Oh, no! Zayn Malik has dropped out of the One Direction world tour due to stress allegedly caused by the recent allegations he cheated on his fiancee, Perrie Edwards.

Zayn Malik, 22, has broken the hearts of millions after it was confirmed that he has dropped out of One Direction‘s current tour. Apparently, it’s “stress” that caused Zayn to leave the tour, which many are assuming was caused by the claims he cheated on his fiancee, Perrie Edwards, with a mystery blonde girl previously identified as Lauren Rich.
