And now, more news about this divorce is coming to light from both camps.

It has been almost two months since the 22-year-old left the band, leaving the world of Directioners devastated over his swift move.
While fans are slowly and surely getting over the loss, everyone can't help but constantly wonder how the rest of the group is doing without Zaynie!
It's definitely something that had to be answered these past couple of months and Payno has taken on the responsibility of giving the perfect response to questions of how the rest of the guys are doing.
"Yeah, of course! I mean you know, he had to do what he had to do really, for himself. It's fine. We're just going to carry on doing what we're doing. We wish him all the best with whatever he goes into and stuff. We'll just have to see what happens. It's like any other job really…
It's like anybody else at a job, sometimes you have to move on because you're not enjoying what you're doing as much as you used to sort of thing. He wanted to go and spend some time with his family, obviously with his missus. So he's just off doing his thing and that's cool with us. We'll just keep flying the flag and that's all we can do really."
Oh Liam, we miss him too and we can't imagine how the rest of the guys are doing without their other brother from another mother!
Hopefully one day the group can be whole again. But until then, we'll just have One Direction and Zayn Malik as two separate entities.
One day, Directioners. One day they'll be back together and all will be right in the world.
