Former One Direction singer Zayn Malik says his old band mates have severed ties with him, at least for now.

“The truth of it is,” Malik, who turns 23 on Tuesday, told Billboard magazine, “you can think one thing about a situation and the total opposite can happen. 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. I’ve reached out to a few of them and not got a reply. Certain people have pride issues,” he concluded, “but it’s stuff you overcome in time.”
