Zayn Malik Reunites With One Direction On Stage: Singer Not Leaving 1D
The boys of 1D — Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan — arrived in Orlando earlier this week to promote the release of their new album, Four. When Zayn missed a Today show interview with his bandmates, Matt Lauer asked if his alleged illness had anything to do with “substance abuse.”
That shocking allegation sent fans into a tailspin. And quite frankly, it reportedly angered Zayn.
After the show, he spoke out to UK’s The Sun saying, “I’m really angry and upset by what was said [on Today]. I was really ill at the weekend, that’s why I couldn’t fly to America.”
Thankfully, Zayn is getting the last laugh because he appeared on stage with Harry, Louis, Liam and Niall on Nov. 18 — they’re filming a Christmas special for NBC.
