One Direction: Drugs Abuse Would Have Been One Reason To Admire The Sun’s Zayn Malik

by | 18th, November 2014

ONE Direction singer and sort-of dancer Zayn Malik has “blasted drug abuse claims made about him by a presenter on live US TV.”

The Sun’s story goes:

After the singer, 21, missed a trip to America, Today Show host Matt Lauer asked his four bandmates: “There have been rumours of substance abuse, what’s going on?”

Zayn last night told The Sun: “I’m really angry and upset by what was said on The Today Show. I was really ill at the weekend, that’s why I couldn’t fly to America.”

Hell hath no fury like a slighted 1D-er!

Lauer raised unsubstantiated online rumours about drug use in front of millions of viewers, during a massive televised gig by his band in front of 15,000 fans in Florida.

Rumours? This is what the Sun wrote:
