It's official, Zayn Malik has finally revealed the REAL reason behind leaving One Direction, confirming what we knew all along - of course he NEVER intended to become a "normal 22-year-old."
Last night, the young star shared the following Tweet with his fans (scroll RIGHT to see it); "I guess I never explained why I left , it was for this moment to be given the opportunity to show you who i really am! #realmusic #RCA !!"
Zayn proceeded to share a black and white photo of himself happily signing the deal with RCA Records - the same label as Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Shakira and G-Easy.
Speaking to The Sun, a source revealed; "Simon [Cowell] has set up a deal that suits Zayn and One Direction. Zayn will stay in the Sony family under a different label and it's totally with Simon Cowell's blessing.
"It was just a bit difficult to have 1D and Zayn on the same label - and everyone felt it was better for him to be somewhere different.
"Since leaving the band, Zayn has changed management and lawyers so it would make sense for him to work with a new label team."
So what the hell was all the drama about with Naughty Boy? It all just seems so...pointless.
