Zayn Malik Leaves One Direction: Read His Official Statement and Get Details on the Boy Band’s Future!


One Direction and Zayn Malik are headed in different directions.
Malik announced that he is leaving the group via the boy band’s official Facebook Wednesday afternoon. “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 apologize 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,” he said.
Calling Niall Horan, Liam Payne , Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson his “four friends for life,” Malik added, “I know they will continue to be the best band in the world.”
Horan, Payne, Styles and Tomlinson will continue as a four-piece band and said they will honor their remaining world tour dates. The quartet will also record their fifth album, “due to be released later this year,” without Malik’s involvement.
