Zayn Malik Cancels Dubai Performance, Cites ‘Extreme Anxiety’


Former One Direction standout Zayn Malik has announced he will cancel a scheduled October performance in Dubai due to his ongoing struggles with anxiety. This is the second such cancelation, as Malik felt unable to perform in June at a scheduled U.K. appearance, as well.

In a written apology to fans, Malik, 23, was candid about his struggles.

“I have been working over the last three months to overcome my extreme anxiety around major live solo performances. I feel I am making progress but I have today acknowledged that I do not feel sufficiently confident to move forward with the planned show in Dubai in October,” he wrote. “I am truly sorry to disappoint you.”
