One Direction Spokesperson Confirms Zayn Malik Is Not Quitting The Band

7 February 2013, 13:56

The 'Kiss You' band had faced growing rumours that Zayn had become disillusioned with the group.

One Direction star Zayn Malik has dismissed reports he was considering leaving the hugely successful boy band.

The 'Little Things' singer had faced growing online reports this week that he was "on the brink" of wanting to quit One Direction, after widespread speculation about his relationship with Little Mix star Perrie Edwards.

However, following yesterday's (6th February) rumours on Celebuzz, an official spokesperson for the 'Live While We're Young' five-piece has now denied the claims.

"Zayn isn't leaving the band," they announced in a statement to Digital Spy today (7th February).

The 'One Thing' singer and his girl band star girlfriend Perrie put on a united front in the north of England earlier this week when they were spotted hand in hand after Little Mix's show in Liverpool.

Zayn was also seen cheering the 'Wings' singers on during their show from the rafters, where a fan reported hearing him shouting, "I love you Perrie!".

One Direction launch their 'Take Me Home' world tour at London's O2 Arena on 23rd February.
