Zayn Malik has said his former One Direction bandmates made “snide comments” when he decided to leave the group in 2015.
In an interview with British Vogue, the ‘pillowtalk’ singer says that the hurtful remarks lead to his estranged relationship with Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan.
Malik, who was the first member of the group to leave, said the comments had lead to him cutting ties with the boy band: “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. Small things that I would never have expected.”
Last month the now solo-artist released ‘Fingers’, taken from the forthcoming follow-up to his 2016’s offering, Mind of Mine.
