One Direction’s Zayn Malik has revealed him and former girlfriend Rebecca Ferguson are not in touch after their relationship ended "badly".
Both Malik and Ferguson hail from The X Factor and had a four month relationship back in 2011, but Zayn described to Now magazine that their time together was a "weird situation".
"We’re not in touch at all… It was just a weird situation and weird time I was going through being away from home on ‘The X Factor’ tour".
The 'Live While We’re Young' singer went on to say, "I think it was a wrong decision to make at such a young age."
"Then it did end quite badly so we don’t talk anymore."
Malik is now seeing Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards, and says their relationship works because of the "trust and understanding" between them.
One Direction have their second studio album Take Me Home, coming out on 12 November.
