This will leave his ‘Zquad’ devastated! UK fans that were looking forward to seeing Zayn Malik perform at the Capital Summertime Ball on June 11 have had their hopes dashed! The One Direction star has canceled his performance at the concert because of anxiety, he has claimed on Instagram. Read what he says here!
Zayn Malik, 23, was supposed to be one of the headliners for the Capital Summertime Ball on June 11, but at the 11th hour he’s pulled out of the show letting down scores of fans. How heartbreaking for them? Zayn took to Instagram to explain his decision, admitting he has been having severe anxiety problems about getting up on stage and performing in front of thousands of his fans.
Now, Zayn was supposed to be part of an action-packed event at Wembley Stadium, with over 80,000 people expected, and he was one of the headliners. However, just one and a half hours before he was due on stage, he revealed his anxiety has got the better of him and he won’t be able to take part in the show.
“Unfortunately my anxiety that has haunted me throughout the last few months around live performances has gotten the better of me,” he wrote. “With the magnitude of the event I have suffered the worst anxiety of my career.”
His apology continued, ‘I cannot apologise (sic) enough but I want to be honest with everyone who has patiently waited to see me, I promise I will do my best to make this up to everybody I’ve let down today. I know those who suffer anxiety will understand and I hope those who don’t can empathises (sic) with my situation.’ ‘I cannot apologise (sic) enough but I want to be honest with everyone who has patiently waited to see me, I promise I will do my best to make this up to everybody I’ve let down today.”
Zayn was said to have flown into London on June 10, after being a seen earlier in the day with model girlfriend Gigi Hadid. Intriguingly, Zayn’s ex Perrie Edwards played the concert too with her band Little Mix. That’s purely coincidental, right?
Something doesn’t quite sit right here. After all, Zayn DID perform with One Direction in front of tens of thousands fans on multiple tours. But we’re prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt, because anxiety can be horrible.
