Zayn Malik has been in the headlines for getting shade from One Direction and his ex, Perrie Edwards. Regardless, is it his potential location change from Los Angeles to England that fans should be paying attention to?
If fans look at the timeline of stories closely, it appears that Zayn Malik might be heading home to England before too long.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Zayn Malik seemed to take off for L.A. right around the time that he broke up with Perrie Edwards in the middle of July.
Although most fans did not find out about the breakup between Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards until August 4, People reported that they actually broke up around July 17.
As the month went on, Zayn Malik fans learned that he broke up with Perrie Edwards via text message — and fans were worried about his partying lifestyle.
Then, on August 29, the Daily Mail stated that “mama’s boy” Zayn Malik had invited his mother, Tricia Malik, to Los Angeles. They went on to say the following about how happy Zayn Malik was to have a reminder of home in Los Angeles.
“He looks to be adopting a bad boy reputation… But it seems Zayn Malik is still very much a mother’s boy at heart … Holding his mother by the waist, the former One Direction star looked thrilled to be back in her company as each of them offered a gleeful grin whilst exiting the restaurant.”
It was reported by the Daily Mail in a separate article that Zayn Malik had actually brought over his mother and three sisters for a mini-vacation.
Altogether, the holiday in Los Angeles cost Zayn Malik £70,000 — but his mother and sisters, Doniya, Waliyha, and Safaa, were worth it. Included was a “£2,000-per night suite at the upmarket Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills.”
However, less than a week later, it was reported on September 1 by the Coventry Telegraph that Zayn Malik was inviting someone else to Los Angeles from England — Neelam Gill.
It is unclear if things ever panned out with Neelam Gill and Zayn Malik — but England seemed to start coming up more often starting in October.
On October 2, the Mirror reported that Zayn Malik might perform at the MOBO awards show. Interestingly, the awards show will be held just a few miles from Zayn Malik’s family home near Bradford at the First Direct Arena in Leeds.
Does this mean Zayn Malik might definitely return to England soon? From online reports, it appears that if Zayn Malik joins the MOBO awards to perform, the ceremony will take place on November 4.
Then again, Zayn Malik might want to stay away from England for good. A second report from the Mirror on October 12 talked about Zayn Malik wanting to sell the house that he and Perrie Edwards bought before they broke up.
According to insiders close to Zayn Malik, the following was said about his plans for England.
“Zayn is desperate to sell the property and start his new life in Los Angeles … She moved in with him when they got together so he thinks she should go.”
SugarScape reported on August 17 that Zayn Malik has been looking for a house in Los Angeles — but nothing is set in stone just yet.
On September 24, UnReality TV reported that Zayn Malik might be working with Aiden Grimshaw — in England. According to insiders close to Zayn Malik, he and Aiden Grimshaw “are planning to get together for a songwriting session when Malik returns to the U.K.”
Allegedly, Zayn Malik and Grimshaw got together after Zayn signed with RCA. In fact, Aiden Grimshaw’s reps confirmed that “Aiden and Zayn have been in touch with a view to doing some writing or working on a track.”
Adding to the idea that Zayn Malik might move back to England — things might be heating up again with Perrie Edwards.
According to a Mirror report from October 18, via the Daily Star Sunday, insiders close to Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards report the following.
“Zayn has started messaging Perrie again saying he misses and still loves her … Although Perrie is trying to be strong and move on, it’s obvious to everyone around her she’s still in love with Zayn.”
