He blamed the complicated relationship between him and his former band mates partly on rude remarks made behind his back. Malik didn't say who specifically from the band made those comments, but clearly the fact that they were said at all affected his relationship with all the boys.
During his opening monologue, Styles reflected on his time in One Direction. They're my brothers... Ni all, Liam, Louis...” before pausing to make it seem like he'd forgotten Malik's name.
Considering this moment was one of the very few times Styles openly shaded Malik, it was probably all in good fun. Considering Malik and Styles both confirmed they don't communicate these days, it doesn't seem like the two singers are close at all.
On the bright side, there isn't any indication Malik and Styles are on bad terms with each other, so that should be a small comfort to fans. It’s been almost five years since Zayn Malik boldly quit One Direction.
Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Ni all Horn continued without him for a year, then began an “indefinite” “hiatus.” Each member has made solo music, toured, and done dozens of interviews in which they dodge questions about the other four members (some more artfully than others). Let’s figure out which One Direction members are burning with white-hot hate and which ones are chilling.
The Irish member of 1D supported Harry during one of his first solo concerts, and some fans spotted him in the crowd. On November 14, Ni all shared photos of them hanging out backstage at Previous Benefit in Mexico.
In 2016, less than a year after the band dissolved, Louis Tomlinson’s mom died. Four days after his mom died, Louis performed his first solo release on the X Factor stage (so, meaningful on multiple levels).
As for Harry and Louis, after six years of having fans convinced they’re secretly dating, tormenting their girlfriends, and ultimately ruining their friendship, it makes sense they’re not buddies anymore. “ took away the vibe you get off anyone,” Louis also said on The Dan Wotton Interview.
I think it shows that it was never anything real, if I can use that word.” It doesn’t seem like they hate-hate each other, but they’re definitely not grabbing a beer when they’re in the same town. Over the years, Harry has appeared at a number of events with the One Direction boys, but there’s almost no photographs of them together.
Harry is famously the most private of the boys, making it hard to get a read on their relationship (despite what SNL monologues may lead you to believe). But in a recent Rolling Stone interview, Harry made it clear he doesn’t have any bad blood for the boys.
Since leaving the band, there’s been a lot of tension between the four remaining members and lone wolf Zayn Malik. “I ain’t spoke to any of them for a long time, to be honest with you,” he said in November 2018.
His reputation as the 'nice guy' of the band definitely hasn't been disproven since the boys have flown solo- as Ni all is pretty many mates with all of them! Keeping up with Louis, Liam and Harry, but finding it trickier to catch up with Zayn.
During the special episode which aired in 2018 it revealed them hanging out in their natural surroundings and how close they still are! Louis Tomlinson throws shade at Zayn & Naughty Boy on Twitter.
Zayn Malik thought it was a good time to completely shatter our One Direction loving hearts when he casually mentioned that he was never close with Harry Styles and today, they’re not really friends. Well, we know that like any relationship, Harry and Zayn’s has changed and evolved over the years and while it’s sad to know they’re not the best of buds anymore, we simply refuse to believe they were ever not friends.
Like they never spoke, ever during all those years making music and traveling the world together? We beg to differ and are taking a bit of a trip down memory lane to look back on happier Carry times.
And Zayn returned the favor, laying a smooch on Harry’s cheek. The dancing he had to do during the X Factor auditions was traumatizing enough that it made him almost quit the show long before 1D was even a thing yet.
He was always impressed by Hamza’s maturity level, since he is the youngest 1D guy. And there was that time he showed his love for Harry via a very sweet tweet.
The “BSE” video is one of the great treasures we are all forever grateful One Direction gave us, especially since Zayn transformed into a woman named Veronica who happens to catch Harry’s eye. What they experienced together along with Ni all Horn, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne is something only the five of them will ever understand and that is enough to keep them bonded for life, whether they like it or not.
One Direction is on the eve of releasing their latest (and possibly last) album Made In The A.M., and hearts have been breaking ever since they announced their upcoming hiatus. Throughout the span of their career, the 1D boys have captured the hearts of millions of people around the globe, not only for their music and dashing good looks, but for the relationships that they formed with each other within the group.
Us fans all love the special moments between the members, but ever since Zayn Malik left the group, the chemistry seems to have changed. Probably the biggest shipping community when it comes to the group is that of Styles and Louis Tomlinson, which has spawned some pretty ridiculous fan theories.
Actually, come to think of it, almost every member apparently has a love connection with Styles, because he's just so charming, and his and Malik's friendship was no exception. Since Malik has been out of the group, the boys have been very careful in how they speak about him leaving, but I can't help but be curious about what their relationships are like now.
Back in 2012, Malik shared with The Mirror of his protective dynamic with Styles, who is the youngest of the band, saying, After Malik left the group earlier this year, the boys remained very coy about their feelings in the aftermath.
Now that their album is about to be released, questions have been asked of One Direction when it comes to their music post- Zayn. Zayn Malik's mum has been 'liking' Instagram pics of her son with Harry Styles.
Zayn Malik’s mum liked a number of pictures of her son with ex band mate Harry Styles posted by One Direction fan accounts on Instagram, and some Directions are taking it as proof the duo are actually still friends. In a tweet which racked up thousands of likes within the space of a few hours, ones tan posted screenshots of Zayn’s mum Tricia, aka ‘@mammamalik’, ‘liking’ pictures of Zayn and Harry over the years, before her son left the group to pursue his solo career.
Zayn famously claimed he and Harry ‘never really spoke’ throughout their time in One Direction, saying they weren’t close friends in a 2017 interview with Us Weekly. Picture: Getty Further cementing his lack of friendship with any of the boys, Zayn later told Billboard that same year: “Our relationships have definitely changed since we were in a band together, but I think that's just life.
