Simon Cowell Speaks Candidly On Zayn Malik's One Direction Exit

Simon Cowell shows some chest hair while attending the auditions for Britain’s Got Talent at The Mayfair Hotel on Thursday (April 9) in London, England.

The 55-year-old judge recently shared his thoughts on Zayn Malik‘s departure from One Direction, who he has helped manage since 2010.

“He’s a fantastic singer. Um, look, he’s got to get his head together a little bit,” Simon shared. “He needs some time on his own, as he said, to be a normal 22-year-old, which he’s gonna have.” Watch the video below!

Simon added about possibly signing Zayn as a solo artist, “I can’t give anything away.”

    What is Mr Cowell going to do about fans at the Philippines,
    Indonesian, South African & Dubai shows that did not get what they paid for?

    Zayn personally has all my sympathies. This question is for 1D
    Management. Partial ticket price refund?
    I think it is the management that has to get it’s head together. Crap starts at the top.
