Hopes of a One Direction reunion can be put on the back burner after Zayn Malik confirmed he is no longer on talking terms with his ex-bandmates.
Vogue reports Malik saying, “We went from theatres, to arenas, to stadiums – there was never any sort of bridge between. Just boom, boom, boom. I guess that kind of progression to any mind – but especially when you’re 17, 18 – it kind of affects you a little bit.”
He added, “People take it different ways – especially when there are five different personalities. The relationships had broken apart.”
Malik said that he never got over the way the other boys handled his departure from the band in 2015. He concluded, “I ain’t spoke to any of them for a long time, to be honest with you. That’s just the way it is. There’s things that happen and things that were said after I left… Snide things.”
