Johannah Deakin made her son promise to repair his friendship with Zayn before she passed away in 2016, but Tomlinson admits that all fell apart when Malik wasn't there when he needed him during an "The X Factor" performance he dedicated to his late mother.
Speaking on "The Dan Wootton Interview" podcast on Friday, March 08, Louis confessed he was very upset when Zayn was a no-show at the tribute performance.
"Truthfully it (our friendship) never really got better to be honest," he said. "I had a couple of calls with him after I lost my mum and, you know, all the boys had agreed to come to that performance and he didn't show, and that really bugged me."
"Everyone (else) showed (up)... I got goosebumps there, and seeing Harry (Styles), Niall (Horan), and Liam (Payne), that was what I needed that night - that support."
