We are very sad to report that Zayn Malik has had to rush back to the UK due to the death of a family member.

Zayn Malik is back in the UK following the death of a family member 

Last night Harry Styles tweeted the news:

‘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…’

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

We don’t know how long he’s going to be in the UK for, but we’re sure all Directioners can agree that he should take as long as he needs.

However, the Big Time Rush/One Direction tour still continues and according to the Daily Mail, Niall will be taking Zayn’s singing parts while he’s away.

Although Zayn hasn’t personally tweeted anything, he did retweet something a fan had written:

‘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.’

We really hope Zayn is ok and as Harry rightly said, our thoughts are with all of his family at this sad time.
