Being a member of the biggest boyband on the planet, Zayn Malik has been subject to a fair few rumour storms in his time. 

For example, the Bradford Bad Boi is currently being accused of cheating on Little Mix girlfriend Perrie Edwards with an Australian waitress, who claimed she did the horizontal tango with the One Direction star last week.

With that in mind, we're taking a look back at the ourageous, the funny, and the pure ridiculous in a little feature we like to call: ZAYN MALIK’s MOST SCANDALOUS MOMENTS.

Whether true or compete fiction, you can’t deny that he’s made a few headlines…

1. CAN'T DANCE WON'T DANCE: Controversy surrounded Zayn from the very beginning of his career – remember when he refused to dance at X Factor bootcamp? Thankfully he overcame his shyness, and now loves nothing better than shaking the ol’ bootay.

2. REBECCA FERGUSON: While Harry Styles is commonly considered to be the most cougar friendly of One Direction, it was actually Zayn who pioneered the ‘dating a much older woman’ movement.

Zayn and Rebecca – who both appeared on The X Factor in 2010 - revealed they were dating (despite a ten year age difference and Rebecca having two children) in March 2011, but split just a few months later. Oh the scandal.

3. THE RISE OF THE BADGER: We remember the moment like it was yesterday. Twas the Olympics closing ceremony, and One Direction were performing MEGAHIT What Makes You Beautiful. Suddenly, we spotted something out the corner of our eye.

IT WAS THE BADGER QUIFF. The creature took up residence in Zayn’s barnet for a good three months, before being replaced with a floppier, fringey ‘do. We miss it.

4. BYE BYE TWITTER: In August 2012, the world pretty much IMPLODED when Zayn quit twitter, supposedly over racist abuse. Coincidentally, a pretty scandalous video (in which a guy could be heard asking a girl back to his hotel room) surfaced online.

The girls who recorded the footage – which was too blurry to identify who was speaking, what with it being filmed through their door’s peephole and all – claimed that the owner of the voice was Zayn, despite the fact he was dating Perrie Edwards at the time.

5.  BOOTY CALL: Back in September of last year ANOTHER recording emerged –  this time of a phonecall, that allegedly featured the voice Zayn as he gave some American girls directions to his hotel.

The gals in question were heard telling Z-Dawg not to worry, he’d be getting his ‘booty' soon - sparking rumours that the Bradford Bad Boi cheated on Perrie later that evening. TWAS DRAMATIC.

6. THE WANTED FEUD: It’s no secret that The Wanted and One Direction don’t get on, but things came to a head when Zayn called Max George ‘chlamydia boy’ on twitter - after some increasingly hostile banter between the pair. Eeek.

 

SHEESH. What do you make of all that then?
