One Direction fans were broken hearted when Zayn Malik announced his departure to be a “normal 22-year old boy” in March last year. The supporters became more devastated when the quartet bid their “temporary” goodbye during their “On The Road” tour. But amidst a plethora of rumors about going their separate ways, it is allegedly confirmed that the quintet will have a reunion because a secret plan is in the works.

Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and the current solo artist Zayn are having discreet meetings, notes Hollywood Life. This came after reports that the “Pillowtalk” singer disrespected his former groupmates.

“I genuinely enjoyed [the band] and did whatever I could to be myself within that, but it’s just not where I sit as a musician,” he told Billboard.

“The other boys’ taste was generally indie rock. It’s good music, but I don’t f**k with it. That was never cool where I was from,” the singer added.

After the news about his disrespect broke out, he reportedly expressed his willingness to perform with the boyband once again, notes The Sunday Times.  “Who knows?” he stated.

“I don’t know. If the time was right and that was the thing to do, then I would make that decision when it came around,” hence the supposed secret meeting.

Aside from that, another source told Hollywood Life once again that Zayn’s girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, wants her beau to reunite with his former friends. The model is allegedly worried about his well-being after canceling his performance at the CapitalFM Summertime Ball due to anxiety.

“Gigi is urging Zayn to get back together with One Direction for his health,” the insider claimed. “Zayn has always suffered from anxiety and since he has gone solo, it has only gotten worse.”

Notably, Zayn has been very open to his feeling towards his ex-group but a sudden reunion cannot be confirmed by this time. Also, Styles and Tomlinson who were said to have secret meetings with the “Mind of Mine” hitmaker are yet to affirm the rumors as well.

Styles has been busy doing his first ever film “Dunkirk” while Tomlinson just became a dad to baby Freddie Reign months ago. One the other hand, other members Niall Horan and Liam Payne are both busy with their own priorities.
