Popular English band, One Direction member, Zayn Malik, is taking a break from boy band for some days.

The band recently announced that Zayn had decided to head back to England to deal with stress, while other members of the group continue to perform on their On The Road Again Tour.

'Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the U.K. to recuperate. The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta,' a statement released by the band’s publicist said.

According to The Mirror, the singer pulled out of a scheduled shoot in Hong Kong, where they performed last night, Wednesday, Mach 18, 2015, to fly back and be with his family.

The Mirror further reported that Zayn will miss the next three tour dates, but hopes to return for the concert in South Africa on March 28.

Zayn's exit from the group for few days is coming a day after he was pictured with 22-year-old Little Mix singer, Perrie Edwards.
