Zayn Malik To Miss One Direction Tour Following Cheating Speculation

Zayn Malik is set to miss a section of One Direction’s 'On The Road Again' tour.

The singer has been signed off with stress, meaning he’ll miss three concerts due to take place in the Far East during the next week.

A source adds: “Zayn finds it tougher than the rest of his band-mates dealing with fame.

“Having his every movement scrutinised causes great anxiety and the pictures which surfaced with the fan yesterday was the final straw.

“He did nothing wrong but the amount of criticism he received was simply too much. He needs to get away.

“The band’s management accept he needs some time off so he’s been sent home with their blessing.”

Zayn is expected to rejoin his bandmates before their Cape Town concert, on 28 March.

On Wednesday evening, pictures appearing to show Zayn holding a mystery girl’s hand during a night out in Thailand emerged online.

Fans later identified the blonde woman, when she posted a snap of herself and Zayn on Instagram.

The Bradford-born singer took to Twitter, writing: “I'm 22 years old... I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there's a lot of jealous fucks in this world I'm sorry for what it looks like x.”

1D’s huge 'On The Road Again' tour kicked off in February and isn’t due to finish until October. Liam Payne summed up the band's thoughts with a tweet...
