1) Cheating Scandal — Days after Zayn announced he would be leaving 1D for good, new cheating rumors came out about the singer being unfaithful to his then fiancée, Perrie. Swedish model Martina Olsson, 24, said that Zayn, 22, had sex with her twice while he was in Thailand with One Direction the week prior. “He didn’t mention anything to me about having a fiancée,” she told The Sun. “He was really flirtatious.”
2) Naughty Boy released Zayn’s first solo song, “I Won’t Mind” — Who can forget that day when the first hint of a Zayn solo career appeared? Naughty Boy tweeted out a Soundcloud link to the demo of Zayn’s song, “I Won’t Mind” on March 30, and fans went crazy. They were excited, they were hurt — it was not even a week after Zayn had quit the band!
3) No hair, don’t care — When Zayn debuted his brand new buzz cut weeks after leaving 1D, fans were at a loss for words! He obviously looked amazing– he can do no wrong! He showed off his new look on the red carpet at the Asian Awards on April 17, almost one month after his departure from the band. New life, new look!

5) Green hair, don’t care — The evolution of Zayn’s post-1D hair continued on June 7 when a picture of Zayn with bright green hair hit the web. Sorry, Zayn — we don’t think green was really your color.
6) White hair, don’t care — Yes, we were also stunned when Zayn bleached his buzz cut, three days after showing off the green look! Hey, he looks hot no matter what, but every time we saw him with a new hair color, we needed a few minutes to process it!
7) Naughty Boy & Zayn break up — When Zayn called NB out on Twitter, we couldn’t believe it! The two were so tight ever since Zayn left 1D! Apparently, NB leaked a music video of Zayn on July 13 that he wasn’t ready to share with the world yet.

9) Zayn and Perrie split — This was a tough one to accept. We found out at the beginning of August and HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY leanred the reason behind the break up. “They barely saw each other and they hadn’t even had sex in over two months. The further they fell apart, the more anxious she got and the more she started pressing him to set a wedding date. She pushed and pushed and finally Zayn told her he didn’t want to get married,” a source told us.
10) Zayn posts pic with new blonde girl — This also stung — big time! We still didn’t want to accept that Zayn and Perrie were done, but after Zayn posted an Instagram pic on September 26, we realized we had to just move on.
