FEEL BETTER, ZAYN. Simon Jones, a spokesperson for the band, says that Zayn signed off from the tour because of stress
MANILA, Philippines – Say it isn’t so, Zayn!
It looks like British boyband One Direction will be a 4-man band for
now, after it was announced that Zayn Malik won’t be joining the rest of
the boys in Manila on March 21 and 22.
Simon Jones of PR firm Hackford Jones and a publicist for the band, wrote a statement on Twitter on Thursday, March 19, saying that Zayn flew back to the UK to recover from stress:
"1D statement: 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," he said, and also
confirmed to UK publicationDigital Spy.
The band recently paid the 'marijuana bond' the Bureau of Immigration required on
Thursday, March 19. This order was issued in relation to a previous
incident where Zayn and fellow member Louis Tomlinson were caught
smoking marijuana on video, which went viral in 2014.
They wrapped up their concert in Hongkong on March 18, Wednesday,
before coming to Manila, as part of their “On The Road Again” tour. – Rappler.com
