Zayn Malik: The Reason Why He Left One Direction For Good

“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 EXCLUSIVELY.

‘Before being in One Direction he was just a goofy kid who never really fit in. He didn’t have a ton of friends and was awkward in social situations. Suddenly he was thrust into the limelight of being on world tours. He had girls being thrown at him, drinks being handed to him and he was supposed to be the coolest kid in the club,” the source went on.
