One Direction: This Is Us - World Premiere - Red Carpet Arrivals

A week after announcing he was leaving the One Direction world Tour due to stress, Zayn Malik has now announced he is leaving the band.  But why? Zayn has released his staetment ” “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.”
