Zayn Malik is taking a hiatus from One Direction. The World Tour that is.
The band’s publicist, Simon Jones of Hackford PR, tweeted out that Zayn Malik—who has missed tour dates and appearances on numerous occasions, most recently leaving their Perth, would be heading home to recuperate from “stress”.
The statement from the One Direction’s publicist, stated, “Zayn has 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.”
Zayn was pictured holding hands with a young blonde, in Phuket, Thailand, during a night out and allegations of cheating followed. The 22-year-old member reportedly didn’t take well to the rumors of him cheating on fiance Perrie Edwards and this has caused him “stress”. He took to Twitter on Wednesday to directly address the cheating claims. "I'm 22 years old... I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there's a lot of jealous ***** in this world I'm sorry for what it looks like x," he wrote about the controversial pictures that feature him showing PDA with another woman.
News also emerged that the Philippines' Immigration Bureau had ordered Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson to pay $5,000 bonds before their upcoming concert in Manila due to their history with drugs.
