There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

There may be an empty spot in the band because of Zayn Malik's absence, but the group has no intentions of finding a replacement!
Thank God, we're not sure if anyone could even fill Zaynie's shoes!!
The insider also revealed that there's ZERO talk of replacing the crooner.
The guys are reportedly talking to the Bradford native regularly and they completely respect his decision to leave the band.
Perhaps they also knew about his struggle with the spotlight since the beginning??
Regardless of the current situation, at least they're all on good terms.
Besides, it's not like any of the guys had a falling out or bad blood towards each other during their AH-Mazayn five years together!
