Zayn was always thought to be the most reluctant member of One Direction from the start. His mother even admitted that the day of his first X-Factor audition he wanted to back out and leave due to nerves.
Directioners everywhere are devastated with the news, remembering when fellow band member Liam Payne tweeted during their concert in Orlando, Florida "
We introduce ourselves as Liam, Naill, Harry and Louis because we aren’t One Direction without Zayn". So what’s next for 1D? How can they go on without the vocal talents of Zayn? Seriously, who’s going to hit those high notes now? After being put together by Simon Cowell for 5 years the band became instant stars, even being compared to iconic boy bands such as The Beatles. Cowell had this to say about Zayn’s departure:
"I would like to say thank you to Zayn for everything he has done for One Direction. Since I first met Zayn in 2010, I have grown very, very fond – and immensely proud – of him. I have seen him grow in confidence and I am truly sorry to see him leave." I’m pretty sure the rest of the world is sad to see him leave as well. No word yet on how the rest of One Direction is taking the news, but I think we can go ahead and assume that they’ll be sad to see him go as well.
