He lost 50,000 followers on Twitter and was slammed by a number of heartbroken Directioners for his decision, but has learned exclusively that Zayn Malik, 22, has been told by fianceé Perrie Edwards, 21, that leaving One Direction was the “best thing” he could’ve possibly done after his struggles with One Direction’s massive fame.

Perrie Edwards On Zayn Malik Quitting One Direction: ‘Best Thing’ For Him

“Perrie didn’t really realize the extent of Zayn’s problems until he came back home after quitting One Direction,” a source tells “He really was quite fragile, and mentally shot to pieces about fame, fortune and everything that goes with that. But on their holiday in the south of France, she’s been telling him that leaving 1D was the best thing he could’ve done for himself. If he had stayed, the consequences could’ve been a lot worse.”

The Little Mix singer has been comforting Zayn by reassuring him that everything will turn out for the best. She’s been by his side amidst everything.

“Perrie’s been reassuring Zayn that everything will be ok,” our source continued. “She says they should concentrate on trying to live normal lives. She’s been his rock through all of this and has really stood by her man.”

As previously reported, Zayn has taken to transcendental meditation in an attempt to combat the stress and pressures of fame while on holiday in France.

“With all the pressures he’s under, it’s really good for his mindset,” our source said. “It’s helped Zayn focus on where he’s at and what he has to do next.”

Whatever can help Zayn be better than ever as he works on his solo career and achieve some inner peace — we say go for it!
