Making amends: Louis Tomlinson is finally 'mates again' with Zayn Malik, two years on from his shock departure from One Direction
Speaking during an appearance on Andy Cohen Live, Louis, 25, said: 'We got back in touch with each other and kind of cleared the air and talked everything through. So we're mates again, I suppose.
'Like anything like that, it takes time. But it was nice that we had an opportunity to clear the air and be adults about it, I suppose.

Speaking to The Sun, he made the stunning confession, months after he performed his debut solo song on X Factor just three days after her death - after she urged him to go ahead with the performance after her death.

Midwife Johannah passed away in December as she left Louis and six other children, Lottie, 18, Felicite, 16, twins Daisy and Phoebe, both 12, and twins Ernest and Doris, both aged two, who she gave birth to prematurely in 2014.
Shortly after the devastating loss, a statement announcing her death read: 'It is with immeasurable sadness that Johannah Deakin's family said goodbye to Johannah in the early hours of Wednesday 7th December 2016.
'Earlier this year Johannah was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukaemia that required immediate and continuous treatment. We respectfully request that the family are given time and space to grieve in private.'
Now, reflecting on his tragedy Louis revealed his mum's desperation for the star to reach out to Zayn - who left One Direction acrimoniously in March 2010 leading to a well-publicised spat between the pair.

He told the publication: 'My mum said: "You’ve got to get back in contact with Zayn. Life’s too f*****g short". A mother’s intuition is just f*****g crazy. It always felt supernatural to me. My mum always knew what I was feeling and what I wanted.'
Louis admitted he struggled to maintain the row with his former bandmate and pal: 'I can’t stand to hold a grudge with anyone. It doesn’t sit with me right. If there is any animosity, just clear the air. I met up with him and it was nice.
'I would always see the good in Zayn and also watch him shoot himself in the foot with some of his decisions, but he’s just a little misunderstood.'
