Before Louis Tomlinson's mother, Johannah Deakin, passed away from leukemia in December, she reportedly "initiated a secret reconciliation" between her son and his One Direction bandmate, Zayn Malik.

"My mum said, 'You've got to get back in contact with Zayn. Life's too f---ing short,'" Tomlinson, who hadn't spoken to his 1D co-member for a year after Malik quit the band, explained in an interview, according to The Sun.

"A mother’s intuition is just f---ing crazy," he added. "It always felt supernatural to me. My mum always knew what I was feeling and what I wanted."

As for his friendship with Malik, the singer shared that the two are currently on good terms.

"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," Tomlinson revealed.
