We're not so sure how to feel about this...
While we totally understand Louis Tomlinson's need to defend his good friend against the drug rumors, the singer took it one step too far!
Everyone wondered where the 21-year-old was, and as a result of that, Matt Lauer asked the band members if Zayn was out sick because of a rumored drug related problem.
Liam Payne revealed the singer was having a tummy issue, but Louis decided to nip it in the bud and actually spilled the tea on what was really going down with the 1D cutie during their event in Orlando.
WARNING: It's a bit TMI!
Where he belongs!
The singer reunited with his bandmates on stage in Orlando for a special performance on Tuesday evening for their beloved Directioners!
It's good to see Zayn back on his feet, and we're pretty sure his fans will agree. In fact, when the 1D singer took the stage, social media blew up with excitement!
Here are a few of the reactions to Zayn's return on Twitter:

Judging by this preview of the Night Changes music video, every Directioner is going to be able to experience what a date would be like with their fave!
Although this preview is a pretty quick one, we have a feeling a night out with Zayn Malik would be a pretty low key and classy one!
What in the world was he thinking?!?
The band members cleared up that he has a "tummy bug" but not before Matt Lauer did the unthinkable: he actually asked them if Zayn was missing because of substance abuse rumors!
One Direction took over the Today show Monday morning to perform their hits… ch-ch-check out Steal My Girl (below)!
But you may notice the special concert, filmed at the Universal Orlando Resort in Florida, was missing a little something.
The celebration of the release of 1D's new album Four had, sadly, only four members of the band!
Where is Zayn Malik??
As the boys explain, he's
Alright, Directioners! We have some good news, and we have some GREAT news!!!
The good news is that One Direction will FINALLY be gracing the world with their latest album, Four, NEXT WEEK!
The GREAT news is our favorite boy band has dropped another single to hold us over until then!!
That's right! 1D has released their second single, Night Changes, and once again it shows a
