Harry Styles And Louis Tomlinson Cry On Stage In Final Concert With Zayn Malik
It was an overwhelming night for the lads of 1D as they stepped onto stage for the final time with Zayn, who announced today that he would be leaving the band he had been a member of for the last five years.
Zayn’s absence was initially thought to be temporary, as he had returned home to deal with the fallout from an alleged cheating scandal. But he shocked the world and his fellow band mates on March 25, when he announced that he would be leaving 1D for good. Harry in particular fought to keep Zayn with the group, but he ultimately decided that it was best for his health to leave.
“Harry and his band mates initially tried to convince him from quitting,” a source close to One Direction told HollywoodLife.com. “They even begged him to stay because they didn’t want him to make a decision he would regret. But in the end he had to go.”
Zayn Felt He Had To Quit Or He Would Die
Despite the impassioned plea from his band mates to stay with the group, Zayn felt that he had no choice but to leave.
“Zayn felt like he had to quit 1D or he would die! He just couldn’t handle everything that came from the insanity of fame and being a huge celebrity,” an insider shared with HollywoodLife.com. “All the temptations were just too much for him. He was losing a grasp on who he was and what he really wanted, while not making the best decisions,” our insider added.
What do you think Hollywoodlifers? Should Zayn have left One Direction?
