“Zayn Malik is officially leaving One Direction” was the news that broke the hearts of many Directioners worldwide. But as fans said, “If this news is breaking our hearts, what more for the rest of the boys?”
It’s true, though, as photos of Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson crying during their last concert as a five-piece band surfaced on the Internet.
According to SugarScape, a clip and several photos of Styles and Tomlinson showed that they were crying during their concert in Indonesia. The outlet cited that this was One Direction’s last concert with Zayn Malik, which led fans to conclude that the boys already knew of Malik’s decision to leave the band. Aww!
Fans initially thought that Styles cried over the Directioners’ banner, which read: “Thank you” for Liam, Louis, Niall, Harry and Zayn.
The outlet cited a couple of tweets from fans, which connected the clip and photos taken from the Jakarta tour to Zayn’s departure from the band.
“Harry and his band mates initially tried to convince him from quitting,” a source told HollywoodLife.com.
According to the outlet, the boys tried to convince him to stay, saying that he should not make any decisions that he might regret in the future. But sadly, Zayn Malik officially announced that he is leaving One Direction for good.
Zayn Malik announced his departure from the band on their official Facebook page. He said, “My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagine. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band…”
The boys’ official statement reads: “We’re really sad to see Zayn go, but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future…”
