The 24-year-old singer quit the boy band in March 2015 before they went on a hiatus, but since departing the Drag Me Down hitmakers he has not spoken to Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan or Harry. Zayn – who is in a relationship with model Gigi Hadid – previously opened up about his struggles with an eating disorder while in One Direction, but these days he insists he’s in a better place.
Zayn Malik has seemingly been keeping a dignified silence since his ex-fiancee, Perrie Edwards, started dishing the dirt on their romance and break-up, but it appears as though her comments have struck a nerve behind the scenes. In fact, Zayn’s new girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, is reportedly keen to meet with the Little Mix star to tell her to stop talking about her beau. What makes it all the more awkward is that the supermodel wants Zayn to orchestrate the get-together – and we can’t imagine that he will be jumping at the chance to do that.

It was recently confirmed that Zayn Malik is set to executive produce a television series loosely based on One Direction, and his old boss, Simon Cowell, is not happy. In fact, the X Factor judge is pretty fuming that Zayn didn’t approach him about the show first. Zayn has joined forces with Law & Order’s Dick Wolf and his wife Noelle for ‘Boys’, a scripted show about the formation of a successful boy band, with the couple eager for Zayn to share his own personal experiences for the show.
Zayn Malik fans have been left concerned after the star cancelled yet another performance due to his “extreme anxiety”. The former One Direction singer was due to perform in Dubai next month but he has already pulled out of it as his confidence has hit an all time low. Writing in an open letter on his website, Zayn shared: “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.
It’s 2016, and we’re all social media crazy. We all want to know who Taylor Swift’s latest boyfriend is, we all spend hours flicking through Kylie Jenner’s Snapchat, and we all want to know what matching outfit Rihanna and Drake are wearing next, but somehow, there is still a stigma around being a “fangirl”.
