502 Bad Gateway


Here at Ginger Clam we’re still weeping into our Kleenex after the 22-year-old revealed he was quitting the group on Wednesday, leaving Harry Styles and Co a man down.

Zayn has now opened his heart in a phone call to The Sun newspaper in London, during which he confirmed that he and fiancée Perrie Edwards of Little Mix are still an item.

Zayn said of his decision to quit: “It is crazy and wild and a bit mad.”

The star added he’d been unhappy in the band for some time, saying: “You know, I did try to do something that I wasn’t happy doing for a while, for the sake of maybe other people’s happiness.

“And that was mainly the fans. I only ever tried to do it for the fans, and it was only ever for them. And basically, I’m only upset (because) I feel like I may have let them down in some sort of way.”

Meanwhile, Zayn isn’t ruling out reunion at some point in the future. When asked about rumors that he might return he said: “I really don’t think I can answer that. I don’t now.

“I am just going to chill man, I’m just going to be me for a while.”

Meanwhile, The Sun says Zayn is working on a solo release with producer Naughty Boy.
