Zayn Malik Struggled the Most With One Direction Tour Demands, 'This Is Us' Director Says

Zayn Malik reportedly struggled with fame while he was a member of One Direction, according to Morgan Spurlock, the director of the band’s documentary This Is Us.

“He always struggled with being on the road. He’s a homebody. He wanted nothing more than to sit in his house and spray paint and draw and do art, and I think this explosion that happened to him — which was something none of them ever predicted,” Morgan shared to Huffington Post about the 22-year-old singer.

Morgan added, “But I think he was the one who struggled with it the most. And being away, being on the road, being away from his girlfriend I think finally just got to him, and I think he said, ‘I’m done.’”

    It is hard to feel sorry for him. He has fame, money and more which he wouldn’t have had without 1D. He was the one that pursued this course in his life and I’m sorry but he should have dropped the group long before he did if this is truly how he feels.

    I get you but having fame money and more is nothing when you barely have the time to live i’m not a 1D fans but I’ve been saying to myself like what is goig on with them for the past 5 years, they’ve got discovered in 2010 and since then we’re talking about 4 international tours, 4 albums, multiple interviews, multiple rumors, so like I imagined myself at his place and I was like what’s the point of being famous, rich …. if you can’t even spend time with your loved ones, or even by yourself, watch tv, go to the beach so I think I get it even though he chose it he probably didn’t want it so fast and when you are in a band you probably don’t decide anything
