It’s a sad day for directioners!
Rumors began swirling early this morning that Zayn Malik had left One Direction and now his reps have confirmed the news. Well, Zayn isn’t officially leaving the band, but he has left the current 1D tour due to stress related issues.
The band’s rep released a statement saying, “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.”
We are bummed about the news but wish Zayn a speedy recovery. He came under fire this week as cheating allegations hit the web, which he immediately took to twitter to debunk.
I'm 22 years old… I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there's a lot of jealous fucks in this world I'm sorry for what it looks like x

So far Liam Payne is the only band member to take to twitter today simply saying:
What a day

We know we’re not the only ones hoping Zayn has a good break and rest. Fans have already made “HaveAGoodRestZayn” the #1 trending topic on twitter. Are you sad that Zayn has left 1D temporarily?
