Louis Tomlinson Says the One Direction Guys Are Still His 'Best Mates'

Former One Direction member Niall Horan spoke out recently about how the media tries to make the former band members out to be rivals, though they aren’t at all — and now Louis Tomlinson is reaffirming that statement.

“We were always five best mates on the road; it was real nice,” the 25-year-old “Back to You” singer said to Noisey in a new interview, “and as time went on, we all began to understand each other.”

He went on to say that though their are “often misconceptions,” the five (Louis, Niall, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, and Liam Payne) have managed to stay close.

“We’re all such good mates,” he continued, “If you look at the X Factor final, when I performed my song with Steve, all the boys came to support me, and I didn’t know until a couple of hours beforehand. It wasn’t one of those stupid f-king celebrity things where it’s like, ‘Let’s all get in a picture and put it on Instagram and show everyone that we’re best mates’ ­ – we didn’t even put it online. There are always those little things that people don’t hear about.”

We’re so glad that they have all stayed close and continued to support one another, especially after so many years working together.
