Zayn Malik quits British boy band One Direction

  • Zayn Malik has left the popular British boy band One Direction, the group said in a statement.

    Saying this was the “right time” to quit, Malik offered an apology to fans "if I’ve let anyone down”.

    One Direction will, however, continue their current tour with four members.

    Malik, who is engaged to singer Perrie Edwards, has been in the news recently after a photo emerged showing him with another woman. 

    The band said that though they were “really sad” to see Malik leave, they “totally respect” his decision.
