London, Feb 3: Reportedly, Zayn Malik has been taking digs at his former band and ex-bandmate Louis Tomlinson is not happy. Tomlinson thinks that Zayn has been "disrespectful" but he says that he "understands it."
In one interview he branded the band's music "generic as f**k".
Asked if he thinks some of what Zayn has said has been disrespectful, Tomlinson told thesun.co.uk: "Yeah, I do. But I can understand it. We have a lot of situations where we're sat in interviews and if you're in a certain mood you might run your mouth.
"The older you get the more you can tell if these things actually carry any malice or if they're just a prod in the back. That's life, innit? Sometimes people chat s**t and that's the reality."
Tomlinson is not ruling out resolving their differences in the future, but not any time soon.
"No, but I've not actively tried. We've all got a lot on our plates and there might be a day where I wake up and think: 'Okay, I want to right that wrong', but not yet," he said.
