Liam continued to explain that he doesn't believe Zayn enjoys the life that came with becoming so famous, and honestly we believe him.
Speaking to the Daily Star Online, he said: "I remember Zayn telling us the story that it was his mum got him to go to the audition the day he didn't want to go and that was literally what we saw all the way through One Direction."
During the height of their career, Liam said that he, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson came to realise that Zayn was seriously unhappy.
He said: "We always kind of knew that there were moments when One Direction was really Zayn and then there were moments when it really wasn't."
Liam did insist that while Zayn loves making music (and is exceptionally good at it), he doesn't like to perform. It's something Zayn, who struggles with anxiety, has admitted himself when he cancelled all live performances after going solo.
Fans got excited when it was revealed last week that One Direction was planning a reunion, especially after they all re-followed Zayn on Twitter, but Liam later revealed in an Instagram Live with DJ Alesso that Zayn would not be joining them.
