This must be so hard for Harry, Liam, Louis and Niall. Zayn’s been a part of the band since the beginning. Zayn’s like family. HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that the boys tried everything to get Zayn to stay with the One Direction.
“Harry and his bandmates initially tried to convince him from quitting,” a source 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.”
After Zayn revealed he would no longer be a part of One Direction, everyone was desperate to find out why he decided to quit. HollywoodLife.com found out the answer, and it’s completely heartbreaking and shocking.
“Zayn felt like he had to quit 1D or he would die!” a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com. He just couldn’t handle everything that came from the insanity of fame and being a huge celebrity.”
Poor Zayn. We sincerely hope he finds his happiness. We love you, Zayn!
