Zayn Malik was never planning on returning to One Direction, despite a new fabricated report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this made-up claim. We’re told the blog that manufactured the story is once again “lying.”

According to the fiction writers at HollywoodLife, Malik’s recent “Taylor Swift diss” on Twitter has derailed any chances of him reuniting with his former bandmates. The webloid then quotes one of its untraceable (and most likely made-up) sources as saying that after Malik shaded Swift, Harry Styles said it was “not cool” and got the other guys in the group to make sure their former bandmate could never reunite with them again.

Gossip Cop would like to know whether this was the same fabricated “source” who told HollywoodLies that Swift and Styles were getting back together again? Or the so-called insider that told the untrustworthy webloid that Styles sent Swift 1,989 roses after she released her album 1989. Both stories were shown to be manufactured by the site, with Styles even publicly stating that HollywoodLife’s rose story was a complete lie.

Regardless, Gossip Cop checked with a real source who has repeatedly and accurately debunked numerous stories hatched by HollywoodLies, and we’re exclusively told, “There were never plans for Zayn to return to [One Direction]… They’re lying.”
