ONE DIRECTION ZAYN MALIK SPLIT A COMPLICATED ISSUE
Fans all over are grief stricken at the departure of Zayn Malik, one fifth of the boy band One Direction that now only features Nial, Louis, Harry and Liam. Zayn left the tour they were on to supposedly settle things up with fiancé Perrie Edwards last week but made his final decision via a Facebook statement on Wednesday. There had been rumors of him hanging out with another woman, and he felt it best to be back home with his fiancé.
Zayn says: “My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band. I’d like to apologise to the fans if I’ve let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight. I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world.”
One Direction say: “We’re really sad to see Zayn go, but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future. The past five years have been beyond amazing, we’ve gone through so much together, so we will always be friends. The four of us will now continue. We’re looking forward to recording the new album and seeing all the fans on the next stage of the world tour.”
The group said they are sad to see him go but are looking forward to carrying on and bringing fans their fifth album later this year. Zayn hoped that the band would choose to take more time off, but for 1D the show must go on.
