Once upon a time, the members of One Direction were bandmates and friends for life. After the group went their separate ways, however, not everything was so cordial.
When Zayn Malik famously left the group in 2015, there was a rift between him and the rest of the band. He and Louis Tomlinson had the biggest falling out, but apparently, they’ve since mended their friendship.
Tomlinson stopped by “Andy Cohen Live” on Monday and when Cohen asked him about his friendship with Malik, he said the two have become friends again. Following the passing of Tomlinson’s mom Johannah Deakin in 2016, the two reconnected.
“We got back in touch with each other and kind of cleared the air and talked everything through. So we’re mates again, I suppose,” Tomlinson said.
“Like anything like that, it takes time. But it was nice that we had an opportunity to clear the air and be adults about it, I suppose,” he continued.
Before Johannah passed away, she gave her son some advice–get back in contact with old friends. “My mum said, ‘You’ve got to get back in contact with Zayn. Life’s too f**king short. A mother’s intuition is just f**king crazy. It always felt supernatural to me. My mum always knew what I was feeling and what I wanted,” he revealed to The Sun this month.
This clearly proves One Direction is forever.
