Even though Zayn Malik dismissed all of those tweets and claims of him being a cheater, it seems as if the backlash just took too much of a toll on the singer.
The One Direction crooner is reported to have pulled out of two tour stops to fly back home to the UK to be with his family.
Simon Jones, a PR consultant for SYCO, tweeted out the information:
We also reached out and another rep for the band confirmed Simon’s tweet.
They said, which is basically the exact same thing Simon said:
“Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the UK to recuperate. The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta.”
This statement comes just a day after the 22-year-old was berated for supposedly cheating on his longtime girlfriend and fianc├â┬⌐ Perrie Edwards.
Those speculations of infidelity emerged when Zayn was seen getting close with another girl that wasn’t the Little Mix singer in Thailand.
A source told The Sun that the international star finds dealing with fame really hard and the backlash he received from the recent incident was too much to handle.
“Zayn finds it tougher than the rest of his band-mates dealing with fame. Having his every movement scrutinized causes great anxiety and the pictures which surfaced with the fan yesterday was the final straw.
He did nothing wrong but the amount of criticism he received was simply too much. He needs to get away.”
Hopefully this time off will help Zayn gather his thoughts and get back on tour with the rest of the guys.
The singer is reportedly supposed to return for a show in South America on March 28th.
Take care of yourself, Zayn! Even celebrities need a day off from all the craziness that goes on in their world.
