Is this really why Zayn Malik quit One Direction? Someone with a little insider information, that isn't a former bandmate or Naughty Boy, is weighing in on just how much of a drain the non-stop touring was on Zayn.

One Direction's frequent songwriter, Jamie Scott, recently revealed to Sunday People that "Zayn went because he'd had enough." He added, "Have you ever been on the road for four years? These guys aren't at home. There is no way the same thing is going to run through all five guys, that they're all going to want to be on the road so much together. Eventually he got to a point where he'd had enough."

Jamie further explained Zayn's thought process, saying, "It was, 'OK, I don't want to be in this band any more.' It was that simple, it was human instinct kicking in. People want it to be complicated and have secret reasons but that is what it was."

He also reinforced that the remaining One Direction members won't face a breakup "if the music keeps reinventing," adding, "As long as the music is not dying and they're crossing over to older fans, there is no reason to break up and they want to go on and keep the ride going."
