One Direction News, Gossip and Photos
One Direction member Zayn Malik has decided to leave his famous boy band One Direction. The news was revealed on 1D’s Facebook page in the following note:
“After five incredible years Zayn Malik has decided to leave One
Direction. Niall, Harry, Liam and Louis 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.”
Zayn also had this to say about his big decision:
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 22-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.
Zayn’s fellow 1D members released the following statement about Zayn’s departure:
We’re really sad to see Zayn go, but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future. The past five years have been beyond amazing, we’ve gone through so much together, so we will always be friends. The four of us will now continue. We’re looking forward to recording the new album and seeing all the fans on the next stage of the world tour.
And that’s not all – Simon Cowell, who manages One Direction, responded as well, explaining:
I would like to say thank you to Zayn for everything he has done for One Direction. Since I first met Zayn in 2010, I have grown very, very fond – and immensely proud – of him. I have seen him grow in confidence and I am truly sorry to see him leave. As for One Direction, fans can rest assured that Niall, Liam, Harry and Louis are hugely excited about the future of the band.

Zayn Malik and fiancee Perrie Edwards spent five hours talking in Zayn’s home after he returned from the One Direction tour. Zayn left the tour due to stress, just after pictures of the 1D member cuddling with a mystery girl in Thailand surfaced.
Perrie was spotted leaving Zayn’s home after their conversation carrying a duffle bag. Some fans have speculated that the pair are gearing up to split, however Perrie was spotted wearing her engagement ring as she left Zayn’s home.
Do you think Zayn and Perrie will be alright? Take our poll!
One Direction member Louis Tomlinson has split from his longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder. According to a rep for the couple they broke up two weeks ago!
The rep spoke to People, revealing:
Louis and Eleanor split up two weeks ago. They have not announced this as they wanted some privacy during this time.
A source also spilled to the magazine:
Louis is really upset about it all. They tried really hard to make it work but it was just impossible, he’s away for nine months a year and they just grew apart.
So that means that Liam Payne and Zayn Malik are the only 1D members in relationships – although Zayn and Perrie are also rumored to be arguing – yikes!
Just after pictures surfaced of Zayn Malik getting cozy with a mystery girl, the One Direction member has left the 1D On The Road Again tour – citing stress as the cause of his exit.

I’m 22 years old… I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there’s a lot of jealous [people] in this world I’m sorry for what it looks like x
