Zayn Malik has officially landed back in London after the news broke that the lovely boy himself has been signed off One Direction‘s On The Road Again tour due to stress.
Accompanied by a female aide, Zayn looked understandably sombre as him and his glorious facial fuzz made their way through Heathrow airport.
*Insert hugs here*.
His hair might have been totally on point as he arrived early this morning, but he looked a little tired whilst walking through the airport, although that’s pretty darn understandable considering the ridiculously amount of stress he’s had to deal with after *those* cheating accusations.
The 22-year-old was dressed in jeans and plain white tee, covered with a leather jacket that does funny things to our insides and accompanied by boots that were probably made for walking straight into the arms of his gorgeous girlfriend Perrie.
Before heading for some much-needed mumma Trisha cuddles, we assume.
Seriously, if we could send hugs and ice cream through the internet, we really really would.
The news that Zayn was signed off the OTRA tour for a few dates broke yesterday, with Simon Jones, PR for the band, releasing a statement which said: “Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the UK to recuperate.
“The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta.”
The Sun also reported that he had pulled out of a commercial recording with his band mates in Hong Kong to fly home
A source told the paper: “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.”
His mum Trisha has since spoken out to reassure fans that her son is a-okay, which is good news.
According to The Mirror, she spoke at her own home in Bradford, saying: “I have spoken to him and he’s fine. We have been in contact.
“I cant say where he is going to go.”
Zayn was forced to deny that he had cheated on his fiancee Perrie Edwards after a photo emerged of him holding hands with a girl now identified as Lauren Rich on a night out in Phuket.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote: “I’m 22 years old… I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there’s a lot of jealous f**ks in this world I’m sorry for what it looks like x”
According to The Mirror, a friend has also now insisted that NOTHING HAPPENED between Zayn and Lauren in Seduction nightclub, with the friend apparently revealing: “He spent two minutes with her at the club.
“She grabbed his hand and he was happy to pose for a photo. But it has turned into this whole other thing online.
“He was really p***ed off about what everyone was saying. He can’t handle fame. It was the final straw.”
We know we’ve said it many times before, but we really do hope Zayn can now be left to get the rest he needs after the stress of the past few days.
