Zayn Malik Cancels Japan Shows As It's Reported He's Still Battling Anxiety
The singer has pulled out of shows in the past due to his mental health.
Oh so you thought you knew Zayn Malik? Bet you didn't know THIS...
Zayn Malik fans with tickets to see him perform solo in Japan have been refunded after the former One Direction singer cancelled a number of gigs he was due to perform there.
According to The Sun, the shows were initially rescheduled before being cancelled altogether with the reasons given being the fact Zayn is just too busy 'planning his debut world tour' and that there's been a 'change in the recording shedule'.
However a super secret 'insider' apparently reckons the singer's anxiety could be the real reason behind the cancellations and tells the paper: "If he never performs, there's a danger his solo career will flop."
The 24-year-old pullled out of performing at Capital's Summertime Ball last year, later admitting his anxiety was the reason for his decision.
Andwhile Zayn could be worried about taking to the stage completely solo, it's worth noting that the star spoke to The Times earlier this year about facing similar struggles throughout his time as one fifth of 1D.
In the honest interview Zayn also revealed he struggled with an eating disorder, claiming eating was the only thing he had 'control over' in his life thanks to their exceedingly busy schedule.
There's no doubt Zayn will smash it whenever he takes to the stage solo but of course his mental health should always come first. Four for you Zayn, you go Zayn.
