Zayn Malik was really stressed about NWFW. The fans, the crowds and the chaos. That was until his supermodel girlfriend swooped in. Now a source tells Hollywoodlife.com EXCLUSIVELY how Gigi Hadid was able to talk him down from the ledge, and onto a plane to NYC!
Zayn Malik, 23, has been candid about the anxiety that has plagued him throughout his career, but he just may have found his cure, in the form of gorgeous, blonde, 5’10 Gigi. It forced him to cancel a concert in Dubai, and he wasn’t sure if he would be able to handle everything NYFW can throw at you. But cometh the hour, cometh the lady!
“Zayn’s anxiety is so much better in the last few months because of Gigi,” a source close to the glamorous couple reveals. “He just feels so safe and secure with her. Like he’s complete. He was so nervous about NWFW because of all the crowds, but she really helped him get through it.”
But wait, it gets better! It’s not just the mere presence of his gal pal that Zayn finds so comforting, she’s also acting as his honorary naturopath!
“Her mother is kind of a health guru, so she’s turned Gigi on to all kinds of natural techniques to combat his attacks- yoga, mediation, deep breathing, GABA supplements. At first Zayn said his anxiety was too intense and that he could’t meditate, so they started with guided meditations, but now he can do TM.”
Perhaps Zayn can put his days of canceling his shows behind him! He had to cancel his October Dubai show because his stage fright escalates to crippling levels when he has to perform solo. Back in September he wrote on Instagram: “Dear Fans I have been working over the last three months to overcome my extreme anxiety around major live solo performances. I feel I am making progress but I have today acknowledged that I do not feel sufficiently confident to move forward with the planned show in Dubai in October. He added, “I am truly sorry to disappoint you. I hope to see you all soon.”
HollywoodLifers, what do you think? Has Zayn become too dependent on Gigi? What will happen to him if they break up?
