The fans out there can take a sigh of relief as this has been confirmed by the star himself that he is not leaving the band.
The appearance of the four members of the band at The Today show perturbed the fans to an extent that they surmised about Zayn going solo. They thought that he is leaving the band. Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson,Niall Horan, and Liam Payne came to the show to promote their album FOUR.

The absence of Zayn Malik left a question mark and when the host of the show Matt Lauer asked the members about the fifth member Liam answered that he had a “tummy bug”.
The situation became odd when Matt in response said that this will leave many questions and the fans should make themselves ready for some disturbing news. He said, "There's obviously a lot of concerns, a lot of fans have been tweeting overnight.”
This statement made the audience to think about the reasons in a different perspective. Matt further said, “Is it something more serious than just a minor illness? There have been rumors of substance abuse. What's going on?"
Basically Matt was pushing the members to spill out some shocking news. However there was nothing like that. He tried hard but the member kept on repeating the same reason.
In response to the embarrassing situation Zayn got angry which was obvious. We all know about the love and unity that the band shares. Zayn got really angry and while giving interview to The Sun he said, “I was really ill at the weekend, that's why I couldn't fly to America. I was gutted to have to miss album release day, but I’m going to be back as soon as I can”.
So this gave his fans a relief that after all these rumors he said that he is staying with the members. In order to show his love for his fans and other members he further said, “As soon as I'm feeling better I'm going to join the guys and carry on with the promotion for the album”.
He is a man of words and showed this by appearing on very next day on the stage to join the other members. It happened on 18th November one day after the show.
So this shows that Zayn is not going anywhere. One Direction is incomplete without any of the five members. Together they complement each other. Matt should have refrained from speaking anything of that intensity. His questions twisted the situation but all is gone and Zayn is staying.
