We could be seeing a Zayn Malik/One Direction reunion if his on-again girlfriend Gigi Hadid has any say! HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that she’s pushing him to get back together with the guys for the sake of his mental health.
While Zayn Malik, 23, struggles with being able to perform live as a solo act, his lady Gigi Hadid, 21, thinks the best medicine to cure his social anxiety problem is getting back together with his former band mates in One Direction. HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that she’s pushing him to put his solo act on hold and get back to the security of being in his old band.
“Gigi is urging Zayn to get back together with One Direction for his health. Zayn has always suffered from anxiety and since he has gone solo, it has only gotten worse. Publicly Gigi has been very supportive of Zayn’s troubles and privately she has been advising him to seek refuge with the guys in One Direction. She knows they have had their ups and downs over the years, but Zayn was always able to perform with his mates around him,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Zayn can’t get it together on his own, he is more comfortable in the group. He is great in the studio alone but performing for large crowds is too much for his anxiety. Gigi’s advice has been for Zayn to get back together with the guys, do some touring and once he feels better, venture off on his own career again,” our insider adds.

Zayn had no trouble when he played in front of millions of fans for years as part of the boy band, but as a solo act, he’s struggled with appearing live. The singer’s troubles were incredibly evident when at the very last minute he pulled out of CapitalFM Summertime Ball in London June 11 due to scary anxiety issues.
After all the dissing Zayn did on his former band after going solo, he may have burned all of his bridges with the guys. “Lots of things have been said and done since he has left One Direction. First the guys need to approve such a major reversal of decision. Lots needs to happen before a One Direction reunion tour takes place but it is a possibility. The band needs to get back together first before they can welcome him back,” our source adds. What a sad reminder that the four guys still need to make 1D come alive again, because we miss them so much!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Zayn will be able to keep going as a solo act?
