Liam Payne has claimed his One Direction bandmate Zayn Malik "didn't even say goodbye" when he left the group in 2015.
The "Strip That Down" hitmaker admits it was a huge shock when Zayn decided to leave the band in the midst of their world tour in 2015 and Liam has confessed there are still some grudges.
Asked if there were still grudges held between members of the band, he said: "Definitely in some part, yeah. We had our differences throughout the whole experience with some things ... Now we are older, for me certainly there are things that I am just not as bothered about.
"I think with Zayn's particular exit and the way he chose to go, we haven't really heard from him since he left. He didn't even say goodbye, if I am being honest. It was a really sordid scenario, from our side certainly. A bit strange. It's difficult."
Liam praised Zayn's "amazing talent" and vocal abilities but admits it is tough for the singer because he finds it hard to perform on stage.
