Zayn Malik says he no longer speaks to former band mates

Singer Zayn Malik says he hasn't spoken to any of his former One Direction band members for a long time. The singer left the group in 2015, four years after they were put together on The X Factor and achieved global fame.

Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson continued as a four-piece for another year before they all went their separate ways to launch solo projects, announcing an indefinite hiatus.

The hope that they would get back together one day, in their original line-up, is no more after Zayn revealed that he hasn't spoken to the others for long, reports
The 25-year-old told a magazine, "I ain't spoken to any of them for a long time. There are things that happened and things that were said after I left – snide things, small things that I would never have expected."

He added, "That's just the way it is. People move on, people grow apart, people grow up. We went from theatres to arenas to stadiums; there was never any sort of bridge between us. Just boom, boom, boom. I guess that kind of progression affects you a little bit. People take it in different ways, especially when there are five personalities."
