Okay so none of us are under the illusion that Zayn Malik hangs out with his former one Direction band mates, right?

Ever since he left the group, tensions have seems a bit high.

We wouldn’t call it a feud, but they don’t seem to be the BFFs they once were is all.

However, there have been occasions where shots have been fired, and shade has been thrown.

This weekend being one of those occasions folks.

Over the weekend, the divine Harry Styles hosted Saturday Night Live in New York.

A big deal, if you didn’t know that already.

During his opening monologue, Harry spoke about his time in the group which made him famous.

Harry said he thought of the lads as his family, before teasing the audience about them being there on the show.

They weren’t btw.

“I love those guys, they’re my brothers. Niall, Liam, Louis… Uh.. Ringo! Yeah, that’s it,” Harry joked.

Anyone that knows the suss, knows that this was a dig.

Why? Basically, Ringo Starr famously left The Beatles in 1968, he quit the band for five months while they were recording their self-titled album.

So yeah, Zayn is the One Direction Ringo.

Harry went on, making jokes.

Proving a point that he was a serious musician Harry said: “I’m not in a boyband anymore. I’m in a man band.”

Referring to One Direction, he smirked as the audience cheered: “How crazy would it be if they were here tonight?

“They’re not though. But wouldn’t it be crazy if they were…? But they’re not.”

And sadly, they weren’t.

He added: “I’m so grateful Simon Cowell grew us in those test tubes.”
