At least someone is sticking up for Zayn Malik!
So, when news broke that Zayn had decided to leave the band, Nick Jonas knew exactly what he must have been going through.
In a recent interview, Nick spoke on behalf of the ex-1D member, saying:
“It’s always tough, you know, there’s never an easy time to make a decision like that. I commend him for doing what he feels is right for him and you got to stay true to yourself.
I feel for the One Direction fans and I hope they’re doing OK, but you know, it’s one of those things, that sometimes it’s just time to close a chapter.”
The chapter is closed, that’s for sure… but it’s unclear whether or not if Zayn may have had some help in making his spontaneous exit.
Still, it must be nice to get support from someone who successfully made the transition from boy-bander to solo artist.
Do U think Zayn has what it takes to follow in Nick’s footsteps??
