Zayn Malik Misses One Direction's 'Today Show' Appearance, Matt Lauer Asks Band About His Rumored Drug Use

Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan sit down for an interview on The Today Show in a special appearance at Universal Studios on Monday morning (November 17) in Orlando, Fla.

The guys of One Direction were noticeably missing their groupmate Zayn Malik and host Matt Lauer grilled them about his absence.

“He’s got a tummy bug so he’s not very well,” Liam said. “We only found out this morning so we’re really sad, he is as well, that he can’t be here for our album release… It’s still going to be a great day, I’m sure.”

Matt then asked the guys if there was a more serious problem going on with Zayn and mentioned the rumored drug use, which drew boos from the crowd.

    How many times did Zayn can’t make it to many interviews over “stomach bugs”?
    Zayn definitely needs rehab ASAP if he can’t get sober to do his job properly or perhaps needs to get over that terrorist dumb jokes.

    Such a disrespectful and uncalled for question. The worst part is, he tried to use the fans as scapegoats by claiming they had been asking about it when in fact the rumour was non-existent until he made it up. Interviewers like Lauer will do anything for a story.. clearly he didn’t phase the group, though.
    On a more positive note, here are my thoughts on the boys’ excellent new album Four: http://t.co/f7uBgWDc3t
