Zayn Malik Might Leave One Direction [PHOTOS]
"Directioners" won't be too happy with the latest rumor down the mill. According to a lot of sources, Zayn Malik might be saying farewell to the group, One Direction. Is this due to all the talks of his womanizing and cheating ways? Surely, Zayn hasn't been affected by all the Hollywood gossip?
Hollywood gossip may sometimes rock the foundation of a certain celebrity. The same holds true for One Direction member, Zayn Malik who has been increasingly withdrawn due to all the scandals and rumors about him. Late last week, an Australian waitress claimed to have slept with Malik. All thanks to this scandal, Malik is rethinking the fame and is reluctant to stop his burgeoning career.
Due to the news of the tryst with the said waitress, Malik has been "rocked to his core." This wouldn't be the first time Malik had been under speculation of cheating on Little Mix girlfriend, Perrie Edwards. Back in August of 2012, Perez Hilton released a video of what looked to be Malik inviting a girl into his hotel. Right after the said rumor, Malik had quit his personal Twitter account.
The rumors keep going around and because of that Zayn Malik just might quit One Direction.
"There is growing concern among the bosses that Zayn is on the brink at the moment," claimed an insider.
"He feels that the last six months have been his toughest yet in the band," continued the insider.
"Even before the cheating scandal, Zayn was steering clear of nights out with his bandmates and sometimes would skip media events. He has been quite low at several points when being away for key family celebrations. But his pals have cheered him up. People forget he is the shyest member. Naturally, he likes the adoration and his day job, but he is battling to cope with the pressure which comes with it." added the source.
Malik certainly shouldn't be affected by all the gossip because that's just the way Hollywood runs. Given 1D is garnering quite the attention, it is just normal for all the rumors to come up from one corner of the globe to the next.
"Every step 1D makes is scrutinized and judged by the public and media. Their reputation as role models to teens is also weighing heavy on his shoulders as it is not natural for him to be bright, bubbly and smiley twenty-four seven," stated the insider.
"The five were urged to calm down publicly by management, and duck away from 'late night partying' 'sleeping with fans' and 'out of control drinking,'" continued the source.
As for Malik, with a three year contract on his name, there won't be quitting any time soon.
"No one in the management wants Zayn to leave or even consider quitting, with days to go before their biggest tour ever. He is a lovely, caring and funny chap - but there is no doubt fame has changed his outlook," stated the insider.
