Zayn Malik‘s ties to One Direction are broken, BUT not completely severed!

In his recent interview with NME Magazine, the Pillowtalk singer got real about his current friendship status with his former bandmates. Go on.

The British cutie explained:

“I’m still probably the closest to Liam [Payne]. We talk on the phone. He congratulated me on my single, which was nice. I congratulated him on his Brit Award [the group collected the British Video Award for Drag Me Down]. It was a good chat. We haven’t met up in a long time so we want to meet up.”

YASSSSSSSS! Although, here’s hoping this isn’t a major truth bomb for the other members of 1D!

Unfortunately, it seems like Gigi Hadid‘s beau is still pretty estranged with Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan as he hasn’t seen any of them since leaving the band. He continued:

“I tried to have contact but nobody’s reached out. So… whatever.”

Perhaps Liam could act as an ambassador between the fellas? Just sayin’!

Currently, Zayn’s former friends are all on an extended hiatus from their famous singing group. When asked if he knew he had to get out before the group’s fame expired, Zayn added:

“I’m not saying that. But if I did then f*ck me, I’ve got a great brain.”

Hmm, very inneresting. We’re still holding out hope that one day all of the boys will kiss and make up.

We can dream, right?
