One Direction’s Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik are looking for ways to support Louis Tomlinson who just lost his mom to leukemia. Their responses to Louis’ pain and loss were very touching.
While Zayn Malik’s family could be in danger, and Liam Payne might be concerned that his expectant wife Cheryl may have gotten too upset this week, they, together with Harry Styles and Niall Horan, put everything aside to support Louis Tomlinson. The bandmates united in solidarity Saturday night on X Factor.
Louis Tomlinson performed a tribute to his mom on X Factor Saturday night. Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik all attended the heart-wrenching performance of “Just Hold On,” according to People. Harry, Niall, Liam, and Zayn all even sat together. Watch Louis’ amazing and emotional solo song in the video below.
One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson has received an outpouring of support on social media from fans, as well as from Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik.

Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne broke their separation to see Louis Tomlinson perform his solo single, “Just Hold On.” According to the Mirror, it was his mom’s dying wish that Louis would return to the X Factor stage to sing “Just Hold On” tonight, but it is unimaginable what it was like to sing on stage in such grief.

Sadly for One Direction this holiday season has brought troubles of different types to Zayn Malik and Liam Payne as well. Zayn and Liam may be needed at home too.
Zayn Malik, formerly of One Direction, must be alarmed by death threats against his family, after his 14-year-old sister Safaa Malik posted a picture of the family Christmas tree. The Malik family is dual faith, Zayn and Safaa’s mother Trisha is Christian, while their father is Muslim. Many people find the two faiths compatible, including the yogis in India, but a lot of scary trolls apparently don’t think it is appropriate at all.
One Direction’s Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan have circled the wagons, so to speak, uniting with Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik. Zayn Malik was not going to miss supporting his friend Louis Tomlinson in his grief either, despite his own troubles.
Zayn Malik’s family could be in real danger. Though generally most phone and social media threats are hollow, these were especially “disgusting” according to sources for The Sun. Safaa Malik has since deleted the terrifying and perhaps credible threats.
One Direction’s Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik have had a great year, a nice break, and some productive time in the studio. Now. though, as the year draws to a close, there are troubles large and small.
One Direction’s Liam Payne is furious at Louis Walsh after comments Walsh made about Liam’s pregnant wife Cheryl. Cheryl will not be a judge on X Factor anymore. That must be bad enough news for the young family, but Walsh was horrendously rude in comments he made about Cheryl to media when asked if Cheryl would be returning to X Factor. Teen Vogue reported Walsh’s remarks.
“[Cowell] wouldn’t invite Cheryl back because we have Nicole. We have Nicole and Sharon, we don’t need another girl, so go and f*ck off now… No silly questions, seriously. It’s not about Cheryl. Don’t be stupid.”
While One Direction’s Liam Payne and Cheryl hardly need the money from the X Factor gig, it’s bound to bother Cheryl the way it was said, and judging from Liam’s Twitter comments there is more to the story. Upsetting a pregnant woman is something Liam Payne would never tolerate, especially considering Cheryl is his wife. Liam was livid as he took to twitter, calling out Louis Walsh.
Congratulations Louis Walsh for setting the worst example on handling media for his band who are about to step into a very hard industry

One Direction’s Liam Payne also tweeted
“Maybe it’s about time you realise it’s not all about you and shut the f**k up for once, let them speak”
One Direction’s Niall Horan defended the musical skills of Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, and Liam Payne from some harsh criticism. Many people don’t realize how much Harry, Louis, Liam, Niall, and Zayn worked to produce One Direction’s music. Sometimes people say really cruel things. Niall Horan set the haters straight according to Unreality TV.
“I don’t think anyone really gives One Direction enough credit you know – in terms of what we were like in the studio. They think ‘Here we go, another manufactured lot that don’t really write their own stuff’, but people would be wrong if they thought that,”
RELATED REPORTS FROM THE INQUISITR
While the issue of One Direction haters is fairly trivial compared to Louis Tomlinson’s mother’s death at the age of only 42 after a short but painful battle with leukemia, or death threats against Zayn Malik’s family, they are examples of the kinds of negative and hurtful comments that sometimes barrage Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan. The press and the public on social media can be cruel at times.
Zayn Malik just released a wonderful duet with Taylor Swift and should be out promoting the new single, but instead he is taking a step away from the spotlight according to The Sun.
One Direction fans should be especially supportive as Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, and Liam Payne each goes through some difficult times and Harry Styles and Niall Horan offer comfort.
