This is so sweet. Despite Zayn Malik’s absence from Louis Tomlinson’s big ‘X-Factor’ performance, a new report claims that the former 1D singer has been in constant contact with his longtime on-again/off-again friend in private.
Louis Tomlinson, 24, is definitely not lacking in support during this very difficult time in his life. Although there was some temporary bad blood between him and Zayn Malik, 23, after the latter stepped away from One Direction, the tragic loss of Louis’ mother has brought them back together.
“Zayn has been in touch with Louis privately, and will continue to offer his support that way,” a source close to the singers told The Mirror. This news will bring serious joy to One Direction fans, as they were devastated when they found out that Zayn hadn’t flown to the UK to join Louis, although Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Harry Styles did, for their big X-Factor reunion on December 10. Sadly, all five boys have not been together since March 2015.
Although Zayn has been there for Louis behind closed doors, he also sent his love to the singer on Twitter after the news broke that his mother, Johannah Deakin, had died on Wednesday, December 7. The day the news broke, December 9, Zayn tweeted Louis directly to send his condolences. “@Louis_Tomlinson love you bro! All of your family is in my prayers,” Zayn wrote. “proud of your strength and know your mum is too x.”
While a reunion of all five members seems unlikely, it’s really heartwarming to hear that they can all be there for Louis as he grieves the loss of her mother. If only one good thing were to come out of this tragic situation, let it be that Louis and Zayn rebuild the once strong friendship they shared during their 1D days.
