Then, perhaps in an attempt to squash already brewing speculation, he sent one more tweet praising his recent X-Factor stint. “It was such an amazing experience! Can’t believe it’s over. Thank you to the whole team and all the contestants!” he wrote.

The song itself is rumored to be a One Direction diss track and includes lyrics like: “I'd rather be anywhere, anywhere but here” and “‘Cause now the whole damn world will know. That we're too numb and just too dumb to change the story.”

Eagle-eyed fans didn’t miss the timing of Zayn’s song release and Louis’ vague tweets. “I’m really not ready for 2015 drama all over again but at the same time...at least it would be an interaction,” one person wrote.

As OK! readers will remember, the “Dusk Till Dawn” singer walked away from the boy band back in March 2015 during the middle of their On The Road Again world tour. Shortly after his abrupt departure, he and Louis were quickly embroiled in a brutal battle back and forth on Twitter.

The pair, who had matching friendship tattoos at the time, traded harsh insults, and when the dust settled, they were no longer on speaking terms.

In an interview with this month’s British Vogue, Zayn admitted that things between him and his former band have not gotten any better.  “I ain't spoke to any of the other 1D members for a long time to be honest with you,” he said. “That's just the way it is. There's things that happen and things that were said after I left. Snide things. Small things that I would never have expected."

He also claimed he hadn’t made a “single friend” during his time with the group.
