Zayn is still afraid to go on stage all by himself
Zayn Malik has cancelled some more concerts amid reports that his anxiety issues are still preventing him from going on stage alone.
He pulled out of Capital FM’s Summertime Ball last year, later revealing his absence was due to anxiety. The former One Direction star has also cancelled some concerts in Japan, after initially rescheduling them.
According to The Sun newspaper, a variety of reasons have been given, including that there was “a change in the recording schedule” and that Malik is too busy “planning his debut world tour”, reports dailymail. co.uk.
“If he never performs, there’s a danger his solo career will flop,” said a source.
Malik released his own original material shortly after quitting the band in 2015. His debut single Pillowtalk racked up 13.3 million plays in the first four days of its release.
Zayn has been suffering with anxiety for quite some time now and has even called off his forthcoming gigs. In fact, the 1D singer had to pull out of the popular Summertime Ball because of anxiety. In an earlier interview, Zayn has also admitted to have developed an eating disorder during his time in One Direction.
