Simon Cowell has officially wiped his hands clean of everything having to do with Zayn Malik! The X Factor judge told Yahoo Celebrity UK that his focus is purely on One Direction, and he's not even in contact with the former 1D guy.
“I’m not in touch with Zayn. Once we’d made the decision that he was going to be on a different part of Sony, which is good for him, my responsibility was obviously the guys and their next record. But Zayn is going to be fine," he said.

He seemed very proud of the Bradford Bad Boy for signing his RCA deal, but that was probably the last time he dealt with the singer. However, Simon doesn't seem too fazed about the situation, and even thinks that 1D (and their music) is stronger than ever.
“The record they’ve delivered to us is honestly the best album they’ve ever made.”
Well, that's definitely something to look forwards to!
