This Zayn Malik drama looks set to get worse before it gets better, with busybodies now coming forward to claim that thanks to the 22-year-old’s departure, all five members of One Direction missed out on a £10Million loyalty bonus.
Y’know, just a casual 10 milly, nothing major.
According to new sources, all five members of our fave band were guaranteed £2million each if they fulfilled the terms of their record contract, but thrifty Zayn felt that he’d already made enough money so he didn’t feel the “incentive” to stick to his part of the deal.
An insider dished: “There’s a massive loyalty bonus for each member if they fulfil their record deal.
“But Zayn didn’t even want the money. All he ever wanted was to buy his mum a house – and he’s done that so there was no incentive for him to finish the tour, let alone make a fifth album only to spend another six months on the road.”
Alright mate, calm down, it’s touring the world not being sent to Azkaban.
As if to rub salt into the already very painful wound, a supposed ‘friend’ has also come forward to claim that Zayn dumped his bandmates via text message to avoid them trying to talk him out of it.
The ‘friend’ told Heat magazine: “He texted the boys then announced it. I don’t think he wanted anyone to be able to talk him out of it.”
Anybody checked the credentials of this mate? Because this sounds like a pretty harsh rumour to be spreading if it’s not true…
Zayn’s shock departure from the band less than a week ago has caused a whole load of controversy within the One Direction fandom, with his loyal followers perfectly accepting of his plea to be a “normal 22-year-old”, only to be taunted by music producer Naughty Boy who rather cruelly leaked the Bradford boy’s first solo demo.
Not cool, not cool.
All in all March has been an absolute whirlwind of a month within the 1D fandom, and we can only hope that April is miles less dramatic.
Give yourself a pat on the back, guys – we’ve survived March Madness.
