Zayn Malik Leaving One Direction Tour Due To Stress

Zayn Malik Leaving One Direction Tour Due To Stress

Zayn Malik is leaving this leg of the One Direction tour, their PR announced on Twitter.

“1D statement: Zayn has been 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.” Simon Jones posted on Twitter just moments ago.

News of his break comes just after Zayn defended himself on Twitter and denied cheating on his fiancee Perrie Edwards.

We wish Zayn the best and hope he feels better soon.

    That’s sad..fame is never easy,but people don’t know that.they only criticize and spread rumors.Hope he gets better.this band is not at a good time at all.

  • Maria E. Segura

    I know fame is never easy especially for young boys. But stress at his young age? Gimme me a break. What kind of things cause him to be so stressful that he needs to recover. He is very young to have stress.

  • gradybridges

    That’s a lie. The real reason is drugs but they want to protect the 1D brand.

    My heart bleeds…

    In this case, stress = I’m returning to England with my tail between my legs to try and salvage my relationship once again after I’ve been caught cheating.

  • christopher

    Poor guy say what you want about their music. they are still human and surrounded by people very money hungry. There has been many signs over the years he has dealt with depression and stress. Money doesn’t buy you happiness or change your inner chemical structure. I hope he gets the help he needs even if its drugs let him get help and heal

    Did he just overdose and need some rehab?
    He got many fans in Asia, so there must be something happened to him for their management to do something drastic like that.
    Hope Louis is not next one to go to rehab.

  • Alina

    This is the typical boyband happens to all of them, this is the beginning of the end for this band, it’s so obvious.

  • Raspitou

    What an unprofessional crybaby. He was caught redhanded – despite any of his statements, the photos speak for themselves.

    As a result, he doesn’t just let down his cheated-on girlfriend, but also his fans who were expecting to see him AND his bandmates, who now have to sing his parts. Hey, you can be mopey the other 22 hours of the day, but the 2 hours that you’re privileged enough to sing live (and get paid tons of money to do so), man up and just do it. Don’t run away from the consequences of your own actions. Such a drama queen.

  • Gina

    I hate how this guy is forced to play the bad guy because his “girlfriend’s” failing band needs PR.

  • Gina

    No, the real reason is that this is a PR stunt to promote his “girlfriend’s” band. They share a manager and a PR team and she has an album that is being released soon and is in desperate need of promotion. I’m sick of the only person of color in the band being labelled a druggie and a bad boy.

  • MollyBD

    Code for rehab?

  • sjens89

    You’re an idiot. What stress does he have to deal with? He has zero privacy, has been constantly booked for the past 4 years of his life, and is partly responsible for the billion dollar empire that is One Direction. I wouldn’t wish that on anybody.

  • Maria E. Segura

    If that would be the case .all of his band mates who are dealing with the same thing, like zero privacy, billionb dollar empire, etc should be under stress too and what a surprise he is the only one dealing with the issue. He is young he will recover for sure. If he was dealing with depression earlier in his life, and again he should have stopped being a boy band member and deal with the issue. I dont buy he is stressed, maybe he has other issues he want to deal but the PR people need to say something better to protect the brand.

  • Penny Dreadful

    I don’t have a clue who he is — HOORAY!!

  • L’Opinion de MyMy

    I’m sure the addiction problem rumor are true

  • Javiero del Pierro

    Found lots of pics of the infamous Lauren here I feel sorry for Perrie, Zayn you are over 20 man you should have known better

  • ryan charisma

    “stress” = “rehab”


  • vn_102

    If he just stress out, not really ill, then he just need to man up, not throwing tantrum and went home like petulant child.
    He’s 22 now, being paid millions in once in a life time opportunity, with the way things going it won’t be long before the band hit saturation and he should just hanging there while he still can.
    Letting down fans in countries that he never had concert before was coming off as unprofessional for him.

  • vn_102

    Harry was under more scrutiny than all of his bandmates, yet he still doing fine and not looking like junkie.
    Some people are just coming off as ungrateful being where they are now or simply can’t handle the pressure living in the celebs fastlane.
