In case you missed the news that made us weep into our family size bag of Doritos yesterday, Zayn Malik has been signed off One Direction’s On The Road Again tour for stress.
Whilst we’re trying to restrain ourselves from Fedex-ing ourselves over to his house to give him a big squeezy hug, his mum has been speaking out to let fans know how he’s doing.
Speaking at her own home in Bradford, the lovely Trisha reassured fans that our fave ‘single strand of hair-owning’ boyband member is doing ‘fine’.
According to The Mirror, she said: “I have spoken to him and he’s fine. We have been in contact.
“I cant say where he is going to go.”
If we’ve learnt anything over the years, it’s that a quick chat with our mum can INSTANTLY make us feel better, and it sounds like it’s working for Zayn too.
The 22-year-old’s worried younger sister Waliyha’s has also allegedly spoken out after the news broke of Zayn’s tour break, asking fans to ‘pray’ for her big bro.
According to a post shared on Twitter, Waliyha wrote on MazSight: “Don’t worry guys, Zayn is going to be okay very soon. All the stress has just gotten to him because of the rumours and hatred he has heard and received.
“It’s really hurting him, some people are just giving him to much. People need to realize my brother is human to, stop hating him because he hasn’t done anything to anybody, except for defending himself because of what people have heard of what he did, but it isn’t true. [sic]
“I love my brother to death, and I do not want to lose him for anything, it hurts me to see him not feeling good. Please pray for my brother, please help him because I know he will be okay. Please stop sending him hate and getting on him for what he has “did”. [sic]“
HOWEVER, fans have now pointed out that this isn’t Waliyha’s real MazSight account. BOO.
Yesterday, The Sun reported that he’d pulled out of a commercial recording with his band mates in Hong Kong to fly home.
Simon Jones, PR for the band, released a statement saying: “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.”
Now, friends have come forward to insist that NOTHING HAPPENED in Seduction nightclub, Phuket, between Zayn and ‘mystery blonde’ Lauren Rich.
According to The Mirror, a friend has said: “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.”
Liam Payne has also tweeted to say “What a day,” before posted a hilarious video of Niall Horan dressed as some sort of old farmer guy. AMAZING.
You lovely lot also got #HaveAGoodRestZayn trending on Twitter, because you rock.
Let’s hope Zayn can be left to get the rest he needs (AKA lots of cuddles from mummy Trisha) so that he can rejoin the boys soon.
