Simon Cowell is definitely not pleased with former One Direction member Zayn Malik. Zayn recently told Fader about 1D's music, "There was never any room for me to experiment creatively in the band," and he even said that the tunes were "generic," and Simon isn't having any of it.
Simon told the press, "It is a bit rude to the people who wrote all the hits with them. And to the other band members. I mean they all wrote a lot of the stuff."
Simon also added that Zayn isn't on his radar at the moment, revealing, "As soon as he left we sorted him out with a label who really were enthusiastic about him and then my loyalty was back with the boys."
Sounds like Simon has cut off contact with Zayn while he goes through his transition to solo artist.
