Zayn Malik is Out of One Direction!
One Direction’s Zayn Malik has quit the boy band’s world tour due to stress and is flying back to the UK, Sky News has reported.
The shock revelation comes after the engaged singer was forced to declare his love for fiancée Perrie Edwards after pictures emerged of him getting cosy with another woman.
A spokesman for the band said: “Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the UK to recuperate. The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta.”
On Wednesday the star told his 14.1 million Twitter followers: “I’m 22 years old... I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there’s a lot of jealous f***s in this world I’m sorry for what it looks like x.”
Zayn met 21-year-old Perrie, of girl group Little Mix, on The X Factor four years ago and the pair got engaged in August 2013.
1D are due to perform at Dubai’s Sevens Stadium on Saturday 4 April.
