“I mean you know, he had to do what he had to do really, for himself,” Liam said on Wednesday (May 20) on Capital FM radio. “It’s like any other job really; sometimes you have to move on because you’re not enjoying what you’re doing as much.” He also added “of course,” when asked if he missed his friend.
“He wanted to go and spend some time with his family and missus,” Liam added. “We’re just going to carry on doing what we’re doing… We wish him [Zayn] all the best with whatever he goes into and stuff. We’ll just have to see what happens.”
The group won an award early in the show for Top Duo/Group and Liam took the time to thank their brother Zayn during the speech.
FYI: Niall is wearing Paul Smith with Prada boots. Liam is wearing a Sandro suit, Paul Smith accessories, and Christian Louboutin boots. Louis is wearing a Paul Smith jacket, Margiela t shirt, and Grenson shoes. Harry is wearing Saint Laurent.
“There’s a bit back and forth. We’re on good terms with him. I’ve never been very good at biting my tongue,” Louis said about his Twitter feud with Zayn. “Yeah, it’s all resolved.”
Liam said about him leaving, “At first we were a little bit angry, we were surprised. I think we all knew the general vibe that Zayn was feeling. You could sort of tell. There’s certain parts of this job Zayn loved and there’s certain parts…we were angry at first and then it was just more disappointed. We wish him the best of luck with whatever he gets up to. There’s no hard feelings.”
When asked if they thought of dissolving the group altogether, they said “no.” And Harry said they never thought about replacing Zayn either. Watch below!

“Louis needs to shut his mouth. He is just a child. He’s messing with a sleeping lion and you shouldn’t have woken up a sleeping lion as you are only going to regret it,” he told The Sun (via Teen.com). “I don’t know Louis, so I can only base my judgement on what he says and he is acting like a 12-year-old. Louis should be supporting Zayn. I’ve been the one looking after Zayn since he left One Direction.”
He continued, “It’s not fair for the fandom to go for us because we haven’t done anything. I’m not prepared to be the brunt of everything as everyone needs to wait for the real story to come out and then they will realize.”
Louis quickly responded to the “sleeping lion” comment:
