Louis wants to call Zayn out for handling his exit “like a coward,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. We’ve got all the scoop on the band’s latest beef!

“Zayn has gone on his trip to France with Perrie [Edwards] and completely cut his bandmates off,” the source continues. “He’s not responding to phone calls, texts and emails. It feels like Zayn is just turning his back on them.”

From ‘Brothers’ To Strangers

While he’s always been tightest with Harry, Zayn is a guy who Louis once “considered a ‘brother,'” the source explains.

“Just because he’s not in the band anymore doesn’t mean they aren’t still friends. But Zayn is acting like they are strangers,” the source adds. “Zayn has checked out, so I doubt his behavior is intended to be a diss. He’s just not too concerned about anyone but him and Perrie right now.”

What do YOU think HollywoodLifers — is Zayn purposely trying to hurt Louis’ feelings?
