Of course, Directioners everywhere were confused and upset when Zayn Malik decided to leave One Direction but which one of the band members took it the hardest?! According to a new interview with The Sunday Times Style magazine, it was Louis Tomlinson who really had a difficult time accepting the idea that one of his besties would no longer be a part of the group that had skyrocketed them to fame!
Louis actually opened up the magazine and we can't imagine how hard this must have been for him especially. He said, "It was hard. I think maybe for me the most. But he [Zayn] wanted to be happy and he wasn't."
Louis continued, "Everything had always been good and then something bad happens and you have to make decisions, you have to work out what you want and it makes you really know what you want. We all knew we wanted this."
However, Louis did admit that there was one good thing about Zayn leaving and that was the timing of it all. The boys had not started working on their album Made In The A.M. With Zayn gone, they were really able to focus and work hard on the music and show the world they were stronger than ever.
"The good thing was, he left just before we made the album. It was like, 'Right, let's make it the best album.' So we worked our backsides off because we want to show we are a band, we're here and this is what we do," Louis confessed.
