Is Zayn Malik planning to quit One Direction? After leaving the tour temporarily due to stress following rumors he was cheating on Perrie Edwards, we fully expected there would be plenty of rumblings that Zayn wants to quit the band.
Okay, breathe. This is just a rumor at this point and we're taking it all with a giant grain of salt because we think he just needs some down time from the tour and will be back with the boys again soon.
A source, however, told the Daily Star that Zayn's lawyers are trying to find a "get-out" clause in his contract because he "wants out" of the band. This all sounds rather hasty, right?
The insider spilled: "At the moment he's convinced he wants out. He is finding it all too much and wants to quit the group. His legal team is seeing what the situation is. There is a strong chance he will have to fulfill his commitments and he might change his mind once he's had time away from the spotlight. But as it stands he's not keen to continue."
We'll keep a watchful eye on this latest rumor, but we don't think Zayn's absence from the band will amount to more than just taking a bit of a break.
