One Direction’s Zayn Malik has left the band, according to their Facebook page. The news comes on the heels of Malik’s announcement last week that he wouldn’t be joining One Direction for the rest of their tour because of stress.
“My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined,” Malik said in a statement. “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 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight.”
The rest of the band—Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson—will continue on without Malik. “We’re really sad to see Zayn go, but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future,” they said in a statement. “The past five years have been beyond amazing, we’ve gone through so much together, so we will always be friends.”
One Direction sans Malik will be on their world tour until it concludes Oct. 31 in the U.K.
Zayn Malik has left One Direction’s tour of Asia and has returned to the UK after being signed off with stress.
A statement said: “Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the UK to recuperate.
On Wednesday the singer declared his love for his fiancee, Little Mix star Perrie Edwards, after photos emerged of him with his arm around another woman.
Zayn Malik along with Louis Tomlinson had faced losing more than £3,000 each if they were caught using, or promoting, illegal drugs in Manila.
The pair were asked to post bonds of 200,000 pesos each for a special work permit, ahead of two concerts in the Philippine capital this weekend. It’s after a video appeared last year of them both smoking what they called “a joint” in Peru. Possession of a small amount of cannabis is not illegal there.

If you rewind your mind to just under a year ago, you might remember a very curious pic of One Direction (sans Harry Styles) hanging out in the studio with Fall Out Boy and the 1975’s Matty Healy.
It turns out that wasn’t just a coincidence that they were all in the same place at the same time, and FOB did actually do a bit of songwriting with Niall, Liam, Louis and Zayn while they were in London.
Known for their soaring pop punk inspired anthems, it’s no surprise that 1D were keen for a musical hook up and opening up about the experience, Pete Wentz has revealed that he reckons there’s a reason the track they worked on didn’t make the final cut of Four.
Frankly even the idea of FOB and the 1D massive being in the same room together is basically a tumblr punk edit come true, and Pete has nothing but good things to say about the lads.
But if you’re wondering just why you haven’t heard any of the songs they came up with together, Pete reckons it might be because they were just a tiny bit too odd.
“Last time we were in London we wrote with the guys in One Direction,” Pete explained. “It was a great session but I don’t know if Fall Out Boy writes what One Direction wants to sing.
“There’s a certain area of odd that we can stake a place in, but it’s like we have the language of twins. Maybe it’s too odd for One Direction because they didn’t end up using the songs this time.”
