Sorry girls, but looks like we won't be seeing Zayn Malik in Manila for One Direction's two-day concert this weekend, as it was officially announced that he will be taking a break from the band's "On The Road Again" tour.
It was confirmed earlier today that the 22-year-old singer had been "signed off with stress" and had flown back to the UK. His bandmates—Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson—are said to be "stunned" but fully "supportive" of Zayn's decision.
1D statement: Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the UK to recuperate. The band wish (cont) http://t.co/sqvOnQodYy— Simon Jones (@simonjonespr) March 19, 2015
An insider shared: "They were a little stunned at first, but realize it's for the best with everything he's going through with Perrie and the long-tour commitment, which really takes it out of you.
"It's up to them now to carry the torch while Zayn does what he needs to do, and they're up for the challenge of becoming a four-piece, instead of five. Harry, Liam, Niall, and Louis are very supportive of Zayn's need to recuperate and get his life back on track. They're like brothers and will do anything they can to help."
Zayn has reportedly been left stressed after he was photographed with a woman while partying in Phuket, Thailand. His decision to leave his bandmates in Asia was allegedly the direct result of an "ultimatum" given by his fiancée Perrie Edwards.
A source told HollywoodLife.com: "She was furious about the pictures of him holding hands with an attractive blonde fan, and delivered an ultimatum to leave the tour and fix their relationship.
"Zayn's been away on a world tour and it's difficult for them to maintain their commitment when they aren't together. Perrie reiterated, 'Get home if you want to sort this mess out, or we're done.'"
Zayn will be missing the Manila and Jakarta legs of their Asian tour, but we'll still get to enjoy Harry, Liam, Niall, and Louis though.
