'X Factor UK' Judge Louis Walsh Thinks Zayn Malik's Decision Was Influenced by Fiance Perrie Edwards

One of the guys who more or less helped discover Zayn Malik is now speaking out about his departure from One Direction.

X Factor UK judge Louis Walsh opened up about the 22-year-old singer’s decision and how it likely had something to do with fiancee Perrie Edwards.

“What I found in the past is as things get on, and as they get girlfriends, the girlfriends are whispering things in their ears and saying like, ‘You should be a solo star,’ ‘You should be the lead singer.’ That’s usually the problem,” Louis told Ireland’s RTE Radio One (via E! News).

When asked if he thinks Perrie is the new Yoko Ono, he said, “Yeah, it happens in every band. Happens in every band in the whole world. But they’ve had an amazing five years.”

“I’ve heard the rumors for the last few weeks that everyone wasn’t happy in paradise,” Louis said. “The problem with these guys is they’ve been in a bubble for the last five years, pressure, working, a lot harder than people think, so something had to give. So Zayn was the first person just to crack up a little bit.”

He added, “He’s made a lot of money. He’s seen the world. He’s had an amazing time with the other guys. That’s the good side of it. The dark side of it is all the traveling, the airports, in a bubble, not really seeing real life…They burn out basically. The thing with One Direction is they were massive worldwide. They were going from continent to continent, right across America. Hotels…he probably didn’t see light of day, he was just working, working, working.”

    Blaming the girlfriend? Are you guys serious with this? This guy doesn’t even keep in touch with the band and even if he did, how irresponsible is it to blame her when millions of irrational girls are going through a traumatic event.

  • Christina

    Why is everyone blaming Perrie? It’s as if Zayn is not a grown-up and cannot decide for himself… Come on now

  • My view

    Louis Walsh has ZERO contact with the 1D boys they’re managed by Simon not him, he’s acting like he’s got an insiders knowledge when he’s in fact only speculating like everyone else

    That’s the biggest load of buIIshit i’ve ever heard. And this is all coming from a man that hasn’t had any contact with the boys whatsoever in years. The girl herself is in a band and couldnt be more happy with the poistion she has. Shes carefree, she doesnt tell him to do anything because thats HIS life. This was HIS decision stop trying to put it on someone else and accept the fact that he left because he couldn’t do it anymore

    What exactly is wrong with him trying for a solo career. If he’s got it, it’ll work out. I’m sure he discusses things with his fiancee, but he’s the one who has to make the decision. No one likes to see bands break up but it happens.

  • jane

    these type of men keep women down. you don’t blame a woman for a man’s decision. even if she’s whispering for him to leave the band every single night, he is an adult capable of his own decision-making and if there is any ‘blame’ it is 100% on him.
