Zayn Malik: Why He Won’t Return To One Direction Anytime Soon, If Ever

He quit the band for a reason! Zayn wants to carry on solo and has no intentions of returning to One Direction, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal. He just doesn’t want the pressure of being in the world’s biggest group.

One Direction fans nearly broke the internet when rumors starting swirling that Zayn Malik, 22, was returning to the group. However, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that he’s definitely sticking with his solo career and why he may NEVER consider coming back to the group.


“Zayn wants to go solo, so he can try and fly under the radar and not have the pressures of being in the world’s biggest pop group,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Zayn won’t return to 1D, and certainly not before he can prove to himself and the doubters that he can forge a successful career on his own.”

It all started when Zayn’s bio was allegedly restored to One Direction’s website on June 14. Fans also discovered that his official statement about leaving the group was removed from their official Facebook page. Then, Twitter went crazy as “#zayniscomingback” began to trend all over the world.

But that’s just internet talk, our source says. Zayn is clearly determined to make headway in his solo career and not returning to the boy band. He is spending hours upon end in the studio, much to the worry of his family and friends.

Zayn Malik Booed As One Direction Continues Their World Tour

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Zayn is actually trying to distance himself from his boy band past — even dyeing his hair a variety of colors as he experiments with his look.

And the rest of the 1D boys appear to have lost none of their spark as a foursome – if their June 5 performance in the UK was anything to go by. In fact, the only time fans booed was when Zayn’s image popped on the big screen during an advertisement for One Direction’s perfume! Maybe he should stay away!

What d’you think, HollywoodLifers? Should Zayn continue as a solo act?
