Tags: Zayn Malik, One Direction

You might remember yesterday how Zayn Malik was absent from a One Direction interview on the Today Show in the US. 

Today Show host Matt Lauer asked the rest of his band members “There’s obviously a lot of concern, a lot of fans have been tweeting overnight. Is it something more serious? There have been rumours of substance abuse. What’s going on?”
21-year-old singer has hit back today in The Sun “I’m really angry and upset by what was said on The Today Show… I was really ill at the weekend. That’s why I couldn’t fly to America”.

A representative for One Direction said in a statement “Zayn was taken ill after recording the Band Aid single at the weekend and was unfortunately not well enough to fly to the USA yesterday. He will join the band for promotion for the new album as soon as he possibly can”.

When the rep was asked about whether the illness was due to substance abuse they responded “We don’t comment on private medical matters”.
