One Direction is reportedly “really worried” about Zayn Malik after he left the On the Road Again world tour due to stress. The singer is currently taking a break in the United Kingdom to spend time with his family and fiancé Perrie Edwards.
The remaining members of the boy band are set to perform in the Philippines without Malik. Their minds are not on their performance. Instead, their minds are on Malik’s wellbeing, a source told People Magazine.
“The rest of the guys are really worried about him but disappointed he’s not there. Their main concern is they want him to get better.”
“They don’t want him to quit. Louis [Tomlinson] is the closet to him and is the most worried.”
Meanwhile, sister Safaa is very protective of her older brother Zayn, according to a Hollywood Life report. She spoke out after he left the One Direction world tour after the rumors of his alleged cheating surfaced once again.
Safaa supposedly took to Instagram to defend her famous brother. She said that everyone should back off Malik for now. Safaa also told One Direction fans that he will be fine, and there’s nothing to worry about.
“Don’t worry guys, Zayn is going to be okay very soon. All the stress has just gotten to him because of the rumours and hatred he has heard and received, It’s really hurting him, some people are just giving him to much. People need to realize my brother is human to, stop hating him because he hasn’t done anything to anybody, except for defending himself because of what people heard of what he did, but it isn’t true. I love my brother to death, and I do not want to lose him for anything, it hurts me to see him not feeling good. Please pray for my brother, please help him because I know he will be okay… please stop sending him hate and getting on him for what he has ‘did.'”
Malik is not able to handle the pressures that comes with fame. According to a shocking E! Online report, the singer “doesn’t handle the attention well,” and still “has a problem with fame.”
An insider close to Zayn explained how he’s still struggling with his fame.
“He is just a kid. He wants to make music, but the spotlight that comes with it is hard. Fame is kind of catching up with all of them. It’s been a grueling and intense few years and it’s having a snowball effect now. Zayn would be happy with a low-key life. He has a problem with the fame—he doesn’t handle the attention very well, and every so often he has a little wobble.”
Malik is also hurt by the rumors saying that he’s cheating on fiancé Perrie Edwards.
“He is completely in love with Perrie. What happened in Thailand was completely blown out of proportion.”
More reports are coming out of that cheating scandal. The Daily Mail Australia reported that Zayn and the other guys were surrounded by “plenty of girls” that night. They supposedly couldn’t get their hands off the boy band. Yikes.
It all started when Malik was spotted with a mystery blonde at night club in the Philippines, as previously reported on the Inquisitr. The two were seen holding hands and dancing all night. The mystery woman, who’s named Lauren Rich, also shared a photo of herself with Malik on her Instagram, which is now set to private.
