One Direction’s Zayn Malik has taken a leave of absence from his band’s world tour following rumors of infidelity. Malik, who is engaged to British pop group, Little Mix member Perrie Edwards, was pictured holding hands and seemingly getting a little to close with another women while touring in Thailand earlier this week.
In a statement released on the matter, a spokesman cited stress as the reason for Zayn Malik’s departure from the tour. “Zayn has signed off with stress and is flying back to the UK to recuperate. The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta.”
The 22-year-old Malik took to twitter yesterday to refute the rumors of his alleged infidelity to his 14 million plus followers. “I’m 22 years old… I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there’s a lot of jealous f***’s in this world I’m sorry for what it looks like x”.
It would appear as though Malik’s leave of absence is so that he can go back home to the UK and try to patch things up with his fiance’ before eventually rejoining One Direction who will continue on with their world tour, which runs through October.
