One Direction’s Zayn Malik Leaves Tour Due to ‘Stress’

The only direction Zayn Malik is heading towards is home. Amid rumors that the boybander has cheated on his fiancée, Little Mix‘s Perrie Edwards, Malik is taking time away from One Direction, leaving Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne to continue with their international tour without him. A statement from the group’s rep reads, “Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the U.K. to recuperate." “The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta.”
