Simon Cowell, who manages One Direction, has opened up about Zayn Malik leaving the group - and he's not super pleased by Zayn's decision! During a recent interview Simon explained, “I knew there was an issue, I knew he wasn’t particularly happy. I think he should have stuck it out.”
However, Simon added, "But look, he had his own reasons. Zayn had decided that he’d had enough. It’s his choice, not a prison sentence."
So, did Zayn's departure from 1D make a difference with the new Made in the AM album? Simon revealed, “I personally think it’s the best album they’ve ever made. Did it make any difference to the record? None whatsoever."
