Zayn has taken time off following the death of a family member...
Directioners across the world also felt great sympathy for him and many came to Sugarscape to leave their support. Pithousem said:
“This is absolutely horrible news and I hope him and his family get all the support they need to get the through this truly emotional time. R.I.P, Every single directioner’s thoughts are with you guys xxxxxxxxxxx Love you forever”
While Fi12mch left:
“Zayn, please know that we're here for you. We love you, and we respect your privacy. Stay strong, and take care xx”
Aguszurro sent some love from faraway lands: “Our love and strength from Argentina, we love him!”
Marglindy4 wondered what the boys’ shows would be like without the Zaynster...
“I’m going to the show tonight and wondering if it’s their first ever performance they’ve done without all the boys. It’s truly sad, I was looking forward to seeing Zayn but my thoughts are with him and but of course I’ll support whatever he has to do <3”
And Aida spoke against people that had been unfairly leaving him abuse on Twitter.
“Poor baby! I've already seen loads of tweets with people insulting him.. And it's just NOT okay! He lost a family member, and he needs to take as long time as he needs, and just spend some it with his family. The tour AND the fans will be there when he's ready to come back x.”
Insulting a guy while he’s grieving? We’re a little astounded by that.
Again, we send Zayn and his family lots of love and support during this difficult time and hope they stay strong.
