Liam Payne says Zayn Malik doesn’t “support” the idea of a One Direction reunion.
The 23-year-old singer was a former band mate of the ‘Pillowtalk’ hitmaker before his departure from the group in 2015, and has said he doesn’t “understand” why Zayn is against the idea of the ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ hitmakers – who went on hiatus at the end of the same year – reuniting in the future.
He told The Sun newspaper: “He doesn’t really support the cause.
“If he feels hurt and scorned in some sort of way that I don’t really understand that’s down to him so there we go.
“It is very sad because One Direction was a wonderful, wonderful time in all of our lives. It was like uni but on steroids, it was mad. It was so much fun and I don’t understand how you can come out of that experience and say the things that he says sometimes, it doesn’t make any sense to me but there you go.”
Zayn – who is in a relationship with model Gigi Hadid – previously said he needed a lot of “time away” from the hectic lifestyle he was thrown into during his time with the band, which also included members Niall Horan, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson.
