Many fans were devastated when Zayn Malik announced in March 2015 that he was leaving One Direction. The British singer first found fame alongside Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Harry Styles, who were put together on “The X Factor” in 2010.

Zayn and Harry have thrown shade at each other since Gigi Hadid’s boyfriend decided to leave the popular boy band. Recently, the 24-year-old Bradford native divulged that he and Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend were not really close friends.

Zayn and Harry's friendship

During an exclusive interview with Us Weekly, Zayn Malik talked about his relationship with Harry Styles.

"To be honest, I never really spoke to Harry even when I was in the band,” he revealed when asked if he still speaks with Harry. "So I didn't really expect that much of a relationship with him,” the singer went on.

Zayn Malik, however, emphasized that he is in contact with Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan again. Gigi Hadid’s boyfriend said that their relationship remained civil, but admitted that everything is not the way it used to be since he left One Direction.

When asked if he feels pressured to settle down now that two of his previous bandmates have kids already, Zayn said that everything will happen in the right time and in the right place. The singer even shared that he does not like making decisions based on the pressure that he is feeling.

Additionally, Zayn Malik expressed his willingness to reunite with Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Harry Styles if there will ever be a chance. “Who knows? I’ve said it before: Never say never,” the British hunk said.

Meanwhile, Zayn shared his thoughts about the most-recent Taylor Swift drama.

For starters, the 27-year-old American songstress has received criticism regarding her music and personal life lately.

Speaking to Fader Magazine, the former One Direction singer said that he rates people based on his personal interactions with them. Zayn Malik said he does not care about the opinions of other people.

“I don't pay too much attention to what people even say about me,” Zayn told the publication when asked if he can relate to Taylor’s position.

“I just tend to take it for what it is when I meet the people in real life and have a conversation with them,” he went on.

Zayn Malik even said that Taylor Swift is very close to his girlfriend Gigi Hadid. He added that does not have a bad word to say about her. Stay tuned for more news and updates!
