Their brotherly bond is stronger than ever! Louis Tomlinson is supporting Zayn Malik to no end after his sad split from Perrie Edwards, and HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop on their tearful chat.
Zayn Malik, 22, may no longer be a part of One Direction, but Louis Tomlinson, 23, still considers him his brother. When Louis heard that Zayn had called off his engagement, reportedly by text, to Perrie Edwards, 22, Louis immediately called his former bandmate and they had an emotional heart-to-heart, HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY. There were even a few tears shed! Here’s what went down.
“Louis gave Zayn a call right off the bat. These guys were best friends at one point and they have gone through so much in the past year. They talked for a while about how crazy life had gotten for them. Zayn is single and going solo and Louis is going to be a dad! There were even some tears shed during the call. They fight like brothers but they also laugh like brothers.” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Aww. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster for both Zayn and Louis, and they need each other more than ever!
“By the end of the phone call they agreed they were overdue for a big celebration night after all they have been through,” our insider continues. “Now that they are both single they agreed they should go on a wild night out together and meet some new girls. As soon as their schedules will allow it they are going to make it happen!” Zayn and Louis out on the town?! We love this!
It’s great that even though Zayn and Louis have gone their separate ways career-wise (Zayn recently signed to RCA records!), they are able to remain on good terms and support each other — musically and emotionally! Louis isn’t the only member of 1D supporting Louis. Harry Styles, 21, has also reached out to him, too!
