Zayn Malik Straight Into Compton? L.A. Rumors Build

Zayn Malik left One Direction less than five months ago, and since then, his life has taken many unexpected turns. Nevertheless, is Los Angeles where Zayn Malik will start the next chapter of his ever-changing life?

In the recent past, things in Zayn Malik’s life have been dramatic, and it was unclear what his next move might be. While everything seemed to be in flux, there was one pattern in Zayn Malik’s world that seems to be emerging — and it involved Hollywood.

On August 5, BBC News reported that Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards had called off their engagement, and it was noted at that time that they were both in Los Angeles when the breakup took place.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, there were several instances where Zayn Malik was in Los Angeles over the last of July and first of August — and it appears that this is ongoing.

On August 14, Zayn Malik showed up at the Straight Outta Compton movie premiere wearing a shirt that said “truth.” Is this a sign that Zayn Malik is moving to Orange County?

New York Magazine reported on August 14 that “Zayn Malik and Jake Gyllenhaal started the week at Monday’s L.A. premiere of Straight Outta Compton, along with Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube.”

On top of that, Zayn Malik signed a record label deal with RCA in Los Angeles on July 29, and some of the artists associated with that label want collaborations with Zayn — and they live in Los Angeles.

For example, Chris Brown is hot for a Zayn Malik collaboration, and he lives in Orange County, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Of course, it would appear at first that the real reason that Zayn Malik may still be in Los Angeles is due to his participation in the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles on August 16.

Regardless, Hollywood Life stated on August 14 that insiders tell them that Zayn Malik’s rep says he will not physically be at the Teen Choice Awards — allegedly.

In the end, Zayn Malik will likely be looking for a place to stay since he has put his mansion in London up for sale. Thankfully, real estate gossips have been quick to publish their insider information about Zayn Malik and Los Angeles.

The Mirror published an article on August 15 giving one final piece of “evidence” that Zayn Malik might be moving to Los Angeles.

“Zayn [Malik], 22, has instructed several real estate agents to find him a home in the Hollywood Hills, where his neighbors would include Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp and former bandmate Harry Styles. He is said to have a budget of around £3 million. Meanwhile the singer is renting a gated mansion in Bel Air.”
