It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that things aren’t all smiles and sunshine between Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik. Let us never forget that Twitter fight the two got in after Zayn left the band, where thing’s got real ugly. But that’s all history. The former One Direction bandmates, as we know, are back on speaking terms thanks to Louis’ mom having one last dying wish for her son to reconcile with Zayn. Now, Louis is opening up in a new interview about getting back in touch with his old bud.

Turns out, the two did some talking and have become “mates” again. We really hope he means it because if this is all true, all is right in the world. 1D boys gotta stick together through and through.
