Zayn Malik admits the 1D lads don’t want much to do with him anymore

They don't return his calls. Awks.

It comes as no surprise really that Harry, Niall, Liam and Louis don’t have Zayn in their best friends list on Snapchat. Although Zayn has always maintained he’s been on pretty good terms with the boys since leaving the band early last year (well, aside from that epic Twitter war with Louis back in the day), it seems that isn't the case and the boys couldn't care less about him. We know, shock right?

​"The truth of it is, you can think one thing about a situation and the total opposite can happen," Zayn told Billboard magazine in his cover story interview when asked about the split.

"I had every intention of remaining friends with everybody, but I guess certain phone numbers have changed and I haven't received calls from a lot of people.”

Looks like that whole "four friends for life" comment he made when he quit the band was more wishful thinking than actual gospel.

"I've reached out to a few of them and not got a reply. Certain people have pride issues, but it's stuff you overcome in time."

Yeah, maybe Zayn.

Side note: Zayn looks rather hot in his new Billboard cover shoot so we'll leave you with a few snaps that will delight your eyes.

Yes, very nice. Cheeky Zayn, we like.

Mysterious, thoughtful Zayn. Gigi would make this one her screensaver fo sho.

It's a whole new Zayn. Onward and upward. XOXO
