We knew they weren’t exactly besties, but…
Harry Styles and Zayn Malik have thrown a few barbs at each other since the latter packed his bags and left One Direction.
But the gloves are well and truly off between the pair, with Zayn claiming they were never mates in the first place!
Asked if they ever catch up for a pow wow, he tells Us magazine , “To be honest, I never really spoke to Harry even when I was in the band. So I didn’t really expect that much of a relationship with him.”
Things got nasty between the pair when Zayn blasted One Direction’s music for not being very cool.
“Would you listen to One Direction, sat at a party with your girl? I wouldn’t,” Zayn sniped in 2015.
To which Harry later responded, “I think it’s a shame he felt that way.”
However, Zayn says he’s still in touch with his other bandmates Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne, although they’re not as close as they were in the good old days.
“Everything is on a civil level. It’s not the way it used to be, obviously, because we were spending 24 hours a day in the band and now we’re growing as individual men, but we still check in,” he adds.
And in a move that’s bound to be music to the ears of all Directioners out there, he also confirms that a reunion isn’t totally out of the question.
“I’ve said it before: Never say never,” he continues.
The muso is currently dating model Gigi Hadid, but says they’ve no plans to follow in the footsteps of Liam and his girlfriend Cheryl by making babies.
As for wanting a family with Gigi, Zayn admits he’s “hopeful” it will happen when the time’s right.
