Liam Payne Claims Zayn Left 1D To Save Relationship With His Fiancée

Ever since Zayn Malik left One Direction, there has been rampant speculation as to why he did.

There were many theories floating around, but none of them were ever proven.

Now, we may finally have some answers as Liam Payne spoke out about Zayn's departure.

Liam went on a British radio show and confirmed what many of us believed to be true: Zayn left 1D to mend his relationship with his fiancée.

Payne said,

Sometimes you have to move on because you're not enjoying what you're doing as much as you used to... He wanted to spend time with his family and his missus. That's cool with us.

Zayn is engaged to Perrie Edwards of the English pop group Little Mix. There seemed to be some tension in their relationship after photos emerged of Zayn with other women.

While Zayn may have saved his relationship with Edwards, he destroyed the ones he had with his former bandmates and many of his fans. Was it worth it, Zayn? Was it?

Answer me, you son of a bitch.
