Harry Styles may have revealed to Fifth Harmony that he’s still bitter about Zayn Malik leaving One Direction! The 5H girls dished on the advice Harry gave them about splitting up, and it certainly sounds like a dig at his former bandmate. See what he told them right here!
Is Harry Styles still feeling the burn of Zayn Malik leaving One Direction? The 22-year-old singer gave the Fifth Harmony girls a warning that people will try to “break them apart” throughout their time as a band, hinting that he may still have some lingering bitterness about Zayn. As the one-year anniversary of Zayn’s departure comes up, it’s an awfully coincidental time for Harry to be telling 5H something like that!
While all five girls chatted about their upcoming album with Entertainment Tonight, Dinah Hansen revealed exactly what Harry said to them. “I remember we were in rehearsals,” Dinah recalled, “and he came up to us and told us as a group, ‘All five of you should be on the same page and the closest things to each other because around all five of you there are gonna be people that are gonna come and try to snatch you. People are gonna try to break you guys apart. So as long as you five are your best friends, that’s the most important.'”
Whoa, there definitely seems to be some bitterness in that advice! The 1D guys started out their time as a group as five best friends — heck, Liam Payne even got a tattoo to resemble his bandmates — but something went sour for Zayn along the way. And ever since he left the band in March 2015, both Zayn and the guys have admitted that they really don’t keep in touch anymore.
Zayn has also dissed his former group several times since beginning his solo career, which is something Harry (and the rest of the guys, for that matter) probably didn’t see coming when they were all super close. No wonder Harry wanted to stress how important it is for the Fifth Harmony girls to stay on the same page!
As for 5H, Harmonizers need not worry. Fans were a bit concerned that the group might be splitting up after Camila Cabello individually released “I Know What You Did Last Summer” with Shawn Mendes and Normani Kordei admitted she sees herself going solo in the future. But for the time being, Dinah wants everyone to know that the girls are all about Fifth Harmony!
“Regardless of everything that’s been going on, that’s always been the focus, Fifth Harmony,” Dinah told ET. “Fifth Harmony is definitely our first love…it’s always been the foundation of everything.”
Surely the One Direction boys said something like that before Zayn left, but hey, we won’t doubt Fifth Harmony’s word. Let’s just hope that none of the 5H girls decide to pull a Zayn — because judging by Harry’s advice, the bitterness it causes is real!
