Celebuzz reports that a close source has revealed to them that the: Record label management fear that One Direction star Zayn Malik is on the brink of walking away from the band. Shell shocked Malik has been “in a haze” for the past few days, according to a well-placed source — amid concerns about how he is coping with fame.
Malik, 20, was “rocked to his core” when ex Australian stripper Courtney Webb went public with claims they’d slept together behind the back of his girlfriend, Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. But a band insider tells Celebuzz that Malik was already becoming disillusioned and detached about his life in the limelight with One Direction. The hunk, who comes from West Yorkshire, England, has found it difficult spending so long away from his close knit family, the insider added Even their record label chief Simon Cowell has stepped in promising he will not overwork Malik or his bandmates Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan. Cowell has even offered Malik extra time off.
However, in practice, the lads’ 2013 will be fraught. They have been rehearsing hard for their tour, which starts on Feb. 23 in London and ends in Tokyo, Japan in Nov. 3. Even during their August break, they will have to promote a concert movie and documentary, which they are filming the entire time on the road. A source connected to the band reveals “there is growing concern among the bosses that Zayn is on the brink at the moment.”Supposedly they only need to fulfill a 3 year contract together as a boy and #theENDisnear… Will YOU still listen to 1D without Zayn/ follow Zayns solo career?
