Zayn Malik, a name that needs no introduction. Malik, now 25, was a member of the popular boy band One Direction. However, sought out a solo career when One Direction was at its peak. Four years after they were put together on The X Factor, Zayn Malik bowed out of One Direction in 2015.
After Zayn, the band continued for some time after which other members Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson, too went on to pursue solo careers.
Recently, talking to the media, Zayn Malik said, “I ain’t spoke to any of them for a long time. There are things that happen and things that were said after I left – snide things, small things that I would never have expected.”
“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. Just boom, boom, boom. I guess that kind of progression affects you a little bit. People take it different ways, especially when there are five personalities,” he added hinting that there was no longer a possibility of a reunion between the group, any time sooner or later.
