Speaking out on Dan Wooton’s podcast last week, Louis revealed the goss behind the breakdown of their bond.
The Just Hold On singer, 27, admitted he stayed pally with Zayn just after the band parted ways.
However when Louis lost his mum Joannah to Leukaemia in 2016, Zayn’s support wasn’t what Louis had expected.
Zayn, 26, who departed One Direction in 2015 to pursue a solo career, failed to show up to support Louis’ X Factor performance following the death of his mum – which clearly didn’t go down too well.

Despite Z being a no-show, the rest of the band made sure they were by Louis’ side in his hour of need.
Louis’ mum passed away just two days before his X Factor performance, was due to take place, so it’s no shock that he was more than happy to have the rest of 1D to give him a well-needed boost of confidence.
‘It was just seeing everyone there – Harry, Niall and Liam – that was what I needed that night, that support,’ he added.

Comparing the effort Zay opted to show to the heartfelt gesture his bandmates pulled out the bag, And Louis couldn’t help but hint the friendship has now fizzled out, saying: ‘On the other end of the spectrum it kind of really showed. So, eh, I hope he’s alright, but…’
