There have been a few rumours floating around just recently, suggesting that Zayn Malik is quitting One Direction. It was claimed that having his life so publicly scrutinized has taken its toll on Zayn and the recent claims that he cheated on girlfriend Perrie Edwards have made him ready to walk away from One Direction.
A supposed source told Celebuzz, “Zayn is on the brink at the moment. He has been quite low at several points when being away for key family celebrations. But his pals have cheered him up. People forget he is the shyest member. Every step 1D makes is scrutinized and judged by the public and media. Their reputation as role models to teens is also weighing heavy on his shoulders as it is not natural for him to be bright, bubbly and smiley twenty-four seven.”
However, a One Direction representative has now come out and denied that there is any truth in these rumours, saying that Zayn Malik is not quitting One Direction. The rep got straight to the point, with no messing about and stated, “It’s completely untrue, Zayn isn’t leaving the band.”
So for all you Directioners who were panicking that the boyband were going to have to try and carry on without Zayn Malik, you can all rest easy, Zayn Malik is not leaving One Direction. YAY!
