Ah, such wise words of wisdom from one former boy band member to another!
No one knows what it's like to leave a successful group like Kevin Jonas, which is why the father of one sympathizes with Zayn Malik!
Even though the 22-year-old is trying his best to stay away from the public eye, the company he's currently keeping isn't really allowing him to stay under the radar.

In fact, some of the things Zaynie has been doing is giving him a bit of backlash, which is where the former Jonas Brothers guitarist's advice comes in handy.
Kevin stopped by Elvis Duran's morning show to give the young star some guidance in his journey as a former band member.
"I get it, completely. I also understand that in the midst of that intensity, he should go dark for a long time. You've gotta go dark for at least, like, six weeks because you gotta let it settle. You gotta let the dust clear. Because anything you do then will be scrutinized."
Which is very true. Kevin should know! He's gone through it — maybe not the scrutiny part, but you know what we meant!
Either way, it doesn't seem like the three week of darkness Zayn went through helped the pop star at all.
Guess he should go back under the radar for a little longer…
Listen to what else Kevin had to say to the Bradford-born singer (below)!
