What’s surprising is the fact that this shocking revelation comes after Zayn Malik, twenty two, found himself in the midst of cheating allegations after a candid shot of him holding the hand of a mystery blonde in Thailand, who wasn’t fiancee Perrie Edwards, catapulted social media into a rumour overdrive.
“My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band. I’d like to apologise to the fans if I’ve let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal twenty two year old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight. I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world.” states Zyan Malik in his official statement.
It’s been a huge five years for Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik after they shot to fame on X Factor in the year 2010.
Zayn, was all of seventeen at the time he auditioned for the X Factor in 2010 in Manchester, singing Let Me Love You, winning a place as a solo artist.
After being eliminated before the live shows, Simon Cowell teamed him up with Harry, Niall, Liam and Louis and they made the popular boyband, finally finishing in third place.
Despite not winning the competition, they were signed by Simon Cowell’s record label Syco and released their first top-selling single What Makes You Beautiful in September 2011 and as they say the rest was history.
Now after five incredible years, One Direction will continue as a four piece and look forward to the forthcoming concerts of their world tour and recording their fifth album, due to be released later this year.
Well, it’s all about an individual’s opinion. However, we feel that no one is indispensable. Yes, you shall always miss that one, but life goes on and so will One Direction.
Here’s wishing both One Direction and Zayn Malik all the best for their individual journeys.
