No bad blood here!

Zayn Malik set the record straight in a recent interview, explaining that he naturally feels competitive with his former One Direction band mates, but that he has nothing against them. The 24-year-old “Dusk Till Dawn” singer, who’s currently living on a quiet ranch with model girlfriend Gigi Hadid, says that he grew apart from Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, and that he doesn’t keep in touch with any of them any more.

In the past two years, since leaving the infamous boy band, Zayn’s put out countless successful solo hits and collaborated with some of the biggest names in the industry — including Taylor Swift and Sia! Even though it might break Directioners’ hearts to hear, sometimes change is a good thing!

“Our relationships have definitely changed since we were in a band together, but I think that’s just life. Everybody grows up; two of the guys have got kids now. But no, I don’t talk to any of them, really.”
