It was the news that Directioners around the world were dreading… Zayn Malik (apparently) wants to leave One Direction for good!


The Daily Star is reporting he’s in talks with his lawyers to see if “get-out” clauses in his contracts allow him to leave One Direction for good – with hopes he can quit his gruelling schedule and commitments in order to spend more time with his family and loved ones. 

Zayn’s representatives are set to examine his music and commercial contracts to see where he stands – but rumours suggest it’s highly unlikely he’ll be able to escape his 5-year contract with Simon Cowell

Just last week Zayn left the groups' world tour to spend some time at home and with fiance Perrie Edwards,. This followed intense media speculation that the star had cheated on his lady. 

A source close to Zayn, 22, said yesterday: “At the moment he’s convinced he wants out. He is finding it all too much and wants to quit the group."

“His legal team is seeing what the situation is. There is a strong chance he will have to fulfil his commitments and he might change his mind once he’s had time away from the spotlight.”

Word has is the One Direction boys signed a five year deal with Simon Cowell, which included 5 albums... and they’re only in their their 4th year right now.

The contract is reportetly water-tight and he’s unlikely to be able to get out – luckily for him there's only another year left, right?
