Zayn Malik, 22, has left One Direction for good, which means we needs to get used to seeing Zayn at public events without 1D. Zayn will make his first public appearance since shockingly quitting the boy band on April 17 at Britain’s Asian Awards, according to a new report.

It was bound to happen. One Direction is continuing as a four-piece, so it’s only natural that 1D would start to emphasize that. Zayn was recently removed from the band’s newest tour poster, but he is still featured on 1D’s fragrance ad! learned EXCLUSIVELY that there’s no “bad blood” between Zayn and his bandmates after all the drama surrounding his departure. Whew! That’s good. We don’t think we could emotionally handle Zayn and the boys being angry with each other.
