Great news, Directioners! Zayn, 21, is here to stay.
“Zayn isn’t leaving the band, they aren’t breaking up. All is well,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “There is zero truth to the rumors of a breakup. Everyone can rest easy!”
Speaking of which, during a 2012 interview with Barbara Walters, the boys all scoffed at the idea of pulling a Timberlake and going solo. Niall Horan said, “I wouldn’t do it. We’re together now, and that’s it.” Zayn seconded that, saying, “It’s not even a question.”
Of course, a lot can happen in two years, so it’s nice to have some fresh reassurance!
