Unfortunately it's no longer something to imagine, it's a reality, confirms Simon Jones, the band's UK rep.
Zayn has dropped out of the tour temporarily due to "stress" and won't return back to the band until March 28. "Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the UK to recuperate. The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta," reads a statement from Simon, posted on his Twitter account.
Although stress has been said as the reason behind the member dropping out of the boys band, his cheating scandal is another reason which is said to have made his drop out of the hit band.
He got negative feedback after he reportedly cheated on his fiancee, Perrie Edwards, with a mystery blonde girl identified as Lauren Rich. This cheating scandal has somewhere affected Zayn due to which it is rumoured he left One Direction.
It is also being reported that Zayn pulled out of recording a commercial with the group in Japan on Thursday, March 19, and flew home to the UK to deal with the aftermath of his alleged cheating.
