Zayn has travelled back to the UK

Zayn Malik is back in the UK because his auntie has passed away.

Harry Styles revealed yesterday that his One Direction band mate had left the boys’ US tour to fly home.

‘Zayn has suffered a loss in his family & has had to go home for a few days so won’t be at our next shows in the US…Tweeted Harry, 18.

‘…Our thoughts are with him and his family at this sad time.’

It’s now been confirmed that it’s Zayn‘s aunt that has died.

The 19-year-old is yet to acknowledge the sad news, though his latest Twitter post has suggested he’s finding comfort in religion.

‘God has no Phone, but I talk to him. He has no Facebook, but he is still my friend. He does not have a twitter, but I still follow him. ,’ Zayn re-Tweeted from the account Stay Strong Zayn shortly before Harry announced the news.
