Poorly Zayn Malik Walks Out Of Press Conference
Queasy 1D star forced to rush off the stage at Japanese event...
A queasy One Direction press conference in Japan after coming down with tummy trouble.
The 1D lads hit Tokyo yesterday, getting an "overwhelming" reception from the local fans. But just a few hours later, Zayn was struck down with sickness.
According to The Mirror, halfway through the press conference - where the boys announced they would be adding two extra tour dates in Japan - poorly Zayn rushed off stage.
A source told the paper: "He had been rubbing his tummy throughout proceedings, then suddenly, he took a deep breath and dashed off stage because he felt so unwell.
"The others were all looking concerned for a while, then Niall checked with management to see if he was OK."
The insider added: "They moved up to take his seat away so it didn't look too weird, while Zayn went back to his hotel to recover."
Happily, Zayn recovered enough to make it to another interview later that day.
Following their arrival in Japan, the Kiss You stars had been out sampling the local nightlife and showing off their vocal talents with a spot of karaoke.
Liam Payne explained: "We had a great night, it was loadsa fun. We sang lots of songs, in particular some Jay-Z, there was a 50 Cent number, the Baha Men."
But after trying sashimi, Harry Styles was forced to admit: "I hate raw fish."
