Zayn Malik DROPPED By Simon Cowell's Label Syco Ahead Of Solo Career Launch?

Zayn Malik has been dropped by Simon Cowell’s label Syco ahead of him releasing any solo material, according to reports.


It means Zayn won’t be label mates with his former One Direction bandmates when he eventually unveils new music.

Simon Cowell is said to have made the decision out of loyalty to 1D stars Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson after Zayn quit the band.

Zayn also has brand new management to help mastermind his solo career.

He has cut ties with Modest management who look after One Direction in favour of Turn First Artists, who manage Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding and Iggy Azalea.

Earlier this week, Zayn lashed out at his former pal and collaborator Naughty Boy, following leaked clips of what appears to be his ‘No Type’ music video, a collaboration with rap duo Krept & Konan.

The former One Direction singer had some not-so-nice words for the producer as it seems that he thinks the producer could be responsible for leaking the clips online.
