honest, I never really spoke to Harry even when I was in the band. So I didn’t really expect that much of a relationship with him.”

Niall Horan Credits Louis Tomlinson For Keeping One Direction Together

Louis Tomlinson was a big part of One Direction.

However, the 25-year-old singer recently revealed that he felt forgettable during the early days of the group especially.

But his bandmate Niall Horan says otherwise.

“He knows that none of us ever thought that or think that. He’s an unbelievable guy, a great singer and someone that if, I’d say, we would have lost the plot along the way if we hadn’t had Louis,” Niall told Nova 100 radio show (via Daily Mail). “He was a very, very, very, extremely vital member of One Direction. He’s a great man.”

Harry Styles' Former One Direction Bandmates Hadn't Heard 'Sign of the Times' Yet

Harry Styles is opening up about his former band mates!

The 23-year-old singer, who just dropped his debut solo single “Sign of the Times,” revealed that the rest of the One Direction guys hadn’t heard it yet.

“No, I actually haven’t. I haven’t played it for many people,” Harry told SiriusXM’s The Morning Mash Up show. “I kept it very close to my chest. Just kind of been getting it all ready and stuff. We’ll see how it goes.”

As for Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson – and maybe even Zayn Malik‘s – success, Harry said, “Yeah, I mean it’s amazing for your friends, to watch them put music out and it go so well. Everyone so far has done amazing, so if I get to join them in that, that would be amazing.”

He also commented on Louis and Liam becoming fathers.

“I mean, it’s been pretty amazing,” Harry said. “I’ve spoken to both of them and they’re super happy. It’s a pretty amazing thing and it’s pretty great to watch.”

In case you missed it, listen to “Sign of the Times” right now!

Donald Trump Once Kicked One Direction Out of His Hotel

Donald Trump once showed One Direction the direction to the exit!

The guys – Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik – were apparently kicked out of the president’s hotel because they didn’t drop their plans to have a meeting with one of his daughters (it’s unclear which one).

Trump actually kicked us out of his hotel once,” Liam told Rollacoaster magazine. “You wouldn’t believe it. It was about [meeting] his daughter.”

“He phoned up our manager and we were asleep,” Liam explained. “He said, ‘Well, wake them up,’ and I was like, ‘No,’ and then he wouldn’t let us use the underground garage. Obviously in New York we can’t really go outside. New York is ruthless for us.”

“So he was like, ‘OK, then I don’t want you in my hotel,’” Liam added. “So we had to leave.”

Yikes!

Louis Tomlinson Says There's 'No Bitterness' Between Former One Direction Bandmates (Video)

Louis Tomlinson is spilling on the relationships between himself and his former One Direction groupmates!

The 25-year-old singer revealed that, despite any rumors of tension floating around the media, the five guys are still as good of friends as ever.

In fact, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik all showed up to support Louis as he performed on stage as a solo artist for the first time at The X-Factor in December, following his mother death.

“I think that’s what it’s all about,” Louis told the Rolling Stone. “People love to write what they want to write but there’s no bitterness.”

Regarding the group possibly getting back together one day, he added, “No one knows the answer right now. Everyone’s just enjoying a schedule that’s not as relentless and exploring solo projects.”

Watch the interview below to hear what else Louis had to say about why he chose to transition his solo career to dance-pop.
