Zayn Malik of One Direction will not perform in Manila concert
The singer returns to the UK and will not continue the Manila and Jakarta legs

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 publication Digital 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 before coming to Manila, as part of their “On The Road Again” tour. –
