Zayn Malik left One Direction over two months ago, but 1D fans can't seem to let it go.
Lately, people on Twitter have been speculating about Malik's possible return to the boy band.
There has been no solid evidence this will happen, but that hasn't stopped fans from feeding the rumor mill by using the #ZaynIsComingBack hashtag.
Let me repeat: There is no official word Zayn is returning to One Direction.
It seems highly unlikely this will happen in the near future, if ever.
But the Internet loves to run with unfounded rumors.
So here are some of the tweets about the potential second coming of Zayn:
Some people have pointed to the fact that Zayn's bio is still on the One Direction website as evidence of a return.
Fans have been filled with hope, though it may be false.
Many fans are having difficulty dealing with all of this speculation.
And many of them are just plain confused.
Other 1D fans are more skeptical.
At the end of the day, we really don't know anything.
