Zayn Malik is reportedly on the threshold of leaving One Direction. The 21-year-old’s desire to pursue a solo career is just a rumor. While the news has agitated the fans, it is not the first time that Malik is rumored to be leaving the group. Read on for further details.
Rumors of Malik quitting the band has been an issue in the past. Two years back, Australian stripper Courtney Webb claimed that Malik slept with her, cheating with his then girlfriend Perrie Edwards. After that controversial claim, he was supposed to leave the group. Celebuzz reported at that time that Malik was not comfortable with the spotlight.
According to a source, Malik has been trying to distance himself from the group. He would skip events and night outs with his bandmates.
“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. “Naturally, he likes the adoration and his day job, but he is battling to cope with the pressure which comes with it,” revealed a source to Celebuzz.
Meanwhile, a different source denied the rumors.
“Zayn isn’t leaving the band, they aren’t breaking up. All is well. There is zero truth to the rumors of a breakup. Everyone can rest easy!” the source told Hollywood Life.
Moreover, Malik was enraged when "Today's" Matt Lauer asked his bandmates about substance abuse issue as the reason why he missed the show.
“I’m really angry and upset by what was said. I was really ill at the weekend, that’s why I couldn’t fly to America,” responded Malik as published on the Sun.
And that’s it for One Direction update. For more updates on your favorite celebrities, stay tuned here on Movie News Guide (MNG).
