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. Liam and Ni all recently co-starred in a parody video celebrating their original label, Modest Management.
“I feel like I know where I stand with Ni all,” Liam recently told The Face magazine. It sounds apathetic, but at least it’s not fighting words! Polar opposite.” Okay, true, considering Harry carries LGBT pride flags onstage and Liam made a song widely criticized for being bi phobic.
Four days after his mom died, Louis performed his first solo release on the X Factor stage (so, meaningful on multiple levels). “ … All the boys had agreed to come to that performance and didn’t show, so that really bugged me … ” he said on The Dan Wotton Interview.
“ 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.
Keeping up with Louis, Liam and Harry, but finding it trickier to catch up with Zayn. With Liam and Louis- he's said he feels it's important to keep up with them as they're both fathers, so checks in regularly, and was even messaging Louis just as he sat for an interview about his latest album, Heartbreak Weather.
He broke many a' heart when he admitted he and Harry were never that close, even during the band days, telling US Weekly: Fans of One Direction know that March 25, 2015, goes down in history as one of the saddest and most shocking days ever.
And that’s because it was the day Zayn Malik decided to leave the band. In case you forgot, the boys made the announcement in a lengthy Facebook post that pretty much shattered millions of teenage girls’ hearts around the world.
But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band,” the “Pillow talk” crooner wrote in the emotional post. “I’d like to apologize to the fans if I’ve let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart.
I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight.” After that, Harry Styles, Ni all Horn, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne continued making music and performing as a four-person band.
They went on to release one last album, Made In the A.M., before going on a hiatus in December of that same year. The singer went on to give multiple interviews about his decision to leave 1D, where he shaded the band left and right.
Zayn even admitted that he never wanted to be in the group at all, explaining that their style of music “wasn’t his cup of tea.” Ouch! But it was when the singer said that he left the band with zero friends that fans’ hearts were truly broken.
Scroll through our gallery to see what each member of 1D, including Zayn, has said about Z’s choice to leave the band and where their relationships stand now. Months after Zayn left the band, he opened up about his decision to Fader Magazine.
“I think the boys kind of knew in terms of the music, that wasn’t my cup of tea. “They would try to facilitate certain things for me, so I could sing R&B adults here or there and that was nice but obviously I think they always knew.
He understands that it’s my thing, that I had to do that, and that basically he wants to meet up and have a good chat in person. From like the first year really, I never really wanted to be there in the band,” the singer admitted.
I couldn’t give my opinion on this or that because it didn’t fit the grain of what we were as a band or what we represented. “In terms of me being described as the mysterious one, that was put on me as a stigma because I didn’t get the chance to speak as much.
He also explained that out of all the guys in the band, he was still closest with Liam. I congratulated him on his Brit Award,” Zayn said back in March 2016.
We hadn’t met in a long time, so we want to meet up.” In 2017, Zayn gave fans an insight on his current relationship with the guys.
So I didn’t really expect that much of a relationship with him,” Zayn told Us Weekly. “Yeah we spoke about , we’re in touch, everything is on a civil level,” Zayn continued.
“It’s not the way it used to be, obviously we were a lot closer because we were together the entire time, spending 24 hours a day in the band, and now we’re not, so we’re living our own lives, we’re all growing as individual men, and we still keep in touch and check in with each other not as much as we used to.” But as of November 2017, the 26-year-old admitted that he was no longer on speaking terms with any of the guys.
I actually spoke to Ni all a couple of days ago,” Zayn said. It’s almost like an older brother watching him, and it was cool to have that conversation with him.
Louis and Zayn got into a nasty Twitter fight a few months after he left the band. But the singer revealed that after the death of his mom, Johanna Deakin, he tried to make up with Zayn.
And when he heard Zayn’s solo song on the radio, it was pretty emotional for him. But Zayn has a fantastic voice and for him, it was always about owning that,” he told The Guardian.
“I had a couple of calls with him after I lost my mum,” Louis explained to Dan Wotton in his podcast. “All the boys had agreed to come to that performance, and he didn’t show so that really bugged me.
“I just don’t think I am mature enough, even in my own head, to give that a real answer,” he said, when asked if he could ever forgive his former band mate in October 2019. When The Sun asked Louis if he thought Zayn’s comments about 1D were disrespectful, he admitted, “Yeah, I do.
We have a lot of situations where we’re sat in interviews and if you’re in a certain mood you might run your mouth. The older you get the more you can tell if these things actually carry any malice or if they’re just a prod in the back.
We’ve all got a lot on our plates and there might be a day when I wake up and think, ‘OK, I want to right that wrong,’ but not yet.” “I think it’s a shame he felt that way, but I never wish anything but luck to anyone doing what they love.
I’m glad he’s doing what he likes, and good luck to him,” Harry said to Rolling Stone in 2017. While appearing on Saturday Night Live in November 2019, Harry completely shaded his former band mate.
Ni all, Liam, Louis,” he said, before playfully struggling to remember Zayn’s name. The “Sign of the Times” crooner also revealed in an interview with Zane Lowe on his New Music Daily Apple podcast, “It was kind of like we were sad, obviously, that someone had left, but also sad that he was not enjoying it so much that he had to leave.
I’d say a big part of it was us kind of being like, ‘Wow.’ You didn’t realize he wasn’t enjoying it that much.” Harry explained that after Zayn’s departure, the group got a lot closer.
“But I’d say at the moment, I guess the four of us became closer because we were like, ‘OK, this is a hurdle that we weren’t expecting.’ We’d sit down and have conversations everyone good, everyone wants to keep going and that kind of thing.” In 2017, although he revealed that they hadn’t spoken in a while, Liam couldn’t stop praising his former band mate.
He just came in, and he wasn’t expected to say very much, unless prompted to do so,” Liam also said while appearing on Radio 1’s Breakfast Show With Nick Scrimshaw. “ Zayn left, so I haven’t seen him since then,” Liam admitted in October 2019.
And when he was asked if One Direction would ever reunite with Zayn, he admitted, “No, I don’t think that’ll ever happen. When he left, it wasn’t on great terms, so I don’t feel like it’s a thing.
The father of one also told GQ in November 2019, Zayn genuinely was the best singer in One Direction, hand on heart, out of all of us. His streaming numbers are ridiculous, but I do think he misses out on the performance side a bit, you know.
I hope he has good people around him, but I don’t at this stage think it’s anything the rest of us can solve.” I still think about some stuff that was said and done that now I would do differently, but then that’s all part of growing up.
Everyone has stuff they’ve said at parties they wished they hadn’t but, for us, the difference was that it was all happening in front of the world,” he continued. I think with Zayn’s particular exit and the way he chose to go, we haven’t really heard from him since he left.
The singer also spoke out about Harry’s “Ringo Starr” joke on SNL. “I think it’s just a funny joke at the end of the day,” he said on Watch What Happens Live in December 2019.
Ni all admitted in 2017, that he hadn’t spoken to Zayn in quite some time. But Zayn is the kind of fella that changes his number every five minutes.
When asked if Zayn would be present during when One Direction reunites one day, the “Slow Hands” crooner admitted he wasn’t too sure. He’s doing his own thing and I don’t know what would happen with Zayn if the conversation came up to get the band back together,” Ni all said in October 2019.
“As long as I’ve known him, Zayn’s been the hardest man to stay in touch with,” he said. He might not reply, but I’ll give him a shout, but I don’t know… After the band, he left for his reasons and then he never really spoke to us much afterwards.
