[USA], August 3 (ANI): It seems like the feud between Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik is now a thing of the past.
According to People Magazine, Tomlinson believes that his feud with his former One Direction bandmate is over and they are "mates again".
While in an interview with Andy Cohen, the 25-year-old singer said, "We got back in touch with each other and kind of cleared the air and talked everything through. So we're mates again, I suppose."
The 'Just Hold On' hit-maker also shared that "it was nice that we had an opportunity to clear the air and be adults about it, I suppose."
In May 2015, Malik announced that he was quitting One Direction after five years and multiple hit singles. He and Tomlinson even got in a Twitter spat shortly after the former's departure.
Following a few snarky exchanges between Tomlinson and Malik's friend, British music producer Naughty Boy, Malik fired back himself.
Cohen also asked if becoming a father to son Freddie, 18 months, has influenced Tomlinson's music.
Tomlinson noted, "There's kind of certain references to it, but I feel like I'm also not really at that stage of my life for writing. Parenting is still very new to me, obviously, and I'm still learning as I go. So I can't really write these songs about [it when] I haven't really lived it yet." (ANI)
